Hair of the Dog, January 1st 2019

Sunday, December 23rd, 2018

As is tradition for TOPW (despite last year‘s postponement of the dip) we will kick off the year with the Hair of the Dog walk on January 1st.

Meet: 11am on the beach/boardwalk by Sunnyside Pavillion [map]
There’s usually a huge crowd, so we normally break up into smaller groups in order to find spots from which to shoot.

After the dip (about 12:30pm) we’ll head to a bar. (Firkin on the Bay, 68 Marine Parade Drive – confirmed)

There’s no walk planned after lunch; we usually sit around and chat for most of the afternoon.
