Membership - Low Desert Roadrunners

Sue's News - APRIL/MAY 2019

We’re still waiting for the real summer weather.  The lower temperatures are great for walking.  Because of the AVA Convention and travelling, we haven’t planned any Group Walks for June.  Kathy Bundy is our delegate for the AVA Convention. She’s  also going to give a workshop on Meet Ups.  Jean and Larry Vik are going to celebrate the anniversary of Normandy.  Dottie is going to Victoria, Canada to see her new Great Niece.  We wish them safe journey.

Convention Report:  We had a very successful CVA Convention in San Diego.  There were 100 walkers who enjoyed the special trails.  Many compliments were expressed on how well the walks were planned and the ease of getting to the starting points both on the freeway and side streets.  Thank you Jean Vik.  Many thanks to our volunteers—Jo, Debbie, Bob, Kathy C., Linda, Ty, Ginger, Kathy B., Maureen, Jerry, Dottie and Larry V.

Dottie arranged a wonderful Meet and Greet.  Everything was delicious.  A good time was had by all.

The business meeting was Saturday afternoon.  Carl Cordes is our new Pacific Region Director and Suzi Glass is the Deputy.

Reports were given by our VPs- North, Central, South.

Chris Zegelin reported that changes in online sign ups will be happening soon. The information is on the CVA4U website.

New Business:  The Big Give Donation from CVA in 2020 will be $250

Raise the existing club assistance to $1000.

The 2020 CVA Convention will be held at Mt. Shasta May 1-3 hosted by the Shasta Sundial Strollers.

Regional Special Program—Walking with Woody and the Sticks sponsored by the Sacramento Walking Sticks Club.  I sent you all an invitation to participate.  I think it sounds like great fun.  Another regional program is in the planning stages.  It will be walking at College and Universities   It will run from 2020-2024.

Our next meeting will be on Saturday August 10th in Huntington Beach at our annual walk and picnic.  Kathy will give her report from the AVA Convention then.

Have a great summer and keep walking.
