OLD TOWN LOUISBOURG TRAIL 18 MAY

GUIDED WALK EVENT  IN " OLD TOWN"

WALK HAS BEEN COMPLETED! SEE PHOTO GALLERY AND FACEBOOK FOR COMMENTS AND PICTURES!

There seems to be some confusion about our next Walk Event Start Point, hopefully I can clear this up. 

Direction to the trail head in "Old Town Louisbourg":
Drive out to Louisbourg on Hwy 22
Continue along Main St. Louisbourg to Pecks Store and then turn LEFT on Wolfe Street going towards and passed the Fortress Main Entrance Visitors Centre and continue straight to our new Start Point.

(A CBIH WALK SIGN WILL BE POSTED AT OR NEAR THE TOWN FOUNTAIN LOCATED IN FRONT OF PECK'S STORE)

Note that Wolfe Street and Kennington Cove Road merge together as Kennington Cove Road at or near the Main Entrance parking lot area.
Continue passed the Royal Battery (another one of our former Start Points),  about another 400m, and the parking lot for our walk event is on the RIGHT side of the road.

NEW YORK BUS TOUR



DARTMOUTH VOLKSMARCH CLUB GOING TO NEW YORK!
H i Rollie -
Could you please send out the following message to your club members: 

Dear members of the  Cape Breton Island Hoppers  -
As most of you probably know, Lily and I are arranging a volks-bus tour this September; the exciting agenda is fully covered in the brochure.
We would like to have 3 or 4 more participants to firm up our numbers for the tour.
There will be easier walks each day for those who find 10 km events a bit too much.  (There will also be opportunities for super-walkers at a couple locations.)
If you have any question, please feel free to respond to this message or give us a call at 902-466-4421
Lionel and Lily Conrod
The brochure for this trip is available upon request from bretonhoppers@hotmail.com or from Lionel Conrod as per the phone numbers above
