It’s almost time again for this great event. Sponsored by the Butler Outdoor Club, but members and non-members are welcome. People come from all over to gather together for this fun-filled weekend of activities. Base camp is Breakneck Campground but camping is optional, along with optional meal choices. (This is located near McConnells Mill State Park and Moraine State Park)
Activities take place all over with a variety to pick from each day: trail, road and mt. biking, hikes of various levels, canoe and kayak trips on lakes and streams, float raft trip, horseback riding, sailing, nature walks, rock climbing and rappeling. We also have fun workshops such as: Build Your Own Sailboat, Make & Learn to Play a Canjo, Yoga, Birding, Nature Photography, Photo Hike, Wildflowers, Long Distance Hiking/Running and a canoe game called “Dead Fish Polo”. We plan canoe & kayak classes. There will be excursions to historical places, bike ride through the railroad history with museum stops, demo with historic oil pump and hike, boat tour of Lake Arthur, and grist mill tours. Don’t forget the children. (free registration) We have kids activities programs and family activities. There is something here for everyone! Come for the day or the whole weekend.
Activities begin 9:00 AM each day. Leaders and Instructors meet you at the campground where trip signs are set up in the campground field. They will get your group together, set up car pools, if needed, and off you go for the day! There are also AM and PM activities, but everything leaves from the campground. A few activities may take place at the campground.
Friday night is a Weiner/Roast picnic, followed by evening entertainment. Sat. night is a Pig Roast, followed by evening entertainment. (Sunday night dinner and entertainment as well.)
There will also be a Gear Exchange Flea Market throughout the weekend, so you may want to clean out your attic to sale or trade something you find. If you know an outfitter or outdoor store that may want to get involved, let them know.
Go to the Extravaganza website for details and to register. It’s best to do this asap because activities may fill up, and you don’t want to be disappointed! There is also a discount for Earlybird Registration before April 15. (Late fee after May 15.)
