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’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 8, 2017.

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.

LocationBurien Roundtable Pizza, 15730 – 1st Avenue South. Supper (no-host)at 6ish PM; meeting at 7:00 PM.
