Fourth Annual Toboganning Trip at Pokagon State Park

This was a great trip the last three years!

We'll depart Ann Arbor somewhere around 2pm and head towards Angola, and check into the hotel. (a bit less than a 2 hour drive). We will head over to the Toboggan run around 4pm.

Take a virtual ride to see what it is like here:
Toboggan Run

We'll toboggan for 2 hours ($24/toboggan of which up to 4 people can share) We'll then head back to the hotel for a Pizza and Beer pool party at the Ramada Inn which has an excellent pool/fun room with ping pong tables etc. There is a nice Sauna at the hotel, so the evening festivities will include things such as Sauna Snow Angels, Water Volleyball, Ping Pong etc.

The hotel would be $28/person for the night and include Pizza on Saturday night at the Epic Pool Party ($21/person for the hotel and $7/person for Pizza).

On Sunday those that want to head right home can and the rest of us will head out either cross country skiing or snowshoeing at the State Park.

Room assignments will be made the night before, so if you want to share a room with someone specific, only want to stay with men or women, please say so in your RSVP and I'll do my best to accommodate.

If you just want to come for the Toboggan run and don't want to stay the night, send me a message and I'll update your RSVP. There are no refunds, but you can sell your spot if it ends up that you can't attend.

There is a $7 per car entrance fee to the park, so carpool to save a bit...(carpool spreadsheet)

NO REFUNDS ONCE PAID... YOU CAN SELL YOUR SPOT HOWEVER

    This was a blast. Thanks to everyone for being so cool. I had to leave way early Sunday and didn't get a chance to say bye to everyone. Sorry. I hope to see you all again soon! Special thanks to Jody for organizing this. A++

    Thanks to everyone from Liz and I for a great weekend! We had a blast meeting and hanging with everyone and driving with Brian and Colleen! Thanks to Jodie for doing a great job organizing. And whoever talked me into rolling around in the snow...I guess thanks to you too haha. See you guys soon!

  • Brian W.

    Solid event! Good times with Colleen, Paul, Liz, Robin, Terri, and many other members of the group! Though I think Robin will shank me this weekend at the Poker Night for what I caused during the Dominion game. I dare not speak of it, for I fear this will only rouse his bubbling rage within.

    February 24, 2013

    • Robin T.

      ...and yet speak of it you have... beware my wrath Brian, for it will come as does the weather in Michigan: unpredictably changing, and usually not for the better. Even when you think it's a beautiful day out and it can't get any better, that's when I'll put the hurt on

    Hi, I would like to come with a friend. If I only want to share the hotel room with my friend, do I have to book the room with the hotel separately? Thanks!

    If I only want to share a room with my friend, could I do that also or do I have to book the hotel ahead of the time?

    February 22, 2013

  • Lupita

    Rachel and I are riding together so, you And your friend can join us.

    February 22, 2013

  • Lupita

    Lois, I will be leaving from the Meijer parking lot At 12:00 pm ET

    The Meijer is located on Ann Arbor-saline road and Lohr road. By Target store and Kohls

    And, where is the departing spot at Ann Arbor please? If we want to meet at the State Park instead, whereabout should we wait for the group?

    February 22, 2013

    • Jody M

      At the hotel, address is above.

      February 22, 2013

  • Lupita

    If Jewel and Rachel ride with me, Im still having a room for another person. i will be leaving town at 12:00 PM We can meet at the Meijer parking lot that is located on Ann Arbor Saline Road by Target and Kohls stores
    ;-)

    February 21, 2013

    • Jewel M.

      I was just wondering...The carpool spot is right down the street and I know there won't be a problem with leaving a car there overnight, as opposed to having trouble with that from Meijers. You are staying overnight right. I'll ride with you either way, if it works out with my job.

      February 21, 2013

    • Alexis K

      Would you mind if I carpool with you as well? Are you planning on staying Sunday for snowshoeing/skiing if there's enough snow?

      February 22, 2013

  • Alexis K

    Sounds like a very unique trip! I don't care who I room with, though would prefer if at least 1 of them was a female.

    February 22, 2013

  • Colleen

    I'm planning on making a bit of a detour into Shipshawana (40 min west) on the way in. If anyone else has any desire to visit Amish country, let me know.

    February 18, 2013

    • Paul B.

      Sounds good Colleen. I also have access to a car that can fit 2 or maybe 3 more. I might also be willing to pay up for a larger rental car if it means fitting everyone. Again, I have myself and one other person. [masked]

      1 · February 21, 2013

    • Brian W.

      I concur with Paul; I will donate if necessary. I don't want to leave anybody out, except one person. You know, for the drama, tragedy, and pointing & laughing as we drive away.

      February 21, 2013

  • Robert M.

    I would love to meet your group for the Toboggan run only....see you there on Sat!

    February 21, 2013

  • Jewel M.

    Hi again Lupita. Are you leaving Ann Arbor at 2p and how do we pay?

    February 15, 2013

      February 15, 2013

    • Lupita

      February 21, 2013

    February 15, 2013

    • Lupita

    February 20, 2013

  • Brian W.

    My schedule loosened up some, so I can now let us grace each other with our presences.

    I do not care who I room with. Male, female, bear, whatever. Just make sure they are not into axe murdering. I don't want a repeat of my last college spring break.

    February 20, 2013

  • Erin M.

    My guest and I would like to share a room with Amber and her guest. Thanks!

    January 21, 2013

    • Erin M.

      Also, Amber and her guest, myself and my guest and the +2 that will not be staying the night plan on carpooling straight to the State Park and then checking in to the hotel afterwards. Please let me know if this will be a problem=)

      January 21, 2013

    • Jody M

      No problem.

      February 20, 2013

  • Scott

    I live in Jackson and will drive from there, since it's already almost 1 hour west of Ann Arbor. I offer my services to anyone who'd doesn't want to drive the whole way, coming from Ann Arbor (or further east).

    February 18, 2013

  • Rudolph

    I will be there for the Toboggan run only whom do I notify?

      February 18, 2013

  • Lupita

    Oh I see that you may be riding with Erin.... Ok . I do have 3 seats available in my SUV....

    February 13, 2013

  • Kristina

    I'd love to go, but don't know anyone and will be that creepy girl who would like to carpool and share a room with someone if possible. I live in Ann Arbor and would like to stay the night to try snowshoeing on Sunday! I will confirm once plans are more solid ( :

    February 7, 2013

    • Erin M.

      No problem Kristina. How about we meet you at the Park & Ride off of 94 W exit 159 at noon. Then if you get a ride back from someone else, it will not be totally out of their way. I look forward to meeting you and I think that it is going to be a pretty spectacular weekend=)

      February 8, 2013

    • Jody M

      Kristina, I make the room assignments. Once you are paid, your spot is guaranteed.

      February 11, 2013

  • Erin M.

    There will be two of us staying the night and +2 for tobogganing only.

    January 21, 2013
