Tubing on the Yellow Breeches Creek / Picnic lunch

One dollar per participant goes to Marie. @ York Outdoor Adventures

Five dollars per tube to Bob H  if you wish to rent tubes

 

Here it is..   the summer event you've all been waiting for !

Come beat the summer heat !

 

this Event is scheduled for 2 saturdays in a row. come one saturday  or both. IN CASE OF RAIN THE DAY OF  WE WILL PUSH TO THE SUNDAY  ON THE SAME WEEKEND

 

This will be a BYOL event (bring your own lunch) My son Nathan is off to the Air Force so I won't have him to help out with the cookout and I thought its too much for "just me" to do. Therefore I will bring a bag of charcoal so anyone that wants can grill something, and a cooler full drinks, you bring something for you and something to share and we all eat and be happy.


This meetup event consists of floating down the yellow breeches creek just south of Mechanicsburg Pa for about 2 hours getting off the water and having a picnic lunch then possibly continuing down the creek another 2 or 3 hours if the water level permits.
THOSE COMING FROM THE YORK AREA AND LOOKING FOR THE SIMPLEST ROUTE. Take 83 NOTRH TO 581 WEST TO 15 SOUTH TO 114 SOUTH Strait thru 2 traffic lights l.. and its a couple hundred Yards.. on the left
As in past years, We'll meet at Simpson park, ( off south Market St. Rt 114 Past red light in Bowmansdale on left side ) and carpool to the covered bridge at Messiah College If water levels permit its possible we will continue to Lower Allen park or somewhere closer as there are several takeout points b4 Lower Allen. We can take a vote the day of and see who wants to continue further after lunch.

 


I will bring soda and water, $5.00 gets you a Tube and cold drink at lunch time.
If you need a tube I have about 100 tubes. I ask for $5 to use a tube so I can pay for the pavilion rental and recover some of my other costs. After we have 15 sign up I can confirm the pavilion rental with the park.


I will have my air compressor there to blow up my tubes and YOUR tube or floating devices the morning of.
It wouldn't be a bad idea to bring along a lawn chair the pavilion holds about 65..we may need more room under popup canopys.

    Great day on the Breeches. Everyone missed the RAINY stretch from Simpson to Lower Allen, except a few hardy souls. Still a GREAT time on the water, and we didn't even get struck by lightning. Awesome job puting this all together BOB! Thank You!

    It was a beautiful day, a scenic creek and great company, kids and adults all coming out to enjoy the great outdoors. It brought back the long forgotten memory of summer fun. I had great time. I only wish the water could be a little warmer for the tubers. Thank you to Heather, Todd, and Alina for the help of carrying my gears and the ride. Thank you to Sue for the grapes - I kept them for dinner and they were great :-). Heather, I enjoyed the conversation on Hershey R&D and the legacy of Milton Hershey. And thank you to Bob for putting this together. Take care all. John

    Even though I could not tube, at least I got to see what it was like. I had a good time meeting up with some old acquaintances. It beat sitting around home alone with my ankle aching.... minus a half star for the bathrooms but that was not Bob's fault.

    I'm sorry to bother, I just want to make sure I understand the plans.. Where we meet we will leave our cars & food.. and then shuttle north and tube back to where our cars/food are and then possibly continue tubing further south where shuttle will take us back to cars/food to maybe have another cookout and then say our goodbyes?

    Hi. Is it absolutely necessary to arrive at8:30? The temperature isn't looking to be that warm that early in the morning.

    July 25, 2013

    • Bob H

      I am anticipating getting on the water by 9:30 we will have check-in and shuttle and inflation of personal tubes/ inflatables and goup photo all b4 we get on the water.

      Hi Debbie...can you bring the portable air compressor for me? We just moved and cant find ours...thanks!!! We will be there around 8:45am... I believe they are taking off around 9:30am...hope it doesn't rain. Forecast says 50% chance after 11am.

    I have a double raft, can I bring that instead of a tube? This looks like so much fun.

    July 26, 2013

    Just got off work, found out we have mandatory overtime tomorrow and being a supervisor in my department can't get off, sorry last minute hopefully next week back to normal??

  • John

    Heather, That is a good idea. After kayaking, I will bring you back to drop-in to retrieve your car. Also, since my car will be stationed at the Park where the group will have lunch on Sat, you are welcome to leave your lunch cooler in my car if you like. John

    July 26, 2013

    • Heather G.

      Thank you! We have the kayak carriers on the car. My husband, Todd, and Alaina will be with me. See you at Simpson Park.

    Heather, Thank you very much for the offering of ride! It appears that the put-in is at messiah college. I could go there 1st to drop off my kayak, drive to the pull-out, leave my car there and get a ride from you at pull-out to get back to messiah to join the group. Or, meet you at pull-out, leave my car there, transport my kayak to your car, and then get a ride from you to join the group, and unload my kayak after joining the group at put-in at messiah college. Or I can work with any other arrangements you might have in mind. And I can meet you at the location of your choice at the time convenient for you. And after kayaking, I can give you a ride to retrieve your car as well.

    Thanks again for the offering. John

    July 21, 2013

    • Heather G.

      John, when we meet as a group at the picnic point/Simpson Park, lets move your kayak to my car. Do you mind if your car stays at the picnic point and my car goes to the drop-in point?

    July 23, 2013

  • Bob H

    anyone wishing to change thier tube count can do so by changing thier rsvp to NO not attending, then re-rsvping yes with the correct number of tubes they need. By doing this I can keep a true total on how many are needed

    July 22, 2013

  • Sue

    I justed added another person. Now I need two tubes

    July 22, 2013

    • Bob H

      Sue no problem yes I have enough tubes for you.

      July 22, 2013

      If there are child sized tubes- I will need at least 1, maybe 2 of those.

    Hi Bob. Just RSVPd for my family; 2 adults and 2 children. My boys can swim and one will need a child tube if you still have one available. We will bring a back up in case. Thank you and cant wait!

  • Tina S

    Hi, I need to cancel my reservation as I did not know that my husband had made "surprise" plans for the family next Sat. Ruined that surprise:-( . I hope to be on another tubing event, I find this site a great way to bring people together to do things at such a great price, keep Mellow on the Yellow!

    Just have to confirm with family 2 adults 1 child 3 tubes needed to rent

    July 21, 2013

  • John

    Would anyone be interested in kayaking instead of tubing? If so, we will need to work together, at minimum, to have one car at put-in and the other at pull-out. I'm in for now but will have to back out if no one else will be kayaking or if I can not get a ride to return to the location of put-in or pull out. Thanks. John

    July 14, 2013

    • Heather G.

      We have two kayak carriers and can take you to the put-in, John. Not sure if I'll kayak or tube.
