BEEP BEEP BULLETIN

Kathy’s News August/September 2022

Greetings fellow walkers. The heat continues to rise but our year-round are at a low count. Get out early and enjoy our many beach walks for cooler walks.

Our club meeting in Canyon Lake on July 9th was fun. Thanks to the 16 club members that showed up for the meeting and lunch in a beautiful setting looking at water. Thanks again to Maureen and Gary for providing their home and water works.

 

Looking forward to seeing many of you at our first LUNA Moon walk or Bike event on Friday August 12th. Sign up between 6:30 and 7:30 pm at 29629 La Ladera Park in Menifee. Please wear BLING with FLASHY LIGHTS to be seen on the Salt Creek Trail. Starting out it will be light but you will be returning by the moonlight. We will celebrate our return with moon pies and water.

 

Restrooms available at the park. Bring your friends to enjoy our first 5k moonwalk. We will be stamping IVV books with Menifee Valley stamp. Everyone pays $3 for this awesome event

 

Enjoy Fall colors in Crestline around Lake Gregory on September 24th. Sign ups between 8:30 and 9:30 in parking area of Goodwin Market 24089 Lake Gregory Dr. Walk qualifies for WWV program. So get up early and enjoy the drive to Crestline.

 

October is Scarecrow Festival weekend hosted by Central Coast Beach Boardwalkers in Cambria. You don’t want to miss this. Two walks Saturday and Sunday. Check out beachboardwalkers.org for more information, or click here to download flier.

 

A note about meet-up Volkswalking in So. CA. Open to Everyone. I started this over 9 yrs ago. After my husband passed in 2012 I didn’t know if I would continue volkswalking. Many of you joined LDR and enjoy our events.  I post many outings that are not IVV events. Community evening walks, music festival etc. These get posted before Beep Beep comes to you. So everyone is welcome to go to meet up for like-minded events. All of our scheduled LDR club walks are posted on this meet up. Many people all over the world belong to meetups for gardening, wine tasting and other social adventures. It is Not a dating service as many think it is.

 

Be sure to share our Awesome Sport with your friends and anyone looking for interesting walks.
See you on the trail.
Keep Walking and Biking
Your Fearless Leader Kathy
