Lake Metigoshe State Park to host Wild Outdoor Women
Lake Metigoshe State Park is hosting a Wild Outdoor Women event on Feb. 19-21, 2021. The WOW event is for ladies over the age of 16 who are looking to learn or improve on skills associated with several of North Dakota’s outdoor recreational activities. Women of all skill levels are encouraged to register and take advantage of an opportunity that enables them to try new recreational activities, gain confidence, try out equipment, refine skills and meet other outdoor enthusiasts.
Event activities include snowshoe lacing, tracking on snowshoes, carving spearfishing decoys, paper quilling, watercolor painting, ski shoeing, fat tire biking, crocheting winter beanies and cross-country skiing.
Participants have the option to register for a single session, multiple sessions, or take in all of the sessions throughout the weekend. Online registration opened at noon, Dec. 16, via Ticketleap. Registrants purchase tickets representing the sessions, specific activities, and any desired meals for the event. Session fees range from $15-$130, depending upon the activity and affiliated costs. The event will follow North Dakota Smart Restart as well as CDC guidelines. Dorms will not be available for overnight use but will be available for participants to utilize as a space to warm around the indoor fireplaces as needed throughout the weekend. Grab and go meal options will be available for the weekends’ breakfasts and for Saturday’s lunch. Participants should plan to bring masks to wear for all indoor sessions in addition to the outdoors in situations where proper distancing cannot be achieved. Lake Metigoshe State Park is located 14 miles northeast of Bottineau, along the Lake Loop Road, just off Highway 43. For more information contact Amy Schimetz at 263-4514.
