Union City, CA - Another great picnic for the 49er Empire. This time it was the 510 Chapter and the turnout was amazing! Empire family came from all over Northern California to hang out and meet fellow fans most of whom they may have never met otherwise. The atmosphere was electric and you can feel the unity and camaraderie in the air as everyone pitched in to do their part to help make this another successful event.
After much demand for another picnic from those who missed the much talked about 1st Annual 408 Chapter picnic a month earlier, 510 Chapter President, Auggie Perez who is also a longtime tailgater known as MINE 49 got together with the 408 Chapter Presidents Robert Garcia, Lisa Gutierrez and Bay Area Core Chapter President Jay Esperanza to plan this event.
We now know they did a great job cause on picnic day the babies came out!!!
And they brought their families with them...
The Ladies of the Empire were out in full force..
and of course the fellas held down their own!
DJ Mixtek of the 415 Chapter provided the sounds and rocked it all day.
David "HEAT" Canales performed and had the crowd's heads bobbing. Antonio Aravelo of The Red Zone tailgate as well Jorge Gutierrez of the La Klica Tailgate were representing as well. DJ Siq Riq came thru and closed out the day with his set.
Volunteer grill masters Marlon Allen, Abel Rueda, David Gauci and Carlos Guillen worked the grill...
