For our Thursday, July 2nd meeting, we are going to have an IRISH LUAU! I know, I know – people think of Hawaii when you say Luau. But there’s actually a strong surfing connection between Ireland and Hawaii, and I’ve got the film to prove it!
We’ll start with a POTLUCK LUAU MEAL supplied by members; the IAS will supply paper and plastic products; soda and coffee; and luau décor. Not sure what to bring for a Luau potluck? Have fun with it – Google some ideas and go for it!
Please note that we will not start going through the buffet until 7:00 pm in order to get everything set up properly. If your dinnertime is earlier, then please eat a snack in the afternoon that will tide you over until 7 pm. Feel free to bring your own cooler, also, if you want to relax with a cold one.
We’re also going to have a BEST BEACH BUM contest just for fun — break out your favorite Hawaiian shirt, board shorts, grass skirt, coconut bra, lei, etc. to get into the “surfs up” spirit of our luau! Prizes will be awarded for the best beach outfits during the meeting!
After we get everyone seated with some yummy food, we will watch the award-winning 75-minute 2009 SURFING FILM Waveriders about the Irish roots of surfing! Narrated by Irish actor Cillian Murphy, this documentary shows, among other things, some famous surfers surfing the monster waves off the west coast of Ireland!
PLEASE NOTE WE WILL ALSO HAVE SIGN UP SHEETS AT THE MEETING FOR IAS MEMBERS WILLING TO HELP OUT WITH IRISH DUTIES AT THE COASTAL VIRGINIA CUP ON SATURDAY, JULY 18TH!!!!!!!
