Last minute details:
- We aim to arrive between 3:40 pm and 4 pm.
- Melissa needs a ride
- Natalie needs to confirm she can bring something other than pancake mix, as Luc has already volunteered this.
- We need 2 packs of bacon, cheeses & baguette/crackers, parmesan cheese. If you cannot pledge to bring these, we need $20 towards the cost of our shopping for these.
- Some will convoy from my place at 1191 rue Jacques-Cartier, Gatineau, QC at 3 pm (5 minutes from the Market with a giant skating oval out front that I cleared yesterday.) Directions to the cottage are in the comments section below.
Singles, come join a winter weekend tucked away on a riverfront log cabin on Calumet Island, Quebec. Come ski, snowshoe, and enjoy this rural escape, compliments of our Funabalu hostess, Karen Wallace.
We will travel 1 hour up the river to Karen's picturesque log cabin with nearby ski and snowshoe trails. This is an opportunity to get a break from the city in our beautiful countryside with other singles. Musicians welcome to bring instruments. Games and good fun suggestions welcome too.
We can accommodate up to 10 men and 10 women on a first come, first RSVP basis. Those who don't want to share a double/queen bed are welcome to bring their own cot, air mattress, etc. The plan is that we head up Saturday afternoon, ski/snowshoe, have dinner, make a fire, enjoy good company sharing music, stories and good times, stay overnight, and come back on Sunday. BYOB and share in a potluck or contribute funds towards food.
** This event is available to Winter activities program members only. If you want to become a member, just pay the $20 membership fee and you can join this and about a 100 other events for free.
The Cabin: There are two bathrooms. 10 db/queen beds, suitable for up to 20 people. If people do not want to share there is space for extra mattresses or cots that you are welcome to bring. First come, first dibs on the beds.
There is access to trails for skiing and snowshoeing, so bring your skis and snowshoes too.
We will have a potluck supper and potluck breakfast, so state what you are bringing. Otherwise, you are welcome to donate $20 to $30 towards the fare that we will buy to make up the difference.
BYOB Cottage is located on Grand Calumet Island about an hour from down town Ottawa (we can send directions to those attending, once you confirm you are coming).
Again, this is for Winter Activities Program members only. If you may like to become a Winter Activities Program member, please feel free to pay $20 for your membership.
