Hooray!! Bye Bye!! Party--Dave & Busters, Final Fire

Jenn graduates May 17th from Otterbein after 3 long years of hard work earning her master's. Come help her take a big sigh of relief and celebrate with her! ...And we will be heading down to Chattanooga, TN, two days later. So this is a combination graduation party/ going away party. We would love a chance to see everyone before we hit the road, so come hang out and have a few drinks, eat some munchies and play some games! We're planning on a casual thing, mostly just taking over the bar at Dave and Busters for a few hours...nothing fancy.

After Dave & Busters we are having a fire, around 8.  Smores and that kind of thing. All are welcome.

    Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate and send us off. We will miss paddling with you and the bon fires in our backyard. We do plan on doing a couple of destination whitewater and camping trips to WV and TN this summer so I still hope to see you on the water. :)

    Jen & Kristin, you guys would make great realtors. You have a knack for finding the perfect house. Ohio's loss is Tennessee's gain.
    Good luck in all things

    So... Jenn & Kristin, I've known you both for 1.5 years after joining the River Rats. I'll miss you guys LOADS, and hope we'll still paddle together after your move to TN. My offer to host you guys in M'sia is always open.
    This is Not a Bye Bye/Farewell party but a get-together to 'send you off' to Tennessee :)

    • Rob

      If you leave Dave and Busters hungry its your fault.... besides every time I say I'm going to bring them something happens and I cant go. So no jinks this time frog legs.

    Sure wish I could make this party but I will be at a volleyball tournament all weekend with my 17 y.o. Daughter. Certainly I will see you two gals before you leave! But no more tubing when it is 10 degrees out...

    Heya, just wanted everyone to know that by popular request, we will be hosting a fire after Dave and Busters with friends and family. Smores provided, bring your own chair (ours may be packed) and we have some tequila and vodka we are trying to get rid of.

    I shed my precious tears whenever I think of you guys leaving. I hope to dry up my tear bank when this party starts. (I know Sandy cries too :) )
