Sound to Sand Beach Party Camp and Cookout

We are putting a new spin on our traditional “End of Summer” cookout/BBQ this year.

A full day of play from the Sound to the Sand with a cookout and overnight camp on the Washington Coast.

Meet at Defenders Northwest Gig Harbor Saturday morning at 7:15am (for the folks on the peninsula side, or at Griots Garage Tacoma at 7:45am for the car show)

We are departing Griots Garage in Tacoma at 9am – headed to the WA coast for some beach driving, beach combing, and an afternoon cookout with the fine folks from Fishgirl Fox Island serving amazing seafood!

If the weather holds we will be eating on the beach, and for those interested we can then head over to a nearby camp location to fire up the campfire and spend the night. If the weather sucks or if you other things to do, folks can head home and be back within a few hours drive.

Final locations for camp and beach meet will be provided at the Griots meetup – or by email if you are coming in late.

Cost is $20 per person to help defray the expenses of campsites and food. Beverages are not provided, and you will need to bring your own plates, bowls, and utensils.
