We will be going through all the biking trails first thing at 10 am and then eating lunch at noon. We will be doing a bible study directly after lunch. The beach area is supervised and very clean and will be open to anyone who wishes to get in the water after lunch or they can go fishing. We will stay at the park until around 7:30 pm so we will have a full day to really enjoy the park. We welcome EVERYONE to join us on this trip and we really hope to have everyone from the church be able to attend. (Don’t forget to ask off work ahead of time!)

“Six Flags Over Texas – Arlington, TX”
July 21st The big trip of the year! We will be taking the bus on this trip as well to Six Flags. They have multiple rides and shows for all ages. We are going to need lots of chaperones on this trip and REALLY hope the parents will be able to participate this year in coming. The park opens at 10:30 AM and we will arrive at the gate by 9:30-9:45 to get through the gates first. We will not be leaving until 10:00 PM so if you want to leave earlier then plan on driving.
Transportation: We will be leaving at 8:00 AM (sharp) from the church and you need to be at there at 7:30 AM and ready to go. We are pulling out at 8 o’ clock and if you’re not there then you’ll have to drive to the park (trying to keep forty kids on a bus not going anywhere is crazy!). We will be taking the bus and probably TWO – 15 passenger vans to get everyone there. We are going to need a couple of drivers as well. The kids from ages 3-17 will get priority in the bus to keep them all together. If you would like to bring your kids in your vehicle and meet us at the gate you are welcome to but PLEASE let me know ahead of time so we can find you. If you are planning on attending we ask you get a t-shirt so we can locate your children if they decide to go with a particular group.
FEES: Children ages 2 and under are free at the park. Ages 3-17 will be paid for by your donations and fund raisers. Everyone else will be required to pay their own fee. If you would like to get the group rate of $24.50 per ticket you MUST have your money into Kim Neptune (church secretary) by 06-30-2010 because we will be purchasing the tickets by the 07-05-10 to receive the $24.50 price vs. $26.99 per ticket. You may purchase your tickets at the gate on the morning of the trip at the regular price or whatever price you can get if you find a coupon.
Attire: Again, make sure you bring sun block SPF 35+. We want to make sure all the kiddos have the Summer T-Shirts on so we can keep everyone in the groups together.
