    LOL, Nice and Cool is a relitive term.

    Normally when they say "nice and cool" down here, I'm freezing :oops:

    I have a truck...
    If you're not far away from the beach I could grab it on my way up.

    I think Smudge offered his too.

    Whither or not my shell will be a factor depends entirely on how tall the grill is. Lizard, however you want to do it, pick it up yourself or leave it to me, I'm cool

    I rather doubt I will be there before 2:30 myself.

    I bought a small table top grill today. And some Matchlight type charcoal. But I don't have a table to put it on. I'll have to see if I can find something that will work. This doesn't have a big cooking area, so we will need another grill, but at least there will be one there earlier, I'm going to try to get there around 11-ish.

    I got my pasta salad made today, I always make it a day or two ahead, because I like to allow the flavors of the dressing, onion and roasted red pepper (which I like to roast myself, rather than get it out of a jar) to meld together and permeate the pasta.

    I'm still not sure if I am staying in SD or coming back. If I do come, it will be late afternoon or early evening. What time does the beach close? I won't be able to bring anything except 2 chairs and Renee. Of course I will bring my lightsaber...

    I have updated info on our location from James, via Lizard:

    We are located right behind the bathrooms by tower 11 on the city beach. As you stand facing the pier, we are to the left. We are right near the sidewalk with a blue EZ- up and a yellow umbrella.
    Parking is said to be pretty decent at the moment, though there is no guarantee it will stay that way.

    That is all for now, See Y'all on the beach!

    It was great meeting you folks!! Had a great time and happy to say that I didn't get sunburned. I think several of you got enough burn to make up for those of us that didn't. The lightsabers were great. It's the first time I got to use it in public. What fun! Thanks for letting me share in it all!

    Oh yea, it's official, I've finally posted on the OC board!

    A great event, much fun was had by all! And I somehow managed to avoid a major sunburn!
    The sabers were a blast as always. Huge thanks go out to everyone who made this the success it was!

    It was gteat meeting all of you at the beach. We had a great time. The light sabers were a big hit. The traffic on the westbound 91 stunk a bunch going home, but that is OK. Love to do it again. I didn't get sunburned very much, but youngest daughter did. She felt it was WAY worth it. They both had a blast. I wish I would have brought the right kind of shoes to play with the sabers a bit. Hopefully someday, my husband and myself are going to the light saber training classes. He had a great time. Thanks to everyone who put this together. Looking forward to having another one. Glad to meet everyone. Bye for now.
