Road Trip: Tulip Festival and Outlet shopping

  • April 13, 2013 · 7:00 AM

***we will postpone the trip to April 13.  If you cannot make the trip anymore, please send me a message and I will arrange a time to refund your deposit. For those who are interested to join, please RSVP onto the waiting list. ***

The added bonus for April 13 is that there will be a wine festival AND a parade.

Here's the detail itinerary for our trip:

 

7am or at Driver's discretion: Pick up from convenient location

10am: Meet at Bellis Fair Food Court.  We will distribute Walkie Talkies to the drivers so we know where to go

11am: Tulip Festival (Details TBA)

1pm: Lunch and Bubble Tea :)

3pm:  Seattle Premium Outlet

7pm: Wonderful Buffet

10pm: Return home

 

Cost: ~$50

Note: The deposit I receive between now and the trip, I will return to you the day of the event.  This is to show commitment to the event.

We are looking for drivers / cars -So far we only have 2 cars available.  For an incentive and token of appreciation, we will be providing gas money at $60/car, and will only be split amongst the passengers (drivers don't pay for gas).

 

You can pay your deposit to me or one of the assistant organizers at the events between now and then.  Once I have received the deposit, I will put you on the YES list.  I'll make sure you sign a waiver form if you haven't already done so before you get on the trip.

Finally, hopefully weather is good - but in case that the weather is not good, or that the flower is not in full bloom, we will have to postpone it to the next weekend, April 13.  In that case, we will offer full refund to the deposit IF YOU CANNOT MAKE it.

 

Thanks, and I look forward to a great trip! :)

 

Humphrey

      I got confused by Wendy's comment and I thought the date was pushed! I couldn't see that well last night because my eyes was still hurting from the sun on Sat.

  • Chris

    March 25, 2013

  • Ted

    Can I drive there and meet you up?

    March 24, 2013

    • Humphrey

      I will have a loose itinerary up - I will not wait for people who do not sign up in my group as I am not responsible. I also don't intend to receive text messages or emails when I'm in the States unless it's emergency within people who signed up in the carpool.

    Why do we need deposits?We just need a few cars and carpools.

    March 25, 2013

    • Humphrey

      The deposit is to show that you are committed to the trip - I can't afford people who said they are driving but they changed last minute stranding 3 passengers. Equally I don't want to let passengers dropping out last minute which makes the gas price much more than the driver and other passengers.
