The Chapter will hold its 2013 Winter Weekend at the Wiezel Trails Cabin at Heart Lake
from Friday, March 15, 2013 to Monday, March 18, 2013.
From the cabin, we will be able to cross-country ski and snowshoe to many area High Peaks. This is a good opportunity
for those of you working toward your Winter 46. Algonquin, Iroquois, Wright, Phelps, Tabletop, Marcy and many more High Peaks
await your snowshoes. A ski or snowshoe trip into Avalanche Lake and Lake Colden could also beckon. Indian Pass would be a nice trip.
Perhaps sunrise or sunset from Mt. Jo might be all you want to do. The Heart Lake property also has excellent ski trails.
We never rule out possible shopping in Lake Placid. Saturday and Sunday Dinners and breakfast coffee are included in the price.
The Wiezel Trails Cabin, with electricity, a kitchen, bathrooms and showers, sleeps 16 persons in four four-person bunkrooms.
In many of our past years, we have had one or more persons finishing their Winter 46 during this weekend. We may possibly have another finish that quest!
The rate for the weekend should be no more than $110 per person, if we fill all 16 spaces.
To reserve your spot, send your deposit of $110 per person as soon as possible to John Schneider, 6 Nonchalant Drive, Saratoga Springs, New York 12866.
Call 518-584-8527 for more details. Reservations are on a first-come, first-serve basis. If we fill all 16 spots, we will maintain a short
waiting list. The past four years, some persons have dropped out and wait-listed persons have enjoyed their weekend with us.
Becky Mosher, our executive chef for more than 20 years of Chapter Winter Weekends, retired after the 2010 Winter Weekend. Although she
still plans on attending, we must find new volunteers to plan and execute dinners. The kitchen is quite small, and if all of us made our
own dinners, this would cause quite a bottleneck. Thus, we are looking for volunteers to handle this important part of the Weekend.
Do not wait until the last minute to make your reservations. The past few years, we had a number of persons who thought they were registering
early enough, only to find out that the reservations were full, and they had to be wait-listed.
Enjoy your summer, but think of the Chapter Winter Weekend 2013.
Finally, this will be the last time John Schneider will be coordinating this event, having done this for the past 23 years.
It is time to turn this over to another Chapter member who wished to continue this rich tradition of a Glens Falls-Saratoga Chapter
Winter Weekend in the Adirondacks. Let me know if you have an interest in taking this on.
