The Emerald City Wanderers
Seattle, Washington

Volkssporting is an adventure in fun, fitness, and friendship, featuring non-competitive walking, cycling, swimming, cross-country skiing and other sporting events.  The Emerald City Wanderers is a volkssporting club devoted to hosting  events on and around holidays – New Year’s, Easter, Independence Day, Labor Day and Halloween.  We are the Holiday Club!!!  We’d love to have you join our club and enjoy the camaraderie and good times associated with our events.

Next General Membership Meeting is Thursday, January 10, 2019

Join us for supper and socializing. We would love to have you join us. Dues are $5 per year, which entitles you to work at our walks (some reward, eh?) and to good company and fun. We are a diverse group that enjoys walking as well as each other’s company. More info: send a note to Mike.

Special Alert for Easter Walk:  It is likely that our Easter (Saturday) Walk will return to the former Weyerhaeuser campus and the Rhododendron Garden in 2019.  We’re working on details.

And, Coming Next Year:  We are working with several other clubs to offer a series of events dedicated to the 10th Anniversary of the LINK rail system.  These will feature walks that can be done from a number of the LINK stations, so participants can park where it’s convenient for them and then ride LINK to the start!  Stay tuned.

NATIONAL PARK ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL PROGRAM: In 2016, the National Park Service celebrated its Centennial – 100 Years! The Emerald City Wanderers club sponsors an AVA Special Program to honor that Centennial.  More details here.
