Winter in the BWCA

We welcome you to join us for Winter in the BWCA, presented at the weekly meeting of the Minnesota Rovers Outdoors Club.

A presentation and photo slideshow of winter camping in the BWCA. Three Rover members spent four days and three nights pulling sleds with camping gear over the lakes and portages last January. After driving down the Gunflint Trail to Round Lake, they entered the wilderness at entry point 51. Learn a few things on what it takes to have a fun winter camping trip.  You'll also be treated with a collection of photographs taken on previous winter camping trips.

Link to Campus Map showing Olin-Rice Science Hall, Bldg 15.  Free parking in the lot off Snelling Avenue or next to Rice Hall.  Enter the building via the north side door of Rice Hall (Bldg 16).

Socializing takes place afterward at Billy's on Grand (1.6 miles east of Macalester on Grand Avenue and Victoria Street) We meet in the Green Room -- ask the staff to point you to it.

    I had fun. There was a couple dozen hard-core people who showed up during a snow storm for this.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
