This is the first outdoor concert of the season at the Deer Valley Music Festival -- a Utah summer experience not to be missed! The performance features jazz trumpeter Chris Botti with the Utah Symphony. More information: https://deervalleymusicfestival.org/event/id/22758/ The show starts at 7:30; doors open at 5:30. We'll plan to arrive early and picnic on the lawn before the concert. We'll be coordinating a carpool from Salt Lake with a meeting time of 5:15, and there'll be an alternate meeting place at Deer Valley at 6:15. We'll also be coordinating contributions for a potluck picnic. Details will be sent to confirmed attendees. Tickets are $44 per person + $3 service fee. Once you confirm your attendance I'll message you with details about buying your ticket.
This will be a really fun afternoon of kayaking the Weber River as part of a guided tour, followed by dinner out in Park City (optional). The tour company uses inflatable kayaks, which are safer and easier to maneuver than traditional hard-shell river kayaks. The stretch of the river we'll be running has Class II+ rapids and is described as "fun, but not scary." Float time is about 2 hours. The tour company recommends that participants have intermediate kayaking skills or better. So this will not be a technical or super hardcore river run, but maybe not suitable if you've never been in a kayak before. Here's the trip we'll be doing (see the "Half-Day Guided Kayaking" section: https://www.destinationsports.com/river-kayaking.html?fh-u=9d9bc3d0-13cd-44bb-9ab5-1195dc0bb742 Meeting point is in the town of Henefer. We can arrange carpools from Salt Lake if desired. If we can get 6 people signed up and confirmed by June 13th, we can get a special group rate of $50 per person (in addition, be prepared to offer a cash gratuity of $15 to $20 to the guide ). I will be paying for the group's reservation, and each person will need to send me the $50 in advance (before June 13th) via PayPal, Venmo, Zelle, etc. - details will be sent after you RSVP that you're attending.
