CLS and YGC hosted their 2013 Summer Picnic on July 9th at Yogi Berra Stadium, which is on the campus of Montclair State University in Upper Montclair, New Jersey. Yogi Berra stadium is home to the New Jersey Jackals, a minor league baseball team in the Can-Am (Canadian - American) league.
Not only was the joint-company picnic a huge success, the Jackals won Tuesday night’s game. Leading by one in the bottom half of the seventh, the New Jersey Jackals piled on four runs to pull away in an eventual 9-2 win against first-place Quebec.
YCG and CLS friends and family enjoyed the camaraderie at one of two private picnic grounds at the stadium. Chicken, fries, hotdogs, burgers, wine, beer and soft drinks along with an entertaining baseball game made for a great time; especially since those “30% chance of thunderstorm” predictions never even threatened to appear. Several of the kids retrieved foul balls and some of them even got autographs too.
Because this evening was so enjoyable, both companies plan on repeating the event in 2014; however, next year’s CLS / YGC picnic will be held on a Saturday to coincide with the fireworks that the New Jersey Jackals put on after every Saturday night home game.
