Coast Guard Auxiliary to Present Basics of Navigation Class
A hands-on class taught by certified USCG Auxiliary instructors will introduce
boaters to chart reading, chart plotting and aids to navigation. The full-day
session, November 23 rd , will provide new (and not-so-new) boaters the skills to
know where you are on the water and chart where you want to go. You also
will learn about the various types of aids to navigation that guide you on the
water. You may bring your own plotting tools, or we will supply them for class
purposes. Students will receive a text book and training chart to work with
and take home.
The course will be held on Saturday, November 23 rd 8:30am to 4:30pm at the
Tri-community Volunteer Fire Department facility at 200 Saints Delight Rd., in
Bridgeton. A fee of $40.00 covers instruction as well as the Boating Skills and
Seamanship Manual... Additional family members or guests using the same
text and chart pay only $5.00.

This annual Hubb's Express train ride experience and special presentation of the movie “Polar Express” has become a holiday tradition, with chilly nights warmed by smiling faces, hot chocolate, s’mores and campfires. Santa is available before and after the movie, and doesn’t leave Hubb’s Farm until all children have had a chance to give him their Christmas list!
Limited tickets are available to preserve the intimate, small-theater atmosphere and must be purchased online in advance. Purchase tickets at www.hubbsfarmnc.com/polar-express-movie-and-santa-too.
$20 per person, ages 2 to adult (under 2 free)
Ticket includes time with Santa, "Polar Express" movie screening, hot chocolate, Hubb’s Express train ride, and a jingle bell souvenir for all attendees. We will also provide campfires for cooking marshmallows, s’mores and toe-warming (just not at the same time!). S’mores kits are available for purchase at the time of ticket purchase. One kit makes four s’mores.
What to bring:
- Pop-up or bag chairs
- Christmas PJs welcome!
- In cold weather, consider bringing a blanket
- A small flashlight is recommended for better visibility in the parking lot
What to expect:
- Park near the 12-foot inflatable Santa by the drive, rather than in the main Hubb’s parking area.
- Customers will be transported to the North Pole via the Hubb’s Express train starting at 5:15 p.m. Train departures are approximately every 15 minutes. The last departure will be at 6:45 p.m.
- Santa will be available upon your arrival, and campfires will be ready for s’mores.
- By 7 p.m., everyone should be in place in the outdoor theater; hot chocolate will be available before and during the movie.
- As in the past, an era car for the Hubb’s Express train will carry strollers and chairs. After the movie, designated drivers can ride the Hubb’s Polar Express back to the parking lot and then pick up the rest of the family at the front.
