There will be more changes to the current events list, but I want to mention two corrections to the latest Future Events List (FEL):
- The Over the Hill Gang "DuPont - National Trails Day" event listed on June 6 is postponed to a future date to be determined.
- The Willamette Wanderers Wilsonville Traveling Guided Walk listed on May 21 is moved to June 18 and hopefully can occur that date.
Our region's FEL is primarily a tool to coordinate events between clubs. The best source of event status is the Event Sanction Request (ESR) on the AVA website. I'm asking all clubs to ensure your ESR be kept up to date reflecting the status of your walks, especially those in the next couple months. For walkers, it's more important now than ever to verify event status on the AVA website before venturing out to avoid showing up to a canceled or postponed year round or traditional event.
As an example, our Alaska club is reviewing their plans for their seasonal events, as tourist travel will be severely limited and several walkbox hosts are closed or status is unknown, so they may opt to cancel the events or put them on the online start box. If your plans include travel to Alaska this summer you'll want to monitor their ESRs to determine which walks are available and how.
