Catskill Weekend 2017

Catskill Weekend 2017 September 22-24

After a year “off” hosting the Peck Foray we are going to congregate for our Catskill Weekend at Soyuzivka (Soy-you-`ziff-ka) in Kerhonkson, NY. Soyuzivka is a Ukrainian Village Resort in the heart of the Shawangunks west of New Paltz.

Our Society has spent many an autumn hunting mushrooms in the area and we hope this autumn will be as productive as it has been in years past.

The weekend begins with a Friday night travelers’ buffet supper at the Main House Dining Room where all meals will be served.

We have reserved the Kiev Lodge, a beautiful house that sleeps 18-20 people in single & double rooms. The house features a spacious living room and a balcony offering a magnificent view of the Catskills to the north.

Saturday starts with breakfast, followed by a foray in nearby forests. We’ll split up into a couple or three groups. After a lunch, we’ll do more foraging on the Souyuzivka land. We’ll have a mycology session in the late afternoon followed by Saturday night dinner. Sunday we’ll have a breakfast before breaking for our return trip to New York with stops along the way for mushroom hunts in the Shawangunks.

The cost of the weekend will be $245.00 for single occupancy $195.00 for double occupancy. Prices are per person and include food and lodging.
