We are getting ready for 2013 and a very special year of walking for the fun of it!
As many of you already know we must begin now to produce a schedule for the following year to ensure our walk events are published in the "World Book of Walking". This book is published and ready for 1 January each year and in this case for the 2013 walk events.
To ensure we meet this deadline and especially for the very special program that has been developed by our club for next year;
The club president Elsie Buck and Rollie have taken on a project to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the founding of Fortress Louisbourg.
Organizations such as ours had been invited to produce a program of celebration for this anniversary.
The National Historic site has been very helpful in this regard and they are pleased with the program we have developed.
Other members of our club such as Dianna MacDonald, Barbara Thistle and Cal Thistle have contributed their time and resources to ensure we will have a Luncheon, Picnic and a Meet and Greet during this long weekend of walking.
Our club treasurer Lucy Nardini will be registering our dinner guests etc.
Other members have been asked to be walk leaders, sweeps. If you would like to help out during the weekend please contact Elsie.
Please help your club to make this a successful weekend by joining your friends on the walk events and coming out to the dinner, picnic, luncheon, Meet and Greet or at least to one or more of the events.
The long weekend of 28 June - 01 July 2013 has been set aside for this walk adventure in and around Fortress Louisbourg.
Due to the many other programs at the Fortress we had to make this our special weekend at the historical site.
Very shortly we will begin to advertise these walk events to the remainder of the Canadian Volkssport Federation and to our friends in the USA and across Europe. We want you the club members to be informed before these events are published in the CVF VOLKSSPORT Newsletter.
The remainder of the schedule for the same year is still being worked on and if you have walked a new trail that you want to introduce the club too, then please come forward with the details and the walk committee will place this on the schedule for the year. We are always in need for new walk leaders! We need you the members to come up with trails and walks as well.
2013 will also be the CBIH's turn to host the 42k Marathon event, so the above walks will be a good practice as we will put on about 52k for the weekend.
Please find attached three (3) .pdf's, brochures and an explanation of what the Island Hoppers will be doing for the Louisbourg300 celebrations.
Brochures can be sent in .rtf (rich text file) if needed
At a later date the brochure will be available at all walk events.
Thank You for your support!
