St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl & Trivia Challenge

 

CDABA’s 10th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl & Trivia Challenge will be held on Friday, March 15, 2019, starting at 5 p.m. The event will start at the Mindpower Gallery, 417 Fir Ave. (Hwy 38), Reedsport, OR 97467. This is an adult event. All proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the City of Reedsport’s Centennial Celebration (100 years in 2019).

 

Teams should pre-register at the Mindpower Gallery. Teams can also register the day of the event - before 5 pm on March 15, 2019. The registration fee per team is $20 for a team of 4, and $5 additional per person (unlimited number). Team registration forms are available at the Mindpower Gallery and from CDABA members. 

 

Volunteers are needed to host at the trivia challenge venues and to assist with grading. The goal is to have a minimum of two persons per trivia location. Volunteering is a great way to join in on the fun. There are seven trivia venues this year: Eagles Lodge, Moose Lodge, The Schooner Café, The Waterfront Tavern & Restaurant, Tides Inn, Rust’d Star, and Defeat River Brewery.

 

All teams will reassemble at the Eagles Club at 8:30 pm to learn the names of winning teams. Prizes to be awarded this year include a prize for the winning trivia team and a prize for the best dressed team (Got Green?).

 

Start planning your teams now and be sure to get your green on. For more information contact the Mindpower Gallery at 541-271-2485 or Kathleen Miller at kkmiller@reedsportlaw.com.

 

WHAT:             Beach Clean-up and Glass Float “Give-Away”

WHERE:          Reedsport, Oregon
WHEN:            Saturday, March 23, 2019
WHO:               Rotary Club of Reedsport

Rotary Club of Reedsport Sponsors the Glass Float “Give-Away” during SOLV’s Annual Great Oregon Spring Beach Clean-up.

 

The Rotary Club of Reedsport has once again adopted the beach accessed by Sparrow Park Road (just North of Gardiner) during SOLV’s Annual Great Oregon Spring Beach Clean-up on Saturday, March 23, 2019—rain or shine. 

 

To add to the excitement of this event the Rotary Club and Ocean Beaches Glassblowing & Gallery (Seal Rock, OR) are donating glass floats.  These floats will be given away by raffle to those who volunteer their time during the clean-up.  Participants will receive one raffle ticket for each bag of trash turned in during the day.  At the end of the clean-up, names will be drawn and each drawn ticket holder will receive a glass float – limit one per person. 

 

Meet us at the parking lot at the junction of Highways 101 & 38 at 9:30 am on Saturday, March 23, 2019.  Carpooling and transportation will be arranged that morning to get everyone to the clean-up site.  You can also join the group any time during the morning by simply coming to the beach site at the end of Sparrow Park Road (please note the road can be very rough and the parking is very limited).

 

The Rotary Club wishes to thank Bob & Vick Meyer of Ocean Beaches Glassblowing & Gallery for the discounted glass floats.  You can learn more about Ocean Beaches at www.oceanbeachesglass.com.  It also wishes to thank the Sugar Shack Bakery for the donation of donuts and Umpqua Bank for the donation of coffee for the morning’s event.
