Campers' Group Bulletin - Winter 2003-2004

Campers' Group Bulletin - Winter 2003-2004

Think snow! We have three cabin trips planned for this winter, and hope to ski at two of them. By dressing in layers and staying active, you too can enjoy the cold weather.

In addition, we'll get together at mid-winter parties in warm N.Y. City apartments and restaurants. So please mark your calendars. We look forward to meeting you.

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. You can mail us your dues or pay it at the trip or event. 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.
