The REI store in Troy is conducting a free class on the backpacking basics..

 

You do NEED to register for the class. Here is the link to the registration page:http://www.rei.com/stores/troy.html

If you planning on attending, register a.s.a.p. as the room is limited to 40 people and the class usually fills quickly.

Please, RSVP here too, so I have some idea who is attending.

 

"REI will take the mystery out of backpacking as we share our knowledge in this show and tell session. We will cover backpacking essentials: choosing a pack; selecting proper clothing and the right footwear; and understanding the basic gear you need to reach your destination. No previous experience necessary!"

It's a good class for anybody interested in backpacking ...

Time: 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. (EDT)

The class is FREE.

    I am registered with REI for this class but will be a little late as I have a prior commitment I could not get out of. I have notified REI of this.

    If you are on the waiting list, I would still go. There are always some people who registered, but who will not show up. The risk that there will be more people than available spots is slim.

    If we signed up here on Meetup, does that mean we have a spot or do we need to sign up somewhere else?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
