What we're about

This group is about connecting with others and enjoying a variety of activities. We will do nature hikes, movies, dinners, festivals, canoeing, tubing, day trips, and so much more. Turn off your computer, put down your phone, go out in society and engage!

The group has a few rules. Please be sure to read them below and adhere to them.

1) If you RSVP "yes" three times and do not show up for the event, your membership will be terminated. In most cases, you can change your RSVP within 30 minutes prior to the start of the event without consequences. But for events where there is a defined deadline (time and/or date), that dealine is considered binding for this 3 strike rule.

2) You must have a photo of you shown on your profile.

3) There is a $2 annual fee for joining and it must be paid within 1 month of joining the group. This must be done in person so we can verify that you are the person in the profile. If you use some silly name or an alias, I don't care. But we have to be able to identify as the person in the profile at our events.

4) Finally, you must be courtesy and kind to your fellow members :-)

Let's Go to Silver Springs (kayak, canoe and/or glass bottom boat tour)

A couple of members have asked me to have an event at Silver Springs. So here it is. First before too many details, note you have to reserve your kayak or canoe (details below). We will meet at the boat launch area to the right of the main entrance (across the parking) at 8:45. I will stand at the edge of the parking lot but I think it is easy to see without my visual presence. If you want to car pool, say so in the discussion message area. Admission is $2 to the park. We will do the 2 hour kayak or canoe trip (The Loop - so no shuttles) launching at 9am. Prices for a single kayak is $20 but there are many other choices besides the average kayak. This includes life vest. It will be your responsisbility to reserve the boat but it is easy to do at their web site: http://www.silversprings.com/paddling/ Or, if you prefer, call them at (352)[masked]. After 2 hours on the water, we will have lunch. You can bring your picnic lunch or purchase it at the park cafe. After lunch we will take the 30 minute glass bottom boat tour. Tickets are 11 for adults or 10 for seniors. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you can join us! Silver Springs is very nice.
