The event page link doesn't work for me. It just takes me to my event invitations page. Do I need to be part of a certain facebook group to see this?

This was perhaps one of the most epic days ever... I'm thinking the 3rd Saturday of every month should be a meetup day. :D

Even if we can't go to the beach, it would be nice to just meet up and talk shop. :P

Actually it's Matt's tail. He was nice enough to let me try it on and flop around in it for a while. :)

Im sunburned everywhere on my upper half and my muscles are killing me.. And yet i feel SO AWESOME :) I had an incredible time with you guys and i agree with a meetup even if not in tail and just hang out. So much love and support in this little group.. lol And of course thanks guys for carrying me around and dragging me into the surf.. haha I feel so bad i had to have you guys do that..unfortunately my mertender was working :/ cause i would have brought him along to carry me along.. and ah yes i forgot i did a recording of us while we were resting up..
