The fourth annual JOC snowtubing party is scheduled for Sunday Evening
29 at Mountain Creek, NJ. Yay!
We will leave the New York area by prearranged carpools and head to
NJ, about 1 hour from the GW Bridge, for a 2 hour snowtubing session
6:30- 8:30 pm. There, we will enjoy their snowtubing park, with
its 7 lanes
of varying speed runs. There will also be light
refreshments offered in the nearby lodge such as chips, beer, nash,
healthy stuff too. The cost of the trip is $25 which includes
tubes, food, and a great time, but not reimbursing drivers, which should
around $6 a person paid straight to your driver.
As usual, this is quite a deal - if you went on your own to Mountain
the cost of snowtubing for 2 hours would be $28 (and $5 more for beer
For three year's running, this event has filled up with 60-70 people
Don't be shut out of this year's event!
Here are all the details:
FROM WHERE/WHEN DO WE LEAVE?
Individuals will leave from the NY metro area at
varying times, arriving
before 6:30 pm when our session begins. When
you sign up, I will add your name to a spreadsheet. As the date
I will email to attendees a list of everyone coming and who has cars
leaving from where at what time. You will then arrange a ride
on your own.
This is how
we have run transportation for many past events with great success.
WHAT IS THE TUBING LIKE?
The tubing largely depends on weather conditions.
Last year, it was a
cold day, and icy runs made for a wild time. More slushy conditions
make the runs more tame, but make snowballs easier to make.
Either way, a good time is pretty much guaranteed!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
If you have ski pants, that's your best bet.
Otherwise, wear whatever
it is that is most resistant to water. Layer up since it will
cold, but if you get too cold, you can always take a break and go inside.
IS THIS FOR SINGLES ONLY?
Absolutely not. In past years, it has been predominantly
single, but I
hesitate to call this a singles event, if for no other reason, it is
stinky label to attach to a fun event open to all.
I like to think of it as a bunch of people who are getting together
WHAT IS THE DEADLINE?
I have no deadline per se, but I don't recommend
waiting too long
since the trip filled up in past years when JOC had half the number
members it now has.
