Trail Clearing at Camp du Nord

Oct 4-7, Thur-Sun (AK) Trail Clearing at Camp du Nord. The North Arm trails near Ely, MN have been developed and maintained by the North Stars for many years. These are single-track trails through the woods into the BWCAW, so they are not machine-groomed. Join us as we hike into the Boundary Waters to clear these beautiful trails with hand tools provided by the US Forest Service.  We work all day Friday and Saturday and have the option to paddle or hike on Sunday morning. Gas reimbursement per club policy for those who carpool.  Terrence Smith will call a dance for us this weekend to help loosen our tired muscles - and if that doesn't work, the sauna is ready and waiting.  Food and lodging are provided by YMCA Camp du Nord and the USFS. There is a limit of 20 people, so sign up early. Send your signed reservation and waiver form with a check for $35 (payable to Dana Siskind) to Dana at 5812 Thomas Circle, Minneapolis, MN 55410 You will receive a partial refund when you arrive at camp; the remaining money will cover the cost of the dance. FFI: Inez Wick, 612-825-3596 or Dana Siskind 612-929-0205.
