OT: Snow Tubing at Amesbury Sports Park

NOTE: Time moved. Details to be updated shortly.

It is cold out... but why not take advantage of the fun activities the cold has to offer us? This event will be to go snow tubing (similar to sleding) for three hours at Amesbury Sports Part at slightly before 3:30 PM (which means leaving around 2:25 PM). Due to the sunset being so early in the winter, will be aiming to be all ready to start at about 3:30 PM itself. They do have lights for when it gets dark and tubing into the sunset should be a neat experience!

Description of the place: "At Amesbury Sports Park, windswept passengers sail tubes down powdery pathways of packed snow dotting hillsides of varying steepness. The inclines boast double the number of lanes as last year, shortening wait times and decreasing the likelihood of traffic jams caused by flocks of roaming yodelers. Convenient conveyer belt lift tubes and tubees back to the top of the hill for repeat rides, and come night, twinkling lights erupt from the snowscape to guide frost-riders safely from top to bottom."

Cost: For the first 5 people other than myself, the cost will be $11 as I have a six person Groupon: http://www.groupon.com/deals/amesbury-sports-park-4 . For every additional person, the cost will be normal price, which is $24.

Transportation: If needed, I currently plan to rent a zip car and could take people with me from Kenmore station (I'd cover the cost). Otherwise if you have a car and can volunteer to ride share, please do so!

Food: The plan would be to get dinner after our adventure at some restaurant nearby.

 

Feel free to let me know if there is anything I left out!

    Hey Steven, is it possible to get in on the carpool for the way up? If so, where would we meet and at what time?

      Never mind. Just read the description more carefully and answered my own question. I'll see everyone at the park 2morrow at 3:30.

    Information: I have a zipcar I am renting at 2:00 PM at a nearby garage at 81 Park Drive 02215. I can meet people there or I can pick you up from a nearby meetup spot. Please let me know if you need a ride, and if so, what you might know in that area for me to pick you up at. Thanks!

    Hi All, I'm going to be late. I just found out I have to work this day until 3:30 in Malden. I can change at the branch and meet everyone there for the last 2 hours of the event. Sorry. :(
