Featured Centennial Trip
St George Utah
This Centennial event commemorates a week-long camping trip to Zion led by Ron Graham for Cascadians in 1995.
Daily hikes will be scheduled with varying levels of difficulty, several of them across slickrock. We will hike in Zion National Park, but also visit Snow Canyon State Park, Valley of Fire State Park, and the Red Rock Desert Preserve near St. George.
Centennial Points and Rewards Program
The Cascadians Centennial Planning Committee has decided to resurrect a program of awarding points to members leading and participating in outings during the Centennial Year (2020). This system was initially used for the club's 75th anniversary. Only those events designated by the committee, under the leadership of David Hagen, are eligible for earning points.
The culmination of the program will be at the 2021 January banquet when point totals will be announced and awards presented. So get out there and enjoy this event-filled Centennial Year!
