     The next BaBar Friday social will be tomorrow - Friday August 28 th, 2009.
     As an experiment, we will try one event off-site, and plan to hold it in the 
     small park just opposite the lab. Turn left out of the lab, and then quickly
     first right, as you drive up the hill towards the freeway. The park is about
     two hundred yards down the road on the left hand side. Turn in, and park. If 
     you can, use the small parking lot on the left - beside a children's play 
     yard. The tables with shade - and tomorrow looks as though it may be hot - 
     are just beyond this area. There are seats, and a nice overlook of a small 
     The usual consumables  -  drinks and snacks  - will be served, and since we are 
     off-site, there will be alcohol.  Good judgment on the consumption of alcoholic 
     beverages in the heat, is advised.      Non-alcoholic beverages will, of course, 
     also be available. Everything on a first-come, first-served basis !
     Hope to see you tomorrow at 5 pm across from SLAC, in the little quiet, park with 
     swans and ducks.
