Soul Garage @ Skate City March 29

You never know what you might see at Skate City!

All youth 6th-12th grade are invited to join the Soul Garage youth at Skate City for a FUN NIGHT on Wednesday, March 29th from 5:45-8:45pm.  This will be in place of our regular youth group activities.

Parents, please drop off your youth and pick them up directly from Skate City (just south of the movie theater off Highway SS).  You can drop them off any time after 5:45pm.  Please pick them up no later than 9:00pm.

The cost for this FUN NIGHT is FREE!  Originally, we planned to charge a $3 charge to offset the cost, but Steve and Sarah Miller (Skate City owners) have provided us with a significant discount and the youth budget will cover the remainder.

Included is your choice of quad skates or inline skates, free pizza, and one free drink coupon (juice, water, or pop).

The only thing you would need to bring money for is if you want to buy additional food or additional drinks or plan to play arcade games.

We plan to bring card games and board games for any who want to hang out but don’t plan to skate.  So, even if you don’t want to skate, please plan to come and hang out!

Invite your friends and come join us Wednesday, March 29th!

Bigger OR Better Fun Night

As has been our tradition over the past few years at the Soul Garage, every month that has a 5th Wednesday we plan a special fun night for the youth group.  September has a 5th Wednesday and it is only a few days away.  Next Wednesday, September 30th we have a very special fun night planned for the Soul Garage youth.  We have announced it during the past couple weeks, but we wanted to make sure that all parents are aware of the plans for this special night.  We are asking youth to arrive at 6:30pm, if possible, to gather and receive instructions on how the night is going to play out.  We are going to be playing a game called Bigger OR Better.  We intend to depart from the Soul Garage at 6:45pm.

The game will be played throughout the surrounding community with various youth leaders each driving a group of youth in their vehicle around the community with the goal of returning to the Soul Garage with the biggest and best items they can find.  Each group will be given a penny to start the game.  They will then find someone to trade their penny for something bigger or better.  They will then take that item and find someone else to trade with to get something even bigger or even better.  The game will continue until the allotted time is up and everyone returns to the Soul Garage for the judging portion of the game.  The youth leaders will judge which group returned with the biggest or best treasure.  Everyone on the winning team will receive a $5 Culvers Gift Card. We plan to be done at 9:00pm as normal.

The goal of the night is to build relationships and have lots of fun getting to know each other at a deeper level as we work together as a team to bring home the biggest and best item.  We hope that this fun interactive game will create some lasting memories and help youth interact with some others that they may not already know.

If you have any questions or concerns about our plans for the night, please call me ASAP.  No youth will be allowed to drive during the event, ONLY adult leaders.  My cell is 847.682.2405
