SO, unfortunately our ski trip was met with COVID and bad weather. The only available make up date was so late in the season we were not confident that the end of February (possibility of early warm Spring temps and even rain) would make a very good experience for skiers and snow boarders. SO, instead, this year we will be taking a TUBING DAY TRIP to the NC mountains! HAWKS NEST is just outside of BOONE, NC and it is known as one of the best tubing parks in the Southeast US! We have a 2-hour tubing session reserved for Saturday, February 19 and will also eat lunch in downtown Boone! The cost will only be $50, which includes tubing and lunch, however – as always – if money is the deciding factor, please come with us! Rodney has scholarships available. (Just ask!)

This is a great trip to get to meet new people and connect with your current friends in a deeper way. SO, bring phones IF you need them, but be ready to PUT THEM DOWN & INTERACT with others and PARTICIPATE in the activities too!
ANYTHING THAT YOU DON’T WANT LOST or STOLEN
OK, not everything you bring with you will be stolen, and we have had very little trouble in the past, but any bags that are kept in the lodge may NOT be monitored at all times, so the possibility is present for things to be stolen, misplaced or lost. Our suggestion is to keep valuables with you or in the vans at all times!
ANYTHING ILLEGAL, IMMORAL OR INAPPROPRIATE
This should go without saying, but this is a church-sponsored trip and we expect participants to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner. This means that items such as drugs, alcohol, tobacco products, weapons, pornography, fireworks, (you get the general idea) should NOT be brought on this trip.
