River tubing

This is an idea for the summer months - there's currently a groupon for this, tubing down New River, north east of Charlotte.

Note from Tara (Please call to reserve):

So reservations have been made for June 15th. Please be at River Girl Fishing co by no later then 10:30, they put the tubes in the river at 11am but we will have to get the tubes and sign a waiver beforehand. They suggest bringing a pair of water shoes, water, and sunscreen. If anyone wants to rent a cooler tube, they are $15 each.

*Everyone going on this meetup needs to call and add their name to the list, esp if you have a groupon. The reservation is under my name and under the meetup group. The number is (336) 877-3099.*

      I'll meet at Roses at 8am too. Probably don't want to take my car to Boone since the A/C isn't working, but I'm happy to chip in for gas.

    Hey guys I'm really sorry to do this but something came up and I'm not going to be able to make the trip. I believe there were only 4 people in the car pool not including me so hopefully you can squeeze into 1 car. I hope you all have a great time!

    I might already be up there but if not car pooling would be good. I know my way around. However my car pool people would need to be willing to hang out in boone for a bit afterwards

      Right now 10 am is sort of a suggested time, when we have a final count of how many want to go, we have to call the tubing co back and they will confirm our time, so it may be later, esp if we get a lot of people
