Hunting Season is underway!
Wearing a blaze-orange vest, jacket, hat, or pack cover is one of the most important things you can do to stay visible to hunters. If you do not have blaze-orange clothing items, then bright colors (such as yellow) will help. Steer clear of wearing earth-tones and white.
Welcome Wayne Richter as our Chapter's New Outings Chair

Seeking applicants in the 11 to 17 age group to sponsor for 2014 summer camp season
Selected applicants here will have a choice of five possible locations which in the past have included the High Peaks area, portions of the Northville-Placid Trail and the Lake George area, though several other areas fall into consideration dependent upon need. Again, the GF-S Chapter will cover the cost to participate.
Those interested may go to the link Education Department to read more about these camp programs and to download applications and receive contact information. DEC applications must be in by December 31st as DEC is opening up its registration come mid-January and acceptance will be on a first come, first serve basis.

Winter Mountaineering School running Jan 31 - Feb 6 (Deadline: Jan 15)
Past participants have included three season hikers and backpackers looking to expand their skills to include winter hiking, backpacking and mountaineering, as well as more experienced skiers, trip leaders and winter mountaineers who are wishing to refine their skills or are looking for some excitement and adventure. Our friendly, experienced, all-volunteer staff; low student-instructor ratio; and pricing make the ADK Winter Mountaineering School the best value in the Northeast for learning winter skills. They offer day trip, weekend backpacking, and weeklong backpacking options.
