Rafting / Camping weekend 2016

30 Jul

2016 raft, group



Our 11th annual rafting / camping was a great success again!

Friday night found everyone around campfires laughing, sharing stories, and making new friends until late in the evening as all great camping trips should start. Then Saturday morning after a light breakfast it was onto the buses and up to Skinners Falls with a few renditions of “the wheels on the bus go round and round” . . . . and more laughing and caring on. This year’s flotilla was 100 strong in rafts, canoes, kayaks, and even a couple of tubes, all with water guns and balloons at the ready . . . . . and lots more laughing and caring on!

After the float down the river, everyone pitched in to help setting up and preparing a fantastic barbeque. Luckily everything was cleaned up and put away before the rain started. And oh how it rained for a little while! So we all hung out in the pole barn still laughing and caring on (we are really good at that!) until the rain ended. Then it was time for Fly By Night to rock the house. Which of course lead to dancing . . . . and still even more laughing and caring on with friends, old and new.

After Sunday morning breakfast it was time to pack up another great annual weekend trip. Leaving with lots of new stories and fun memories and looking forward to next year’s rafting / camping weekend. Thank you Mark for running this awesome annual weekend for the club this year. And a special thank you to all the club members and friends of members that pitched in along the way to help Mark get the job done. Thank you also to Landers River Trips for hosting us again and Joe, Eric, and the guys from Fly By Night for making Saturday nights party off the charts great!

Be sure put next year’s rafting / camping weekend on your calendar early, July 7, 8, and 9, 2017. We’ll be back in Narrowsburg, NY . . . . . laughing, telling stories, and sharing more great times with all our friends.
