Campers' Group Bulletin - Winter 2002-2003

Campers' Group Bulletin - Winter 2002-2003

An early December snowstorm started the x-country skiing season early. Although the snow outside my window quickly became a grey mush, in the countryside it is still a fine white powder. We have three cabin trips planned this winter: to High Point State Park in New Jersey, to Lake Placid in the Adirondacks, and to French Creek State Park in Pennsylvania. On the first two of these trips, you'll be able to x-country ski and enjoy other winter sports. We're also getting together for a Christmas dinner, a winter party and a brunch. 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. To reserve a space on our cabin trips, you should also mail your check to this address.

January 17-20, High Point State Park, Sussex, NJ
We know High Point well from our summer camping trips. In the winter, the park has groomed x-country ski trails and ski rentals. We're staying at the High Point Country Inn because it's very close to the park. The cost is $30-50 per person per night depending on how many people you share a room with. This includes breakfast but not ski rentals. Or, since High Point is relatively close to NY City, you can join us for the day. NO CALLS BEFORE DECEMBER 17.
