    We are just a few hours away from the Bonfire. Farris & I will be their early setting things up. When our location is finalized, an notification will got out on where to find us.

    We've had several people cancel last minute, so as such, we'll need people to bring these things. The items in question are:

    Hot Dogs
    Hamburgers & Buns
    Chips, & Dip
    Cookies
    Ice & Firewood (can't get enough of these)
    Charcoal
    A Cooler (or 2 or 3)

    I would recommend bringing a beach chair and or blanket/towel/quilt to sit on as you are enjoying your day at the beach.

    Also, most natives know this, but some of you who haven't been here as long may not... It is HIGHLY recommended that you bring a sweatshirt/jacket/sweater b/c the later it gets, the chillier it will be. If the Temps were in the 80s or 90s, you probably wouldn't need it, but it's supposed to be 72, with a low of 61. We intend to be out until 10p, so keep that in mind.

    Hope we have a great turnout, and I'll see you all on Saturday!!!

    2 · June 13, 2014
