Fort Point Crabbing Lesson + Picnic

Members of the National Park Service will teach us about crabbing and then we will have plenty of time to try it ourselves.

These free crabbing events generally fill up the day they become available, but I was fortunate enough not only to get past the seemingly endless busy signals, but also to secure six spots for our group!

Schedule
9:45am: Meet at the Warming Hut Cafe
10am: Crabbing class begins
12pm: Crabbing class ends
12:30pm: Picnic potluck

Because this is a small and special event, I removed the +1 RSVP option and am charging $10/person to discourage no shows -- I will use the payments to provide tableware and drinks for the picnic. This is a fairly rare opportunity so, if you can't make it, please change your RSVP to "No" at least 72 hours prior so someone else can take your place.

Items to bring: layered clothing, hat, sunglasses, sunblock, small bucket, picnic blanket, picnic lunch items for yourself + one to share (large enough for 6 people), serving utensils (if needed)

** Please post what potluck item you are bringing in the comments **

Official event description
Join the staff for an inside look into the techniques of pier crabbing. You will be loaned the equipment needed to put your newly learned skills to the test. Program includes information on types of crabs that are legally taken and other regulations.

----- 
Please be considerate of your fellow members and the host managing the event and/or reservation: If you RSVP "Yes" but are unable to attend, change your RSVP to "No" before the stated RSVP closing date. If you don't, you will be marked as a no show. Members are allowed two no shows: after that, you will be wait listed for future events or dropped from the group.

    Hi. I just got a notification that there's an open spot? If correct, I would love to join this event.

    June 3, 2014

    • Renee

      Someone else already grabbed the spot. If another space comes available, the Meetup system will notify you again and prompt you through the RSVP process. Whether it's this event or another, I hope to meet you soon, Rosa!

  • Wendy

    Can I bring a friend? Was not able to pay for 2.

    May 17, 2014

    • Renee

      Hi, Wendy! Due to the small group size limitations placed by Fort Point and to ensure as many different attendees as possible could join, I did not allow +1s.

      May 17, 2014

  • Wendy

    I will think of something to bring later - probably a salad
