archaeology visit to Marshall's Beach Friday

Posted Friday morning at approximately 8am:


“Looking forward to seeing everyone at Marshall’s Beach today for the Community Picnic.  Winds looks good to shuttle folks via skiff from the Lindsay/Hopwood/Ferris beach.  We’ll start shuttling people from the beach ~10:30.  See you there!”




Rockshow! IX 2.0 is this Saturday! Just a reminder that ferries coming Saturday and leaving Sunday may be a bit busier than usual.
More on the amazing lineup of acts to follow...
