Looking to see who would be interested in floating down the river a bit at Amerson Park on the 19th?

So what time?  Like I said, we have never been and I have no idea what we need to do other than bring a tube.

Floating from one end of Anderson to the other end usually takes an hour or two just depending on how fast the river is moving. Bring a tube, sunscreen, and beer. One group parks at the canoe launch, and one group parks at the pavilion. Everyone gets in the river at the canoe launch, and comes out at the pavilions. If that's not long enough for you, the dames ferry to popes ferry float is 5-8 hours depending on how fast the river is moving. It's only about 10-15 more minutes up riverside drive

Just a heads up, I've been using the same tubes I got from academy forever ago. They're only like $20-$30

Kenneth, 

Are you going to be at the meeting Thursday?  Since you have more experience with tubing the river, can you help me put this together?
