Barbecuing at MIBC
Picnicking and barbecuing at MIBC is a special tradition. Whether you bring down the whole family and pick your spot in the picnic area or it is just you and your significant other picnicking on the deck and overlooking Mt. Rainier and Lake Washington, there is a spot that meets your needs.
Our main picnic area includes a large number of picnic tables which are strategically located near the grills. There are four gas grills available for members to grill up their barbecue specialties. The picnic area is a great place to see a friend, meet other members or just share quality family time.
New this year, we have added more picnic tables in both the picnic area and in other areas around the club. There are now picnic spots located near the “Big Toy,” volleyball court, former putting green and in the tennis area.
For the enjoyment of all member (owner) families, please help keep the atmosphere family friendly and dispose of all garbage in the proper receptacles. Also, please help keep the Lost & Found to a reasonable level by checking you have all your belonging before you leave. If you need assistance, feel free to ask any staff person on duty (typically wearing a blue staff shirt).
