NOTE: Please remember that when Lunch Bunch is planned at a restaurant, walk-ins cause difficulties for the restaurant. So if you are planning to attend, you must let the organizer of that month's Lunch Bunch know of your interest in being included, well in advance of the date.
WEEKLY WALKING GROUP
Next Walking Group Walk is:
March 30 – Hike! Harvey Manning Trailhead - 5 miles.
April 6 – Easy Walk!
April 20 – Easy Walk!
May 4 – Easy Walk!
May 11 – Hike!
May 18 – Easy Walk!
May 25 – Memorial Day - No walk!
NOTE: The IWC Walking Group walks every Monday starting at 9 a.m. sharp. It is our hope that with different walks or hikes offered every Monday, you will find a walk or two that fits your interests, abilities, and schedule.
We don weather-appropriate wear and amble forth, light rain/sprinkle or shine. Torrential rains, ice, and snow, however, are another matter and most likely will draw a cancellation for the week.
We make sure that at least one walk each month is an easier/shorter walk that is most likely flat and paved. The walks that are a bit longer can usually be adapted for those who wish a shorter walk.
Our HIKES! are never technical, but they will require more effort than the easier walks and include hills and more uneven and possibly slippery walking surfaces. We will make necessary adjustments if a trail report indicates poor conditions.
Everyone joining the walks does so at their own risk. Only you can determine which walks are best suited to your abilities and interests. We hope that you will carefully consider the details we provide for each walk, including trail descriptions and distances, and only join us on walks you can safely and comfortably complete.
Please see the letter attached to the monthly newsletter for more details on the Walking Group, and make sure you are on our email list for weekly updates and last-minute changes to the walks. Only those on our list will receive the weekly details and any last-minute changes or cancellations. Also, we ask that you let us know if you think you will be joining us on a particular walk so we know who we are looking for at the trailhead.
For more information and details, contact Katie Emrick or Michele Hendrikse DuBois through the Issaquah Women's Club at firstname.lastname@example.org or see your IWC membership handbook to contact Katie or Michele directly.
TRAVEL GROUP/HAPPY HOUR
