Tubing on the Yellow Breeches Creek / Picnic lunch

One dollar per participant goes to Marie. @ York Outdoor Adventures

Five dollars per tube to Bob H  if you wish to rent tubes

 

Here it is..   the summer event you've all been waiting for !

Come beat the summer heat !

 

As we look at the weather forecast  rain and thunderstorms for Saturday

 

So...  lets push to SUNDAY and make it a little later.   MEET AT SIMPSON PARK  AT 11:00

 

 

This will be a BYOL event (bring your own lunch) My son Nathan is off to the Air Force so I won't have him to help out with the cookout and I thought its too much for "just me" to do. Therefore I will bring a bag of charcoal so anyone that wants can grill something, and a cooler full drinks, you bring something for you and something to share and we all eat and be happy.


This meetup event consists of floating down the yellow breeches creek just south of Mechanicsburg Pa for about 2 hours getting off the water and having a picnic lunch then possibly continuing down the creek another 2 or 3 hours if the water level permits.
THOSE COMING FROM THE YORK AREA AND LOOKING FOR THE SIMPLEST ROUTE. Take 83 NOTRH TO 581 WEST TO 15 SOUTH TO 114 SOUTH Strait thru 2 traffic lights l.. and its a couple hundred Yards.. on the left
As in past years, We'll meet at Simpson park, ( off south Market St. Rt 114 Past red light in Bowmansdale on left side ) and carpool to the covered bridge at Messiah College If water levels permit its possible we will continue to Lower Allen park or somewhere closer as there are several takeout points b4 Lower Allen. We can take a vote the day of and see who wants to continue further after lunch.

 


I will bring soda and water, $5.00 gets you a Tube and cold drink at lunch time.
If you need a tube I have about 100 tubes. I ask for $5 to use a tube so I can pay for the pavilion rental and recover some of my other costs. After we have 15 sign up I can confirm the pavilion rental with the park.


I will have my air compressor there to blow up my tubes and YOUR tube or floating devices the morning of.
It wouldn't be a bad idea to bring along a lawn chair the pavilion holds about 65..we may need more room under popup canopys.

    August 3, 2013

  • Jennifer

    1 of 3 tubes could be a smaller tube, I think.

    August 3, 2013

  • Kim

    How are we getting back to our cars from the take out point? Are we having lunch when we get to the take out point? Do we tow our lunch with our tubes? I appreciate any comments. I am unfamilair to the Yellow Breeches Creek.

    August 2, 2013

    • Bob H

      we park at the takeout and shuttle to the start and yes we have lunch at the takeout point

    Hi I would like to participate in this event, but would like to ask if there might be somebody who could kind of keep an eye out for me as I'm blind. I travel with a guide dog normally, but he would be too difficult to control from a tube. Feel free to email me at [masked] should you wish to contact me about special accomidations if any. Thanks and look forward to meeting the gang.

    August 2, 2013

  • Pamela S.

    August 1, 2013

  • Cindy

    Bob...how are we working the picnic lunch? We are just bringing what we are gonna eat? And how does the lunch follow us as we tube down...can we put beer in a cooler and bring it along? And then I assume we put the tube in and float down..so how do we get back to start?

    July 31, 2013

    • Bob H

      as for the food bring something you can share with everyone and if u want bring your own meat to grill

      July 31, 2013

    • Cindy

      Ok Thk u Bob.

      August 1, 2013

  • Bob H

    no need to put your tube request here .. when u rsvp it asks u how many tubes u want. and I take my tube count from that list

    1 · July 30, 2013

  • Mark D.

    Need 2 tubes. Looking forward to it!

    July 28, 2013

  • Bob H

    to change or update your tube count youcan do so by changing your rsvp to NO not attending, then re-rsvping yes with the correct number of tubes you need. By doing this I can keep a true total on how many are needed

    July 22, 2013

    • Cindy

      Bob..I changed my RSVP to 2 guests. But I'm unclear on the tube thing..does each tube hold one adult? If so then I will need 3 tubes!

      July 27, 2013

    • Bob H

      yes one per tube

      July 28, 2013

  • Cindy

  • Glenn B.

    I need one tube

    July 11, 2013

    • Bob H

      Glen its ok no big deal, you actually have to change the rsvp up or down for it to ask you the question then just change it back. I didn't know it wasnt asking the question. IF we reach record numbers , tube count will be a factor. Otherwise, no worries.

      July 11, 2013

  • Susan

    can people join the tubing at lunch time and get a tube then?

    July 8, 2013

    • Bob H

      Sure they can Susan no reason why not !
