Subject: [CRVC] Central Oregon Adventure
Back at the November meeting -- remember that, so long ago? -- we talked about going to Central Oregon as an opportunity to become familiar with those walks, as well as marking off 5 CRVC walks in the 20 Walks in 2016 game. (These walks will also qualify for OSTVA's challenge.)
We will be doing the walk at Eagle Crest in Redmond the afternoon of Thursday, January 7th. Friday and Saturday we will do walks in Bend (2) and Sunriver. On the way home Sunday, we will walk in Sisters.
Since there are 5 walks and 4 days, you will get to do 2 walks one day. (There are not 5k options for all of the walks.)
People have been making reservations at the Days Inn (free breakfast) in Bend for Thursday through Saturday nights.
Carpooling is a great idea.
I am not going to plan meal times. If someone has a particular place they'd like us to go one night, they can be in charge of counting heads and making reservations.
Hoping you'll join us!
