In preparation for the upcoming winter months, if you become a new member this month, either with full payment or by starting our monthly partial payment plan, we will enter you into a drawing for a Weekend Winter Getaway Package. You and up to five others can escape to the Big Woods Lake Cabin in Cedar Falls. This two-bedroom cabin comes with a kitchenette, living room, and bathroom with hot and cold running water. Head to the cabin on a snowy winter weekend and enjoy free ski and snowshoe rental for your whole crew. In addition, you will have a package of goodies to help keep your tummies warm and filled including hot chocolate, red wine, and some healthy snacks. Special thanks to Black Hawk County Parks, Europa Cycle & Ski, and the Runners Flat for their generous donations to make this package possible.
