Here's more info from the organizers of this event and what to expect when you arrive:

There are specific time slot to try the boards - so they will know exactly what time they need to be at the launch in order to try the boards. We've also added several additional beach activities people can also sign up for while they are waiting for their time on the water, like the indo boards, the kettlebell workout, the beach work out, bags games, etc. so there should be plenty to do as each person can sign up for multiple activities.


I do suggest as always to get there early. Registration opens at 7:30 and we start all the demos at 8...

 

I will get there by 7:30am just to make sure to help get set-up and rally everyone together so feel free to come during that time.  I'll be there till 11:30am.

 

Cheers,

Sue Chang

      Hello Michael- Absolutely no problem at all:). I know the weather and time wasn't the best for everyone and things come up but I'm sure ill have another event similar to this during this summer...or I told the girls who came that if any of you are interested in getting an intro-to-paddling session at Lincoln Park Boat Club on the SUP or outrigger canoes (OC), I'd be happy to do one. Just let me know if you're interested, ill set up a time/date. :). Cheers - Sue

      It was great meeting you and your friends yesterday. Really had an awesome time, despite it being cloudy and rainy, but it is afterall a water-sport =) Good times and hope we see you all again in the near future. Cheers-Sue

    Updated as of[masked]: I've posted some additional info. about what to expect on this meetup event. Since there are a couple of other meetup groups that will be attending, I'm hoping to rally everyone together for a meet/greet at the beach before/after we get our SUP on =) Just find a palm tree with a Chicago Flag attached to it. That'll be me!!! Also, there will be some retail vendors present but if you want to bring any snacks & drinks (non-alcoholic), feel free to bring them along. Look forward to seeing everyone there this saturday.

    Cheers,
    Sue Chang
