Great River Adventure: Family Float Trip
Sunday, September 20, 2015 starting at 12 noon.
This year SRTA and the GRA committee are planning something again for fun and fellowship. First it will be in the last day of summer, on a Sunday, and focusing on getting families, kids to grands, out on the river for a safe easy-going float trip. Second, we will finish the event with a covered dish social picnic at the Margerum Family pavilion ½ mile north of Millersburg just off Rt. 147. SRTA will supply the plates, cutlery, beverages, and the hot dogs / hamburgers. We are also asking each family unit to bring a covered dish, salad, or dessert to share with the group. The cost is $10 per person to cover the shuttle bus and the insurance. SRTA current members may take a $5 discount. We really want to get the kids with their families out on the river.
The plan is to meet at 12-noon at Margerum’s. See the map linked below. We will have GRA signs out on Rt. 147. We will park our cars there for the trip, unload our boats and gear, and leave the food in the cars or in the pavilion where there is refrigeration and electricity. The safety talk is at 12:45 and we will put in at 1 PM. The section of river is easy and beautiful with plenty to see and enjoy.
We will stop at Fort Halifax and be met by a bus to shuttle back to Margerum’s. SRTA will supply a person to watch the boats.
We will have our covered dish picnic dinner there, pack up, leave and pick up our boats and gear at Fort Halifax and be on our way home.
Please send in the Registration and Waiver Forms early to help us with planning.
We want everyone to participate, all generations but especially the kids so they can learn to appreciate what a phenomenal resource we have with the Susquehanna River. If you liked the Island Hopper, you will like this too. And if you were not an Island Hopper, give the Fall Family Float a try.
