Have you always wanted to do a rope course and zipline adventure? Maybe you just needed a reason to come, and some new friends to explore with? Twifties, the FUN people in their late 40s and UP are having a day out at the Catamount Adventure Park on October 17. Meet other fun people like yourself. Bring your mate, date, friends, kids, (over age 8) or come on your own and meet us!

We will meet at the Catamount Main Lodge, at the Adventure Park Desk at 10:45 a.m. on Sunday, October 17. The rope course will be $41 for ages 12+, $30 for ages 11-12 and $24 for ages 8-9. r.s.v.p. to by Sat. Oct. 16 midnight!

Catamount Adventure Park is a self-guided tour, so you can go at your own pace, with the people you want to be with. (Us!)

With nine courses of varying difficulties you are challenged to cross bridges, climb ladders, obstacles and zip lines. Most people that lead an active lifestyle and are in good health should not have any difficulty in completing many of the ropes courses. You are able to proceed at a pace that is comfortable to you, and you can exit the course at many locations. You are also welcome to leave the ropes course and take a break. Unlike the yellow and green courses, the black courses are very challenging.

How: r.s.v.p. to by Sat. Oct. 16 midnight!

If the weather is "iffy" check with Catamount about our party. Light rain, bring a poncho and we forge ahead. Heavy rain, we raindate til the following week on Sunday, October 24. Catamount tel: 518-325-3200.
