I hope everyone will be able to open these attachments. Chocpaw sent them to my personal email and I’m attempting to forward them on to you.
The winter committee is planning a two-day dog sledding outing for Feb.12-13 (the above letter states it’s Feb.11-12 which isn’t correct), followed by a cross country skiing, snowshoeing and skating outing. Participants can sign up for one or the other, or both activities.
Everyone that I’ve talked to about dog sledding through Chocpaw raves about it and encourages everyone to try it.
Chocpaw is located in South River which is approx. 60 km north of Huntsville.
The plan is to drive to South River on Sunday, February 11, spending the night in the Algonquin Motel. There’s a one hour orientation presentation at 8:30 Monday morning,(Feb.12) at Chocpaw, outlining what to expect, care of the dogs, etc. After that we begin the trip. There are two people per sled. You carry your own gear in the sled plus food for your dogs. We will spend one night in a heated prospector tent where you will care for your dogs. The following morning,(Feb. 13) we continue on our adventure, returning back to Chocpaw. If you have the necessary gear you bring it. If you don’t, it can be rented.
The two-day dog sledding is $615.85 per person. If we get 10 or more people there’s a 10% discount.
Algonquin Motel, for the night of February 11, is $89.00 per night double occupancy. Breakfast is included
Chocpaw is reserving a number of sleds for the outdoor club until Dec. 1. If you’re interested could you please make a decision by then.
There’s a second part to this trip. Since we’re up there we thought we could spend several nights in Huntsville and go cross country skiing in either Algonquin or Arrowhead Park. Arrowhead freezes an outdoor loop so you can ice skate as well. The hotel we’re planning to stay in is the Comfort Inn in Huntsville. It’s $96.00 double occupancy per night with breakfast included.
Again, you don’t have to sign up for both activities. If you just want to go dog sledding or you just want to cross country ski or snowshoe that’s fine.
I’m sure there will be questions. If so, please call me, Brian Seabrook at 519-542-2015.
