Our summer activities will include 5 bike rides and 1 hike this year.  MeetUp will be used again for sign up and reminders will be included in our Monthly Eblasts.  You can also refer to our website for information about the upcoming activities.  While advance sign up is appreciated, you are welcome to come out if you find you can make it at the last minute.

New for this year, “Club Cash” will be awarded for participation in 2 or more events.  For the second and each subsequent event you participate in, you receive $5.00 in “Club Cash”.  “Club Cash” can be used towards any 2018/19 ski trips, including Mt Bachelor, Attitash/Wildcat and Elk Mountain trips.  Click here for Club Cash details.
