The Show will go on

I am sure if you have been planning on competing or attending the Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic this weekend, you have been watching the surf and weather forecast closely. It looks like this year is going to be one of the times where we must pay our dues to the Surf Gods. Big surf and unfavorable winds are what they are predicting. But as a couple of the competitors said to me via email "we are surfers not sissies" and "we love sloppy conditions or we wouldn't surf here" so the show will go on! Makes plans to be here and watch the competition, enjoy our beer garden, watch the Oregon Coast premiere of Compassing by Cyrus Sutton, eat tasty food from the Ribcage and Ben & Jeff's, listen to great music by 3 live bands, bid on surfboards and other products during the silent auction, win great prizes during the raffle, tour our vendor display area, and all of this under our 4,000 sq ft enclosed event tent! It's going to be a good time regardless of the conditions!
