For indoor rock climbing, we need a group of at least 10 people to get the group rate. With 10 people, it is $20 a person for two hours of climbing. Each additional person would be $15. If you are interested, email me back and we will see if we have 10 people willing to go at that price. This will most likely happen on a Friday evening or Saturday during the day in late March or early April.
For whitewater rafting: We found only one place open in the Poconos that is open on the weekend before finals week. It will be approximately $65 per person, which includes the raft and lifejackets. Since this is a higher ticket price, once we set a date, I will be asking for a $35 deposit from anyone interested in going on the whitewater rafting trip.
For Appalachian Trail hiking: This event is free, we just have to figure out transportation once we know how many people are interested. I’m going to set a tentative date of Saturday, April 25th for an AT hike . . . this will depend on the weather. However, we will be doing some local area hikes before then, probably on Saturdays and Sundays. If you are interested in hiking, particularly for the AT trip, make sure you have good, solid hiking boots and some type of backpack that can carry at least 32 oz of water (preferably more). As it will be cool in the mountains, you should also have some type of wind resistant jacket to take along.
Our next meeting is on Thursday, March 26th at 3:15 in Ruby Jones Hall where we will be making fruit and vegetable smoothies.
