“AUF GEHT’S” translates as “let’s go,” but is also used as a battle cry. In our sense, it means let’s go to the mountains and hike and explore and party (the German way). The weekend of October 13th will be filled with spectacular hikes, authentic German food (Sauerbraten anyone?), traditional Kaffee und Kuchen (Sunday afternoon, of course!), a nature scavenger hunt, a dance party (Saturday night). skinny dipping at Flora lake (a long Naturefriend’s tradition) and a cook off between the two clubs (the dish will be announced). This is an important fundraiser for the Heidelmann lodge and we would love to see as many SF and Oakland members of all ages as possible.
Every year on the first weekend in September the club hosts a work weekend to prepare our beloved lodge near Donner Summit for the winter. Annual tasks include cutting and stacking firewood, cleaning, painting, and general maintenance. Skilled workers are always needed, but there are plenty of general cleaning and organizing tasks for everyone.
We work hard but we always have a great time together over the weekend.
Don’t miss out annual club softball game at Summit Fest. Everyone gets to play so bring your mitt. After a cookout for lunch at the field following the game, you’re on your own. A quick dip in Donner Lake is often appropriate. Saturday night, the charcoal grill is lit and we feast on a wine, steak and salad at the Lodge.
