Geeks on the Boardwalk...Down by the Sea...yeah!

  • Jul 20, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Enjoy a beautiful Saturday on the beach in Santa Cruz!  Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is within walking distance of Seabright Beach if you are interested in that too.

Please bring a food item or beverage to share.  List what you are bringing so others can coordinate.  Since we'll be spending all day on the beach, please consider bringing more substantial food items rather than snacks.

Also, sunscreen and clothing layers are a must.  Feel free to bring games/activities for the beach!

Dogs are permitted on Seabright Beach as long as they are on a leash.

Info about the Beach Boardwalk:

http://www.beachboardwalk.com

If you are interested in carpooling, please meet in front of Sears in the Vallco/Cupertino Square parking lot at 9:30 am. There is some street parking near the beach, but it's limited.  Allow about an hour to get to the beach.

What people are bringing:

Rachel C. - wheat bread, turkey, and peanut butter (and table, croquet/badminton)

Sarah - freshly baked goodies (and beach chairs/table)

Jeff - cold cuts and condiments

Jennifer - sandwiches or corn salad

Patrick Chang - boneless wings

Kari - bananas and clementines

Cindy W - cookies or stuff to make s'mores

Matt Warriner - drinks

Thomas H. - cookies and chocolates (and radio)

      Sorry guys, I waited it out but I'm just too feverish to make the trip. :( I can't believe that I would get sick this weekend after I haven't been sick for over a year.

      If it is anything like last year, we will likely have a group split off in early afternoon to go ride rides and explore the board walk for a bit.

    I'm taking this oppertunity to catch up with a friend this weekend who I haven't seen in 8 months so I can't go to the beach saturday. He was going to join me for dodgeball but couldn't so today was the only day. I am still going to be going to dodgeball so I'll probably see most of you there anyway!

    How late is everyone going to be hanging out?

      As I might have plans until four.

      July 17, 2013

  • Alex T.

    I edited the location because the google map was pointing about a mile east of the beach. Seabright Beach doesn't actually have an address, but your destination should be the southern end of Seabright Ave.

    July 15, 2013

    • Alex T.

      I also apparently don't know how to spell "beach".

      July 15, 2013

    • Thomas

      Hey there this address brings you directly to the main entrance of the beach for those gps users: 1379 East Cliff Drive, Santa Cruz, US...Used it a few weeks ago there..

    Okay! Last year we set up a caravan spot in the Sears parking lot @ Vallco Shopping Mall in Cupertino. It worked well enough then, so I suggest we do so again.

    I will be there at 9:30am and will leave at 10:00am. I can fit five people total in my car, but two spots are spoken for. Further, I don't have a ton of trunk room.

    I would encourage other carpoolers to congregate there throughout the morning so we can organize and handle stragglers.

      Sounds good. I will probably need a ride from the parking lot down to Santa Cruz if there's still room. Shouldn't be bringing much with me besides a backpack of stuff.

      July 17, 2013

    Because of the heavy weekend traffic, Ofer and I are going to be on the road to the beach by 8am so we can come early to help "save the space". For food, we are either going to bring some delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or a lovely corn salad. I might bring a birthday thing too to celebrate my birthday with folks.
