    For most people, the camping gear has officially been packed
    away for the winter. Canoe Trails, however, just breaks out
    the heavy sleeping bags! Check out the CT Forum and see
    when the winter camping fun is going to take place! 

    If you want to have a general idea as to the gear you may
    need, check out the Snow Trails information sheet
    (pages 5-9 specifically). 

    This is one adventure you do not want to miss!

    A big THANK YOU to all of the veterans who have served this
    great country we call the United States of America. Without
    you, freedom would not exist.

    sure to mark your calendars for the upcoming reunion! 
    This event will be held at the barn on November 28th, from
    7pm-9pm. For those who want to see what was missed this year, 
    feel free to stop on by!

    What a trip! We had good weather, great times, and amazing
    people on an adventure that will go down in history for some.
    A big thank you to all those that made this trip possible! 
    Without each of you, it would still be a dream.

    As a reminder for all. We have cleanup set for this Sunday at the
    barn. This will be a work day so dress accordingly and be
    prepared to work.

    Keep tabs on this page and the forums for the 2010 schedule
    as well as the dates/times for the Courier du Bois.

    CT is alive and moving forward full speed ahead!

    It has arrived! The trip for those who have trained and worked
    hard over the past summer is 3 days away. Long days of honest
    work mixed with memories and sights never seen before.

    For those who have been reading the CT website and
    are not going, we wish you were. Make that commitment now
    and start showing up. We promise, the memories made will
    certainly last a lifetime.

    Due to the lack of attendance yesterday, it has been decided
    to have this Thursday, July 30th, as a makeup/pack up evening. 
    Please view this as a meeting you must attend if you plan on
    going to Canada this year. Pack up starts at 7PM.

    Any questions, please email Mr.Z.

    The Canoe Trails Committee is proud to release the Summer
    2009 News Letter online! All dues-paying members have
    received this by mail already. If you are interested in receiving
    this by mail and you are not currently an active CT member,
    please contact Mr.Z for information.

    Also! Do not forget about pack up this weekend! If you
    forget it Saturday, you will have to carry it until we make
    camp the first night in Canada.

    Keep an eye on the CT forums for continued updates,
    times, and events!!

  • 20 July, 2009

    As of today, all medical and release forms have been removed
    from the CT website. This is simply because Canada is that
    close and if you have not turned in these documents, then
    you are probably too late. Check with Mr. Z if you need any
    of the documents. 

    While perhaps a bit premature, next years medical, consent,
    and conduct forms will be posted some time in the fall after
    we return from Canada.

  • 11 July, 2009

    As a reminder!

    Work day is this Sunday, July 12th. Meet at the barn.

    Final Review and all monies must be paid this Thursday, July 16th. 

    FINAL pack-up is on July 25th, not the 26th. ALL gear, 
    including bush clothes
    must be brought to the barn on the 25th.
    This is an 8AM to 4PM event, so expect to be there at 8AM! 
    Depending on how many people show up and how hard we work,
    there is the possibility of leaving earlier than 4PM. 

    Make arrangements on your calendar now folks. Canada is close!

  • 3 July, 2009

    Is it almost that time again folks! Canada and the amazing outdoors
    is right around the corner for all those who have trained hard over
    the past few months. As a form of reminder / informational for all
    participants:

    -  The dates for this years trip are August 7th - August 15th, 2009. 
    -  ALL paper work, copy of passport, and monies are due NO 
        LATER than July 12th or you cannot go this year. The requirement
        of a passport cannot be stressed enough due to new regulations 
        when reentering the United States..
    -  Pack-up participation is mandatory on July 12th, 16th, and 26th. 
        Please check the CT Forum for times and locations. 
    -  Anyone going to Canada must speak with Mr. Z by
        phone, email, or in person NO LATER than July 12th. 

    BE SURE to check the CT Forum often. This is where most
    communication will be taking place between now and when
    we leave for Canada.

    Have a SAFE and happy 4th of July yall.

    Spring is in the air, school is about to end, the trees have leaves; 
    this can all mean only one thing! Canoe Trails is gearing up for our first
    weekend of fun on the water! All participants have completed their
    swim tests and physicals should have been scheduled if not 
    completed by now. If you have not completed these, you must 
    see Mr. Z right away. If you are not sure what is happening in the
    future, check out the CT Schedule.

    Are you ready to have some fun this year!?

    With all this talk about spring, we also would like to mention
    Snow Trails! We found a very cool article about Snow Trails and
    past requirements and wanted to pass it along. So, if you are 
    looking for something to read, why not check out the 
    NEW Snow Trails tab to the left?


    Lastly, the CT website has established a web page for all known
    digital documents, both new and old. This was all brought about
    in part because of a document that talked about the Canoe Trails
    program in 1987! If you would like to read this and other past
    articles, check out the Archives tab to the left.

    2009 News Letter! All dues-paying members will receive this
    by mail very soon. If you are interested in receiving this by mail
