PLEASE NOTE: This event is only open to those who have previously attended the NYC Debate meetup. If you're a new member, we look forward to welcoming you at our next regular monthly meetup in June.
Are you still getting over the long winter blues? As a regular NYC Debate member, do you enjoy the spirited debates in a fun and friendly setting?
Join us for a day trip to the Governor's Island. This day-long event will include a scenic ferry ride (from Manhattan or Brooklyn), a picnic, and of course, copious rounds of debates and discussions!
This event is FREE -- however, each member is responsible for bringing their own lunch, snacks, and beverages. The cost of a ferry ride is $2 (round trip). For more info regarding the ferry service and schedule, click here (http://www.govisland.com/html/visit/directions.shtml).
Also, please note that this event is held during the Memorial Day weekend.
• Each member can bring up to two guests.
• Each member is encouraged to bring a debate topic.
• Pets are NOT permitted on the Island.
