I wrote this VERY quickly....quite possible I missed something very important...let me know!!!
Announcing a new Meetup for Triangle Scuba Group!
What: Ski Wintergreen
When: Friday, February 26,[masked]:00 PM
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
I'm thinking about a group trip to wintergreen. Second best to a big group trip to a great diving location. Visibility highly unlikely to be a downer, Guaranteed to be more crowded than any dive site you have been to(probably)...but lots of fun and great comraderie.
We will leave after work on friday carpooling as much as possible. Stay in the nicest place we can for the group size. I'd love to see 12-14(and find out we can get a 7bedroom place...they have some palaces up there!), but Josh and I are almost sure to go no matter what. Obviously a larger group could go if we have a huge response.
This is a short notice trip. You have to be prepared to get cash in my hand(unless I know you well I just can't afford to front the money and take the hit...if you don't go and you can fill your space obviously that's cool...as long as the roommate situation works). Couples are great because some of these places are only going to have one bed in a bedroom...pls indicate if you will be wanting to share a bed.
Please only RSVP yes if you are DEFINITE. Please indicate at what price point(for lodging and lift ticket) you will no longer be a yes so I can adjust when I make the call. I expect this to be in the $220-$280 range for a two night trip. Obviously you are welcome to come for only one night if you make your own arrangements for accomodations. Next tuesday Feb 16th at 7pm I will take the Yes count and call to make a tentative Reservation(I'm hoping I can pull that off) and get a final price. If you are a yes be prepared to grab a quick meal on Wed Feb 17th at Streets of Southpoint at 7pm to put the trip together. I may have to commit my money before that meeting based on your RSVP....please don't put me in the position of paying for a spot for you and then not show. If you want to go but can't make the dinner....call me and we can discuss how to make that happen[masked]).
If you are a beginner...Wintergreen has a great deal on learn to ski....if you are a competent diver you have a very high chance of being a skier after the weekend.
A lot of you have said you want a ski trip.....this is your chance to create a dynamic where we do a lot of different things this year.....white water rafting is definitely on the late spring agenda!
