Due to SD County & City guidelines, BONFIRE postponed to JULY 24th! Stay safe, Social Distance and wear masks for the next month or two. TGIF with Full Moon Bonfire Potluck PICNIC with STILL FREE twenty Multi-groups! Please bring some dry firewood if you possibly can! Bring your BEACH CHAIRS in your car! Got hot cider or chocolate? Smores? ***This event is cross-posted, so there will be plenty of new MeetUp friends there to say hello to!*** Quite a mixed bunch are coming. Very lively social crowd there each time! Eight guitar players came in April. Dress for nice day and very cool evening! BRING BEACH CHAIRS! Dry FIREWOOD! Cases of water and sodas? Grab your beach chairs, nice potluck food & utensil for it, some sodas, have warm jacket in your car, flashlight/lantern and some dry firewood much appreciated! Main courses or big entrees are best for this big potluck group, bring something that YOU would like to eat, so then you know it will be there. Pre-cooked food, unless you also bring a BBQ and fuel to cook your food. Please specify what you are bringing in your rsvp, you can also update it in comments here closer to the event. If you need ideas, plan something YOU like or stop by Costco and pickup a party tray or their spiral turkey sandwiches, chicken tenders, etc. Or bring large fresh pizzas! Or cases of sodas or water! Please bring some dry firewood if you possibly can! Not pallets, unless they are cut up. NO ALCOHOL (or glass) is allowed there, by City of SD ordinance. They might come around and check. They DID drive by on the beach once last year! Checking for alcohol! Please don't bring any to my events there! NO ALCOHOL! Potluck starts about 4pm but come early or whenever you can, maybe play some games or walk a few miles along beautiful Mission Bay while there. Anyone have musical instruments to play? Sometimes people bring guitars for some singalong by the bonfire. I will go very early and most likely get the furthest West double picnic tables and closest fire ring. ( The Sun sets in the West, for non-scouts ) Walk the sidewalk to the North-West end and then look for us at the double picnic tables and fire ring nearby. Notice: the powerful lawn sprinklers may possibly come on after 9pm and soak the grass and picnic tables area, so let's put leftover food and dishes/utensils/bags away in cars well before then and move everyone's chairs over to the sand close around the fire-ring after dark before 9pm! The sprinklers mostly did NOT get us for the last year, no guarantees for this month. They came on briefly about 10pm two years ago, a few people got lightly sprinkled! Hanging around the picnic tables/grassy area after 9pm could possibly get you a bit wet! Only fun if it has been a warm day! Coming North on H-5 take Clairemont Dr offramp and turn West, crossing 5 and then turn right onto E Mission Bay Dr. Go to De Anza Rd. Coming South on H-5 you may take Balboa/MBayDr offramp( or if very heavy traffic at Balboa ramp just continue South on 5 to Clairemont Dr ), proceed straight on Mission Bay Dr thru six stoplights before taking sharp right turn from right lane just before entering 5 South again, West into N Mission Bay Dr, turn right at stopsign and go North to De Anza Rd. IF you miss that sharp right turn and end up on H-5 South, you can still take the next offramp Clairemont Dr and get on E Mission Bay Dr going North along there to De Anza Rd. A red STAR mylar balloon hung on our orange umbrella top, or find us later by the West-most fire ring on the sand. After dark 3 lanterns on our table. Please bring some dry firewood, thank you!
