Fall Picnic at Contra Loma?

I'm the first guy here. Am I too early or too late for the picnic? I love taking fall photos. The sky is overcast most days, no bright sun to cast harsh shadows and blow out color. I recommend fall photo safari's.

23rd Annual 19th Hole Casino Seafood Banquet Fundraiser

Photo (l-r) Ron Parish, Najee Harris, Katie Bookman Cook and Tom Lamothe.

Najee was nice and posed for many photos. After watching him for weeks evade tacklers I found him very approachable and very unassuming. I just can't say enough nice things about this fine young man. I wish him nothing but success.

The Seafood Banquet is a fundraiser organized by Eddie Beaudin & Steve Scudero, owners of the 19th Hole Casino. They do this to raise money for the Antioch High School Music Department & Football Programs. Way to go Eddie "Bo" & Steve.
