This year for the first time ever we have decided to change our annual Jetties trip into a Family Beach Trip. This trip will include swimming, sports on the beach, surf fishing, jetties fishing, pier fishing, pool time, volleyball, basketball, arcade time, a guest speaker, time at Broadway at the Beach, great food, and just an all around great family trip to the beach on a budget.
Friday: Everyone will drive down and meet at the chapel at 8:00PM. We will have pizza and drinks delivered to the chapel.
Saturday: Those who want to fish the jetties will leave an hour before sunrise and not be back until 5:00PM. Those who do not wish to fish the jetties are welcome to stay at the chapel, swim at the beach, shoot basketball, swim at the pool, etc. We will eat dinner at 7:00 and have a guest speaker at 8:00. After the speaker those who want will join us for ice cream (each person pays their own) and then a walk on the pier. Lights out by 11:30PM.
Sunday: We will gather for breakfast and then church at 11:00. After church we’ve been invited to a “pig picken” to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the chapel. Then we will have surf fishing, pier fishing, wiffleball, beach time, volleyball, basketball, and an assortment of other activities. Lunch will be on your own, and we will have dinner at 7:00 and our guest speaker again at 8:00. After the speaker CTO will provide a doughnut social before a walk on the beach for those interested. Lights out by 11:30PM. (Suggested to pack all you don’t need for Monday.)
Monday: We will eat breakfast and then all gather at the beach for one last prayer time and possibly a baptism or two. We will then dismiss and everyone is free to head home their own ways. We will mention that it’s important to stick around to help clean up before we leave and there is a new Buc’ees on the way home many might want to stop at.
Adults we will need help to plan food for Saturday breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Also Sunday morning before church and dinner that night, and Monday morning before we leave. If you can help with any of this please let Coach B know as soon as possible.
We have set the price as low as possible $100 per person. We will have access to a full industrial kitchen, large meeting room, military style bunk beds, 3-4 toilets per room, 3-4 showers per room, we will have a guys room for boys and dads, we will have a girls room for moms and daughters. Feel free to bring your friends and their families, your cousins, your grandparents, and anyone you want to share CTO with. We hope this trip transforms our chapter to new levels we have never experienced before.
If you are interested in helping out let Coach B know at 803-610-3750 and look for a video of Garden City Chapel coming to our Social Media on Facebook and Instagram soon.
