The CB Island Hoppers will be in Glace Bay on 24 August (see information below).

As the Trails Coordinator for CBIH it is one of the responsibilities  to prepare our Year Round Events and to ensure the routes we have selected are the  distances we have advertised them to be, or within a tolerable +- of the desired distance. We also like to have our trails/routes to be interesting to our visitors going past museums, town halls, historical locations, and parks or other locations as lighthouses and coastal routes.

Tomorrow Sunday 17 August I will be out on the trail selecting/proving a new route or modifying the route we have developed over the past 17 years in Glace Bay. - Time for a change!

I am looking for volunteers and those interested in becoming part of the Walk Committee to help reorganize the remainder of the Year Round Events now called Permanent Trails,  to walk with me s Sunday 17 August, 2:00 PM, starting at the parking lot next door to the COOP Gas Bar in Glace Bay.
The 5k route in Glace Bay will definitely be redone so that participants do not have retrace the route back to the Start Point, it will be a 5k loop style walk making it much more compatible to the original IVV/CVF format walk events. We will need a separate Walk Leader for the 5k route as required by our rules and regulations when doing a Group Guided Walk Event.

Once Glace Bay is completed we will start on the remainder of our Permanent Walks in Sydney, Louisbourg, North Sydney and Baddeck - in some cases we will simply rewrite the direction and try to find better maps for our visitors.

Call 902-849-0747 or email if you would like to join me for Sunday 17 August for the pre-walk event. If you collect IVV stamps this is a good opportunity to add more distance to your books!
