TYJP Day Beach Trip:
When:  Sunday, September 12, 2004
Time:  TBD
Where:  Wrightsville Beach, NC 
Summer's last hoorah!?! Join TYJP for a day of fun in the sun, surf, and sand at Wrightsville Beach. Bring your sand pails and other assorted beach accessories and don't forget your bathing suit or sunscreen.
Since Wrightsville Beach is approximately 2-2.5 hours from the Triangle, we will be attempting to set-up carpools from the various Triangle areas. Please RSVP with Gil Segal ([EMAIL PROTECTED]) by September 9 for this event, and please indicate:
1.       Where are you planning to come from (Raleigh, Cary, Durham, Chapel Hill, other)?
2.       Do you mind driving a carpool to Wrightsville Beach?
Rosh Hashanah Pot Luck Dinner:
When:  Thursday, September 16, 2004
Time:  3:00 PM/Dinner at 4:30 PM
Where:  Michael C.'s house in Cary (RSVP by September 12 for directions) 
Do you remember spending fun afternoons after going to shul, with family and friends celebrating Rosh Hashanah?  Will you be in the Triangle spending Rosh Hashanah separated from your family?  If so, join other TYJP'ers and celebrate the New Year at Michael C.'s house in Cary for a Pot-Luck Dinner!  Hors d'oeuvre will be served at 3:00; dinner should start around 4:30.
The theme:  "Old Family Recipes".  Please bring appetizers, a main or side dish, or a dessert, to share with others, which you remember from your childhood and you enjoyed.  There will be meat products served at this dinner, but vegetarian dishes will be welcomed as well.  Soft drinks will be provided; BYOB for alcoholic drinks.
Please RSVP to Michael C. ([EMAIL PROTECTED]) by September 12, 2004, and indicate what you are planning to bring.  Sorry, this is not the Superbowl party, so please do not ask if beer is an acceptable item to share; however, if you want it for yourself, feel free to bring it.
If you have any questions, please contact Michael ([EMAIL PROTECTED]). 
Dress/attire:  Casual - Pants and a nice shirt.
Bridge Day/Gauley White Water Rafting:
When:  Bridge Day Weekend, October 15th - 17th, 2004 (Fri - Sun)
Where:  Upper Gauley River, WV 
This promises to be a memorable weekend for anyone that hasn't been to Bridge Day weekend. The New River Gorge Bridge, which has the world's 2nd longest single arch steel span and at 876 feet above the New River is the 2nd highest bridge in this country, is closed one day a year for festivities, including several hundred base jumpers, music, theater, and arts and crafts. Bridge Day falls over peak fall foliage weekend, and the fall colors are as spectacular as the base jumpers' parachutes. This is also the last weekend of the year that the Summerville damn release will occur. What does that mean? Even more white water! The river will drop over 335 feet in less than 9 miles, with over 40 Class 3-5 rapids.
Please RSVP by September 18th to Michael C. ([EMAIL PROTECTED]) if you are definitely going to go on this trip. The cost for 2 nights of camping under the stars (Friday and Saturday), plus a continental breakfast before and a grilled lunch during the Upper Gauley Rafting trip on Sunday, is $116.24. It is highly recommended that you bring or rent a wetsuit, since the water temperature is expected to be around 53 F; the cost of renting a wetsuit is $15.
Michael has reserved a cabin for two nights at an additional $30/night; up to six people can fit in this cabin.  Those that wish to stay in the cabin instead of camping, will be charged extra based upon how many people stay in the cabin.  Please indicate which option you want in your RSVP (camping or cabin).  Please note, we only have one cabin reserved; the first six people to RSVP and opt for the cabin will be able to stay in the cabin.  Please RSVP as soon as possible, in case we need to get another cabin; they are going fast.
When you RSVP, you'll be sent the name/number of the outfitter to call, the group account #, and the exact cost of your trip. You'll then need to call the outfitter and charge the cost of your trip (possibly less any deposit that has already been put down to reserve your spot). Once we know how many people we have on the trip, we'll plan transportation/carpools and Friday departure times. We plan to arrive back in the Triangle around 9 pm Sunday. 
As a note of caution, this from one of the outfitter's websites: "Serious whitewater for serious paddlers. This section is for the brave and fearless among you. The Upper Gauley is continuous, big volume, gut-wrenching whitewater from start to finish. Due to the intense nature of this trip, prior rafting experience and the ability for self-rescue are highly recommended."
