9/28 · FRIDAY · JAMES RIVER TUBING TRIP & WELCOME PARTY
We love spending a few lazy hours floating down the river with a drink in our hand, spying Eastern box turtles, Great blue herons, or even the occasional Bald eagle on a nice warm day. Join us as we tube along one of Richmond's best features on the James River Tubing Trip for the 2018 GABMC!
10 AM · JAMES RIVER TUBING TRIP
River City Adventures
711 Hospital St #2A, Richmond, VA 23219
Time to enjoy central Virginia and relax like a Richmonder as we float on down the James River in a tube with an optional cooler of drinks and snacks. We’ll all meet up at River City Adventures at 10:00 AM to sign some paperwork and for a brief safety review. We’ll all follow the shuttle bus to our float finish point, park our cars there, then load up the bus as they take us and the tubes upstream.
After an afternoon of fun on the river, we’ll end up back where we parked, you’ll deflate your tube and give it to a designated League member and we’ll run those back to River City Adventures for you and you can head out to your next adventure around town.
It’s $30 for the tube + shuttle, and an extra $5 for a cooler tube. Since we’ll have to pay in advance for a group reservation, PayPal the money to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Tubing Trip" in the Notes field or use the ticket link below. That way you also don’t have to carry any cash on you day-of.
Don’t forget to bring sunblock, hats, drinks, and water shoes. They’ll provide transportation, personal flotation devices (PFDs), whitewater tubes (inflatable tubes with handles and cup holders), and cooler tubes (at an extra cost).

Sunday mornings in Richmond means Brunch! We'll all head to District 5 for their Brunch Buffet service starting at 10:30 for only $15.
