Especially thanks for  to the barbeque committee for a job well done.

2014 Camping & Rafting Trip – Sign Up Today!

26 May

Ahoy mateys! Time to put on your tri-corn hat, grab a cask of rum, and put the 9th annual rafting / camping trip on your calendars!


This year our voyage will be Friday, July 11 through Sunday, July 13th, camping with Landers River Trips in Narrowsburg, NY again. Friday night, Craigstock will be setting up tents across the street from the pole barn (aka: party place!). After settling in, relax around the bon-fire with your favorite beverage of choice and the every growing circle of family and friends.

Saturday morning we’ll have a continental breakfast set up next to the pole barn from 8am-9am; juice, coffee, tea, muffins, dry cereal, and fruit. The first bus will leave at 9am sharp to bring everyone who wants to go tubing up to skinners falls for an hour of playing in the rapids. The second bus will leave from camp at 10am with everyone else. After a group photo at 10:45am next to the river, we’ll set adrift in the great open waters of the Delaware river. If you’re bringing your own boat, you can drop it off a skinners falls in the morning and then catch a ride up river on either bus, leaving your car at the camp where our float ends.



We’ll be on the water for about 4 hours so stock your vessel accordingly with lunch or snacks and refreshments. Keep in mind we took on fire from neighboring boats in past years, a water gun (or two) may come in handy for defense (or offense). Watch for one raft in particular that was lobbing heavy artillery half way across the river last year. There is a rope swing out into the river by the rocks on the right hand side of the river across from the camp ground for a last dip before the end of the afternoon.



The BBQ will be set up next to the pole barn around 5pm with burgers, dogs, chicken, salads, chips, and ice cream. The band and bon-fire should be going on around 7pm for dancing (at either one!) and kicking back for the evening . . . night . . . early morning . . . .

Sunday morning will be a mixed breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, cereals, muffins, fruit, coffee, and tea around 9am.

A lot goes into putting this trip together so anyone looking to volunteer to help with cooking, cleaning up and any other tasks along the weekend would be appreciated, please get a hold of either of us at a meeting, email, or call. Please send in registration forms and signed wavers with checks made payable to Landers River Trips for camping and boat rental and a check for $20.00 per person made out to cash for food ($10.00 for kids 5-12yrs). Forms and payment must be in by June 15, so we can get it out to Landers. There will be no refunds after July 3rd.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Mt. Bike Ride at Mahlon Dickerson Reservation

07 Apr

Mt. Bike Ride at Mahlon Dickerson Reservation

Saffon Pond Parking Lot – Jefferson Twp. NJ

May 10th 2014 – 10AM


Come & join our fourth ride @ Mahlon. We’ll break the ride into various groups providing rides for all levels. Some loops will be gentle double tracks with a bit of climbing & a just few rocks here & there. Nothing  too crazy. Others will be a little more technical & for the more adventurous. We can also do some awesome fun technical trails. All ages welcome – you pick the ride you want.

There are only a few rules –

1)      Wear a helmet & bike gloves.

2)      Hybrids won’t be able to handle these trails very well. We have some extra bikes. You just need to let me know if you need one.

3)      Bring water or a sports drink, a couple energy bars and a spare tube.

4)      Eat a decent breakfast .(but don’t stuff yourself) at least an hour before you get to the park. Shredded Wheat, Eggs, Oatmeal – all good stuff. Stay away from meats.

After the ride, we’ll go to Charlie’s Tavern for some food & drinks. After that, all are welcome back at my place on Lake Hopatcong for more brews & maybe some water sports, weather permitting.

That’s about it. There will be enough experienced riders to help the less experienced riders with tips and whatever support is needed.

Any questions, you can give Chuck Emery a call @ 973-723-5358. Hope to see a bunch of you @ Mahlon.

Directions – Take Rte 15 No. 5 miles from Rte 80 to Weldon Rd. exit. – No exit sign, but there’s a small Mahlon Dickerson Park sign on the right (Just beyond the light @ the Getty & Quickchek, 2nd exit on the right). Go about 3 miles along Weldon & the Saffon Lot is on your right. Very visible from the road.

Hope to see you there.

Record Number of Racers@ Bromley

10 Mar

This past Saturday March 8, 2014 we had Craigmeur Ski Club’s annual club race at Bromley, VT, we had 72 racers which is a new club record. The weather was Sunny, 35 degrees and plenty of snow. As members were waiting to bash the gates, we had a few snow ball fights, a few made a snowman or two, some were waxing & sharping and some came to the event with newly purchased ski’s to give them that extra edge in the gates. The event took less than two hours, the new photographer took plenty of action shots, the pictures will be available for copying at future meetings, all the competitors seem to walk away with the feeling that they gave their all and other then a T-bar issue by the mountain near the end it was a great day.

Well in this reports opinion, everybody enjoyed the race, barbeque and fun. So remember you have 365 days to get ready for the 2015 race.
