JOC SNOWTUBING PARTY!

Theninth annual JOC snowtubing party will take place on Saturday night,Jan 24th at Ski Campgaw, only 35 minutes from the GW bridge.
Woo Hoo!
 
For this years trip, we are switching back toCampgaw, where there is a nice warm lodge right next to the tubinglanes. That way, if we go on the coldest night of the year, like we didlast year, we wont lose any fingers :)

This is always one of JOCs biggest and most fun events of the year. Whether you
are new and have been lurking on the list for a long time, or have been a
regular for a while, dont miss out on this fun event!

 
SCHEDULE

After Shabbat: Carpools depart from NYC and other locations 
7:30-8:00: Arrive at Ski Campgaw, receive snowtubing ticket.
8:00-9:55: Enjoy snowtubing!
9:55- 10:00: The annual JOC tradition of clothing optional snowtubing. Yeah, baby!!
10:30: We get kicked out.
 
Throughout the night, we will be ableto relax in their lodge which is right next to the tubing run, wherethere will be a light dinner (pita, spreads, veges, fruits etc...). All food, is, of course, strictly Kosher.

PRICE
Recession special! The price of the event is $29 which includes a 2 hour snowtubing session and light dinner. 
 
TRANSPORTATION
We will be getting there via carpool.A week prior, we will send out a spreadsheet of drivers, and you willbe responsible to make arrangement to get to Campgaw.
If there is demand, we will rent a busthat would leave from the Upper West Side, but a heads up that suchrides are expensive ($30 a person?)

WHAT IS THE TUBING LIKE?
The tubing largely depends on weather conditions.  Sometimes the course
is fast and icy, other times it is more slushy (which makes for great
snowball conditions). In past years, it has been quite an adrenaline rush, but there are no guarantees. 
Either way, youll have a great time!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Expect cold weather, my friends! Layer up with a shirt (synthetic is best), a sweater (fleece) and a warm jacket. Ifyou have ski pants, thats your best bet for your lowerhalf. Non-cotton socks are best for your feet, and dont forget gloves,and a warm hat. A neck gaiter is a nice plus. Skirts are doable.

If you have reason tobelieve that I, or other mischievous folk, will be tripping you frombehind with tubes, then wear butt pads :)

IS THIS FOR SINGLES ONLY?
No! JOC is an outdoors club open to all, although, a vast majority of
attendees will be single.
 
WHAT IS THE DEADLINE?
Spaceis allotted on a first come, first served basis. There are 125 spotsavailable, and I expect that we will fill up. As we have purchasedevery available ticket for that session, there is no possibility forlast minute add-ons once we are full.

 
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
1) Please go to www.jocsnowtubing.eventbrite.com and fill out the form.
 
 AND

2) Paypal the amount ($29) to
jewishoutdoorsclub@yahoo.com

I can only sign you up once I have received payment -registration alone is not sufficient.
 
Also, please note that this cost does not include paying drivers. The amount that JOC recommends is $10 a person.


CANCELLATION POLICY?
Cancellations will be accepted up till January 15th  for a full refund.  After that, I cannot offer a refund,
but you can find someone else to take your place and deal with the
reimbursement on your own with that person.

 
BAD WEATHER?
Please note that in the event of inclement weather, the trip is postponed to
a future date to be decided. Please check emails if it seems like a possibility.
 

Happy New Year to all, and looking forward to seeing you on the slopes!
