Forever Explorers is a new hands-on, feet-wet experience designed for young-at-heart, lifelong learners who want to explore their coastal environment.

Whether you’re new to the area or have called Florida home for many years, you likely know the importance of the natural world to our coastal community…but perhaps you want to learn more! Let Marine Discovery Center’s certified naturalists engage you in a fun and unique educational exploration of the Indian River Lagoon and the flora and fauna that thrive here.

Participants will explore the roles of salt marshes, mudflats and various saltwater plants and animals by visiting different spoil islands on MDC’s pontoon boat, Discovery. Not only will you have the chance to see beloved animals like dolphins and manatees, but you will get off the boat and explore marshes and sandbars and use seine nets to identify different species that call this estuary home.

You will have the opportunity to see dolphins, manatees, turtles, eagles, herons, osprey, stingrays, crabs and more on the water here. We will stop on an island along the way to provide you a break and take in the natural environment around you. We will take pictures to share so you always have the memories you created with us.

Children are also welcome. Anyone age 9 and over can paddle their own vessel. Anyone 8 years and under can ride on a board with their parent or guardian. The whole family can enjoy being on the water together. When you leave this experience you will have a new skill you can use on many new adventures in the future!

Stephen King’s, Misery
Stephen King’s critically acclaimed novel, Misery is set to hit the stage! Someone can love you so much it hurts—you. The life of Paul, a successful romance novelist, is saved (or is it?) when he is rescued from a car crash by his “Number One Fan,” Annie Wilkes. Audiences will remember this as the knockout (pun intended) role which won Kathy Bates an Oscar for Best Actress in 1991. When Paul wakes up, he realizes he is being held captive in her remote, secluded home. As he slowly begins to get better, Annie reads the manuscript to his newest novel and becomes engulfed in rage when she discovers the author has killed off her favorite character, Misery Chastain! Annie forces Paul to write a new “Misery” novel, and he quickly begins to realize that his new caretaker/warden has no intention of letting him go anywhere. As Annie continues to unravel and lose her grip on reality, she has Paul writing day and night. It’s as if his life depended on it, which—it turns out—it does. Paul struggles to pen a book he doesn’t want to write and begins to realize that if he does not find a way out of this living nightmare, Misery will be much more than a character in one of his books; it’ll be his sole existence!

Not recommended for audiences younger than 14.

Top 2 teams will play for GOLD, teams finishing 2 in pool play will play for BRONZE
** ALL medal matches 2/3 to 11 by 2 **

The Round Robin results must be determined following the USA Pickleball Rulebook:

12.C.3. Round Robin. All players or teams play each other. Games may use any of the approved tournament scoring options. (See Rule 12.B.) The winner is determined based on number of matches won. If two or more teams are tied:

12.C.3.a. First tie-breaker: head-to-head matches won.

12.C.3.b. Second tie-breaker: point differential of all games played. (e.g., Team A won Match 1 11-8, 11-4, so they would have a point differential of +10. Team A then wins the second match 11-9, 2-11, 11-6. For this round, they would have a point differential of -2. This would give them a total for the day of +8.)

12.C.3.c. Third tie-breaker: head-to-head point differential.

12.C.3.d. Fourth tie-breaker: point differential against next-highest team. (e.g., If the teams are tied for second, use point differentials against the first-place team.)
