2016 FRB Campout

Lakeview CampgroundThis year’s camping trip will be at Lakeview Campground, Loop E in Twin Lakes, Colorado.

Lakeview Campground, with wonderful views of the Twin Lakes Reservoir, offers a large space with options for tent, RV and group camping. Located about 29 miles north of Buena Vista and 26 miles south of Leadville, the campground attracts plenty of hikers looking to explore nearby nature and backpacking trails in the Mount Massive Wilderness. Boating and fishing enthusiasts spend their days at the Twin Lakes Reservoir and Mt. Elbert Forebay.

Our theme this year is “Camping Around the World”.  Each of the meals will feature the cuisine of a different country. Here is a Google Maps link with directions to the campsite from Denver.

May Book Club Update


May book clubHello guys,
I hope you are doing well and enjoying this spring weather.  I just wanted to remind you of our meeting next Monday, May 16.  We will be discussing Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith.  It was written in 1950 and is a psychological thriller about two men who meet and agree to “trade” murders so that neither will be a suspect in the death of their respective victim.  It was adapted as a film in 1951 by director Alfred Hitchcock and is available for viewing on demand.  It is an interesting movie to watch but does not follow the book very closely.  It has been suggested that you read the book before watching the film so it does not confuse you.  As always you are welcome to attend the meeting rather you have read the book or watched the movie or neither.  Socializing with fellow bears is always a pleasure.
For location information and/or other questions, please log in or send an email to bookclub@frontrangebears.org. 
Socializing will begin around 6:30 with the discussion to begin about 7. Light refreshments and water will be provided and door prizes will be awarded. I will send out the information to get into the building this weekend. I hope you can join us as we discuss this mystery. Again, you are welcome to attend even if you haven’t read the book.  

Mark your calendar and plan on socializing with your fellow bears.
