October (almost) Full Moon Drum Circle

The full moon circles have been popular, and most of the drummers like this location... so let's do another. We'll meet on the night before the full moon. On this night, the moon is scheduled to rise at about 5:34pm. We'll wait for the moonrise as we drum together with both soothing and energetic beats.

The park closes at 7:00pm. We need to finish our drumming around 6:30pm or at 6:45pm at the latest,  so we can exit the park on time. If we are late exiting, we will not be welcome to use the park next year.

Bad  or very cold weather will cancel this meetup. Cancellation will be announced by 7pm on the 27th, or perhaps in the morning of the 28th.

The park is BIG.... so, to find us, use the address above and LOOK at the Google map. Here is a convenient link:

From 101, you'll go east on Embarcadero Rd, and pass the PA airport (will be on your left); take a left at the T; go past the duck pond (also on your left). After that, bear right and proceed to a gravel parking lot at the end of the road.

The place where we drum is an area of soft gravel between the parking area and an arrangement of big concrete blocks. There is no seating, so bring your chair, stool, or an old blanket to sit on.

There is an outhouse nearby. Dogs are allowed. Handicapped access is poor. This location is always cool and windy in the evenings so dress warmly.

If your plans change at the last minute, please change your RSVP accordingly.

Extra drums and percussion instruments are always available.

    I enjoyed listening to your grooves as I ran the Baylands last night. Then was uber-cool to be able to stop by and shake the shaker for a while before finishing up my run. Thx for being there and sharing the good vibes!

    The moon rises at 5:34pm plus about 10 minutes because of the hills. The sunset is at 6:13. This is because it's the day BEFORE the full moon.
    I moved the start time to 4:30 to give us a little more time for drumming. If your schedule only allows you to come at 5:00 you are welcome to join in when you arrive.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
