Spring Break Beach Bash '08 - March 14-16 @ Crystal Beach!

It's that time of year again! That's right, it's time for TTORA's 6th Annual Spring Break Beach Bash! For the n00bs, check out pics from our most recent Beach Bashes:

2007 - Beach Bash Pics! - NWS? (No nudes but plenty of bikini's)
2006 - My pics (couldn't find the thread with everyone's pics)

This year we are planing on having free food provided by Champion Toyota on Saturday and a big welcome to Don McGill Toyota who will provide the grub on Sunday for all TTORA members and their guests! Big thanks to Champion Toyota and Don McGill Toyota!

Directions -

Go down to Galveston Island and take the ferry over to the Bolivar Peninsula. Go down about 5 miles until you hit your first trafic signal. This should be Crystal Beach Rd. Make a right, go down to the beach and we'll be on the left hand side. EDIT - We've moved just one block east from our original spot. We'll be setting up between Kahla Dr. and Gulf Shores Dr. Here's a map:

What you'll need to bring?

Drinks - Alcohol is allowed on the beach BUT glass containers are prohibited. They do take this pretty seriously so beer cans only, guys.

Wood - As in firewood. As some of you know, I'm a fire bug and this weekend will be no exception. If you've got some sitting around, bring it by. Pallets make great fires too! Just be sure that you break them down before brining them out to the beach as we don't want to leave rusted nails.

Beads - If you'd like to participate in the "bead tossing festivities" that happen later in the afternoon it might be a good idea for you to pick up some beads at a party store. Just a tip, the gigantic beads will normally net you A LOT of attention. Just ask Marco.

I'll be bringing my canopy and the 6 & 8 foot tables that I've got. Not sure if Vince will be able to bring the pit again this year so you might also want to bring a grill in case I can't make enough space on mine. As a reminder, you now MUST have a beach parking sticker in order to park on the beach. These stickers are $10 and can be purchased from convenience stores on the Bolivar. Be sure that you get your stickers before arriving to the beach. At $10/sticker, I won't be stocking up on these things.

So who's in??? I'm going to try to make it on Friday evening but I likely won't be there until Saturday morning since I might be working that Friday.

Great! I think you'll find that we are a pretty easy going group. You'll probably be a little lost in the conversations at first as we normally talk about previous runs, meetings, and the stupid stuff we see on the boards (usually the National Board). Don't be afraid to introduce yourself or just find me and I'll introduce you to the crew.

Yes, camping will be allowed on the beach.

camping is allowed, although not advised! Your a better man than I am if you are able to camp a full night on the beach. Hell I have a beach house and I get scarred in it.

its really not THAT bad I guess. or is it?

It's Spring Break, there will be millions of people there partying all night long. So getting any sleep while trying to camp is next to impossible...unless you camp far away down the beach away from the "zoo".

Harold, I talked to the boss man about the grub and I think we are good to go with it. Just gotta run it by the GM.

Thanks

Excellent! Let me know when you get the final OK.

Normally, everyone is pretty hung over from Saturday night. In the past, most folks leave at around noon-1pm on Sunday. Sometimes we get our second wave on Sunday's though so it all depends on the crowd and participation.

What shannon said. If you could pitch a tent injust a few minutes down the beach it would be better if you wanted to sleep.

But even that I dont really know about cause there can be some shaddy SOB's down there at night and you really never know. Its always a good idea to try and stay in some kind of a group while your down there

Oh and for everyone down there the police have ZERO tolerance policy... I promice I know

Damn, those pics bring back memories. Had my "1st time" not far from there Used to go down and chase girls almost every weekend. If I were a lot younger and a little less married, I'd be all over that!

So being married has a scale now. Let's see I am almost three years into mine, hom much married am I on the scale. Can I get away with a little of girl chasing? Pete, please inform, inquiring minds want to know.

Totally up to the individual and his estimation of spousal forgivness and taste for risk/loss I think I'd be hard pressed to find a better girl for me, so I'm gonna behave myself. Besides, I'm getting a bit "long in the tooth" for the hunt

I think the more married you then the more girl chasing your allowed to do, if TV has told me anything it has told me this.

Ahhhhhhhhhh, San Marcos-primo hunting territory It's a wonder I got outta there with a degree (many did not). Was a bit detrimental to the GPA, though. Is that place still teaming with hotties? I remember this one time on the library balcony with Amy....

Well said buddy! On another note, I need to do some more cleaning at my yard so I think I will have some more wood this year as well. I'll make sure to remove all the nails. I might need a samll trailer; James do ya think I can barrow yours?
