It’s that time of the year when we begin planning for the next season (2013) of walk events.

Please join us at the

McConnell Library, 50 Falmouth Street, Sydney B1P 6X9

Time: 6:30pm, Tuesday 10 July 2012

This is your chance to help the walk committee to develop the “Schedule of Walk Events” for 2013.
Come out to the scheduling meeting with some new suggestions of where we should walk and it would be very helpful if you have already walked the suggested trail and know the address of the Start Point, especially the Postal Code that is required for all CVF walk Start Points. This is to help out any visitors to the island.
Even if you do not have any suggestions at this time, why not drop in anyway and find out how we go about working out an “Annual Schedule of Events”
Remember our mandate is to walk in all four counties of Cape Breton Island at least once each year.
We walk on most trails and countries roads that are reasonably accessible to all of our club members.
The CBIH sponsor 5 permanent or Year Round Walk Events that we insert into the schedule at various times of the year.
Walk events are 10k or more routes with a possibility of a 5k for those persons who require a shorter distance. Shorter routes are not to be less then 5k however these can be increased to 7k depending on the terrain etc.
Please take sometime to read the CVF Trail Rating system and once the paper work is completed it’s all about Fun, Fitness and Friendship!

Why is the CBIH schedule of events prepared and completed so early and/or so far in advance?
We have an International and National obligated deadline to meet; this is the responsibility and procedure that must be followed when you are affiliated with the (IVV) International Federation of Sports and the (CVF) Canadian Volkssport Federation. Our walk events are published online with both organizations, and in the “World Book of Walking”; this is published annually in January, hence the reason(s) to prepare early.
