The Susquehanna Chapter meets once a month on the third Wednesday in the evening. Most meetings are held at the Elm Park United Methodist Church rooms at 401 Chestnut Street in Oneonta starting at 6 P.M.with a covered dish supper. For those not attending the supper, the program starts at 7 P.M. And it is followed by the business meeting. All interested persons may attend a meeting, both members and non-members. Your executive committee, wishing to reduce our carbon footprint, encourages members from outside Oneonta to carpool to meetings and activities.


Sep 19 - The ADK meeting will be September 19 with a pot luck dinner at 6 p.m. (bring a dish to share as well as your own table service) followed at 7 p.m. by a presentation by Rick Brockway - Secrets of the Catskill Mountains.

Bio - I have lived on our family farm in the Town of Laurens for all but 6 years of my life. There my love of the outdoors began. After college I took a teaching position in the little Adirondack town of Wells in southern Hamilton County and my fondness of those magnificent mountains was nurtured.

I’ve spent a lifetime hunting, fishing and exploring. My journeys have taken me from Alaska and the Canadian Arctic to Florida and from the Rocky Mountains to the mountains and forests of New Hampshire, Maine and New Brunswick. I was a licensed Adirondack guide for more than 30 years, leading many “sports” into the backcountry in search of huge whitetails, bears and trophy-sized brook trout.

When I turned 60, I celebrated it by hiking the Northville-Placid Trail. At 70 I completed the Catskill 3500. I have summited numerous Adirondack peaks but cherish a little more solitude than can be found in the High Peaks today. My many experiences have been shared with many loyal readers of my column in Oneonta’s Daily Star for 18 or 19 years. I have also been published in 12 different outdoor magazines during my career.

I look forward to sharing some of stories with you at your next meeting.
