Grab a drink with the chapter this Wednesday
Instead of our usual monthly chapter meeting, we’re gathering at Penn Social (map, Green/Yellow/Red line accessible) to grab drinks and talk waves, river, hurricanes, and turkey. Come meet your fellow D.C. chapter members. Not a member? No problem, all are welcome to come hang!
Where’s Penn Social?

Meet us at Lululemon in Georgetown on Wednesday, November 5 at 7pm. Pete Stauffer and Paul Herzog from Surfrider HQ are attending the meeting and will talk about their visit to DC and Ocean Friendly Gardens! We’ll also have Surfrider’s new CEO, Chad Nelson, in attendance. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to have this many HQ staff at a chapter meeting!
We’ll also discuss #BanTheFoamMoCo, a recap of our Fall OBX trip, and plans for 2015!
After the meeting, we’ll grab beers and snacks at a local establishment while we talk waves, Hurricane Gonzalo epicness, and all things river.

Join us and the DC Dragon Boat Club on October 11th for a cleanup along the SW Waterfront!
Meet up at Gangplank Marina (600 Water St SW) at 10am. Bring your board (SUP), boat, or paddle-able flotation device. Volunteers without vessels will join together to paddle 1 of the Club’s dragon boats (holds 22 people! Imagine how much trash we can fit!)
Dress for the weather. Light, non-cotton layers highly recommended! Clean up supplies will be provided.
After the cleanup, we’ll celebrate our hard work at Cantina Marina!
RSVP on Facebook or Meetup! We hope to see you there!
Montgomery County: Not all wildlife is natural.
A quarter of trash collected from our local rivers is expanded polystyrene foam (often known as Styrofoam). Let’s make it zero.
The Montgomery County council has a hearing on Tuesday, October 14, about bill 41-14 to ban expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam from food service businesses and ban loose EPS foam packaging (you know…packing peanuts). Banning it at the source prevents it from reaching our rivers and waters.
If you live in Montgomery County, we need you to fill out the action alert below to tell your council members to pass this bill and help protect our local rivers and waterways!
Don’t live in Montgomery County? Share this with those who do.
Every email makes a difference…yes, even yours.
We’re meeting at Lululemon in Georgetown this Wednesday at 7pm to recap September and talk about the awesomeness ahead for October (OBX trip this weekend, #BanTheFoamMoCo and Southwest Waterfront cleanup …spoiler alert). All are welcome, including non-members. We’ll grab drinks and chips after.
