Legends of the Jams

Bill Machotka & Randy Budd, our absolute rock star operators of the Clam & Coquina Jams, are hanging up their mics this year!  Make no doubt about it, we're sad, but these two professionals have put in more then their fair share of volunteer hours planning, organizing, setting up, running and breaking down our surf events.  We will forever be indebted to them for their service and contribution toward growing our community events!  As we approach our 12th Annual Coquina Jam, we'd love for some ladies to step up and volunteer!  If interested, please fill out the Coquina Jam Volunteer...
