At this time in order to secure our cabin reservations we will need your deposit check in the amount of $250.00 per person due by June 1st, 2018 as space is very limited
The balance of $750.00 per person will be due when final payment to cruise company is made in March 2019 (next year)

Available number of cabins is limited to 13 therefore this cruise will be on a 'first come - first served' basis based on when your deposit check is received. Thus get your check for $250/person in ASAP.

RPYC Transportation
transportation signup:

Based on several requests from our members who find driving at night to be a challenge the RPYC Board has approved offering a transportation service for select events. We will be offering this service on a trial basis beginning with the August Membership Meeting to be held at Whiskey Creek Country Club on Wed., Aug. 1st.

We have contracted with a private limo company to provide door-to-door transportation service and they will pick you up at your home and return you home after the meeting. However, you must reserve your spot for this service by Friday, July 27th.  

This service will be provided by RPYC as a courtesy and at no charge, however, if after you reserve and you do not cancel before the deadline date or fail to show up for your ride you will be billed a minimum of $50.00 to cover the cost of the time allotted by the limo company.

If you are interested, we ask that you let us know
make a transportation reservation below
ASAP so we can give the company the proper information and to advise you of your pick-up time at your individual location. When you make your reservation
please indicate what event you wish transportation for
and we will follow up with a phone call with you to confirm your reservation
