This is a public beach! Please arrange for your athletes and spectators to use the buddy system. Pair up individuals to constantly monitor one another on the beach, in public places, AND ESPECIALLY IN THE WATER! Notify event stage and lifeguard staff immediately if anyone is missing! We are using a public VHF marine band channel for the refs to report scores and can advise the Lifeguard Staff which channel that is in order for them to monitor in case of emergency. In addition, we have a PA system for announcements and the usual Hawaiian Reggae (mostly!) music for your relaxing enjoyment that we can also use for any urgency.

The Grand Food and Beverage will be on site Saturday and Sunday. Delicious Steak and Chicken Tacos, Hot Dogs, Chips, Bomb Pops, Waters and Soft Drinks will be available at the set-up near the event stage.
Note that BBQs are NOT allowed anywhere on the beach!
Areas will be marked for allowed spots for canopies, basically anywhere not in the line of sight between the event stage and the courses.
NO CANOPIES OR LARGE UMBRELLAS WILL BE ALLOWED IN FRONT OF THE STAGE LINE OF SIGHT TO THE COURSES. Again, this will be clearly marked
Flotation devices are okay, just not on the side on the courses between the beach and the courses, line of sight so spectators and event management can see the courses, THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR COOPERATION!
And don’t forget to use sunscreen (and re-apply!) and STAY HYDRATED!
We sincerely hope that this is your most enjoyable and relaxing event of the year!
