Just got home from the annual North Country Trail Association conference. This year it was in Cazenovia, NY (19 miles southeast of Syracuse). We had another wonderful time with approximately 160 like-minded individuals participating.
Great food, workshops, business meetings (yuk), HIKES, canoing, biking, site-seeing, silent auction (lots of great items, cheap), hilarious live auction (lots of great items, not so cheap ), awards cerimonies, musical entertainment, comedic entertainment, late evening trips to the local drinking establishments, plus plenty of old-fashioned visiting and renewing of friendships!
Next year's conference will be in Valley City, North Dakota. Promises to be every bit as good, already well on their way with planning and arranging. Mark July 30th through Aug 3rd on your calendars now!
