BAPA Winter Holiday Party - December 1, 2012 at 7pm

Members,

On Saturday, December 1st at 7pm we'll be having the annual BAPA Winter Holiday party.  It is a great way for you to meet up with all your paragliding friends during the non-flying winter.

BAPA will provide some food and drink while members are asked to contribute side dishes.   So please bring the snack, meal, sweet or fluid that strikes your fancy.  Also, please send me an email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) to tell me you are coming, so we have a rough idea of the number of people attending.

This year we are having it at RJ Mical's house in Redwood City - so it should be reasonably centered in the Bay Area.

Party Details:

Date:         Saturday, December 1st, 2012

Time:         7:00pm

Location:    RJ Mical's House

                 25 Geri Place 

                 Redwood City, CA  94062

 

See you all there, and don't forget to email me to tell me you are coming!

Big Sur Monster Mash Fly-in, Oct 27-28th, 2012

Members,

BAPA invites you and your friends/family to attend the 2012 Monster Mash, on October 27-28, 2012 at Big Sur.

This will be a family-friendly event; non-flying partners and kids are welcome.  BAPA has reserved several individual campsites at Plaskett Creek for Friday and Saturday nights; (see http://www.recreation.gov/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NRSO&parkId=70161).  Saturday evening, after flying, we will have a Halloween party, with prizes for the best costumes, the best jack-o-laterns (i.e., decorated pumpkins, for those of you who didn't grow up in the US).  Flying-related prizes will also be awarded as well as a MVD (most valuable driver) award.  We encourage all of you to bring a bowl of candy (so the kids of all ages can go trick-or-treating) and maybe even decorate your tent!

The weather at Big Sur should be lovely this time of the year, with mild temps during the days and cooler in the evenings.  The campground has grass campsites, flush toilets and running (cold) water.  It's a nice place to hang out and it's right across the street from Sand Dollar Beach, which has spectacular views and breathtaking sunsets.

Please let me know, as soon as possible, if you plan to attend (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ).  I will send out an Evite to the confirmed attendees in a couple of weeks to coordinate food for a potluck dinner.  If you plan to bring kids, please also let me know their ages (as early as possible), so we can have appropriate prizes/party favors for them.  This will be the last fly-in of the year, so you don't want to miss it!
