I would like remind everyone that our Happy Hours are held on the third Thursday of each month, unless otherwise specified. There will be no Happy Hour for the month of April, 2006, as it would conflict with the last day of Passover.
NOTE TO NEW MEMBERS: If you are new to TYJP, please contact the host of the event or send a note to [EMAIL PROTECTED] (tyjp at rtpnet.org), so we can look out for you. We would like to ensure your first event is a pleasant and warm experience.
Movie Night/Make Your Own Sundae:
Time: 7:00 PM
Join other TYJPers for an evening of movies. Watch your favorite (or possibly someone else's favorite) movie(s) on Mike's 53", widescreen TV, complete with awesome surround sound. While we watch the movie(s), we will also partake in making our own ice cream sundaes! The only thing missing will be the "sticky floor", bubble gum under the chairs, and crying babies (Mike hopes it stays that way!) For those who do not wish to consume the ice cream, popcorn will be provided. Soft drinks will also be provided.
This is an RSVP event, so please e-mail Mike at [EMAIL PROTECTED] by April 28. Due to the limited space available in Mike's living room, only the first 12-15 RSVPs will be accepted.
If you own your favorite DVD (or VHS tape), please indicate it in your RSVP. A list of available movies, including those submitted by others, will be sent to those who RSVP. You will then pick your first, second, and third choices; a final tally will be made before the event. We will then watch the "People's Choice" movie(s). By the way, if we have to rent a movie or two, that's fine, too!
Bring your favorite ice cream sundae toppings to share. Basic flavors of ice cream will be provided (vanilla and chocolate); if you want another flavor, please feel free to bring it.
If you don't want either the ice cream or popcorn, please feel free to bring your own favorite movie snack..
If you have any questions, please contact Mike at [EMAIL PROTECTED].
Note: At this time, we have eight (8) RSVPs.
Spring White Water Rafting Trip:
Michael C. has made the initial reservations for this White Water rafting trip. The details are below.
"The Nolichucky -- sometimes roaring and surging, other times serene and playful, but always beautiful. The slopes of Mount Mitchell, the highest mountain in the East, are where the main tributaries begin. Then the river turns west and forces its way through the spine-like ridge of the Unaka Mountains that form the boarder between North Carolina and Tennessee. The gorge is lined with towering cliffs above the rapids, the steep mountainsides covered with hardwood forest and the banks lined with flowering laurel and rhododendron."
The Day trip is eight and one half miles of breathtaking scenery with over twenty-five "adventure" class rapids throughout the heart of the deepest river gorge in the East; it also includes lunch.
The current plan is to camp at an adjoining camp site to the rafting outfitters (they are unrelated). We plan to arrive sometime Saturday afternoon, set camp, play in the water (if people want), and then cook dinner over an open camp fire. Sunday we will get up, eat breakfast, and then walk over to the outfitters; we should be getting off the river in the middle to later part of the afternoon. We then plan to cook dinner again over another camp fire.
Please RSVP with the outfitter, USA Raft, as soon as possible, as there are only four (4) openings left for the 10:00 AM trip. You will need the reservation number, OD0138 (that is, the first two characters are the letters, "o" and "d", the rest are numerals); the RSVP is under Michael Cohen. The cost of the rafting is $67.95 plus tax, which includes lunch on Sunday. The cost of camping is $12 for Saturday night and $9.00 for Sunday night, to be paid when we arrive. Please contact Michael ([EMAIL PROTECTED]) once you have RSVPed with the rafting outfitter, so he can plan the carpools. DO NOT WAIT! RSVP NOW as the spaces are running out fast!
Note: If you plan to join us in September for the Gauley River Trip, this is an excellent trip to get your feet wet if you haven't been white water rafting before, or you haven't been rafting for a long time.
