Other Hikes, Events and Trips Proposed By Our Members
The 1st Annual Spring Fling at the Big Horn RV Park!
Took place March 21st and March 22nd ~
"This was a big success and we could not have accomplished all of this without your help!", said the new owners and our fellow club members, Doug & Judy Dolton. They also sent out "Thank You's and Camping Gift Certificates" to all. There were 13 CWH members along with Doug & Judy and 4 of their friends that came to help. Yes, the rakes, tree trimmers, bush clippers, shovels, saws, trucks and muscle power...were flying into action to get this wonderful RV Park ready to open on April 1st.
The Dolton's provided a great cook-out lunch and we had plenty of potluck dishes and beverages to pass, as well. In fact we had so much "fun and work" that no one wanted to go on the hike after lunch. Instead, they really wanted to finish their projects. There were several who spent the night and worked on more projects the next day and some even went on a short hike before leaving.
We all decided that next year would certainly not be as challenging for clean-up and we would definitely plan to be go on some hikes too! Check out facebook for some photos.
