As the Lilacs start to bloom Vermont Campgrounds are busily preparing for the opening of campgrounds on Memorial day, just about two weeks from now. Part of that activity is putting together programs for the year. One that you may not be aware of is the Venture Vermont Outdoor Challenge. I discovered it this morning and am excited to get started checking off things to do and accumulating points. There are lots of possibilities for things to do, many of which are appropriate for an olderster like me, but it would be great fun for a family to do as well. Here is how it works:
First, download a VVOC scorecard from this web page.
Now, pick out interesting activities from the nine different categories and have some fun doing them. Take pictures of yourself doing them.
Tally up the points. When you get to 250, submit the scorecard and pictures for free state park access for 2018 and 2019 plus a commemorative gold coin.
This is going to be great fun. I will post about my progress and put a copy of my scorecard here on the website. Perhaps some of you who decide to take the challenge will post your results as comments here as well. Maybe a little friendly competition will develop to see who gets their 250 points first. Deadline is October 15.
