Beach Clean-Ups! Come out and get free stuff

Postby adseguy » Thu Jun 02, 2011 9:59 pm

The Chicago surfrider foundation including myself are inviting you to come help us clean-up our beaches. We'll provide the trash bags, just bring yourself and others and some good spirits :)

The first one is @ Oak Street beach just north of Navy Pier. It should be a great day out and lots of people will be joining in. Someone always pulls through with free merchandise and give-aways. It's this Saturday @ 2pm. and usually runs for an hour maybe 2. You can stay as long or as little as you want. Just help keep our beach clean and we can grab a brew or three ON ME!

The second one is coming June 19th @ Montrose Beach (Our favorite of course) I think it'll be around the same time. Please please please show up to this if you kite there. It makes all the difference. Bring the family too and if it's a nice day again, more beers on me from the local bar at the beach......"The Dock" I guarantee it!

See you there!

This is a great idea. I never kite the city but will try and make the Oak St event. The montrose deal I think I am in France for a couple weeks then so no go for me. But...I'm sure all you Montrose riders will show up, eh? 8)

I missed reading your post so unfortunately didn't came to the first one.
Hopefully I'll be in town at the 18th, I'll try to be at Montrose as well...

Remember, it's not about the cleaning, it's about the company !! :wink:

I was planning on being at Montrose on the 18th. Now I'm leaving for Tennessee again on Monday. How come I don't get sent to NC or The Gulf?

Just an update:

BIG THANK YOU to our members who came out to Oak Street Beach to help out with the clean-up on June 4th. It was a great event and Brett Dennen gave a rocking performance at Navy Pier afterward. Thank you to Barefoot Wine for supplying the crew with amazing food and beverages - it was just what everyone needed after working so hard in the sun!

What? You weren't able to go - You feel really awful about not being there and you want to help out?
We've got just the answer for your dilemma!

Come on down to Montrose Beach on Sunday, June 19th to help us celebrate International Surfing Day (ISD). We'll kick the day off right with a beach clean-up from 10 AM - 12 PM and end the day with a Stand-Up Paddleboard session and DEMO!!! That's right, come make our beaches a little bit cleaner and try your balance on a stand-up paddleboard! It's all the rage these days!! We will even have some snacks and beverages for you (not that we feel we need to bribe you).

You can't make it this weekend either?? Jeez - you can still help out our local chapter by heading to Patagonia in the month of June to purchase a shiny, new pair of shoes!! It's Advocate Weeks at Patagonia Chicago (see below):
Advocate Weeks at Patagonia Chicago
June 1-30, 2011
Be an Advocate, Support Local Conservation Efforts

Patagonia will donate $10 to local conservation efforts for each pair of Patagonia shoes you purchase between June 1-30, 2011 at Patagonia Chicago. Donations raised from the sale of Patagonia shoes during this period at Patagonia Chicago will benefit Surfrider- Chicago Chapter, http://ww2.surfrider.org/chicago/.

Surfrider is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world's oceans, waves, and beaches for all people, through conservation, activism, research, and education.

Many ways to support Surfrider Chicago in the month of June. We hope to see you soon!!!

It looks like we will be attending the beach clean up. I'm looking forward to doing some SUPing.
So, is it definately on Sunday the 19th?

Yeah it's the 19th. We thought about the 18th, but when everyone found out International surfing day was just the day after we thought it appropriate to move it.

I won't be able to come as my bachelor party is the day before and in another state. I'm really bummed about it, but what can I do. Someone PMed me that they wanted to do a clean-up in Waukegan and I thought that sounded GREAT! Just pick a hot day in summer and do it! Bring some games and/or prizes to the beach and it'll be a good time.

I am trying to get the whole family to go and clean up the beach. We should be there in the morning for a bit and to play in the water too.

What part of the beach are we going to? The kite launch area, or the main beach? Will there be Surfrider markers to identify where to go?
