Big Sur Monster Mash Fly-in, Oct 26-27th, 2013

Members,

BAPA invites you and your friends/family to attend the 2012 Monster Mash, on October 26-27, 2013 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 early next week 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!

One final note.  Currently, as of October 13th, 2013 the Plaskett Creek Campground is closed due to the current federal government shutdown.  If the campground remains closed we will have to cancel the fly-in as there are no other developed campgrounds available in the area. I will send an update on this early next week.
