The Weather…

This is a rain or shine event! As of right now, it looks like the rain may hold off until the afternoon, giving everyone time to get down to Beach House H-D®. If you would like to drive your car, you can register, receive your hat, and roll all your dice at Carolina Coast H-D® and head down to Beach House to eat and participate in games.

Registration and check-in opens at 9am, and the last group out will leave at 10:30.
