Let's schedule shots bingo for one afternoon. Which is good for you guys? Saturday? Sunday?

volleyball tournament can happen in the main lawn. it's been a couple of years since i was at san souci. there is a net there, right?
Mandynjeff


Posted on Wednesday, June 24, 2009 - 11:16 am:

I have added this post to the new message board's CSS July 2009 - Get to know you thread.

and here was my reply:

There are volleyball nets on both beaches (textile & a/n). The one on the main beach is over by the watersports I believe & the on on the AN beach is to the right when you enter the AN area at SSB.

Sunday sounds like a great day for shot bingo to me.
