March 23, 2019 - 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM: Annual Beginner Backpacking Class
Note: this event is now open for on line RSVPs. (click on EVENTS)
This will be our Annual Beginner Backpacking Class / seminar held at Holliday Park. Over the course of 3-4 hours you’ll get a glimpse of what backpacking is all about. Close to 20 presenters will “show and tell” …… equipment, food prep, destinations, and “how to”. On that same day we will release a number of beginner overnight trips that you can sign up for only a $25 fee. These overnight trips will be held on a weekend during the spring at locations within Indiana. The trips are “teaching trips” and will be led by experienced leaders.
More details will be released soon....
SPRING 2019 BEGINNER BACKPACKING TRIPS
At our Annual Beginner Backpacking Class (described above) we will release a number of beginner trips. These will be overnight trips designed to be "entry level" and will be led by seasoned leaders. You will only need a minimum of gear (see gear list under the CLUB INFO tab) and we can loan tents or backpacks if you need one.
So, all you have to do is come to our class and you can register for one of these trips for a fee of $25.
