GAPIMNY heads to JONES BEACH for surf ‘n sand ‘n sunshine, SUNDAY, JULY 16
This year we’re kicking off our GAPIMNY beach season a month earlier than usual, to take fuller advantage of prime cruising
time. The boys of GAPIMNY are ready to hit the waves, and invite everyone to come along! Bring your packed lunch,
refreshments, blankets and towels, shades and sunscreen, and of course, your itsy bitsy teeny weeny bikini! What’s
a GAPIMNY beach trip without a skimpy tan line to titillate the eye?
As in years past, we’ll be organizing a meeting party to gather next Sunday morning at Penn Station and ride together on the L.I.R.R.
If you’d rather come later, please follow the train, bus and driving directions shown below. Come find us on the far eastern
end of the beach, beyond LOT 6 (that’s the gay end for you Jones newbies). If you’re driving, we suggest you arrive early,
as parking spots in Lot 6 quickly fill up on a sunny day.
MEETING TIME at PENN STATION: SUNDAY, JULY 16, 10:15 AM
Come find Social Co-Chair Conrad in front of the Long Island Rail Road main ticket booths at 34th St. Penn Station (this is across from the McDonalds).
