2016 Fall Campout
The fall camp out is coming up on October 7th-9th.
Unfortunately the weather has not been cooperative with our fall campout plans. No worries we’ve decided to move the campout to Vantage where the weather looks much more promising. The camping setup in Vantage is a little different but we will be staying in the climbers camping area right by the Feathers and main parking lot. We may be a bit more dispersed for campsites but will try to congregate in a central location for the potluck and campfires.
We will be having a potluck on Saturday evening around 6 PM and the club is providing the main dish (sausages and some vegetarian options). Please bring a dish to share for the potluck. We will also be having a fire so please bring some wood to share.
