Boardwalk Days at Winnipeg Beach - Day Trip

I decided to try something a little different for this meet up and see how things go.

Boardwalk Days at Winnipeg Beach – Day Trip

Saturday, July 27, 2013

We shall meet at the Tim Horton’s on 2360 McPhillips just past Garden City Shopping Center going North and then go as a group together.

  • 10am departure time
  • Picnic, Swim?, Look around, Badminton?, Chit Chat, Relax.. whatever...
  • Pack up and leave the beach by 7pm.
  • Return and Drop people off at the Tim Horton’s for 8pm.

Carpool spots are limited - *$6 charge to those that require a ride, payable before we leave.

***Amount of carpool spots available depends on how many want to drive others out to the meet up.

Those that can drive members there & back let me know.

List of things to bring:

Food item for a picnic

Towel / Blanket

Portable chair?

Beach wear - depends on weather

There is public restrooms, stores, vendors and a small midway.

It is a family beach and should be relaxing.

*Note: The $6 carpooling charge is so no one is taken for granted.

It encourages people to drive others and share the cost for gas with who they drive, and is a real deal for others to be able to get out and have a day at the beach, when they wouldn't be able to otherwise.

    Thank you Stacey for organizing this event at the beach. I had a great time. Good food and great company. Thank you all for a great day.

  • ARLENE

    Thanks Stacey for another wonderful time with great people, great food , great weather, great location, at the Beach. It always amazes me how such diversity in people can make for such interesting conversation. Corydon was great as we got a great spot sitting (and having a drink) right on the corner of the street where the music, dancing and fun was going on. It was a great ending to such a fun day. Thanks also to all who made day.

    July 28, 2013

  • CHLOE and L.

    Another fantastic day, great food and BBQ, fun leading the parade, thanks to Dave and his convertible, got lots of waves back as we passed by all the people, waving at them, fun on Corydon, music was super as was the company I was with! Thanks again, Stacey, for organizing such a terrific day!

    July 28, 2013

    • Stacey

      Linda, when you went to Corydon, did you go sit on a patio somewhere?

      July 28, 2013

    • Stacey

      I am thinking of checking out Corydon next Friday. Sounds fun and I like FREE. lol

    I really enjoyed our beach day. Great company, fantastic food and the counseling session was fun. Hey Linda, I tried the spiked coleslaw when I got home, it was quite tasty!Thanks again Stacey for everything you do.

    July 28, 2013

  • KASSEDY & I.

    What incredible day! Food, awesome people, and good again, weather and the great setting. Let's do it again!

    July 27, 2013

  • Shirley

    It was a wonderful day. I enjoyed the company, food, and it was great to be out in the fresh air.
    I have never been to Winnipeg Beach so the walk down the boardwalk in around the town was really enjoyable. The counselling group went really well too LOL Stacey and I went to Gimli and it was really nice and warm there. We walked down the wharf and sat by the water for awhile. It was nice and relaxing. We walked around town for while as well. Gimli has changed a lot since I was last there.

    July 27, 2013

  • Stacey

    I had a great day. I got home at 8:30pm. It was a bit windy but with the sunshine, great company and food, it was all good. I went to Gimli afterward and there was very little wind and warm. We walked out on the pier. Just beautiful. Shirley took a photo. Hopefully she can post it. So in short a lovely relaxing day for me. Very enjoyable.

    July 27, 2013

  • KASSEDY & I.

    We were the last car in from the north side. Yeah!

    July 27, 2013

  • Stacey

    Isabel, were you bringing something for the picnic?

    July 26, 2013

    • KASSEDY & I.

      I'm bringing cucumber salad and some lemonade.

      July 27, 2013

    • Stacey

      Sounds good.

      July 27, 2013

  • Stacey

    Shirley from St Vital, Michelle, Cristina, Crystal, and Isabel, any idea what you will bring to the picnic?

    July 25, 2013

    • Stacey

      Why don't you bring something to drink?

      July 26, 2013

    • Stacey

      If you already have the cookies that is fine.

      July 27, 2013

  • Shirley

    I picked up bottled water today so I will bring some out tomorrow.

    July 26, 2013

  • Stacey

    A few have cancelled out, so Linda, no one is listed as riding with you at the moment but we can figure this out tomorrow morning before we leave. I am too tired right now to keep readjusting things. I have been up since 4am for work. See you tomorrow morning.

    July 26, 2013

  • Stacey

    I am looking forward to tomorrow. I feel like I can relax at Winnipeg Beach. Should be a good time especially if the weather holds out. I am told 24 degrees for tomorrow? I hope that is true.

    July 26, 2013

  • Cristina

    Hi Stacy, I'm feeling really sick so I need to give up my spot. Sorry for the short notice.

    July 26, 2013

    • Stacey

      Feel better.

      July 26, 2013

  • Simran N.

    I would've loved to come but I need to be back in the city by 5pm! :(

    July 25, 2013

  • Shirley

    Oh darn, something has come up and I can't attend after all. I hope that Dave will know this. By the way, I am Shirley "from Osborne Village" I did used to live in St.Vital when I first joined. Have a great time everyone.

    July 25, 2013

  • CHLOE and L.

    Do you need hotdog toppings??? onions, lettuce, mustard, etc.??? or else what do we still need?? chips?? Let me know, Stacey

    July 24, 2013

    • Stacey

      Sure, sounds good.

