SAT JAN 26

SNOWSHOE HIKE NOR'WESTERS

We're going to try something we haven't done for a long time in this Section - a Snowshoe/Hike Event!

Location TBA, but it will be somewhere close to town.  

Our Host for the BMFF will be in town and this will allow us to showcase some of our amazing scenery to our guest.

Strongly suggest you have snowshoes and hiking poles for this event.

Bring a snack, drink and CAMERA along too. 

Those who sign-up will receive a communication from me where we'll meet at ~10am.


Please note - Our Section does not have any snowshoe equipment to loan.  There are a few places in Thunder Bay that rent showshoes if you need. (Wilderness Supply is one of them.)
