Whitewater Rafting (with Philly Adventure group)

Hey Lehigh Valley adventurers...I organize events for the GET OUT PHILLY adventure group and we have a few spots left for our Whitewater Rafting event on Saturday July 19th.  I thought I'd share it with you in case  you're interested.

Check out the details:

Are you ready for a fun day of whitewater rafting, water battles, and other water fun??


The Important stuff:

Cost: $80 Price INCLUDES lunch on the river and BBQ dinner at the WWC basecamp afterwards, along with all taxes and fees.  Wetsuits, which you probably don't need, are $12 extra at WWC.

You must pay via:  www.amazonpayments.com, select 'send money to' and enter my email address:  [masked]  if you need help doing this, email through meetup or at that address.  Or email me if you'd rather send a check.

RAIN OR SHINE.  NO REFUNDS AFTER JULY 5. (you can find a substitute though)

The fun stuff:

We've done this trip six years running now and we've had all kinds of people at all kinds of skill levels come out. This trip is fun for those that have never rafted before as it's fairly easy (we don't even have guides in each boat, they kayak along with us, since it's not very dangerous) but it's still fun for those that have been rafting because it's a chance to run your own boat and of course THERE ARE WATER BATTLES!!!    yes, there'll be LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of splashing.  If you don't like to get splashed, don't come. seriously. you'll ruin the fun for the rest of us if you complain.  (this has happened in the past and we're not dealing with it.)  We're on the river...its water...its wet...you'll get wet.  it happens.  SMILE when it does!

Lunch and dinner is provided. bring: sunscreen, bottled water, water guns, waterproof cameras, water shoes or old sneakers (yes, you need to have something that ties to your feet, no flip flops),  a towel and change of clothes for afterwards (they do have showers at the base camp).

Carpooling is encouraged.

    for those that aren't camping and are looking for me when you arrive to raft, I'll be wearing a white tank top with a big red MEETUP sign printed on it - front and back so you can't miss it :)

    ok so I only heard from 1 person about special lunch needs which means all of you are either ok with the standard, or didn't get my email. if you didn't get the big email, please email me ASAP

    I've sent a detailed email to those rafting. Please make sure to check your email and read it all. If you do not see it, check your spam box. If you still do not see it, email me directly.

      I did not get the detailed email. Not in my spam either.

    • Gary

      I just sent it to you specifically this time. please check.

    we have 66 people rafting. Since the bulk of people are from the GET OUT PHILLY group, when you arrive, look for general meetup signs, but if you're asking around at all, ask about that group since WWC won't know about the Greater Lehigh Valley group by name.

    More details to follow this weekend (make sure to check your email), but for now: Lunch will be a 'box lunch' of Turkey breast on Kaiser Roll with a bag of Pretzels, desert (probably a cookie) and beverage (choice of soda or water). Dinner buffets include items like BBQ chicken, hamburger, hot dogs, broccoli rice almondine, baked potatoes, vegetables, chips, dessert and beverage.

    remember RSVPs close at the end of the day July 4th so if you want to get in on the fun, make sure to do it this week. I won't be able to add you after the 5th. We've got a full boat! (so to speak)
