Jan 28 Monthly Meeting Announcement – Backpacking 101
We are pleased to have Matt Clapp introduce this 10 week introductory training course that we will be hosting this Spring. Matt is newly arrived in Charlotte from San Diego where he led their local Sierra Club’s backpacking 101 training. The course is specifically for beginners. You do not have to be a Sierra Club member to participate.
If you bought a backpack for wandering around Europe or got one as a gift and it’s still in the garage, this is your chance to get it out and learn how to use it in the wilds. Using a combination of classroom talks and practical weekend experiences, Matt will take the participants through a rigorous process to learn how to safely and comfortably enjoy going backpacking. The course is also a great refresher.
Our Jan 28th meeting will provide and introduction to and overview of this course.
As usual, our meetings are held at the Mahlon Adams Pavilion in Freedom Park. The address is 2435 Cumberland Ave, Charlotte, NC. Pizza is served at 6:30pm. The formal meeting begins at 7pm. We expect to finish up by 8:30pm. The meeting is free and open to all. And ample parking is available and also free.
Hope to see you there.
David Robinson, Chair Central Piedmont Group of the Sierra Club
Sierra Club Monthly Meeting – 10/22/14 – Members Trip Highlights
Please join us Wednesday October 22nd for a special presentation by us.
For this monthly meeting we will be highlighting photos and stories by our members of their most memorable trips to our National Parks. The time allotted to each individual will depend on how many members actually want to participate and show their pictures. Could be 10 minutes – could be five. But it should be quite interesting. The pictures need to be in digital format and stored on a flash drive.
If you have photos and want to participate please contact Steve Copulsky by email at email@example.com or by phone at 704-458-6651.
As usual, our meeting is at the Mahlon Adams Pavilion in Freedom Park and begins at 6:30pm for pizza and socializing. The formal meeting begins at 7pm.
Parking is free, as is the evening presentation.
We look forward to seeing you.
