Beach Ball 2016: Back to the Beach!

Good news!  We were able to get an extension on providing head counts to our caterers, so we are now extending Beach Ball registration through Monday, September 5, 2016 (Labor Day). Registration is now closed. 

The Straight Eight's annual Beach Ball invitational for 2016 is officially September 16-18, although several of us will be arriving in town on Thursday, September 15.

Our host hotel is again The Atlantic Sands, located at 1 Baltimore Avenue, Rehoboth Beach, DE. 19971.

We have a whimsical beach-themed event planned this year, with a Friday evening party (including food/beverages) at CAMP Rehoboth (37 Baltimore Ave, Rehoboth Beach, DE. 19971), a Saturday car show (with lunch) on the street next to the hotel, and a Saturday evening awards banquet and silent auction. Our normal breakfast bargains on Saturday and Sunday mornings are also included.

This year we've added a fun new category to our Ballot: Favorite Beach Theme Display.  Think sand and surf; think summer; think Beach Boys, Frankie, and Annette; Think beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, boogie boards, and any other 'beachy' accoutrements you can use as decorations for your car and it's space. Be as extravagant or a subtle as you want, but have fun with it! 

And the whimsy won't stop there, but will continue with the night's festivities, as this year we are asking you to pack your best Tommy Bahama/Hawaiian shirts and chino/linen/khaki/cargo pants, which will be the dress code for the "Life's A Beach" banquet and awards!

Please be advised, that due to the limited parking spaces for the show, and in the spirit of fairness to members, we must limit cars on display at the show to LCCI members who are registered for the Beach Ball Invitational.

If anyone has an interesting item, service, gift basket, etc. to donate to the silent auction, please contact Thomas Trimmer: ttrimmer@cox.net

Get ready for a fun trip "...Back To the Beach!"
