There was a nice turnout at Mike’s visitation Wednesday night. Thanks to everyone who came out to remember his life and his many contributions to CVT. I know Ginny and the rest of Mike’s family really appreciated it. If you’d like to donate to either of Mike’s charities (Richmond Animal League or Henrico Humane Society), there are links on the home page. At some point I suspect we will have a special hike or backpacking trip in his memory. We will keep you posted on that.
Saturday’s hikes have been rescheduled due to the rainy forecast. My Shenandoah Sampler has been pushed back to next Saturday, 4/29, and Leigh’s White Blaze Trail Daze #3 has moved to Saturday, 5/6. If you can’t make the new dates, please update your RSVP and submit a Refund Request so I’ll know to credit your trail buck. 🙂 I’m keeping an eye on the forecast for Sunday in case we have to reschedule this month’s James River hike.
And the big news is…CVT Beach Week II is officially on the calendar!!! We had a blast last year, and this year should be no different. Lori and Annie have booked a fabulous oceanfront beach mansion with tons of amenities (heated pool and hot tub included!), and the price can’t be beat. The dates are 10/14 – 10/21/17, so mark your calendar and sign up early to get first choice of bedrooms! Currently they are only offering a full week option, but partial week options may be available in the future if needed. Thanks Lori and Annie (and Carole too)!
Newly Added Events:
- Sunset Hike: Forest Hill Park – Wednesday, 4/26
- CVT “Gappy Trails” 2017: Fridley Gap – Saturday, 6/3
