Sunday, January 4, Brunch & Planning Meeting, The Park Restaurant, Manhattan NY
This spacious, hip restaurant has nice selections, friendly staff, and a big atrium. Meet us at 1 pm, and we will enjoy a meal together before we discuss and decide on future trips. Afterward, perhaps we will stroll over to the nearby High Line Park.

If you have joined us on one or more of our outings in the past, we would greatly appreciate you volunteering to help lead a weekend or day event. If it is your first time, don’t worry, we will partner you with a more experienced member. We are a volunteer-run club that needs more of their members to participate.

February 13-16, X-Country Ski Trip, New Paltz Youth Hostel/Minnewaska State Park, New Paltz NY
Join us for a 2 or 3-day weekend in New Paltz, NY. In nearby Minnewaska State Park, there are groomed cross-country ski and snowshoe trails with incredible vistas of the Shawangunk Ridge.

If the hostel fills up, we can suggest area motels that are suitable alternatives. Public transportation is also available.
