    EVENTS COMING UP

    Fall trip to Douthat – September 21-23.  That area of the state is expecting to get a lot of rain so members of the club will be checking with the park a few days before and decide if the trip should be cancelled.  If the park is open, some members may still go even if the trails are closed.  More information to come soon.

    Trail Work Cancelled – The Eagle Scout project at Wahrani scheduled for this Saturday has been cancelled due to the weather. We will release details of the rescheduled event once we have them.
