Up to now their picnic is held on the last Saturday of June, but it is still not clear if it will be during the third or fourth weekend. In the Summer of 2001 the club and local authorities inaugurated a plaque on Steans Mountain, above Fish Lake, in honor of the Basque sheepherders that wandered there in the 1800s and 1900s. In those days there were a hundred thousand sheep in that area; today there is only one flock remaining.
