This year's annual meeting features keynote speaker, Cary Griffith, writer of "Lost in the Wild," "Gunflint Burning," and three other books set in Minnesota. Cary will be speaking and showing slides of the Jason Rasmussen story, a hiker who lost his way on the Powwow Trail in 2001. Join us at the BWAC annual meeting to hear Cary and other updates from BWAC.

I will contact each of you that sign up to coordinate details of which activities you are available for.
