BIG NEWS! The New River Gorge trip is coming up real fast (Easter
Weekend)! This is one of our biggest trips and there will be plenty of
outdoor type things to do including climbing, rafting, hiking and
maybe even some caving. The plan is to head out Friday afternoon/early
evening and come back on Sunday evening. Tents will be available from
the club but you'll need to bring food. Are you 21? Let us know so we
can put you down to drive a van. This makes sure you have a spot on
the trip and allows more people to go along. The same applies if you
have your own car and are willing to drive. Sign up here →
