    Ok everyone. We will be finalizing the location this weekend. However I need an accurate headcount for this event as we need to do some shopping.

    So please post if you will be attending and also how many friends or family members will be coming along with you.

    Ok everyone the location for the beach party has been finalized.

    Location:

    Huntington Beach (City Side) Beach Blvd entrance. Once you turn into the Beach Blvd entrance go to the right side of the beach. This is the city side of the beach; the cost for parking is $7.00 all day. Once you enter the city beach area you don?t have to go to far to find the tower location. We will be in the area of Tower 15. The party area will be located back near the fire pits. For landmarks to make sure you are in the right spot look for the following things; OCSWS Banner, The Beach Hut (snack stand) and bathrooms that are next door and the volleyball nets which are close by.

    Time: 10:45 or 11:00 am until the beach closes

    Date: Saturday June 7th.

    Directions:

    From San Diego:

    Take the I-5 Northbound to the 55 FWY South towards Newport Beach, eventually this freeway will end just continue on after it ends until you come to Pacific Coast Hwy. Once you get to PCH make a right turn and heads towards Huntington Beach. At Beach Blvd make a left turn into the beach entrances. Once you?ve made the left go to the City Beach entrance, which is on the right side.

    From the Inland Areas:

    Take the 91 FWY westbound and merge onto the 55 FWY continue on this and eventually this freeway will end just continue on after it ends until you come to Pacific Coast Hwy. Once you get to PCH make a right turn and heads towards Huntington Beach. At Beach Blvd make a left turn into the beach entrances. Once you?ve made the left go to the City Beach entrance, which is on the right side.

    From LA and Ventura County:

    I hate to say this, but I am not familiar enough with your areas to include good directions.
    Just load the following intersection into mapquest and you should be fine.

    Beach Blvd and Pacific Coast Highway
    Huntington Beach


    Details:

    We will be bringing the fixings for Dinner, which will include hamburgers, hotdogs, picnic salads and some sodas. We will also be having Subway way sandwiches provided for lunch. We request that members from other Fanforces help us out by bringing additional refreshments such as some sodas as well as some chips and dips. If you have any questions please post them here. Also in case anyone gets lost you can contact the OCSWS by pager and someone will call you back to make sure you are able to find it. The pager number is 714-268-9626.

    Hi! I hope as many of you as possible can make it this day! Remember you are more than welcome to bring a friend or family member. Everyone is welcome :) Here's a few more thoughts on the directions I'd like to add:

    I am not really sure what freeway you guys exactly will be coming from, but you have a few options.
    1) exiting on the 405 S (BEACH BLVD exit, and head south all the way to the beach (about 15 mins or so)
    2) exiting off the 5 or 405 to the 55 S and taking the 55 S to PCH or the Victoria exit (last exit before freeway ends).


    I would go with the 405 S Beach exit personally, it's really easy, and you have very little chance of getting lost as long as you take the correct exit. The beach exit off the 405 is right after the goldenwest exit, and after the 22 freeway. When you take the exit, it doesn't put you straight on beach. you'll want to get into the left hand lane, and turn left, and then get into the righthand lane, and that will put you on beach. then just head down beach (a relatively straight, 4 lane highway or some such thing). Just head straaaaaaight down to PCH, where you will go straight though the light and park by the beach in the lots there. :D
    Any questions, please PM me!

    Thanks, d27!

    Mr. GB and I will try to make it, but it's a little bit up in the air for us. That's the weekend before the last week of the regular school year, and we both will need to see where we are with grading, prepping, etc., before we can decide.

    Zaranne--I've PM'd the CR for OCSWS, and he's going to find out about the dogs-at-beach issue.

    :~)

    Thanks, GB! Regardless of whether I can bring the pup(s) or not, I will still be more than likely to go!

    OK I have checked the detail about pets at the beach. Unfortunately they are not allowed in the area we are going to be at.

    We look forward to having you all come down and join us. please take my pager number posted earlier in case you get lost on the way. Someone will call you back to ensure you find us.

    Also one last reminder to please help us out by bringing some chips and sodas. Thank you.

    Thanks, SRB.

    I still don't know if we're going to make it or not....it will probably be a last-minute decision on my part.

    It's still up in the air for me. :)

    There's a Beach Bash in Hermosa Beach (where my dad works), so I may be there, or I may be home if my mom doesn't get over her cold.

    Or, I could just be in jail.
