RSVPs are OPEN to about 80! Meetup sometimes doesn't show "# spots left" anymore.
Come Celebrate Mid-Summer with another FREE Multi-groups Potluck BONFIRE! Bring some firewood if you can!
Another very popular FREE MBay DeAnza Cove Social Picnic Potluck BONFIRE! Celebrate with some explorer/hiker buddies, SD 40+ "Friends", Active SD40+ Boomers, and also members from six other very active social Meetup groups!
Grab your beach chairs, nice potluck dish and utensil for it, BYOB cold sodas in a cooler, jacket, flashlight/lantern and some dry firewood appreciated if you can!
Main courses or big entrees are best for this potluck group, bring something that YOU would like to eat, so then you know it will be there.
Please specify what you are bringing in your rsvp, or update it in your comments here. Too many chips last time.
If you need ideas, plan something YOU like or stop by Costco and pickup a party tray or their spiral turkey sandwiches, chicken tenders, etc. Or bring large fresh pizzas!
BYOB cold sodas or water bottles in a cooler with ice!
Dress appropriate for evening weather. Have jacket in your car just in case! Please bring some dry firewood if you can!
No alcohol (or glass) is officially allowed on City beaches, they might sometime come around and check. They DID in June!
Plan your pre-cooked dish unless you also bring a small BBQ for it, or someone offers to bring a BBQ which would then be posted here in comments if so. Take a look at comments to see if anyone is bringing a BBQ. There is a permanent small iron pedestal BBQ nearby with iron grill that needs cleaning before use. Come early if you want to check it out and bring the charcoal, lighter fluid and grill brush.
Potluck is about 5:30pm but come as early as you want for best parking, maybe help setup or hold the fire ring or walk a few miles along beautiful Mission Bay while there. Anyone have group games like bocce ball or bolos? Volleyball set?
Anyone have a boombox or music ipod with amp? Bring it in your car and we may enjoy your tunes. Anyone play piano? We may have a surprise for you down there if you have music sheets or can play from memory.
I will go very early and likely get the furthest West double picnic tables and closest fire ring. ( The Sun sets in the West, for non-scouts ) Walk the sidewalk to the NorthWest end and then look for us at the double picnic tables and near fire ring.
Notice: the powerful lawn sprinklers may possibly come on after 9pm and soak the grass and picnic tables area, so let's put leftover food and dishes/utensils/bags away in cars well before then and move everyone's chairs over to the sand close around the fire-ring after dark before 9pm!
The sprinklers mostly did NOT come on for the last 7 months, no guarantees for this month with the drought and all. They came on briefly about 10pm in January, a few people got lightly sprinkled!
Hanging around the picnic tables/grassy area after 9pm could possibly get you a bit wet! Only fun if it has been a very hot day!
Coming North on H-5 take Clairemont Dr offramp and turn West, crossing 5 and then turn right onto E Mission Bay Dr. Go to De Anza Rd.
Coming South on H-5 you may take Balboa/MBayDr offramp( or if very heavy traffic at Balboa ramp just continue South on 5 to Clairemont Dr ), proceed straight on Mission Bay Dr thru six stoplights before taking sharp right turn from right lane just before entering 5 South again, West into N Mission Bay Dr, turn right at stopsign and go North to De Anza Rd.
IF you miss that sharp right turn and end up on H-5 South, you can still take the next offramp Clairemont Dr and get on E Mission Bay Dr going North along there to De Anza Rd.
