Tuesday, February 9, 2010 3:38 PM
Greetings, Backpackers! A message from Trish, who would like to invite members of our group on a Winter Tracks Weekend on Gunflint Lake trip.
Please follow the instructions at the end of the message for deadlines and details on getting in touch with Trish. Please do not reply to this email.
We welcome you to join Rover's sister organization, the Border Route Trail Association, for Winter Tracks Weekend on Gunflint Lake. This is a casual trip with options to x/c ski, snowshoe, ice fish, dance and of course EAT with 12 other individual ski buffs and BRT enthusiasts. There are many ski options from beautifully groomed, rolling runs for beginners to back country wilderness for those who want a challenge.
We'll be staying at Heston's Lodge, (www.hestons.com) on the Gunflint Section of the nationally acclaimed Border Route Trail. We presently have two cabins reserved with an option on another cabin which has room for 6 additional people. Cabins have cooking facilities, showers, wood stoves (as well as propane primary heat), and lake views. There is also a fabulous lake side wood burning sauna! This weekend is also the Annual Gunflint Trail Winter Tracks celebration (www.wintertracks.com) which includes activities such as ice fishing contests (we have a few experts coming with augers), a Saturday dance at Windigo Lodge and dog sled rides at Gunflint Lodge. The best part however, is the camaraderie of shared meals with food enthusiasts. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners will be included if you like. Socializing on Fri eve to plan your days route and Saturday dinner will be shared at one cabin. The estimated cost of $90 includes 2 nites lodging, 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches and Saturday dinner. Transportation, ski passes, and alcoholic beverages are not included. We will help arrange carpooling closer to the trip date. A $50 deposit is required to hold your spot, no exceptions.
