Singles Day at The Beach! Saturday July 20th

  • July 20, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This will be a super fun meetup!

It looks like singles events are very popular in this group so I'm setting up another one with one of the other groups I organize events for. It would be great to get 40 or 50 people all out for this.

This will be at Lake Sikome and tentative with the expectation that summer is going to hopefully start soon here!


Lake Sikome is always busy in summer and will definitely be busy on this long weekend. If people have a volleyball, or frisbee, or football please bring them.

MEETING LOCATION: South Parking Lot close to First Aid Station on the map link below...

***Other Details*** (updated July 18): Pack your own lunch--be aware that BBQ facilities are either limited or not available at this location. Bringing something to share is optional. Consider bringing sport equipment to share. *DO* bring bug spray, sunscreen, water bottle, hat, groundsheet/blanket or lawn chair (sandy area), spending money (concession stand available), towels for those who wish to swim, and be prepared for unexpected weather.

This is an ADULTS ONLY event.

Provincial Park Act applies, so NO alcohol allowed. Dogs not allowed on beach area...best to leave pooches at home, not in a hot car. Change rooms and shower facilities available. Staff are on duty to enforce rules. Swim at your own risk...Meetup and organizers do not take responsibility for personal safety and your participation means you accept this responsibility.

See you there! - Brian K

    South gate is open now. Sorry about the confusion folks, we found a spot on the south side beside the volleyball nets

    11:55 and south parking is still closed. It's hit and miss with what time it opens. Parker in north parking lot. There is still 20 parking spots here

    I might get there closer to 11. FYI, the south parking lot opens around noon or 1. Then you get the south half of the beach away from all the kiddies.

      Thanks for this post Jenny--now that I am Event Host, I'd like to use this suggestion and stay away from the families if possible. I'll go scope out the area tomorrow (Wed) evening and see before verifying our meeting location.

      The crowd will be different of course on a Wednesday night compared to a Saturday. But go down to land mark a meeting place or plan to have a flag or something to mark the spot. I live blocks away from this beach and so I go here regularly! Saturday morning the north side opens first and families come down early. Afternoon, the south side opens and that's when the adults seem to come. It's a little less crowded on the south side.

    Hello everyone! Please note the updated start time to noon on Sat. I am unfortunately no longer available to host this but long time meetup organizer Brian Kitagawa has graciously agreed to step in. There's about 30 people from another group coming and it will be a good mix of guys and ladies (I see that there's more guys than girls signed up in this group). Please stay tuned for an update from Brian. Hope everyone has a fun day!

    There are 14 people signed up in the other group so far so it looks like this should be a good event. Cross your fingers for good weather.

    Hoping it can be rescheduled, as I would love to attend, but going to be out of town this weekend.

    Looking forward to some beach volleyball ... is anyone bringing a ball? :)

    June 24, 2013

    • Brian K.

      Michael, Fred said below that Lake Sikome is closed due to flooding. Fred needs to find another place and/or cancel for this Sat and reschedule.

      Hey Brian, Been thinking about what to do for this and gonna reschedule. Been outside a lot the lost couple of days and the mosquitoes have eaten me alive. Thanks very much for the info. I may have it there or set something else up there.

    Hi Everyone! Well there are a lot, 30+ people, signed up for this but I am absolutely certain that Lake Sikome will NOT be open to the public next weekend, unfortunately, because of the flood. Before I reschedule the date on this, does anyone have any good suggestions for a fun outdoor place that I could change the location too? Thanks.

    Doesn't look like I'll be going away this weekend, but if I do I will update me RSVP.
