PLEASE, when you post your profile picture, make sure that your primary picture clearly shows your face. The reason for this, is so that when an event organizer or a fellow group member is looking for other Meetup attendee's at an event, they can find you in a crowd.

*As a Meetup Group, we are charged a fee by Meetup. Different from other local Meetup Groups that charge $10.00 - $20.00 a year, we do NOT charge a fee. Any money that you decide to contribute is totally voluntary & completely goes directly towards help to offset the fees that Meetup charges us. So PLEASE look for the "CHIP IN" icon on the left hand side of the groups home page and press the icon to make a contribution. The amount that you contribute, is not made public & is appreciated.

ANY extra "Membership" funds collected from members, goes towards a "thank you" happy hour for active members at the end of August!

We have zero tolerance for discrimination, harassment, bullying etc.!

Think summer, the shore and having breakfast on our deck overlooking the ocean. AUGUST 31 - SEPTEMBER 7, 2019, in Sea Isle, NJ. (Labor Day week) Come join us for the week at our group's spectacular BEACHFRONT house overlooking the ocean for some fun, socializing, game playing and relaxation. (The above picture is from one of the decks of last years house) There will be plenty of time to socialize, party, relax, warship the sun or go out. In the past we have enjoyed, the beach right outside our house's door, dinner parties on the deck, game nights, BBQ's, fishing and other beach town afternoon excursions, dancing, happy hours, going out to dinner after starting the day watching the sunrise coming up over the ocean right from our deck. The price is per person for the entire week and includes; sleeping accommodations and bottled water. As far as meals, you would be on your own. In the past we did have a couple of nights over the week where we had a dinner party/barbecue and everyone chipped in. On Sunday September 1st, we are going have a big ONE DAY BBQ party. This is included with your weeks stay. There are going to be other members of Meetup joining us so it's going to be an awesome time. COST for the week is: We only have ..... One (1) Sofa bed left, $385.00. Special: If you have a friend that's already joining us at the house and you share a semi private room with them, there is a $25.00 discount for each of you off the $500.00 price. Since there are 3 other Meetup Groups involved with the beachfront house ..... space is very limited, so first deposits in, first spots reserved. Payment can be given to me at an event or mailed to: 301 Moore Avenue, New Castle, DE 19720. Checks should be made out to: Phil Gross. The beach house is oceanfront in Sea Isle City, NJ 08243. In Aug., the address will be sent to the paid attendee's! Would you be interested in joining us for just a few nights, let me know what nights you'd be interested in and if there are any available spots open up, I'll let you know. I hope that you can join us for this awesome and relaxing week at our groups ocean front beach house. I have successfully run a week at the beach for over 20 years. If you should have any questions after viewing the information, please don't hesitate to email me at: [masked] OR text me at:[masked]. Thanks, Phil Just a reminder, our house IS a beachfront house and NOT beach block! ******* Upcoming events ******* Tuesday, 8/27/19, Game-night Happy Hour Social @ Porto-Fino's!
