Important reminder! You must also send an e-mail to [masked] to RSVP. Just clicking on RSVP here on this page will not officially RSVP you.
Get together with your paddling pals and meet some new ones, while we party away the mid-winter blues with this traditional blast. Newbies shouldn't even hesitate, as you'll find the group very warm and welcoming. And, you'll get to put the faces together with the names. You'll also meet the gang from Roads, Rivers and Trails, who are sponsors of the big bash.
The festivities launch 7:00 pm, Friday January 24th at Raffel's Catering, 10160 Reading Road in Evendale, conveniently located off I-75 and very easy to get to. Just exit at Glendale-Milford Road, head east to the first major intersection (Reading Road), turn right, go about a mile and look for the Raffel's sign (red print on white background) on the left.
Bring your DVDs of past Cincypaddlers events to reminisce (no instructional, etc. DVDs please – this is a party, not a workshop). We'll have a player and monitor. There will also be door prizes (get your free raffle ticket when you pay admission at the door). The prize drawing is at 8:00pm (pick up your ticket by 7:45). Finger food is provided; cash bar. Dress is paddler casual.
The admission for advanced RSVP is $15/person. Email me by 1/19 with your head count at [masked] with your head count (use this email, not a response on the board) and pay at the party . Mail it in if you don't show up, since we're ordering food based on your RSVP. Admission without advanced RSVP is $20, so save some dough by emailing early. Pay me at the party – don't mail it in (UNLESS YOU NO-SHOW, because we do order the food based upon RSVP count, so the admission is still due).
It's always the big party of the year and a whole lot of fun so don't miss out this year. RSVP by 1/19. Last year, we came close to the room capacity, so RSVP early to ensure there's a space available for you. Photos from last year's big event: http://tinyurl.com/m36hx9r
