Beach Party at Montclair

  • July 7, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's finish out the 4th weekend and relax spending a day at the beach. This is a beautiful sand beach on Lake Montclair, which is a private community, so those of you coming will be my guests. Bring a picnic lunch/snacks and drinks, lawn chair, towels, blanket, etc. There are no changing facilities, so wear your bathing suits. We can hang out on the beach or on the hill overlooking the lake in the covered Pavilion, which will be ours for the day. It seats about 60 at picnic tables. There are charcoal grills, so if you'd like to cook, bring charcoal, lighter stuff, etc. We can play volleyball, which is available there, or bring any other games folks would like to play.

It's a great place to spend the day and we have the Pavilion from 11AM until dusk. Come for as long as you'd like.

Alcohol is technically not permitted, so if you bring any, please be discreet.

    Meetup Mexican Corn Dip

    3 cans Mexican Corn
    2 - 4 oz cans of chopped green chilies
    2 chopped jalapeno peppers (optional)
    5 green onions, chopped
    3 tablespoons sugar (or to taste)
    1 cup mayonnaise
    1 cup sour cream
    2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (or Mexican cheese)

    I added chopped roasted red peppers - give nice color to the dip and tastes good. Combine all ingredients, mix well. Refrigerate overnight. Serve with tortilla chips. Keeps in the refrigerator for 5 days. Yield: approximately 16 servings. For the Beach Party I tripled the recipe.

    Enjoy!

    I'm sorry I woke up not feeling well - if anyone hasn't left and sees this, hope you can help out with the cup shortage.

    Good morning,,, I wanted to know if I can bring my daughter along, and if there will be other children there,,, she is almost eight?

    July 7, 2013

    • Gail B.

      I think we already answered that. Children don't work well at these adult parties.

    My # is[masked] if you need anything, but when I'm in or by the water, I won't be able to hear it. Texting is better in case a message isn't clear. Also you can post on the site if you need help. Someone is always monitoring it and can respond. See y'all there.

    Okay, just checked out my plastic cup supply and I'm short, so if anyone else has some they want to contribute, it would be appreciated. I don't have time to go to the store.

      They don't like people putting the kayaks in at the beach. So, no.

    I will bring a green salad and deviled eggs to share.

    July 6, 2013

  • Lynn K.

    Any thought to making this a picnic for all with everyone bringing something to share with the group? Now that the RSVP's are closed I've looked at the first names on the RSVP's - Those with first names beginning with A and C could bring Appetizers; those with B, D, G and J - Main dishes; those with K and L - Salad; and those with M, N and S - deserts. All would bring drinks for themselves along with ice and plates/silverware. What would really be fun is if someone volunteered to bring charcoal for grilling and we could have hotdogs and hamburgers. I guess it's all wanting to bring food to share or not doing it at all and just making it an individual picnic. Don't want to make this too hard - Just a thought.

      honestly, I just want to RELAX and enjoy the beach & the people that will be there. I would like to keep it simple, relaxing, and not a lot of work for this event. Bring what we each want.

    I'll bring fruit salad. thanks for the suggestion of the back roads instead of 95 to get to montclair Gail because I was wondering how bad it might be on a sunday going south.

    Hi all. I can bring bratwurst or hot Italian sausages for the grill I have charcoal but I'm not the best charcoal lighter person. Can we get a volunteer to be the pyro person ?

    July 5, 2013

    • Lynn K.

      Glad to hear you are bringing charcoal - I'm sure someone can help get it going. I'll plan on bringing 2 dozen hotdogs/buns to share along with a Mexican Corn Dip/chips to share - and I've got dessert also.

      I'm bringing grilled peppers and onions per Margaret's request. Plus something else I haven't come up with yet. :-)

      July 5, 2013

  • Gail B.

    I am bringing chips and 4 kinds of dip. I will also have paper plates and napkins, plastic utensils and cups. Bring food to share and whatever you want to drink. There is no food at the lake, but there is a 7-11 right near by. There are also no changing facilities, so wear your bathing suits. Bring a chair or blanket if you want to sit on the beach. We have plenty of picnic tables in the pavilion.

      I intend on bringing food..but not to share; just a few ham sandwichs for me and another person. Hope this is okay.

      July 5, 2013

  • Gail B.

    Hey all. I definitely posted driving info on this and it seems to have disappeared. Please note that 95 has been an issue coming south every time I've had these parties. If you live over on the 66 corridor, come across 234 or 123 and stay off 95. If you are on the 95 corridor, get off at the earliest opportunity and come back roads. From 123, take Old Bridge to Minnieville and come to Cardinal Drive. If you can get off at the Beltway (from Springfield-go one exit west to Braddock Road) get off at Braddock Road, bear left at Burke Lake Road and take it to 123 and then to Old Bridge, etc. At least check one of the traffic sites to see how bad it is when you head out. We're about half an hour from Springfield without traffic.

    July 5, 2013

  • Lynn K.

    OK - definitely forget all about my thought about different people bringing different things as I'm told that most people bring things to share anyway - we can all just come and enjoy the day.
