VOW Potluck Rendezvous 2013
Given the success of last year's August rendezvous and cookout, we thought that there might be interest in doing it again. Maybe this year we should consider a spot closer to central Vermont, if there is enough interest. Any suggestions for a location and date? Let us know if you are interested.
Winter Doe Camp was a good time for all!
Many thanks go out to Hulbert Outdoor Center for hosting our Winter Doe Camp at the beginning of March. The weather was perfect and our instructors were awesome. We enjoyed the facilities, meals and staff so much that we are already planning Winter Doe Camp for Feb 28 - March 2, 2014 at Hulbert. Save the date if you are interested in attending and tell your friends.
