Come join us on Saturday, December 14 at Birch Brook Nordic Ski Club for our first Full Moon Potluck & Snowshoe of the 2019-2020 season!

We will meet in the chalet for a delicious potluck dinner at 5:30pm. Bring your favourite dish to share, whether it be an appetizer, a main dish, a side dish, or a dessert. It can be hard to pinpoint exact numbers for these events, so feel free to bring along a container for leftovers!

After dinner we will head outside for a snowshoe under the light of a full moon. Be sure to bring a head lamp and dress for the weather (warm, waterproof, and in layers). Trail passes and snowshoe rentals will be available in the chalet for those that need them.
