Important Announcement: Snowshoe trip rescheduled

Unfortunately there has been a significant lack of snow during the last few weeks of December and the forecast for the first two weeks of January is looking weak as well.

As a result, we are going to switch the January and February scheduled trips.

The January 17-18 trip will be lead by Mr. Baird and will be a back packing trip to Manzana Narrows. This is a beautiful area of the Los Padres National Forest. There will be an information and sign-up sheet provided at the January 6th meeting.

As a result the snow show trip will be rescheduled to February 21 and 22. Should you have any questions please contact Mr. Pinner.
