Next weekend is fast approaching and I for one am looking forward to a terrific hiking day. Details below regarding the hike, meeting point, time, route, etc. If you have any questions, please contact Bill Schaare (# listed below).
Lots of gear to split up at the meet point before we hit the trail. We have a 30′ flag pole in several sections, 3 flags, anchor ropes, etc.
