Hello all,

We look forward to seeing you down at Beach 3.  Here's what you need to know:
  • Who:  You and your families!!!!  Do not forget beach tags!!!
  • What: Labor Day Games (of course) featuring a schedule of amazing events and feats of skill in which neighbors compete with neighbors for glory and MEDALS!!!
  • When:  10:00 AM registration with the 1 Mile Fun Run at 11AM and the final tug o' war event wrapping up around 3:00 PM.  Fishing derby participants get out whenever you think you can catch the biggest fish, but before the fishing competition ends at 11AM.  A full schedule is provided below and attached!
  • Where: Beach 3 - Register in the parking lot!
  • How:  Run, hop, swim, row, paddle, and dig for pennies, nickles, dimes, quarters, and a dollar coin for each age group of the penny pile!  
  • An Extra 'V' for Volunteers:  We have some amazing volunteers lined up, some of who have volunteered for several years; but we can always use more.  It is not too late to volunteer!!!  You can come to the registration table tomorrow or e-mail Kevin or Jasmine Sheriff at sheriff436@gmail.com or jasmine5762@gmail.com
  • An Extra 'W' for Weather:  Looks to be mid- to high-80s and humid, with a potential stray shower and a real feel in the low 90s. Drink plenty of water and wear sunscreen please!  The Justice Cheer Team will be there selling water and other concessions if you need it!  Here's the Capital Weather Gang link for tomorrow's forecast:  https://www.washingtonpost.com/weather/2019/09/01/dc-area-forecast-cloudier-cooler-today-with-spotty-shower-or-two-warmer-labor-day/.  
One big reminder for those boaters out there: The water between beaches 2 and 3 will be closed a little before 2:00 PM up until about 3ish for the water events per the schedule below, so get to the side of the channel you want to be at before about 1:45 to be safe.
Thank you to all the volunteers, without which this event would not be possible.  Join their ranks and achieve the greatest glory of all: giving back to your community!  
Take care and see you tomorrow!
