Prior to the Haiti trip (http://www.vansairforce.com/communit...ad.php?t=81289
), we are planning on spending the first few days helping out in the Bahamas.
We'd love to have some VAFers help us out from 2/16-2/19.
We will be departing from KORL (Showalter FBO in Orlando Exec) on Thursday afternoon for Governor's Harbour. Return on Sunday (or whenever you want to leave).
If you have never been to the Bahamas, this is a GREAT way to do it. We will help make it easy, peasy.
Here's the plan...
1200 Meet at Showalter Flying Service, Orlando Executive Airport (KORL)
Meet the Bahamas Habitat team: Prepare your documents, eat lunch, meet the group, etc.
1400 Depart KORL to arrive at Governor's Harbour, Eleuthera (MYEM) by 4:00pm Eastern
We will go through Customs together
1715 Settle in at Camp Symonette, Unload Donations, Orientation
1745 Sunset at the beach
0800 Work Sites
0800 Visit Zion Children's Home
Noon Free Afternoon (Beach, Geocaching Island Hopping-2nd Edition!, Free)
1930 Bahamas Habitat Presentation
Preparations for departure
Breakfast will be simple-cereal, etc.-and available when you come for it
0730 Early run to the airport for early departures
0800 Clean Camp
0900 Chapel Service
1000 Later run to the airport
Suggested donation is $350pp for food, lodging, supplies, etc. This donation helps cover the costs incurred by Bahamas Habitat for the event. Your expenses (fuel, donation, etc) are usually tax deductible if that helps out...
