Day Trips and Overnight Trips
I have re-connected with Cynthia Hartline of C&D Tours to book some day trips and overnight trips for the 2011-2012 season. Many people inquired last year, wanting to do some so I will post the trips that are planned as of right now. If you have any suggestions/requests, please email or call me and I will do my best to set it up with Cynthia. In order for a bus to pick us up here at Saddlebag, we need a minimum of 20 people (that's if it's a combined trip with another park). If it's just a SLR trip, the minimum to make it a “go" is 45 (but also depending on the bus size.) Cynthia is strictly using Small World Tours' buses for transportation. Her prices are a few dollars within the prices The Senior Circle is charging.
Here a few already planned: June 4th: “Mommies" $60.00(call me ASAP if you are interested in this one!), July 27th: Daytona Kennel Club $47.00, August 10th: Show Palace “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do" $76.00, Nov. 26th: Show Palace Christmas $75.00, Nov. 29th: Ellenton Outlet mall $31.00, Dec.9th: Mt. Dora $44.00. Jan. 29th: Biloxi- Feb. 1st, staying at Imperial Palace $249.00 ppdo. Call me for the details on these trips or any others. Thanks everyone! I'd like to help make this a fun year for you!
