Start of the Season Cookout

  • Apr 27, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come join us for our 6th start of the season cookout (and the start of our 7th backpacking season)!  It's a great opportunity to meet new members and some of our "core" members.  For all you new members who haven't gone on a trip with us yet it's a good way to meet some of the people you'll be spending a weekend with!  We'll be grilling out and I'll provide the hamburgers and buns.  Everyone else should bring something for yourself to drink (including alcohol) along with a side or appetizer for the group.  For those who don't eat meat I'll provide some veggie burgers too.  As in the past, this should be a fun time!

*You might also want to bring a lawn chair or two for sitting out on the deck or around the fire ring.

*We're at 7,000 ft and it will be chilly once the sun goes down, so bring a jacket!

*We'll also have our Waiver & Release Forms available for you to sign.  You'll then be good to go for any trips/functions in the future.

 

Since it's usually a full house and I've already got 3 dogs here it'll work out best if this is a "people only" function.  But don't worry, dogs are always welcome on my backpacking trips!

 

RSVP's open up on March 1st for this event.  Since we have a large group attend these cookouts and food prep is involved, please make sure you can attend if you RSVP "Yes"!

 

You can find directions either by googling the address or going to our more/files section and downloading "Directions to Cookout".  Hope to see you here!

    For those of you who appreciate the natural beauty of the east mountains..., I am selling my mountain home up there. The ad is on Craigslist.com. It's an exceptional house and location (IMHO).
