Upcoming Walks

*************************************** Please Note ***************************************

Regarding start times for Thursday morning walks:

Recently there has been a good deal of discussion as to when the Thursday morning
walks actually begin, as opposed to the announced starting time of 10:00 AM. The
CVC Board has considered the issue, and has decided that it is desirable to have
people begin walking promptly at 10:00 AM. In order to make this possible, Thursday
walkers are asked to be at the start point at 9:45 AM to allow time for everyone to
register and do anything else needful so the group can begin walking at 10:00 AM.

Start times for Remote Start walks:

Some walks have the registration point and the walk start point at separate
locations. These walks are called "remote start walks."

For remote start walks, please arrive earlier than 9:45 AM at the registration point,
so as to allow time for everyone to register, etc. The group will plan to leave the
registration point at 9:50 AM to drive to the walk start point. It is hoped that this
will make it possible to begin walking promptly at 10:00 AM for remote start walks.

In 2017, CVC will have six remote start walks: Olympia Evergreen State College,
Olympia Willapa Trail, Tenino, Hoquiam, Port Gamble Historic, and Belfair Theler Wetlands.
Some other clubs' walks, suchas the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge walk and the DuPont walks,
which we do from time to time,are also remote start walks, so please look for this
information in the walk listings.

Since starting to walk promptly at 10:00 AM is important to some people, the CVC Board
hopes that the above procedures will accomodate them. Your cooperation is requested.

Carpooling disclaimer:

The carpooling information is offered as a service for those who may wish to carpool.
It is not a guarantee that carpooling will occur for every walk. There can be
many reasons why people may wish to carpool for one walk and not for another. If the
designated departure time has arrived and no carpool has formed, please drive yourself
to the walk start point.
