NOVEMBER 2019 NEWS
It may look like CIWC has gone to sleep, but be assured we are hard at work. We are in “planning season” and working on 2019 trips, classes and workshops. These events will be rolled out in a sequence over the next months.
SOME IMPORTANT DATES
January 23, 2019 – Public Roll Out at Holliday Park (Indianapolis)
This is when we release our trips to the general public. Trip leaders will be present to promote their trips and to answer questions. Dues-paying members will have had first chance at sign up prior to this time but there still will be lots of openings. Once you see a trip that you like you can then join the club on the spot and then sign up with a deposit. Watch for the official announcement.
Sometime in March – date to be announce soon.
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.
