Knot Tying 101

The most useful knots for outdoor activities

What do you do if your shoelace breaks on a hike?  Or you need to rig a rain fly between trees while camping? Or if you need a longer rope?

And how many times have you tied a knot that you just couldn't get out?

Skills in knot tying can come in handy during a variety of important activities, including boating, camping, kayaking, hiking, and knots are often useful for typical household functions.

By better understanding some of the common knot types and their uses, you'll have more insights as to the importance of knot tying; such as certain knots do better under tension than others. Because wouldn't it be nice to be able to actually get your knots out when you're done? ??

During the picnic, we'll go through how to tie the most useful knots for outdoor activities with step by step instructions. At the end, we'll play a game to show off your new skill and there just might be a prize for the winner!
