|A former member||
Ok, as long as the weather cooperates this time and we do not get any more heavy rains, this should be a GO.
See you there!
What: A Day Trip Whitewater Tubing in Harper's Ferry
When: Sunday, June 22, 11:00 AM
Meeting Description: Let's get on a bus and head out to Harper's Ferry for some fun in the sun!
The school bus will pick us up in the North Parking area near Kiss-N-Ride at the Vienna Metro Station. (there is plenty of free parking there for the non-metro folks) For those of you who are directionally challenged NORTH is to the LEFT when you are getting off the escalators inside the metro station
Cost: Only $45 and includes the upgraded PVC (vinyl) GOOD tubes, life vests, "cooler tubes", and roundtrip transportation.
Bring Your Own: Coolers, lunches, towels, sunscreen, etc. (note: the bus is BYOB) Payment - To pay, and reserve your seat, click here (don't forget to write Meetup) in the comments.
What to wear: swimsuits or anything you don't mind getting wet!
11:00 am - check in at the bus and we head to Harpers Ferry (no "Wheels on the Bus" songs allowed!)
11:15 am - bus departs (ALL ABOARD!!!)
12:45 pm - arrive at Tubing location, check in and head to the water
1:15 pm - we should be IN the water (the length of time we spend on the water depends on if we stop for swimming or lunch, etc.)
4:00 pm - out of the water and heading back homeward bound...
5:30 pm - back at Vienna metro
Dinner?...following our arrival back at Vienna, we can head to grab some dinner or go about our business, totally optional -- let's just play it by ear!
About the water...
The Whitewater trip passes by the historic town of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia where Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia come together. Enjoy the beauty of the Harpers Ferry water gap and Maryland and Loudon Heights while enjoying the exciting class I-III whitewater on the Potomac River (depending on water levels). The trip lasts 1-3 hours (about 2 hours on average).
We have the possibility of adding an ADDITIONAL pick-up spot at no extra charge so if there are a lot of us who live in another area (ie. Ashburn, Haymarket, etc.) we can add another stop there, so just e-mail me and if we have enough response we will add another stop, cool???
