4th of July Tailgate Party and Fireworks Shoot

We had such a great time last year at this event, we're planning to do it again! We'll meet as early as possible at the Scotts Valley Sky Park, host a pot luck, tailgate party (complete with b-b-q) and then claim our spot on the lawn. Lots to see/do before the sun goes down. Scotts Valley Parks & Rec put on a humdinger of a pre-show band and activities. You can check it out or hang out on the lawn and sleep off you meal. Once the fireworks begin, you'll be sure to get great shots of the amazing pyrotechnic show. Afterwards as we wait for the crowds to clear out of the parking lot, we'll have ourselves a post-event tailgate party. Details regarding cost and where to meet will come as the date gets closer. No cost for the meet up, but there is an admission to the park. Sign up to participate, but please only sign up if you know you can join us.

    I'll be bringing a small camping table and a cooler with ice and some bottled water. Don't think they will allow beer?
    Also I have some brats for the bbq and some chips to share. probably some other items too like condiments and stuff.

      Thanks Andy... good to know. I think you can have beer, but to be on the safe side, I'd keep it on the low down. Pour into an opaque container.

    Wanna go? A few members have bailed at the last minute. (boo) So now there's a few spots open if you can make it. It IS a potluck and the tailgate party is going to be a blast. I even have a table top ping pong set. If you can make it, contact me ASAP. And don't forget the potluck part. BYOB.

    Sorry for responding so late, but I thought I could make it back in time. I'm stuck in Santa Rosa with crazy relatives. I will see you for the Social Meet in a couple of weeks.

    Hi Everyone. Unfortunately, I have to help a friend with a last minute move and will not be able to attend. I guess that makes room for one more! Have fun!

    Ok folks...It's a big group. We need to do a little planning. So far I have the b-b-q, plates, napkins, cups, forks, etc, covered. I'm bringing chicken teriyaki and watermelon. What else do we have?

    Sadly, I'm beyond exhausted after 4 days spent moving Mom. I won't be able to attend.

      Bummed that you cant make it. I suspect you'll find soothing respite at Malaga III. Hope to see you at the next social.

    I'm about to send all RSVP's members final information on attending this year's show. So anyone signing up in the next couple of days, should be sure to send me an email for the details. See you there!
