August 18

- Free
Gerard Forgnone 1960s Water Pumper Pismo Beach California

Agenda and important information
Because of the overwhelming success of the 2016 event, the 2018 Old School Buggy Reunion is on! Check out the Frequently Asked Questions.

Beach Location
The Old School Buggies crew is targeting to arrive on August 15, 2018 and set up the RV camp in the same location as last year: just South of the Sand Highway entrance between posts 4 and 5. The Old School Buggy Reunion banner will be up to mark the spot.

Agenda August 18, Saturday

9:45 am Beach Parade (low tide) – start lining up the buggies on the beach.

Unlike the 2016 event, the 2018 event will start with the beach parade. The beach parade was one of the high points of the 2016 Buggy Reunion. It is important to run the parade at low tide thus we will start lining up the buggies at 9:45 am on the beach. The starting point will be where the Old School Buggy Reunion banner is posted on the beach.

A volunteer will be at the banner organizing this activity. Buggies should line up facing North. A pilot buggy will lead the procession down the beach, heading North, u-turn, and return South to the end of the beach. The pilot buggy will then lead all the buggies to the Meet and Greet area. Just follow the leader.

10:30ish-12:00 – The Meet & Greet

The parade pilot car will lead everyone to the Meet and Greet area. There will be a designated place to park all the buggies which provides an opportunity to see the buggies together, take photos, talk to the owners, see old friends, and just hang out.

The plan is to park in the same area as the 2016 event: a few hundred yards South of the Sand Highway entrance and just East of all the beach campers.

1:00-3:00 p.m. – Dune Action

Regroup at the Meet & Greet area. A pilot buggy will lead everyone out to the largest dune where freestyle hill climbs will take place. In 2016, the water pumpers stole the show. Who will be hot in 2018?

3:00-5:00 p.m. – Heads Up Run

A pilot car will lead buggies from the dune action to a designated flat, smooth area where drivers can line up for heads up, hammer down, straight line runs.

8:30 p.m. – Outdoor Movie

The outdoor movie will feature buggies and personalities from the 1950s-1960s. The location will be where the Old School Buggies crew is camping on the beach

PROJECTED ATTENDANCE
Based on 2016 attendance, over 400 people representing more than 150 buggies. Buggies of all types attended last year: water pumpers, pan buggies, tunnel buggies, Manx/Manx Types, Tow’ds, rear and mid-engined sand rails.
