Steampunk Ottawa Swim at Britannia Beach, Ottawa, Sunday, 23. July 2017

UPDATE: Sunshine in the latest forecast for Sunday (tomorrow)!!! Is everyone ready for fun on the beach at Britannia. I certainly hope so!
Bring your sunscreen, wide brimmed hats and parasols.

We will set up towards the east end of the beach, on grass, near/under trees, away from the huge crowds and on the beach's grassy edge.

I've chosen Britannia again because of the easy access, parking and amenities.
Picnic stuff as usual. BYO food, beverage, something to share, dishes, cutlery, cups, etc. (please avoid throw-away plastic/styrofoam or other non-reusables). Ground cover (blankets, rugs, etc.) are also a smart idea.

It's time to put on your best Steampunk swim attire and strut your stuff on the beach. There will be a Bathing Costume contest as well as a Swim Fashion Show for the Cameras. So please everyone, do wear your finest in Steampunk swim garments. We have some small prizes to give out. Categories will be Best Lady, Best Gent, Best under 13. Choose the category that you feel suites you best.

Games and fun: tug'o'war; limbo dance; beach darts; (possibly) video making; sand castle building; the body bury; and much more. Please feel free to suggest ideas and/or bring beach activities for all to share.

There are 2 large free parking lots: one as you enter the park to the south of the beach and another on the west side of the beach beside the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre. Carpooling is also a great way to go. So if you are driving and have room, please offer a ride to others. Thank you.

Buses: from Lincoln Fields Station #16 Britannia goes right into the park to the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre.
Biking: the bike paths go from the Ottawa River Parkway right into Britannia Park and through to Carling at Andrew Haydon Park

If anyone owns a portable changing tent, please let me know.
