The carpoolers will meet at the Reitz car loop at 10:15 AM. The cost is $25 per car, so we will have assigned cars before the event. Also, we ask you to bring $10 (one $5 bill and ones, preferably) in order to break up the cost of each car. We encourage you to bring lunch and water. There are no concessions at Bob’s River Place. Bring sunscreen. Most importantly, get ready for the last shabang before winter! RSVP here!
