The Emerald City Wanderers
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, June 14, 2018.
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.
Location: Burien Roundtable Pizza, 15730 – 1st Avenue South. Supper (no-host)at 6ish PM; meeting at 7:00 PM.
Next Event: July 4 – Independence Day. We will walk in Magnolia this year, enjoying panoramic views of Elliott Bay, and then along the Bay, passing 4-Mile Rock and through several neighborhoods. This is our annual kick-off to this great holiday. It’s a guided or map walk. Groups will be formed and guided for those who wish. This will be a good walk for anyone interested in seeing what Volkswalking is all about. Walkers must start between 8:30 and 9:00, at the West Magnolia Playfield. Because of a lengthy staircase (down) the 10K route walk is not suitable for strollers or wheelchairs, though we can provide an optional, no-stair walk if you ask.
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.
