Memorial Day BBQ, Beach Party, and Bonfire

Note: If you see a number with a + next to my name eg: +5, that is because this meetup is posted across multiple groups and these are the amount of registered guests from the other meetup groups. This helps the "total attendees" number reflect the actual amount of people coming to the meetup.

Let's have an awesome Memorial Day party on the beach!

We'll start the party, early, real early, at 8:00AM. We have the beach, music, and food throughout the day. As the sun starts setting, we'll have a bonfire started, and the party will just continue on. When: May 25th, Sunday

Time: 8AM-12:15AM (Monday)

Where: Sycamore Canyon Beach

There will be food, drinks, and alcohol provided at the event. To help offset the costs we are asking for each person to chip in $10, you can send payment via the link below to the address: [masked]

https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/send-money-online 

You also welcome to bring your own food and drinks with you, surprise the party. 

Bring plenty of sunscreen with you, it'll be quite sunny outside. Games and sporting equipment are encouraged to be brought for the whole group.

Important Notes:

Alcohol - Alcohol is allowed in the park, but no glass containers are allowed to be outside on the beach itself. If you have glass containers, please bring plastic containers for them, or keep them in the cooler, and have cups.

Parking - There are two options for parking, you can park inside the beach area for $12.00. This will allow you to go in and out of the park for the day, however, the lot will close around 10:00 PM. There is street parking on the PCH, but it will be limited during the day. At night, when the lot closes, we can move our cars onto the PCH.

Carpool - Since the park is far away from LA, there will be people that would like to Carpool. I'll have a list of people that would like to carpool, and those wanting a ride.

---

Last of all, lets have a fun and awesome day.

EDIT:  What's going on everyone? Hope everyone's had a good week, and are looking forward to the party on Sunday. Gonna answer a couple of questions that have showed up...


1. For everyone that has been asking, yes, you can pay at the party. Quite a few people have been asking if they can just bring the $10 with them, no problem. 


2. Carpools are also still available, just post here, and anyone that wants to can contact those individuals for details. Jeff and I, the two planners, will be carpooling, but we're going early, and spots are limited. 


3. The spot at the beach is still in the air, since we cannot reserve it, hence why some of us are going early. The main spot that we have selected will be on the east side of the beach, closer to the Lifeguard post. If not, we have an alternative site on the west side. We will put up signs showing where we are.


4. I also put up a simple map showing where everything (mostly) is, including the two party areas (1 alternate).
