NBR White Water Rafting Trip

When: Saturday July 26, 2014
Where: LeHigh River, (Near White Haven, Pa)

Cost: Total = ~$100.00 (Rafting = $65.00 Transportation = ~$35)

**Sign up before July 11, 2014 @ 9AM**

Please add your name to the list if you are interested: here

The NBR social group is organizing a day trip to the LeHigh River for a day of white water rafting. July 26 is a dam release day so we can expect class 2 & 3 rapids.  It will be fun and exciting, but will not be too dangerous or technical.

The plan is to rent 15 passenger vans and leave Williamsburg early Saturday morning. Depending on our launch time (between 8 & 11) we would need to leave around 5:30AM.  The ride from Williamsburg is ~2.5 hours.

Please respond by Friday July, 11 at 9AM. We will be making the reservation that afternoon so if you haven’t signed up by then you may not be able to join us.  Once everyone has signed up, we will have a better idea of the per person cost.


Final call: for the white water rafting trip on July 26. We have had a few stragglers so it’s not too late. by Friday if you are interested and I will add you to the reservation count. We already have 13 ppl going! Check out the original post for details.
