SATURDAY APRIL 7TH, 2018
10th Annual Florida BMX Spring Fling & Reunion at the St. John's Pier Pavilion. Address: 350 A1A Beach Blvd, St Augustine, FL 32080
***IMPORTANT! Bring your own chairs! Feel free to bring a EZ-up canopy, too! And bring sunscreen! The Florida sun can be harsh! First come, first pick on your spot for the day! NO TABLES OR CHAIRS ARE AVAILABLE. So please bring your own! Beer / alcohol is allowed ONLY in the pavilion and volleyball court area.
7AM - 9AM is setup time. The parking lot that we use is a public lot used by beach goers. It WILL fill up pretty fast as the morning rolls on!
9AM is the "official" time that the Fling begins. Please stop by the REGISTRATION booth inside the pavilion to get your FREE WRISTBAND. You'll be able to start buying raffle tickets at this time, as well. You WILL need your wristband in order to go through the free food line later in the day. This helps prevent food and drinks going to the beach folks looking for a free meal. 
At around 2PM we will have a autograph session with the special guests inside the pavilion area. This will be the set time to get items signed! 
RAFFLE info- Raffle tickets will be on sale on Friday night at Salt Life for those buying $100 in tickets ONLY. See Von at Salt Life! Raffle tickets will be on sale at 9am at the pavilion. We will be calling numbers throughout the day, with the big-ticket items (wheels, frames, bikes) at the end of the day, somewhere around 3PM.
Raffle tickets are 1 for $5, 5 for $20, and 25 for $100. If you spend $100 on raffle tickets, you will be able to pick an item immediately off of a special product table in the pavilion!
RAFFLE TICKET SALES and EVENT T-SHIRT SALES are the ONLY way that we can pay the tab for putting on this entire event. It pays for the food, pavilion rental, event insurance, supplies, and travel and hotel expenses for some of our guests. So please buy a shirt, and some raffle tickets! (THANK YOU!)
