    I'm so sorry I was sick with a cold and couldn't stay for the fun. I hope everyone had a good time, despite the chilly temps. 23 people came out from all the meetup groups! A big thanks to all who braved the snowstorm and still participated. Hope to see you at another event soon!

      I'll be wearing a turquoise blue ski jacket with a black furry headband, with pink Mardi Gras beads and a Meetup tag. There will be beads for all to distinguish us from the crowd and help us find each other during the evening.

      Hi Patricia, thanks but I don't have your name on the payment list. So RSVPing "No" doesn't change the number of tickets available. Rsvping, doesn't save your spot, only paying for a ticket does. There are currently 5 tix left. Hope to see you another time soon!

    3 tickets left for this event. Don't miss the fun! Just click the WePay link to buy your ticket, then call or text me and you will be moved off the Waitlist [masked]

    Ok, this event is now rescheduled- for hopefully the LAST time! ;D Mark your calendar for SATURDAY MARCH 1, 5:30p-7:30p and keep your fingers crossed for pleasant evening temps. This polar vortex thing has been ridiculous! Hope many of you can still make it, if not please change your RSVP and call or text me for a refund [masked]-7555. Watch for an email with updated post for the new date. Thank you all for being so flexible and understanding, sincere apologies for any disappointment or inconvenience.

    February 5, 2014

  • Robin T

    Oh, NO, not again!! The forecast for Sunday is only 23 degrees, with a nighttime low of -2. Unfortunately after sunset the temp will start dropping. If the forecast does not improve by Friday we will either make it earlier in the afternoon(maybe 2p-4p) or reschedule for Sat. Mar 1. Keep checking back for an updated post. I would be very disappointed too, but being outdoors for 2hrs in bitter cold would not be fun for anyone. This winter has been exceptionally chilly, and made it difficult to plan. If the new time or date doesn't work out for you, you would receive a refund. And you are welcome to post here if you want to go regardless, and arrange for others to meet you.

    FRIENDS, you must pay for a ticket in advance in order to not be on the Waitlist. There are 3 tix left. Just click the WePay link in the post. Once you pay, you will be moved to the reg list. Call or text for any questions[masked]

    Due to a wind chill advisory and gusting winds already blowing near Villa Olivia, this event is being rescheduled for Sunday Feb 9. Sincere apologies, we're disappointed too but it just would not be enjoyable. If you still would like to go, the tubing hill is not crowded and you would probably get a tube right away. Post here so you can arrange to meet with anyone else who may want to brave the elements as well.

    If you cannot make it 2/9 and would like a refund, call or text me [masked]-7555. Thank you for understanding, hope to see you on 2/9.

    January 26, 2014

  • Robin T

    Although 26-22 degrees is not that bad, there are 30 mile/hr winds with snow showers in the forecast for this evening. Wind chill can make it feel much colder, especially on your face. Villa Olivia will allow us to reschedule for 2/9, we just have to make a definite decision by 2:30p. I'm also checking with the other Meetup groups coming with us, to decide by noon. Sorry for waffling, we just want what's best for most of the group.

    January 26, 2014

  • Robin T

    The forecast for tomorrow is 29 degrees with a nighttime low of -5. Unfortunately there is no way of knowing how soon after sunset the temp will start dropping. We will call Villa Olivia in the morning to see if we reschedule for Sunday Feb 9. Check back tomorrow at noon for an updated post. You can also call or text me.([masked]
    Sorry for any disappointment, but being outdoors for 2hrs in bitter cold would not be fun for anyone. If the new date doesn't work out for you, you would receive a refund.

    January 25, 2014

  • Robin T

    YAY!!! Updated forecast says 32 for Sunday, bitter cold is not coming until Monday. So the tubing is ON!
    This event is currently SOLD OUT, if you are interested in attending please RSVP to the Waitlist and call or text me. Also, if you bought a ticket but issues arise and you cannot attend, call or text me ASAP and we will try to sell your ticket to another member so you can be refunded[masked]-7555. Please make sure if you bought a ticket, that you have a ride.

    The plan to snow-tube is excellent, and it would ordinarily be a great adventure. Regrettably, however, the temperature for this Sunday is currently forecast to be a high of only 3°!

    January 21, 2014

  • Robin T

    The forecast for Sunday is a chilly 10 degrees with a nighttime low of -6. This may change, but if it does not this event may be rescheduled for Sunday Feb 9. Check back on Wed, for an updated post. Sorry for any disappointment, but being outdoors for 2hrs in bitter cold would not be fun for anyone. If the new date doesn't work out for you, you would receive a refund. Keep your fingers crossed!
