Walk Is On !!!!!

Bad Weather: Walk May Be Cancelled:  Dance is Still ON!!!

     The weather is looking kind of grim today! The walk will be cancelled in the event of rain or the threat of lightning.  If we do not have the walk, we will still meet at Columns, starting at 8:00 p.m.

     There is no cover charge at Columns before 8:30. After 8:30, the cover is $6.00.  

    If the walk is going to be cancelled, I will post here by 5:00 p.m. and will also e-mail the group. 

 

(This is a joint event with Monmouth Rocks 2)

Bob H. (Kayak Bob), our group's co-organizer is retiring! Yes, he's young, but he's leaving his lifelong job at the end of June to pursue a life of leisure! So we're going to ease him into his new life phase in style!

We will meet for a sunset walk on the boardwalk in Avon across from The Columns, at 7:00 p.m. (near where the Avon Pavillion used to be). When we return from the walk, we'll head for Columns for a night of cocktails and dancing. The band is Generation Next, and they are supposed to be great! The band starts at 9:30 p.m.

Everyone is invited to either walk or meet us at Columns, or preferably both!!

Bob H. is a co-organizer of Monmouth Rocks 2, and so Cathy B's group Monmouth Rocks 2 will also be hosting this event.

At Columns, we will be gathering in the back toward the bar on the left (as you're facing Columns), by the area where the band plays. We may even have some surprises for Bob!!!

So please join us for some great exercise, fun with your friends, and to help Bob transition to his new life of leisure. :-)

    Not sure about the walk... Will depend not only on weather, but also timing - too much going on in my head. But I'll definitely be at The Columns!

    June 29, 2013

  • mindy f.

    i will be there. I am new to the group. Who should I ask for when I get there. thank you

    June 29, 2013

    • Barbara U.

      Welcome to the group, Mindy! Leslie answered you properly. The group of crazy people is often the give-away. Or you could do what I did/do. Just walk around looking lost chirping "Meetup?" to everyone, and finally someone will say YES! :)

      If you review the photos of those Leslie spoke of and the rest before you go, that might help, too.

  • Leslie

    Go to the back room by the band stage and look at the bar to the left. Look for me or ask for Leslie or Bob. Or, look for Carhi B who is the organizer of Monmouth Ricks 2. Her group will be there too.

  • mindy f.

    I'd like to be there. Is there any cost to join the walk. How do most of the people that are walking dress. How many other people are you expecting
    thank you

    June 17, 2013

    • Leslie

      There's no cost for the walk. People dress comfortably, some folks bring a change of shoes if they're planning to go to Columns afterward. So far about 23 people are signed up. Hope you can make it!

      June 17, 2013

    • mindy f.
