VSDC Rafting Adventure


Join VSDC and vegan meetup friends for an exciting rafting adventure on the Potomac River.  Last year's event sold out so sign up NOW! 

The total price per person is $63.00 for VSDC members (you must have a valid VSDC membership card) or $68.00 for all others.  This rate includes the entrance fee to the park, the bus transport to Great Falls VA, the trafting trip between Great Falls VA and Carderock MD, and a vegan lunch (and also the paypal fee).  The price does not include gratuities ($5 is suggested per person) to the guides.  The trip is fully managed by an experienced rafting company and each attendee will have to sign a waiver / disclaimer.  The event is rain or shine (you may get wet in any case) and should conclude by early afternoon.

You must pay via paypal to reserve each spot and you will be prompted when you RSVP.  Please plan to arrive by 9 am in Carderock Park (the bus taking us to the rafts in Great Falls VA leaves exactly at 930 am).

Please note:

- No refunds but can make name changes.

- Minimum age is 10. 

- Pick up and drop off location are subject to change, depending on the weather.

    Message from Cam:

    Great meeting everyone - what a fab time we had!! A big thanks to Donna, Saurabh, Scott and guides!! Several of us talked about Reel and Meal and Poplar Spring - so I wanted to provided the links:

    For those of you who may be interested in the monthly (vegan) Reel and Meal at the New Deal Cafe event in Greenbelt,
    please visit http://www.newdealcafe.com/events/reelAndMeal. It's every third Monday of the month - tonight we
    are screening The Naked Option, about women in Nigeria peacefully protesting Shell & Chevron.

    To check out upcoming events at Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary, go to: http://www.animalsanctuary.org.
    This is one of the most beautiful places ever - you will love the many incredible animals making Poplar Spring their permanent
    home. The Saturday before Thanksgiving at the sanctuary is the greatest vegan potluck imaginable!!

    Thanks to all for such a fun, memorable day!!
    Hope to see you again!!

    Best! Cam
