Our First Ever DSC Desert Camping Trip is ON and final now!!

Our First Ever DSC Desert Camping Trip is ON and Final now!!

Dear all this is the final plan, we plan to go in  two different timings first batch will meet in Mirdiff city center @ 2.30 pm near Carrifore parking and

leave at 3.00 PM sharp,

Everyone please update your RSVP and inform us the suitable Batch Time with sms or Email.

and those who work till late will meet at 7.30 PM at the Emirat petrol station after national pain roundabout and leave @ 7.45 PM sharp, those who miss the convoy can meet us straight at Barracuda Beach Resort  between UMM AL-QUWAIN and Ras AL-KHAIMA. Very

close to Umm Al Quwain Aqua Park.

Members with cars have to inform us so we can arrange for car pooling.

(according to Austin who camped there in the past); where we will set up our tents and start our fire and set up the barbecue area. Ehab will be taking care of the Music. Each member has to pay AED60 in advance either to me, if you are in the Marina area, or to Austin if you are in the other side of town. All payments has to be in by Wednesday 20/02/2013. or pay it to your respective car owner.The AED60 will cover the food for the barbecue (meat, Chicken and Fish) and all soft drinks only.

Just to let you know, our only stop will be at Barcuda on the way :)))

You would need to bring your own tent and whatever else you need for camping.

Every one has to conform by phone or sms  to the organizer or we will not consider your RSVP,

I think this will be great fun, but we need at least 20 people to sign up for it to make it happen and have a great time,.

You can either contact me on:[masked] for payment in Marina area.

Or Austin on:[masked] for payment in Deira, Down Town, Bur Dubai.

Or Salwan on: 0506550380. for payment in Merdif area.

Lets make our first camping event great fun!

See you there!

Otto

    Hi people, I live in RAK. Are you planning to camp right on the beach the one just south of RAK, beginning of UaQ? If so, note that camping is illegal there. It has been for a while, however recently they put up new signs. Enforcement is another issue, seems to be rather inconsistent at best. However once in a while they do kick people off. Just so you know. Also come prepared w lots of heavy duty trash bags because certain people, we all know who they are, leave their trash everywhere, so you will need to clean upon arrival, aS well as pick up and take out your own when leaving (no clean up services on the UaQ beach nor removal of bags). If ur trip will be on, I'll come by and say hi. Ah also check the tide charts, about once a month it comes over most of the beach. :-)

    January 25, 2013

    Sounds good! Please keep me posted!
