Wa, Ocean Shores 7-8 Mar 09 Seabreeze Weekend
- Just a reminder! Seabreeze Weekend at Ocean Shores, WA, on Mar 7-8, 2009, is only a month away. It's been four years since the last Seabreeze Weekend, and now the Capitol Volkssport Club is continuing the fun tradition started by the Hopkins Telephone Pioneers. The Ocean Shores Convention Center, co-sponsor, is also hosting the Beachcomber Fun Fair with great exhibits and talks the same weekend. There will be 5 walks and one bike, with late finish times both days. If this isn't enough walking for you, there are also two YRE's in Ocean Shores and one in Aberdeen on your way. Better plan to stay a couple nights at least.
