This will be a potluck of sorts, but without grilling, since there aren't any grills down by the beach. If someone has a portable grill, that's fine as long as it has its own power source. The concession stand will NOT be open. Please bring fun, easy finger food! Bring blankets, neat sheets, chairs, canopies, whatever you feel like! This is just to get together, have a good time, eat fun food, be outside and watch people launch their boats made of all post-consumer materials. I would suggest bringing your own service items, paper towels, etc. as well, as this is basically a free-for-all.
Remember your sunscreen, bug spray and drinks to share! We'll hopefully supply a cooler with ice, but if someone has one of those awesome drink tubs, that would be fantastic - we could pile on the ice and the cans and bottled water (and we will recycle everything!) :-)
Since the whole point of the Lake Erie Boat Float is to promote recycling and educate the public on conservation, let's try to do our part and recycle what we can, and take care of our trash responsibly :)
Here is a map of where the launch will take place: http://www.cmnh.org/site/Files/Sustainability/BoatFloatMap2013.pdf
PLEASE NOTE: Have a secure place for your valuables, or take them with you - we may have to walk to view the launch, people may want to hike along the beach, etc. :) Hopefuly it'll be a great day for doing whatever!
