6th Annual Beach Party & Bonfire Bash!

Dear Friends-

Beach BBQ Party & Bonfire of the Summer:

One to Remember!!!! :-)

Multiple great Meetup Groups will make this

THE Beach Party of the Summer!

 

The beach party will now start at 12 Noon (2 hours earlier than we used to do it).

If you get to the beach between 12noon-1pm you will not have to deal with parking issues.


If you come between 1pm-4pm the Magnolia St Lot may be full/closed, so you can try entering at Brookhurst St and coming back up to the Magnolia lot. Or there is street parking on Magnolia or Newland St (but it is a hike). Please arrive early to avoid all these issues. If you come after 4pm, the parking lot will likely be open again.

We will begin BBQing at 3pm (2 hours earlier)

 

***We need help with the following***:

1) For people bringing tables, canopies, BBQ equipment etc, please drop off and set up your stuff at the beach in the morning. That way, everything will be set up by the start time- 12 NOON, and we can keep everything better organized. Even if you cannot stay, please at least drop off your supplies in the morning so that I and others can set everything up. I cannot be shuttling equipment from the street to the beach all day if the parking lot closes.
2) Please come early and help set up in the morning

3) Please help clean up trash throughout the day so that we will not be left cleaning up mounds of trash at 10pm.
4) Please help out with the cooking at the grill
5) For the trash that is there at the end of the night, please help to clean it up starting around 9pm.
6) Please help at the end of the night (starting around 8:30pm) break down equipment and take back to the cars, that way everyone gets out on time.
7) ***When you RSVP for this event please indicate how you can help with the above needs to make this a successful event**

 

Check out our Beach Party Video!

A BIG THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR HELPING OUT! :-)

- If you have any games you wanna play please bring them!
- If you have any suggestions to make this event more successful please let me know.

- If you know anywhere else to publicize this event please let me know.


Cheers!

    The "Happening Beach Party" - Update
    Tomorrow is the day for our Beach Party event which is the Event of the summer. We have volleyball lined up, OC Drum circle attending and volunteers bringing tables and EZ ups plus a few beach games in the works.

    We still need a few more tables, EZ ups for food area plus firewood for Fire Pits and of course volunteers are always welcome and are appreciated because without volunteers this great event could not occur.

    Event Tips:
    Event starts officially at noon but feel free to come earlier as the activity hosts will be there at 6:00 AM.

    Parking can be a challenge between 1:00 PM and 2:30 PM but normally after 3:00 there are spaces available.

    Bring food to share in disposal dishes and we will have at least one propane BBQ available. Shared food does not include drinks or ice chests.

    Clean-up is everyone responsibility. We start cleaning up food area at 7:00 PM.

    This area is patrolled by law enforcement therefore be responsible in your actions.
