Former crew member, Rube, getting ready for a paddle.
6/21/16 – Each year Sawbill is greeted by thousands of campers/paddlers, each with their own unique background and experience level. Meeting such a wide array of customers and listening to their BWCA experiences is a highlight during my day working at Sawbill. Among the many people I meet some of my most enjoyable encounters are when customers double as former crew members. This past month Rube Rubinstein, former crew member, came for a week long visit to Sawbill. After his time working in the Boundary Waters Rube moved to Hollywood and now works as freelance writer/producer. It is always fun to reunite with and meet past crew members and to hear about their experience working at Sawbill! Thanks for coming to visit Rube!
We are counting down the days until Sawbill’s 60-year reunion celebration and looking forward to visiting with many more former crew members! -Alissa
