Turnabout is fair play

The Central New York theater community is close knit and small, a group of talented artists who are so close they refer to each other as family. So, it’s not surprising, given the especially small pool of male actors and qualified directors, that they sometimes direct each other.

All good points of safety information, especially to “reach out to your local club for information on the trails” whose online website includes the club’s telephone (and often a snow phone) listing for trail conditions.
