BeachBind 2020 Presenters


If you are still planning to attend in December, we want to remind you that all attendees, including staff and presenters, have been encouraged to make their own travel decisions, and as such, might choose not to attend in December - a decision that can be made at any time, even up until the day of travel.


As of now, we are expecting -EM- & Isean, knot_head, and iambic9 to attend, along with the new presenters below.  Subay has moved to May, and Tifereth is unfortuantely unable to attend due to travel restrictions, but has confimred she will present in May. Liquid has also moved to May for Covid reasons.


In addition, we are happy to announce new additions for December: SamJay and Zero-Gi (presenters and performers), Liquid, and Princess Yum Yum.




New resort Masks rule:  Per the resort rules, must be worn indoors and in the dining room and lobby, even when tying (but not when eating or drinking). Masks must be worn outdoors EXCEPT on the beach or while in a pool. Masks are encouraged at our beach tent, even when tying. 


Still Not Sure About December?

You can move to May!

Remember that you can still change from December to May with additional discounts and credits. Please contact Michelle at Tom's Trips for more information on your individual reservation.
