    BFI Big Beach BBQ Bonanza - Sun 12th May 2013

    Meeting Point/Time

    For those that don't know where the beach is, we'll be meeting at 11:15am in Tesco car park in Burnham-on-Sea. Link here: Ben Travers Way, Burnham-on-Sea - Google Maps (it's before the arrow, quite hard to miss). We will then be leaving there at 11:30 sharp and heading to the beach.
    For anyone that misses us at Tesco (or wants to make their own way to the beach), when you get to Brean, drive through the town, past all of the holiday parks and whatever else, then join the beach at this point:



    You will approach it from the left of this picture and the entrance is on your left hand side

    Depending on how busy it is will depend on where we park up, so just have a look out for a load of BMWs and a battered old Discovery - hopefully with some sailflags too.

    I'll update this with more info about the BBQ arrangements later.


    -------------------------------------------------------


    Brean Beach is part of a six mile length of beach with sand dunes and firm sand, which is the second longest stretch of sand in Europe. The beach is great for families.
    Ice creams and fast food are often sold on the beach at the car park area in spring and summer.
    At low tide a wide exposure of soft sand and mud is exposed leading to the water's edge, but note that it is very dangerous to approach the water at low tide. The beach is patrolled by wardens from May 1st to September 30th. Dogs are welcome on this beach. Vehicles can park on this beach during the day in designated parking areas.
    Located here: TA8 2SE - Google Maps (Link updated, seems Google was just picking up on the word 'beach' and showing all sorts of places )





    Proposed dates are May 12th or May 19th 2013. These are the two Sundays without a Bank Holiday directly after them, so should hopefully not be too busy.

    Bring your car, bring your family, bring your BBQ and bring the suntan lotion (or an umbrella )

    So, who's up for it?

    There are only two rules:

    1. Take your litter home.

    2. NO HOONING. Berrow Beach is a public car park and is covered by the Road Traffic Act. If you get caught driving like an arsehole on the beach you'll be prosecuted in exactly the same manner as you would on a public road. Plus bear in mind that it's a popular local spot on a weekend so we'll be sharing the beach with local walkers/families/horseriders. There's a 5mph speed limit on the sand as well as a blanket ban on driving about for no reason. If you want to show off your dubious drift skills, then please do it somewhere else.

    Also, there's a fee to park on the beach, it's only a couple of quid which you pay to the nice lady by the entrance. Be aware, she'll come up to the passenger window and gets quite annoyed if you make her walk round to the driver's side It'd be a good idea to bring about a fiver in change to pay her - she's usually quite tetchy if she gets handed paper money. Yeah, I know...

    If Lee's up for coming all the way down from Middlesbrough, none of you have got an excuse

    Doesn't matter if you're not in a BMW either
