As the number of Nomads event walk winds down I would like to say a very big thank you to all of the volunteers who have made the walking schedule so successful. We have just a few events left on our calendar of events and I hope you will be able to join us on them.
Also now that September has arrived the Tuesday morning walks have resumed. The schedule for both the event and YRE walks are elsewhere on the website.
Planning is well underway for the 2014 walking schedule. To assist with the walks we are looking for a few more people who would like to step forward to do trail planning. We are hoping to have a session on trail planning and planning tools and their use. If you've ever walked a trail and thought 'I'd like to do this,' here is your chance. Please send me a message and we'll begin setting a date.
Also I'd like to take a few lines to mention some of the special programs run by the CVF. In about a month we will be resuming the Winter Walking Program. The program begins mid-October and runs until the end of March. All CVF walks, except the RLDW, done between those dates can be recorded. From personal experience this has been the incentive I have needed to get out and walk during the winter.
Two other new programs are also in effect. The first is the TransCanada Trail. You may have noticed that many of the 2013 trails were part of this program. Another program on Murals began on July 1st. Any walk sanctioned by the IVV can be counted in this program. Ottawa has many murals, not just those in Vanier. Both of these programs will continue into 2017. Another new program on Community will begin in January. For more information and how to register for these and the other specials programs visit the CVF website at walks.ca.
