Welcome to June! Looks like a great month ahead with ideal weather for walking. We're off to Brooks, OR, tomorrow for the Fitwalker event. Wish we could get up to Dupont as well, but can't make it to both. It's really good to have options on any weekend to go north, south, or stay local for an event. However, there's always room in the calendar for more events.
Several notes to go along with the list:
First, Lilac City has closed the Spokane Downtown and River Walk (YR 0796) for the year. There is just too much construction going on to keep the walk open.
Next, you'll note that the ESVA event for Sept 2019 is listed as tentative. Both CRVC from OR and ESVA are planning multi-day events that month and we're trying to find a way to make it work for them and you. I've attached a new spreadsheet to help us start looking at our bigger events to help schedule more effectively and find windows of opportunity. Please look it over and provide feedback on what your club might be planning. Also am interested in hearing the long range plans from our Canadian friends. You'll note that the odd years are full and even years have a lot of room available, so some re-balancing is needed.
Next week I'm off to Albany, NY, for the NEC meeting and a chance to meet with the next convention committee to continue our efforts to build a spectacular event. If it's not on your calendar yet, you're going to want to jot it down for June 2019.
