Agenda

2019 MBBA Spring Meet Agenda

 

 Welcome members, friends and guests to the Massachusetts Beach Buggy Association’s 2019 Annual Spring Meet.  The Spring Meet Committee has spent several months designing an event that continues the traditions and success of previous events.  The best way for a member to support this event is to purchase raffle tickets, food and encourage our junior members to participate in the many activities we have planned for them. Now relax, catch up with old friends and enjoy the weekend.

CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOL is NOT allowed in any State Park.  Violators may be asked to leave the property, issued a fine or even arrested.   A beverage “Koozie” does not qualify as an alternative to the rules.  Park Staff will be patrolling the area all weekend.  Please remember our individual behavior reflects on the MBBA as a whole.  We hope everyone has a great time and thank you for your cooperation.

Everyone attending Spring Meet, even for an hour must check in.  Every vehicle will receive and must display the MBBA Mirror Tag in the front window.   Failure to display a mirror tag may result in your vehicle being towed.

All vehicles attending the event will receive a check-in “Goody Bag” with a limit of one per vehicle/family.  In addition to 1 goodie bag per family, all adult members will get a copy of the 2019 Spring Meet Agenda.

During Check-In, all children will receive a poster board, crayons and the theme for this year’s junior member poster contest. (Posters must be completed and turned in no later than Saturday at 1:30PM)
