Please allow us to provide you with this reminder and update on our Beach Ball In Motion annual invitational event for September 2018.

We encourage you to share this with your friends and members in other regions!

Remember, this year we have overhauled Beach Ball, including a sleek new host hotel, and new locations for the Saturday car show and awards dinner. We’ve also trimmed the budget to substantially reduce the registration fee, while maintaining an awesome experience!

We have already exceeded our registration headcount goal and year-over-year growth is up! Thanks to all who share our excitement about this year's event and registered early.
After perusing the information below, feel free to contact us with any additional questions you have.

Also, we've heard that some are interested in room-sharing for even more cost savings (at least, we hope that's why!). You can contact us and we can help match up people who are considering a roommate for the weekend.

Event dates and host hotel location:
Registration fee and deadlines:
  • $119 per person by August 31.
  • Cancellation deadline is also August 31 to be eligible for refund.

Things to know about the hotel:

The Hyatt Place is located on Rehoboth Bay, and is just a block from the ocean in Dewey Beach (which typically attracts a younger crowd).
  • It is a pet friendly hotel! We already have registrants planning to bring their dog with them. There is a one-time $75 surcharge per stay with a pet. Notify the front desk upon check-in that you have a pet.
  • There is a lobby coffee and cocktail bar, which we haven't had at previous locations.
  • Daily complimentary hot breakfast is included with your stay, which we haven’t had in previous locations.
  • There is covered parking under the hotel.
  • It is located next door to the landmark Rusty Rudder restaurant and bar which offers live entertainment, with indoor and outdoor seating on a waterfront deck.
  • The beach and other great restaurants/bars and shops are within walking distance.

Dewey Beach transportation and parking:

Keep in mind that while the host hotel and awards dinner are in Dewey Beach, the rest of the weekend will be spent elsewhere, so don't fret about the parking and transportation!

  • Along with covered parking under the Hyatt for room holders (one space per room), there is street parking on each side street next to the hotel and on other nearby side streets.
  • Parking meters/fees will not be in effect during our stay.
  • The Rusty Rudder parking lot has ample parking for our Saturday dinner.
  • The Rehoboth-Dewey Jolly Trolley stop is steps from the hotel, which offers a $5 round trip from there to The Village by the Sea on Rehoboth Ave (one block over from the Blue Moon). NOTE: we are still looking into the shoulder-season shuttle schedule with possible augmentation for us.
Schedule of Events: Event registrants will receive a “Know Before You go” email with instructions for getting to the initial events and receiving your registration packets. For those staying at the hotel, you will get your packet upon check-in at the front desk. For those staying off-site, we will have registration packets with us at the various events.
