Repeat my best meet-up of 2012 , beach and brunch ! Before the crowds come.

Let's show support to the Fire Island community after the wrath of  Sandy . Lets repeat a great event and do it even one better.. better the second time around . We wil meet in lot of Robert Moses walk to Kismet for an optional lunch in town. Of course you can brown bag or buy a snack from the grocery in town. It's all good. Wear comfortable shoes , bring water and sunblock and be able to walk about three or four miles total on mainly level terrain.

    Where were all the people who signed up? Only 10 showed up out of 30-It is the right thing to cancel, so that others on the waiting list could have signed up! You missed a great beach day,hike,seeing the lighthouse museum and nice outdoor cafe meal!

      Don't like to do it at height of season , lot fills very early and the restaurant is packed. But Early June or maybe just after Labor Day might work. Will see how things go.

    I personally think it just doesn't make sense to restrict the group size to such a small number, especially if the event takes place at an outdoor public space. What's the difference if 30 or 35 or even 40 people go? We are not children, we can follow the group and not get lost. The beach is obviously meant to accomodate large crowds. And the restaurant would have been happy to have more business. There is always a way to accomodate a few extra people. And we know that people sign up, but don't show up for whatever reason. There is nothing you can do about, it's just how it is. But by restricting the group size, the purpose of group members being able to meet many other members and being able to attend events is defeated.

      Not bad advice LG , you learn from experience and I think idea you have is a good approach . Anyhow as an adult I can take constructive criticism and try to make it work for me.

      I think I will not place a limit if I do this meet again. But I do hope more people inform if unable to make it. Some groups remove members after a certain number of a no-shows we are very easy going about that kind of Stuff .But still it is good to do a change to RSVP if unable to attend. The organizer is always thankful for the courtesy .

    I was there last night and huge dump trucks were in and out of field 5 constantly - so it's still under construction. Burma road is ok.
    I think the east west boardwalk from 5 was fixable - but there aren't any boardwalks to the ocean left. I know they are planning to re-open the lighthouse to the public on Memorial Day.

      Hmm . So it does not sound great for field 5 being open in ten days ? I guess we can take Burma Road to Kismet ?Janet can you field Annie

    • A former member

      Janet can you field Annie's question. Anyhow by Sunday I will let everybody know if it pay to move this up a few weeks to be safe rather than sorry. If we don't do it the 19th I will try to pr0pose a possible alternate activity somewhere . Shall see .

    Hi Liz I am sure there will be cancellations , and usually not all 30 go to the restaurant , but feel to keep the dynamic friendly and un-hectic 30 or so people works well for a beach walk , once you get to 45-50 gets a bit hectic.

    Why is there is such a long wait list? Is it for the restaurant? Can I just do the walk and skip the lunch? It's a nice walk and would love to met some new friends.

  • Ralph

    Is it 4 miles ROUND Trip to Kismet? OR is it 4 miles EACH WAY?

    March 19, 2013
