Campers' Group Bulletin - Winter 2001-2002

Gone x-country skiing yet? Here is your chance to try it or, if you've done it before, to practice your skills. We're visiting mountain resorts (Frost Valley and the Adirondacks) where there's almost always snow. We're also going ice skating and getting together for parties and dinners. Please join us.

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). Make your check payable to Campers' Group and mail it to David Levner, 63-36 98th Place #5J, Rego Park, NY 11374.