      July 24, 2013

    • Stacey

      If you want to bring chips, don't bring too much. Maybe one or two bags tops.

      July 25, 2013

  • Stacey

    Can anyone bring drinks, such as water, pop, or juice?

    July 25, 2013

  • Dave

    I'll bring Potato salad or was that potatoe salad?

    July 24, 2013

    • Stacey

      Sounds great Dave. I don't think anyone else said they would bring that.

      July 24, 2013

    • Stacey

      Oh I did a long while ago, but I am thinking it is best if I get things that we will need but don't have.

      July 23, 2013

    I just re-read the original post. It reads, under List of Things to Bring: Food item for a picnic. Is that to say that this is going to be a potluck style picnic? If so, very cool, and would it be helpful to know what others are bringing? should someone bring plates, utensils, etc, or should we all bring our own? I could be mistaken or have missed something. I think a potluck style picnic would be very cool! Thanks!

    July 14, 2013

    • Arny H

      I'll bring a pack of hotdogs.

      July 14, 2013

    • Arny H

      And bunns

      July 14, 2013

  • Stacey

    Please let me know if you require carpooling. I am organizing who is with who. I am sure there were more that wanted rides, but I don't know who they are at this moment.

    July 13, 2013

    • Stacey

      Is anyone else needing a ride, or driving and can take someone???

      July 14, 2013

    • Arny H

      Thanks Stacey. See you at Tim Horton's.

      July 14, 2013

    I can drive if needed, but in either case, I would like to carpool. Please let me know. I can only seat three passengers though (I drive a 2 door golf).

    July 14, 2013

    • Stacey

      One of the ladies said she could originally take 4 people, but she now has a broken seat belt buckle and I am waiting to see if she can take 3 or 4. If she can still take 4 you can ride with Linda, otherwise I have run out of carpool spots for people.

      July 14, 2013

    • A former member
      A former member

      Either way, i will have my car at Tim Hortons.

      July 14, 2013

  • Stacey

    I still need to hear from Karen J, Carol, Rose and Isabel.

    July 14, 2013

    • Stacey

      oh, and Cheryl..

      July 14, 2013

  • Karin

    Hi Stacey. I'll be driving and I can take up to 3 people if anyone needs a ride.

    July 14, 2013

    • Stacey

      2 carpool spots left and 14 out 20 people accounted for, so far.

      July 14, 2013

    • Stacey

      Looks like we will need at least one more car to take people out there.

      July 14, 2013

  • Stacey

    Hi Everyone,

    I am trying to organize the carpooling. So far there are 3 cars going, and all spots in them filled.

    I still do not know how Karen Jervis, Cheryl, Isabel and her guest, Rose, Karin Nelson, and Carol are getting there. Do any of you plan to drive, and if so can you take someone???

    This is most important because otherwise it is not clear how you ladies are getting there. I don't want any surprises on the morning we are to head out there.

    July 14, 2013

  • Michelle

    Winnipeg beach is supposed to have a bad case of the itch. Will that hinder our meetup at all?

    July 13, 2013

    • Ro

      Readings were high on July 9 but lower on July 11, I think keeping an eye on things would be an idea, or else there will be a beach day without swimming!!

      July 13, 2013

    • Stacey

      No, not for me. I don't have any intentions of swimming in the lake. I am going because I like that beach and for the BBQ. Boardwalk days should have a band or music playing, a small midway. But really, I just like the idea of relaxing and socializing. I have always wanted to go in a group and have a picnic. I always get ice cream there before I leave as well. Call it a tradition. My family had a cottage there and I kind of miss staying there in the summer. It will be nice to get away for the day though.

      July 14, 2013

  • Cristina

    Hi Stacey I would like a ride too please

    July 13, 2013

  • Allison

    Hi Stacey, I would like a ride. I will gladly pay for gas money. I appreciate the help. Thanks

    July 13, 2013

  • CHLOE and L.

    I can take 4 people

    July 5, 2013

    • Stacey

      We were to meet at Tim Horton's on McPhillips and go together. Now some want to take their own car and that is fine. There is a $6 car pooling fee, but many have mixed emotions of it. The $6 was to be paid to the driver of the car you go in to keep things fair. Since is the first outing outside of Winnipeg, not sure how this will go, but that is the guide.

      July 10, 2013

    • Stacey

      Some are making alternate arrangements, but eventually we will all meet up at the Tim Horton's on McPhillips and go together.

      July 10, 2013

  • Sandra M.

    sorry Fringe is on

    July 7, 2013

  • Shirley

    I'd love to come if anyone could pick me up on their way to Tim's from Osborne Village. Thanks.

    July 3, 2013

    • Stacey

      Shirley, Dave just told me this evening he could pick you up in Osborne Village, although he only has room for one passenger in his convertible. But if you like that is offered.

      July 4, 2013

    • Shirley

      Thanks for this. I'd appreciate a ride from Dave.

      July 5, 2013

  • Shirley

    See Message about a ride.

    July 3, 2013

  • CHLOE and L.

    Do they allow small pets?

    June 8, 2013

    • Stacey

      You can bring your little dog, Linda.

      June 9, 2013

  • Dave

    ROAD TRIP!!!!!! I'm in Convertible is ready, or will be, now i need to find a surf board...." let's go surfing"

    June 7, 2013

    • Stacey
