4th July Picnic?

  • Jul 2, 2014 · 7:00 PM

This Meetup is for Sailors of all levels and types, and Crew with training to meet licensed Captains and Skippers with boats. Therefore, feel free to attend our monthly meeting, or post one of your own, either on land or on the water. Thank you Steven, Kris, Brian and Wesley for posting events. Thank you Roxanne for hosting. Always open to suggestions for new events. (I would love somebody to give a talk about kite and wind surfing.) 

Any suggestions for the 4th of July weekend? I am out of town (Baton Rouge) and might still be gone then, so any help would be greatly appreciated.  

Do we  have a place?

Still need to nail down time and place...

Picnic at park? Open to suggestions.

Anybody for a pot-luck or BBQ?

Where is a good place to watch?

Is there another great Meetup to join?

    I thought it was the 2nd?? So you can't get "your act together" for either date?

      I was using the '4th' as a generic term for the holiday not the date of the event.....sorry for the confusion!

      I think it was on the calendar for the 2nd all along....no confusion here. Have a great 4th!

    Obviously, I could not get my act together to plan anything for this holiday, so everyone have a wonderful, safe and sane 4th of July and we'll see you on the other side....!!!

    Hi Everyone. Do we have a location?

    June 30, 2014

  • Roxann Jenkins D.

    I like Marie's idea...if we make it an actual sailing meet up then that will limit the number of "sailors" that can attend but if we make it at an eating and drinking establishment then all can attend that choose to. Maybe we will even get to see some fireworks as well! I like the Guy Harvey idea, it's new and I've been wanting to see it........and also, I didn't pick the date.......would anyone else like to change it to the FOURTH ...... how often does the 4th of July land on FRIDAY!!!!!

      Getting close now......Just made other plans

    I thought this was on 7/2, but if ya'll decide to do it on the 4th, then I'll probably come out to play. I'll keep a tab on which way the currents take you.

  • Marie S

    Keeping July 2nd open for this event.....do we know when and where yet???

    I never knew sailors were so indecisive!!! On the water this could be a big problem.

    So where are we going and on what day?????????

    2 · June 24, 2014

  • Lucie

    How about Phillippe Park In Safety Harbor.
    http://pinellas.obsres.com/parkshelters/GroupInfo.aspx It's beautiful and right on the water...surely we could see many firework displays. And I understand that you can reserve pavilions at the website above, however they might be booked at this late date. YES, my vote is to change it to the 4th!

    Wish I could join everyone but am getting Raven ready for a sail the next day. Order of the Day-HAVE FUN!

    Since we are doing this on July 2nd, how about rumfish the new bar at tradewinds guy Harvey outpost on st Pete beach? Really nice place, plenty of indoor and outdoor seating....beach bar with sofas, fire pit tables and street side indoor/outdoor with a/c outside, 35000 gallon fish tank, free parking.

    Closer to St. Pete area would be good.

    I said yes, but would also like it closer to Bradenton. Sometimes, things just don't get done. I agree with Roxann. We need to get more specific so people don't get left hanging. Either its a go or no! What does the $5 buy?

    I'm a no if the picnic is in tarpon......would take me 90 minutes plus plus to get there

    Greetings fellow captains, skippers, 1st mates, sailors and crew......it appears we have interest in a 4th of July gathering but to date we do not have a location or even the type of meet up we want to organize. Rene you have indicated that you may take a short trip from Hudson to Siesta Key but if you're serious, please post a 'meet up' event and provide a little more info and allow those interested to sign up so that you can get an idea of experience and availability, etc. For example: you're going to a family reunion, are you anticipating the same crew that goes down with you to come back with you? We can check to see if the venue at Safety Harbor is still available but may be doubtful at this late date, however, if fireworks are not a requirement we can always have another cookout in Tarpon Springs as we have before. Please post your ideas and suggestions.....!

    I have a family reunion on siesta key for the 4th and plan on sailing down there. So far, no one in my family wants to make the (I assume- two day )trip from Hudson to Siesta Key(will probably overnight at anchor in St Pete or thereabouts), so I may post an event for anyone who would like to accompany me -one way there and/or also one way back after the weekend). If truly hardy, and somewhat experienced crew volunteer, I will consider pushing through non-stop. I expect to leave on the second to arrive on the third, then depart on the 5th or 6th for return trip. Also - hope to head to the keys in late July and return mid August (spend two-three weeks exploring the keys). Will post event later -can accompany me part-way down or back (or one-way -or whatever. We can figure it out.
