    Suzanne Birk

    Thank you!  

    Suzanne has stepped down after many, many years of hard work and dedication. Suzanne is one of our many super volunteers. Some of you will know her from Bicycling or possible boating. She has been involved in most of the activities over the years


    Thank you Suzanne for everything you have done for us. See you outside!!

    Columbus Outdoor Pursuits
    is honored to Present



    I want to thank you for the tickets to the movie. It was a very good movie. My wife and I both enjoyed it a lot. Especially since a couple of years ago we were in Alaska in that very place. It is some of the most beautiful land there is. But you are at its mercy and you better be in good health to live there.

    Everything up there wants to kill you and eat you.  

    I really liked that the girl did find a person that she could be safe with. Makes you wonder how many girls are in that situation and can't get out of it and who feels that in some way it is their fault not the guys fault. How wrong they are. And afraid to say anything to anyone and seek help.
