Heads Up Arrowmen!
The forecast this weekend is calling for an 80% chance of snow with an accumulation of 1 to 3 inches. In the event that a decision would have to be made to cancel Winter Banquet, we will post the info here on eswau.net and on Facebook and Twitter as soon as possible.
That said – there are no plans at this time to cancel and we are moving forward on production of what will be an awesome evening of fun and fellowship for our lodge.
