Campers' Group Bulletin - Winter 2000-2001

Campers' Group Bulletin - Winter 2000-2001

Gliding effortlessly down a gentle slope on cross-country skis; playing tag on ice skates on a frozen lake; taking a deep breath of clean, cold air: what could be better than being outdoors in the winter? I personally guarantee that you won't be cold if you dress appropriately and stay active. So if you've never experienced the joy of winter sports before, or if the winter is your favorite season to be outdoors, then give us a call and try out some of our trips. You won't be sorry.

To reserve a space on a weekend trip or a day event, call the leaders during the listed time period. If you need information earlier than the dates listed below, call David at 718-897-1448. To go on a cabin trip, you must be a member. You can mail us your dues or pay it at the weekend. One year's membership costs $12 for an individual or $18 for a family ($8/individual or $12/family if you receive the newsletter by e-mail).
