OC Spearos First Annual Catalina Lobster Mixer

 

C A T A L I N A  L O B S T E R  M I X E R

TWO HARBORS, CATALINA ISLAND  |  DECEMBER 8 – 10, 2017

 

December 8-10 we will be holding a Campout at the Two Harbors Campground. The trip will be limited to the first 50 Club Members that sign up. You will need to do your best to partner up and share tents.  We will not have room for 50 tents so sharing is important.

If you plan on bringing your family you will need to rent a separate site.

We have rented sites 2.3.4. and 6.  Right on the bluff overlooking the water.   You will not need to register for the trip if you will not be sleeping in our camp.  If you are bringing your own family you should try and get close to us if you can.  If you are bringing a boat and plan on sleeping on it register anyway so we can get a good count on who is going.  Boat sleepers are not a part of the 50 person limit.

Sorry but no unaccompanied minors on this trip, you must have a parent or guardian to accompany you are under 18 years old.

This will be December so prepare to be cold.  Bring warm/waterproof clothing and tents that can handle rain.  Even if it does not rain it will be very wet every morning.  It will likely be windy also.  Once you’re in the water you will be as warm as you ever are.  We suggest a 7mm wetsuit that time of year with booties and gloves.  Plan like you are doing a Nor Cal trip.

YOUR COST:               $24.00 per person.

This covers firewood and personal campground fees. OC Spearos will cover the rest.
