Kathy's News - January 2020

Hi, Welcome to our FIRST Online Newsletter. Happy 2020!!

Many of our club members are challenging ourselves for the AVA Centurion Award….100  sanctioned walks for 2020. So let’s get walking our 28 Year Round or any day walks. All in all, we have over 50 YR walks within our Southern CA Region. So, put on your walking shoes and Let’s Get Out There.

We have Scheduled events or traditional Club walks to look forward to.  Each month, usually a Saturday.  we hold a ONE Day Club Walk with a Start time between 8-12 noon. Anaheim Hills Traditional Walk held Saturday Feb.22.  La Verne Traditional Walk held Saturday March 21 and April 4 is Earth Day at Vail Ranch Headquarters in Temecula.  Mark Your Calendars and SHOW UP!

Also our annual CVA  (California Volkssports Asso.) Convention is the first weekend in May hosted by the Shasta Sundial Strollers. This year’s 3 day event will be held in Mt. Shasta. Get your reservations in Now.

Santa Rosa Plateau has been closed since the devastating fire on Sept 5. Good News, Sylvan Meadows, the second trail head up the road from the Visitor Center is Now OPEN. It is a multi-use trail for horses, bikes, and dogs.   This is a meadow, so there is an easy 5 k trail. Maps are at the trail head. The red marks are closed. The BOLD black marks on the map are open trails. We will have a Group Walk on March 3. Meet at Baron’s market at 9 AM if interested. We can carpool to the trail head. We will pass some burn areas. For more info about the trails at the plateau

As an organizer of Meetup Volkswalking in Southern California Open to Everyone I pay $89 every 6 months. Any of you that use my site for our monthly or weekly events please consider a donation to me to defry this cost. Thanks in advance. Many of you have joined our club LDR and enjoy our group walks.

Ok I have another ASK…. Please be patient with me if I forget your name when I meet you on the trail. My head is soooo FULL of New information about LDR club ins and outs, paperwork and forms. I am a slow learner. It takes TIME. I’ll get it.  My computer is OLD and so am I.  Many of you are old timer roadrunners so please introduce yourself and welcome our new members.  We need Each and Every One of you to continue to enjoy our walks and Bring your Friends.

Welcome to Florence Doud and Esmeralda Damico our newest members.  Please Pray for our new Treasurer……..Jo Billman that she gets back on the trail soon after her 2nd knee surgery.
