Mark your calendars. ConnectUBC is back! While we’ve missed our in-person gatherings during the pandemic, we’re excited to have a small calendar of (mostly) virtual events to continue to create community with each other! Below you will find a list of events and some information about them! Reach out to Minister of Music & Outreach Jonathan Castillo at JCastillo@ubcaustin.org if you’re interested in attending!
Thursday through Sunday, March 18-21: UBC Spring Campout at Buescher State Park
This year’s annual UBC Spring Campout will be at Buescher State Park, less than an hour outside of Austin! Come for a day or for a night of fun in the great outdoors. Buescher State Park offers opportunities for hiking, fishing, paddling, biking, and geocaching! Physical distancing is still encouraged and masks are required in public spaces such as restrooms.
Friday, March 26: Drive-In + We Love Amelia Day!
Join us at a local drive-in for a movie and some socially-distanced fellowship! We’ll also take this opportunity to let Amelia know how much we love her on the last weekend she’ll be with UBC!
Friday, April 16: Zoom Happy Hour
Grab your favorite cocktail (or mocktail), find a fun virtual background, and join the party to unwind after the week!
Saturday, May 15: Socially Distant Picnic
Bring your favorite picnic food, a blanket or a chair! We’re hoping by mid-May that enough vaccines will have been distributed and cases will start to decline so we can have an outdoor picnic in the Mueller Lake Park in central Austin! Masks for when not actively eating and maintaining 6-feet distance from each other is encouraged.
