St. John Sandbar Escape

October 19th – 24th 2016

Tentative Agenda

Special Note: In respect to Kenny Chesney and his friends on the island we want to make it EXTREMELY clear that we will NOT allow any “Kenny Chasing/Stalking” on this trip. We frequent the island of St. John several times a year and there is an unspoken policy by the locals that no one gives out any information on Kenny Chesney. He is highly guarded by the residents on the island for his privacy. We would never ask anyone personal information about him at any time. This trip is to have fun and fellowship with other No Shoes Nation members who live life to the fullest and love Kenny’s music. To enjoy the place Kenny sings  about in his songs and to expierence the magic that is St. John. If you are looking for Kenny or any info on him then this trip is not for you. Thank you for respecting our wishes in advance.
