NOTE: Because of the storm, I am changing the time of this event to 4 p.m. instead of 3 p.m.
Summer is almost over, so let's enjoy it while we can! The first weekend of September, we'll be having a BBQ and games at Woodbine Beach. TNT member Martin is generously bringing his charcoal to enjoy some outdoor food.
If you've never been to a beach in Toronto or swam in one, this event is for you!
Here's what we'll have in store:
-Settlers of Catan board game
(NOTE: I'll see if we are able to get a volleyball net for us to play. I'll checkout the details and the availability of volleyball courts at Woodbine Beach.
We'll be setting up the BBQ near the Woodbine Beach bathhouse. Here's a photo of how it looks like:
How to get to Woodbine Beach
From Woodbine subway station, take the 92 Woodbine South bus and get off at Lake Shore Boulevard (one stop after Queen Street East). When you get off, walk south towards the beach and grassy area and you'll see the Bathhouse.
Drive on the Gardiner Expressway until it ends and merges with Lake Shore Boulevard East. Drive all the way east until it becomes Woodbine Avenue and you'll be in the vicinity of the beach. Paid parking is fairly easy to find, but free on-street parking is more difficult.
Where to Meet
We will meet directly beside the Woodbine Beach Bathhouse (the building with the green rooftop where people change into swimwear). I'll be holding a Meetup sign to identify our group. We'll be meeting there at 3 p.m. After 15 minutes, we'll be setting up our picnic area and BBQ around the Bath House.
If you are arriving later, the best thing to do is to call my cell phone at [masked] and you can ask me where we are. But generally, we'll be near the Woodbine Beach Bathhouse.
Pricing & Cost
There will be a $5 fee for anyone attending this event, to pay for the cost of buying foods and drinks. However, if you bring any food or drink that's NOT chips or cookies, then the fee will be waived for you!
