Beach Bash Update

Black Point Beach Bash – 5:50 to 9:30 PM Main Beach


Due to the unexpected weather pattern the Band has decided to move to the clubhouse so we can still have a good time!!

Sorry for the late notice the band did not feel comfortable getting equipment wet.  
The Bash will be officially at the clubhouse and will begin hopefully at 5:30 but with moving it might be a little delayed.
Don’t let the rain stop you from coming, bring your tents and enjoy some music.  
See you there.
