Groundhog Club Picnic September 11, 2010
The annual Picnic of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club was held September 11, 2010 on Gobblers Knob, Punxsutawney. At 4:30 the Trek to the Knob for Phil's ceremonial sip of Groundhog Punch was led by President Bill Deeley. The secret brew that has aided Phil in his remarkable longevity was downed quickly by Phil . The Picnic started about 1PM when the club fired up its grill for an afternoon of Hot Dogs, Keilbosa, Corn on the Cob, Roast Pig and legal beverages. At 5PM the club will serve a Steak Dinner. Much Footlball was watched and games played such as horeshoes and cards. Groups of Bikers took advantage of the beautiful weather to drive to Punxsutawney, notably including a group from Akron who appreciated the blues music set played and promised to return next year with a CD of their favorites.
