The majority of Saturday will be "on your own".

Meat will be provided. Please bring a dish to share. We will also have a worship service on Saturday night.
We are planning to float on Sunday leaving from Ozark Outdoors at 10:00. We will do a 5 mile float. This should take around 3-5 hours. This would allow time for anyone who wants to drive down Sunday morning to do so. (Leaving church at 8:00) Cost to float on Sunday is $17.50 per person with 2 people in a canoe. A child 12 or under can ride free in a canoe with 2 people. A raft is $22 per person on Sunday with children 7 & under free. Tubes are $20 per person. If anyone has their own canoes we can work out shuttling arrangements. (A Saturday float could also be arranged if someone wanted to float both days. Canoes are $23 on Saturday. Rafts are $33 on Saturday.)
