Getaway Trips involve trips to exotic locales and exclusive resorts, as well as Viking river cruises and other special destinations.. For our beach bums or just sun-loving folks, we bring you bus or carpooling trips to the local beaches, whether for a long weekend or an entire week. For the more adventurous ones, we follow the sun and fly you to the warmer climates during our fall, winter or late spring months. In the last several years, we have run "Bike and Barge" trips to the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany. In April 2016 we offered a "Sun & Fun Getaway" to the All-Inclusive Club Med Resort at Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, jointly sponsored by our Tennis Program.
For 2017, we have three Getaway trips planned:
Club Med Columbus Isle - February 4-11, 2017 THIS TRIP IS COMPLETED
River/Water Events: Encompass various activities and sports on local lakes, streams, rivers and estuaries, including rafting, tubing, kayaking, canoeing, and water-skiing. In June 2014, we ran a rafting trip to the Grand Canyon.
Other Recreation: May involve such diverse activities as horseback riding, rollerblading, ice-skating and other recreational past-times, depending on the demands of our members and the willingness of our volunteers to organize, schedule and lead them. These types have not been active in the last few years. It would be neat if someone came forward to lead one of these.
Leaders Needed: Our Recreation Chair is Trixi Bicknell, a long-time member, tennis player, bike, and a very active adventure sports enthusiast. We have some really good events planned, but Trixi would like to talk to members interested in expanding the number of Recreation events, and/or becoming leaders in various events.
