 The following message has been sent to all members who participated in the weekend events in Miramichi NB
From: Sandy Hickey
Subject: Miramichi weekend
Hi everyone,

I just wanted to extend a thank you to all of your club members who braved “Arthur” and came up to support the Miramichi weekend.   Unfortunately, when things are planned a year ahead of time, you never know what nature is going to throw at you and this was an excellent example.   Looking back at it now, I believe it will go down in the history books of DVC and everyone’s memory as a “hell of a weekend”.  If you don’t know already, we got 122 mm of rain on Saturday so it was quite an accomplishment to be out walking in that, especially the 10 km Sat morning in Newcastle.  The aft walk wasn’t as  bad and really enjoyable.  More of a walk than a test of endurance.  We had a great boat cruise Sunday morning and the Sackville walk was beautiful.

So thank you to all of you again.  I hope to do this again in a few years so keep it in mind.  If anyone wants to take a trip up there and do some walking I can send you the directions for the walks and you could do them on your own. 

Take care,
