AMOC Trip Lottery
I owe Teens to Trails a great deal of gratitude for arranging for this most spectacular experience. From the peaceful, stream-side trek, to the challenging trails to surrounding summits, this trip had it all. Thanks to Teens To Trails for making this happen for the Bucksport Outing Club!" - Matt Morrisson Bucksport OC Advisor.
The AMOC Wnter Trip Lottery is now open!
(Scroll down for the entry form)
It will be drawn Thursday December 22nd at noon.
To enter the lottery you must be logged on with your Outing Club T3 User account and be a member of AMOC.
Below you will find the description and details of each trip. Some have set dates, some are flexible, some are free of charge and others at a discounted rate. All trips require that you provide your own transportation, food and outdoor gear unless otherwise noted. It is a pretty sweet deal! All we ask in return is for you to keep us posted on how the trip goes and share stories and pictures so that we can share them with our supporters and in our newsletters. You may enter for as many trips as you like, but can only be drawn for one.
