Beach Trip to Ocean City

Now that summer is here again, it's time for another trip to THE BEACH! Ocean City, Maryland is on the Atlantic coast, about 3 hours' drive from DC. We'll meet at the Kiss & Ride parking area on the eastern side of Grosvenor Metro station. This station is on the Rockville Pike/Wisconsin Ave/Route 355 just north of the Beltway. Note that there is no north exit on to Route 355 if you're coming from Virginia. The number of spaces available for this event will depend on the number of available drivers. When responding, please indicate whether you're willing to drive, and how many people you can take. If you're a passenger, please be prepared to contribute some money for gas. In the unlikely event that we don't have enough spaces on the day, preference will be given to those who were earliest to sign up. If all spots are taken, please sign up on the waiting list. Your RSVP will be changed to Yes if we have more volunteers to drive. BRING - Beach towel, swimming costume, hat, sunscreen, beach chair, umbrella, volleyball (if you have them). Or, you can just bring yourself ;-) Note that this is a day trip only - we'll return the same evening. This event may be postponed or cancelled in the event of rain. Attendance is at your own risk. The group and its members will not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages or injuries arising from participation in this event.

    Thank you to everyone who came along, and particularly to the drivers and whoever brought the umbrellas and volleyball.

    Philip, could you please message/post your number so to contact the group at the ocean city just in case we miss you guys at the metro here. I don't know anybody in this group. This is my first event with this group.

    I can give a ride to people from fairfax/vienna or near by places. I live in fairfax.

    Since a lot of people have already signed up, this event will stay as is. This should allow plenty of time for everyone not driving to get to Grosvenor on the Metro.

    We may organize a future trip to Rehoboth.

    While First St in Ocean City is always crowded, further north it generally isn't so bad.

    If you wish to make your own way out there earlier and meet us there, you're welcome to do that. Please let me know if this is the case.

    Agree with Eric.

    Have an idea. How about going to the Rehoboth beach in Delaware instead? It's a very nice place and it will save at least 3 hours of the commuting time. Just a thought.

    The posted meeting time will stay as is. Leaving at 8:30 - 9:00 worked out ok last year.

    If any members wish to make private arrangements to leave earlier and meet us in Ocean City, please let me know.

    We'll be meeting at Grosvenor Metro station and carpooling to Ocean City. The number of spaces for this meetup is based on the number of people who have volunteered to drive.
