Hello SAYAA members!
Summer is about to get even better with our next social event which will be river tubing!
I know this is a long description, but please make sure to read through all these details as there is very important information here that everyone needs to know.
About river tubing
Splash and play through some small rapids before beginning your leisurely float down the river on a water-ring-tube. Dropping over shallow ledges along the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, you are sure to enjoy this mellow and beautiful stretch of river. The tube trip is 1-2 hours long depending on water levels.

You don't have to be able to swim, but you do need to be comfortable in the water.
Tickets for this event cost $25 for members and $30 for guests. It includes a quality tube with or w/o a seat bottom, a life vest rental, shuttle service for the tubing trips and lunch. The deadline to purchase tickets is Sunday July 7th, after which the costs will increase as tickets will be purchased separately.
If there are any extras that you want eg cooler rentals, when you make your payment to us, please let us know, and pay the full amount for the extras. More info about extras > http://www.rivertrail.com/tubing-shenandoah-river.php

We will be carpooling to and from the location, so please may each of you let us know (in comments below and when you make your payment) if you need a ride, or if you can provide a ride and for how many. It is not mandatory, but if you want to carpool we kindly ask that you let us arrange it so that there is no confusion, and so that we have a more random mix of people in cars in the hope that new bonds will be formed!
We have the option to have our own BBQ, which would be pretty awesome, but we need 2 hings to make that possible:
At least 2 people who are good at and willing to BBQ some burgers and hotdogs Someone/people who will provide the grilling equipment All the food will be provided for the BBQ.
If we can't get what we need for the BBQ that's no problem, an alternative yet still delicious lunch will be provided!
What to bring
dry change of clothes towel suntan lotion glasses strap plenty of water- it's very important to be properly hydrated on your trip. *Please note you WILL get wet so wear clothes that are water appropriate, and you MUST wear shoes on the tubing trip that wil not slip off.
