As we return to some semblance of normalcy, the TTF will be resurrected in all its former glory. Our local haunt, the Parkway Tavern, will be host to our kickoff meet and greet with nary a scrumptious Beveridge for your taste bud pleasures. Thereafter, we will explore the wonders of urban north Tacoma as we head to Spanish Ballroom to get our 90's dance flashback on. Fuel up Saturday morning with some gastronomic delights before we wind our way out to the Lakebay Marina via meandering backroads before pitching tents if you are so inclined. Although no BBQ this year, the Marina does offer a basic kitchen and there are a couple of other hangouts in the area. The evening will be framed in fire and music and a return to social mingling. It wouldn’t be a TTF weekend without the obligatory Beans on Toast breakfast Sunday before returning to our respective towns of origin via Southworth and Vashon.
Itinerary (subject to change)
Notes and Caveats:
For our northern brethren, the Lakebay Marina is about 45 minutes from Southworth either straight shot or via backroads. Alternatively, meet up at the Float in Purdy between noon and 1:00 PM
Camping is not included in the Rally Pack, but is available for $25.00 per TENT (this goes directly to Lakebay Marina)
Space for RV’s is very limited. Spencer Lake RV park, 10 minutes away is recommended.
The campground is rustic but there are restrooms. If you do need showers, slink into the RV park or over to Penrose state park.
