Upcoming events

Sunday Trip w/ Wine and Cheese @ Scenic Caves : Sunday, February 2nd, 2019

Every year, Trakkers hosts a Wine and Cheese for members to mingle and socialize after gliding on the trails. This year we are returning to Scenic Caves on Sunday February 2nd, in their cozy log cabin, for our celebration. We'll gather informally at around 3:00 for some nibbles, beverages, and socializing. Bus will depart at 4:30 p.m. since the days are now longer starting in February. This is a great trip to bring family and friends to experience the wonderful social side of the club! 

We will only have three instructors available for lessons on Feb 2, so sign-up early.  These are the classes offered that will be limited to the maximum capacity.

Absolute Beginners - 6 spots
Experienced Beginners - 8 spots
Intermediate Classic - 8 spots
