[mmc-l] PUMPKIN TUMBLE and new trips!


New trips added to the future trips calendar (see below), including multiple rock climbing day trips and a Wednesday-Thursday sunset hike up Mt. Abe. Also, if you tried to sign up for canoeing last week, the email address was wrong, so please send a new email to the address listed.

PUMPKIN TUMBLE- This Friday at 5!

Brooker House, 5:00 PM
Come to the annual MMC Pumpkin Tumble! You can bob for apples, compete in a woodsman competition (fire-building, axemanship, etc), drink cider, eat flatbread pizza, and spend time with friends. Make a pie (savory or sweet) and enter it into the pie competition-- prizes for winners. This is one of our big events and it's always a hit. Bring your parents! The perfect way to celebrate fall. 
Here is a list of trips that will be going out this fall (listed chronologically). We'll be adding trips all the time, so continue to stay tuned to the weekly MMC emails. If you're interested in a certain type of trip that we're not already offering, email and let us know your interest! To sign up for a trip, email the leaders. No experience necessary, unless otherwise noted. More details to come about trips, but in the meantime, email leaders or mmc with questions. Trips will be removed as they fill up. Feel free to start signing up NOW! (To see the trips on a calendar, follow this link:
