You are WELCOME to join us for Dinner and Drinks at Hungry Jack Lodge on Saturday, May 21st at 7:30pm. We’re gathering to celebrate the upcoming voyage of The Voyageur Hudson Bay Expedition Crew. The trip is part of Celebrating Voyageurs 50 Years of Promoting Wilderness Adventures, 1961-2011. The crew is scheduled to depart from Grand Portage on Monday, May 23rd and with a little luck and a lot of perseverance they will make it to Hudson Bay by mid-August.
The Crew consists of past Voyageur Crew members Andrew Spaeth, Adam Maxwell and Mike Swenson. The 4th paddler, Will Tanner, worked at Wilderness Canoe Base. They’ve been strategizing, packing and planning their trip all winter long and are beyond excited to embark.
It’s an expensive endeavor and Voyageur along with a couple of other sponsors are taking care of many of the expenses. There are still plenty of bills to pay and you can help support them and their once in a lifetime adventure by donating online or by coming to Hungry Jack Lodge on Saturday evening.
We would love to have you share their enthusiasm and learn a little more about their adventure. They will all be at Hungry Jack Lodge, along with Mike and I and other past and present Voyageur Crew members. We know there will be good company and there will certainly be good food. On the menu is salad, chicken for the entrée and dessert. We’ll even buy you a drink or two to show our thanks.
If you know for sure you want to come then please email us at email@example.com or give us a call at Voyageur, 388-2224. You can let whoever answers the phone know your name and how many people will be in your party. Then we can give Hungry Jack a guesstimate of the number of folks planning to attend. The cost for the dinner is $35 and a portion of it will go to the Hudson Bay Expedition Crew. Be sure to check out the website for more information and photos of the guys. http://www.VoyageurHudsonBayExpedition.com
