We're putting together the West Coast Tour for September 2010. We've demo'd in Sacramento on Labor Day, September 6th for the past 4-5 years and we always get an enormous crowd there, but we're sensible of the groans from Bay Area inhabitants.
(Sacramento has a confluence of factors that make it especially easy for us. Our West Coast agent lives there. He provides a place to stay---not inconsequential in a state where Motel 6 rooms can run $120/night. He helps with the permits and so forth. And we draw from Nevada as well there.)
Anyway, we've done Bay Area demos going back ten years at least, including three stops at Coyote Point in San Mateo. That one has the requisite parking for CLC's big rig, but the beach there tends to be rough all the time.
So here's the wish list: a park in the Bay Area with a protected beach and plenty of parking. We should be able to park our 40-foot-long rig quite close to the beach---we'll have 20 boats with us, not all of them lightweight kayaks. The park administration needs to be friendly to out-of-state vendors and not too bureaucratic.
