It was fun last year, let's hope the weather is great for us & let's plan this again!
This will also be posted in another group that Paul & I are organizers of. We are posting in the Mingling in Delta group too.
Let's meet at Centennial Beach for the afternoon/early evening. For the ease of finding each other, lets meet by the newly redone/renovated Cafe
- then we can progress to find a nice spot to accommodate us (hopefully by a bonfire we can use).
There is free parking here. There is an abundance of things to do, we can play bocce ball or croquet, we can even bring some boardgames and card games. Last time we flew kites, played badminton & frisbee, built sandcastles, enjoyed the fire etc. We roasted fruit, smokies, marshmellows.
Make sure to bring your walking shoes as their are trails and we can even go on a geocache hike if anyone is interested. We found one geocache last time, for those geocachers out there, we can show you that one as well - we can go get the other two or so that are in this park.
If you have a kite or frisbee, bring it along too! Don't forget your cameras! You can bring your kids, family and friends too! (dogs permitted in some parts of the park but not in the immediate beach area)
There are picnic tables there in some areas, and we can bring some portable camp stoves & BBQs if anyone has any. Make sure to bring stuff for yourselves to eat and drink - we can organize a potluck for somethings such as fruit or salads or snacks as well but what we found in the past, perhaps bringing your own might be better as some people don't show or whatever. Some of us will be bringing extra things to share. You might want to bring your own folding or portable chair.
Last time we had hamburgers & hotdogs & smokies - we also roasted marshmellows & smokies, smores as well as fruit. Roasted marshmellows & bananas were amazing, and there was pineapples there too! Yummy!
At the end of the night we had some hot chocolate by the fire till the rain chased us away!
We will cap off the evening by having a big bonfire - hopefully we will be able to grab one before anyone else so we can use it. And hopefully we will be able to get enough wood ahead of time!
Nothing is better then a summer night with friends having roasted marshmallows and wieners sitting telling stories around a bonfire!
***This of course would all be weather permitting. In the chance that the weather is horrible, stormy & rainy that day this event will be cancelled or postponed.
If people require rides, we can work out something for carpooling so that those that don't have vehicles won't be left out - we can bring you - just make sure to please give us plenty of notice :D
If anyone is able to bring some wood for the fire, that would be very helpful!!
Also, please let us know if you are able to bring a tent, canopy or even some portable tables & chairs, that would be so awesome!
Looking forward to another great time!
