2019 Hike for Hospice Update


The 2019 Hike for Hospice event will be on May 5, 2019 in Laurier Woods. This
is an opportunity for people to enjoy the beauty of Nature!

This is a short event. We will meet at 0930ET in the parking lot at the end
of Brule Street to give out the SMEAC, assign checkpoints, and then head out
to our respective spots in Laurier Woods. During the event I will be roving
throughout the trails. The hike itself starts at 1100ET, and most
participants are expected to be clear by 1300ET. Last year we had some people
start their walk before 1030ET.

Run off the Grid 2018


Run-Off-the-Grid is this Saturday, Sept 29, 2018.

Please bring a lunch as this has been difficult in the past
logistically. Dinner will be served at the start/finish. It is catered
by gd2go , and is always very, very good!

Please dress appropriately for the forecast weather (cool, chance of rain). Also, our hosts have encouraged an extremely environmental event and as such request that we bring our own mess kits for dinner. Plate, bowl, cup and utensils please :)
