by Chris Brightwell on October 30, 2012

The final Ordeal of 2012 is this weekend at Camp Westmoreland. Click here to get driving directions from Google Maps. Registration opens at 5pm, and things wrap up at 10am on Sunday. The Ordeal starts promptly at 8pm on Friday. If you can’t make that cutoff , let us know and we’ll try to work with you on a late arrival.

The weather this weekend will be cool and dry, with overnight lows in the mid-40s and daytime highs around 70 °F, so please pack accordingly.

ALSO — This weekend will feature the last in our rubber flap series, so be sure to stop by the trading post while you’re in camp.
