Generally there are two major trips. Both an eastern and western week long trip. For 2002-2003 a second eastern trip and a european trip is planned. One or more local weekend trips are generally planned. Major trips are usually planned in May and June. It is earlier every year. For this reason, the best time for new members to join is then. The major trips are often sold out by early fall although there are often last minute openings.
We have a monthly meeting. This is normally the third Tuesday of each month at the Middle Road Inn at 1822 Middle Road in Glenshaw. The meeting starts at 7:30 PM. If you are eating too, arrive to place your order at 7:00 PM or earlier. You are welcome to drop by to learn a bit about us. This is the best way to get to know us before joining. Just in case there is a change of meeting schedule send the club a note. We can let you know of any last minute meeting changes.
This is an overview map of the meeting location. The plus sign marks the spot. This map shows the detail of the connection from Middle Road to Route 8 at Saxonburg Blvd. This would be at the southern end of the overview map. (Use the enlargement feature of the viewer to see the maps more clearly. 200 percent works very well.)
