CALLING ALL CAPTAINS …

Mark your calendarGlobe Walk Captains will gather to launch the new season on January 7, 2019. Join us at 1:30 pm at the Field House (Rm. 3) for our information session.

Enjoy refreshments; socialize with other Captains, then hit the track together to launch Globe Walk 2019. Note: The launch is for Captains only. Please make every effort to attend. If you are not available to attend, encourage another member of your team to stand in for you.

We will provide you with the Captain’s Information Handbook to help you with team management and you will have the opportunity to ask questions about your responsibility as a captain, as well as ways to encourage your team during the season.

Let’s make this year’s Globe Walk the best ever!

Another Globe Walk Success …

The Globe Walk Early Bird Lanyard sale was a huge success!  We sold out 3 of 4 time slots and most of the 4th.  We also had about 50 Globe Walkers who chose to take out full SCOA memberships.

Thanks to all of the wonderful volunteers who tamed the chaos:

Jeananne Klein     Darlene Jacobson     Gudrun Lettrari     Jane Richardson  Kimberly Willison

Candace Skrapek     Janet Barnes     Georgine Anderson     Herve Langlois

Special thanks to Joan Cochrane for, not only her time, but for providing $20 Medicine Shoppe coupons for new and existing SCOA members.

And finally – a big shout out to the great SCOA staff who helped from set up to clean up.  It couldn’t be done without them.

It was a great start to a new Globe Walk season.

Hiking outdoors in the winter

I am starting to get exited about the upcoming Globe Walk.  I am busy compiling a list of great trail opportunities.  As I research our National Parks and the trails in and around them, I am continually amazed at how beautiful our country is.

I usually think of the parks as part of summer fun, but many people enjoy being outdoors all year long.

The following link will take you to an article about the “Sask Hiker” blog, and winter hiking.   Since we plan to “hit the trail” starting in January, you might enjoy it!

Thanks to Janet for forwarding the link and sharing it with Globe Walkers
