Annual West Coast Event (at Big Sur or ?)
Ambrose and I were talking about this and we both thought that September seemed like a better month than October.
thats cool, it'll be getting summer swells . . .
Count me in.
Sept or Oct , I've been saving some vacation time ,had a great time in 2005.
The waiting period for the Boost Mobile Pro is Sept 8-19 at Trestles. I like to go and see the pros rip.
Of course Swaylocks at Big Sur would be a higher priority!!!
I just did a quick search for available dates at Plaskett Creek and the group camps are booked through October - at least on weekends.
On a brighter note, LOTS of midweek dates are open for all three group sites throughout September & October.
Here is a link to reservation site... if it works, you should be able to scroll forward and back to check dates. In the past, we have reserved group sites 2 &3. Site 1 might be included as an option for overflow and parking backup? Parking has been something of an issue at past events. http://www.reserveusa.com/servlet/availabilityOnWeb?action=redirectMatrix&navAction=next&navIndex=dates&navAmount=-7
In any case, please count me in as an attendee offering to help anyway I can.
Another option is Leo Carrillo. They have group sites and a good wave in September. http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=616
Secos looks like it has openings midweek as well. Other than random single days, all weekends are booked through October.
Max capacity = 50 people.
Oct.27/28/99 looks open at Plaskett Groups sites
group site is available for $329 Thurs, 10/26 -Sun 10/29
What about a mid-week event? With some planning, mid week / september would be in the south swell window. Either of the places...Also, much less of a crowd.
coincidence of the plaskett creek meeting of 2003
takes on even more significance.
the weekend popularity
of both these venues,plaskett creek and secos
is apparently under pressure.
the site of a low pressure alternative
could use some divine intervention.
to list the alternatives
would be a wide ranging
speculative adventure .
My mind instantly bounces from
refugio to el cap to channel islands to todos santos
in rapid fire,then I decide to slow down and
it bops to carpenteria and then to paradise cove
then to a weekend at barbara strisands for 70
she does rent out that barn for groups doesn't she?
isn't there a light house on santa cruz island that does weekend getaways?
the vandenburg cabins?
is somebody a 5 star general?
maybe the western white house?
is there a nixon memorial camping facility?
three days at cottons?
the cosmic providence that led the soujourning
Vaquerros de las olas to plaskett
will surely reveal an alternative for sept 2006
or perhaps sussing out the first day res date for sept 2007
should be considered
since the popularity
of the plaskett creek venue is so popular.
as with secos and other spots.
rent the whole ranch
or maybe just bixby
or pull up a 75 apacity yacht to gov's
split the fee 75 ways
$300 apiece=$22,500 goes a long way.
would that singe the rancherios? or what
ho ho HO.Just an impish thought-fantasy
