1-4 people with whom I’d/we’d like to be on a bus:



along Beach Drive which offers sophisticated dining venues for you to choose from.  They may not let us scruffy beachcombers dine inside their fine interiors,   

The food stand offers a limited menu, including hotdogs, hamburgers, fries, Caesar salad, chicken Caesar salad, etc.   If that doesn’t suit you, you may enjoy a lunch brought from home (OK, from Publix!) under this large pavilion that we’ve rented for your comfort.

To join us on this trip to Fort Desoto, print the reservation form (click on green button below) and mail it along with your check (made out to the BBC) for $25 per person to the address below.   On Feb. 26, we will conduct our lottery and you will be notified shortly thereafter of your seat confirmation or waitlist status.
