We also get together at one of our member's home four times a year to share great food and tales of our latest adventures. The membership fee is $3 per household.
Trips for the upcoming 2012/2013 Ski Season:
- First we are planning a 5 day trip to Stratton, VT on 2/3 - 2/8/13. Cost of the trip is approx. $600/person which includes lift tickets for 5 days and accommodations for 4 people in a 2 BR 2 Bath condo. There is also cross-country skiing available not too far from the lodging accommodations.
- Second, our big trip for the season is to Steamboat Springs, CO on 3/2 - 3/9/13. Accommodations are at Storm Mountain (Slopeside 2 BR-2Bath-4person condo). Flying into Hayden airport. Cost is approx. $2000 /person which includes air and ground transportation, lift tickets for 6 days, and accommodations. Cross-country skiers will find 166 km of groomed trails and will not be charged for lift tickets, but may have to pay locally for trail usage.
- If we get enough interest we will do our traditional Tremblant trip during the first week of February at the Hotel du Lac: 5 days skiing, great food, great skiing.
We can be flexible in our trips for non-skiers and those desiring other types of accommodations. Pricing will vary accordingly. We would like to get an idea about the number of participants by 9/7/12.

Dates of activities vary based on group interest and availability. Events/gatherings will be posted on the the Google Group and Facebook Group.
We are organized around various outings and adventures (movies, cooking together, eating out, community service, concerts, coffee houses and more) for the purpose of creating connections with other 20- and 30-year-old Unitarian Universalists.
The group is open to couples and singles alike. Activities vary from month to month and are never overly serious. A great way to meet some other Unitarians who are "on the younger side."
Unirondack Fall Camping Trip [Fall 2012]
Contact: Dave Vanable
September 28 - 30, 2012
Join us in the Fall for a wonderful and relaxing weekend hiking, canoeing, and enjoying the Fall colors. First Unitarian members and friends have enjoyed a weekend getaway at Unirondack for over 20 years. This wonderful camp is about 3 1/2 hours from Rochester, on the western edge of the Adirondacks north of Syracuse. Together we have a fine time hiking, canoeing, playing games, and getting to know one another while chatting, cooking, or reading by the fire - in and among thousands of acres of a "forever wild" forest preserve with towering pine trees and rolling but rugged hills that surround the camp.
We share community meals - everybody helps to cook and clean up! - and enjoy rustic cabins (bunks with mattresses) while admiring the fall foliage. Sound like fun? Register after church on September 8, 9, 15, or 16.
