There is no longer any Bingo. The Mainliner picnic will be at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
Mainliner Club (Who we are)
In 1939, William A (Pat) Patterson, then President and founder of United Airlines, asked Zay
Smith to organize a company picnic and a Christmas dance. Zay enlisted a few of his fellow
employees, and the social club they formed became the Mainliner Club. As United's route
system expanded, so did the network of Mainliner Clubs. Their purpose now, as was then, is
primarily to serve the social and recreational needs of United employees and their families. To
that end, Clubs plan, organize and conduct or sponsor sports events, dinner dances, summer
picnics, group outings and so forth. ....Beyond the enjoyment these activities bring to Club
members, they inevitably lead to heightened feelings of comradery among employees and of
community among Clubs.

We have many events and outings throughout the year as well as our scholarship program and
sponsorship of many athletic and other special interest Clubs and organizations. Due to the wise
strategies of those that preceded us, we are now able to operate the Club on interest income
from their investments. The current officers and members of the Club thank them very much for
their wise decisions early on.
