Join us for a glorious fall weekend at Squam Lake in Holderness, NH, launching at 10AM from Squam Lakes Association in Piper Cove at 10AM on Friday, September 25th, and returning to the cars after lunch on Sunday, September 27th. Our group base camp will be on beautiful Moon Island (approximately 2 miles from the Piper Cove put-in). There are numerous coves and islands to explore on daily paddles, as well as the option of for short hike up one or both of the Rattlesnake Mountains (fabulous views, and hopefully peak foliage) or a longer hike to the Red Hill firetower. We typically have a gourmet pot-luck feast on Friday night, with plenty of leftovers for Saturday. If skies are clear, the moon will be 80% full and rising early enough for night paddling.
Our group is limited by space to 10 tents, which need to fit onto the three large wooden camping platforms at the site. $40 reserves your spot on this trip - contact me and RSVP here when you're ready to commit. If we get 10 campers, your cost will be closer to $25, and excess funds will be returned on Moon once we've paid for firewood. This trip needs a minimum of 6 campers to RSVP by August 1st in order to run, or it will be cancelled and you will receive a full refund.
You are not confirmed on the trip until I receive your $40 deposit, by check or PayPal to [email protected]
You will receive a full refund if fewer than six people sign up by August 1st, and the entire trip is cancelled.
You will receive an excess funds reimbursement on Moon Island if you actually show up on the trip and excess funds have been collected.
I will not be managing a waiting list for this trip, or facilitating transactions between club members. The first 10 people to pay the deposit are on the trip. If you didn't get on the trip and would like to go, post your intentions on the forum. There are almost always drop-outs and cancellations. If you ARE on the trip but can no longer attend, you can sell your spot on the trip to anyone within the club - just let me know so I can add them to the trip roster.
See you at Squam!
