Coronado Sponsored Saturday Beach Volleyball (9 to noon)

***  This event is sponsored by the City of Coronado.  ***  There are special registration requirements for attending.  ***

 

Come out and play!! Enjoy the beach; get some sand between your toes (and maybe in your ears if you like to dive.)

This group is social volleyball. We all like to play and we like games to be reasonably competitive (please, no complete beginners) but we're not serious hardcore (check out the 2s and 3s beach volleyball group if that sounds like you).

 

Registration:  In order to allow the group to play in Coronado, everyone will need to sign a Coronado Recreation Activity Waiver form for the city.  We will have waivers there, but it's probably best to print one out, fill out and bring with you to the beach.

Then, take your waiver and a $5.00 fee, which will cover all of 2014, to the Coronado Community Center. (1845 Strand Way, Coronado, CA 92118, (619)[masked] [map:https://goo.gl/maps/pC7sN]) You can either go before or after you're done playing on the beach for the day.  If you played before going to register, be sure to get your waiver back from the volleyball organizers before leaving.  You will need it
to create your account at the Community Center.  On Saturday, Coronado accepts payments from 10:00a-5:30p.  After they have finished creating your account, you'll be all set until next year.

Alternatively, if time is a little tight and you’re not going to be able to make it to the Community Center before they close for the day, the organizers will take any waivers that are left behind and give them to Community Center at the end of the day.  As long as your waiver is filled out completely and is legible to them, you’ll be able to call them during the week with a credit card and complete your enrollment process.

The organizers will not be able to collect any money at the volleyball courts.  The registration fee, which is used by the group and takes the place of Fun Bucks, helps defray the purchase and maintenance costs of all the equipment.

 

 

Directions:  From the Hotel Del, turn west and following along the beach (R.H. Dana Pl.) Take Ocean Blvd. all the way until it ends before hitting the beach. If you find yourself looking at permanent net posts or you do not see any airplane runway lights sticking up out of the sand, then you haven’t gone quite far enough. You’ll find us a little further down, across the street from Sunset Park. 

 

You must be at least over 18 years old to participate in this event.

If you arrive at 9am and you don’t see anyone, be sure to look past the sand berms, because if we’re on the ground digging the anchor holes for the nets, you won’t be able to see us.

The Meetup is from 9am – 12pm, but if you’re running a bit late, it’s OK. You’ll be teamed up to play in the very next game. Also, we often continue playing into the afternoon, until everyone gets too tired or too hungry to continue.

If it's hot out, consider bringing sand socks (or just regular socks). If it's raining, the game is likely to be canceled.  Otherwise, just bring yourself. Oh yeah, and sunscreen & water too.

    OK. I've taken a closer look at the gem-my stone that was found on the beach today. I'm almost positive that it is a green fluorite. I'll take it with me to class this week to get a second opinion, but I can say without a doubt that it isn't glass.

      I just want to say that I'm the one that "discovered" it. I don't care but hope that it's something interesting. :)

      We finished testing your stone, and I can say, without a doubt that it is a green calcite. It's not particularly valuable, but it did came as a surprise that it was found here on the beach. Most of the time, they are clear or white in color. ..a rare find indeed. I'll bring it with me on Saturday to get it back to you

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
