WODC 2001 SUMMER SCHEDULE

TRAIL WORK EVENTS

Saturday, May 19; 8:15 AM. Annual Trail Clearing Day

Help our trail adopters clear the winter blowdowns in preparation for another busy hiking season. Expect lots of snow at higher elevations. Meet at Ferncroft parking lot.

June 11 - 15. Crew Training Week

Our SCA crew "Boot Camp" covers training in trail maintenance, grip hoist and rigging, low-impact camping and wilderness first aid. These workshops are open to a limited number of interested trail volunteers. Call 323-8827 for more information.

June 18 - August 17. Walden Trail Reconstruction

Come see, or even help, a well trained, energetic trail crew do state of the art work. Mondays thru Wednesdays are the best times to visit, or call 284-6686.

Saturday, July 21; 8:15 AM. NH Trails Day

The most important work we can do to protect our trails and mountains is to maintain our drainage structures. Meet at Ferncroft for a day of waterbar cleaning.

September 28 - 30. Sleepermania Weekend

Three days on the most remote trail in the Sandwich Range. We’ll do the usual maintenance and maybe have time to re-arrange some rocks. Come for a day or the whole weekend. Call 323-8827 for details.

Saturday, October 13; 8:15 AM. Open Trail Day

Each year there’s always some maintenance "emergency" arising that doesn’t fit into our set schedule. What better time than a crisp, sunny (cross your fingers) autumn day to wrap up the trail season? Meet at Ferncroft.


NON-MASOCHISTIC EVENTS

Saturday, May 19; 5:30 PM. Potluck BBQ

Nancy and John Boettiger will host this new addition to our social calendar in the scenic and historic yard of the Bradbury Jewell homestead. Call 323-8812 for details.

Saturday, July 21; 5:30 PM. Potluck at Dick’s Pond

This has quickly become an annual favorite. Bring your bathing suit. Sweaty, dirty, trail workers will be dipped and rinsed in the pond before being allowed to mingle. There’s a fair chance a ping pong tournament will develop after the outdoor festivities. Call Dick Daniels at 323-8078.

Saturday, July 28; 10:30 AM. Brook Walk

A nice family-oriented excursion, this is an easy two or three hour walk with Bob Craycraft, a watershed expert with UNH Cooperative Extension. Bring food and drink for a brookside picnic. Meet at Ferncroft. Call 323-8827.
