The DART Board: 07.22.2013

By Peggy Roalf   Tuesday July 23, 2013

And the Winner Is:

Alan Fishleder, of Woodland, CA, was first to email the correct location of Brian Rea’s weekend surf fest at Point Mugu. He wrote:

This is fun!

By the looks of things, Brian's on the pathway leading from Pt. Mugu at Point Mugu State Park, Ventura County.  It's about 15 miles south of Oxnard at the edge of the Santa Monica Mountains.

For this, Alan will receive a copy of AP27 designed by Antonio de Luca.

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest—it was fun to read the various descriptions of the mostly correct answers. Stay tuned for the next regular Book Prize Contest—this Friday—plus a few more “celebrity events” coming up this summer, all on or at the water, of course!
