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’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, April 12, 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: Easter – we’ll walk at Flaming Geyser State Park on Easter Saturday, March 31. This will be a guided walk at 10:00 AM. It will feature groomed and forest trails and park road shoulders within the beautiful secluded valley in this fairly new Washington State Park. Trails meander along the banks of the Green River, through open picturesque fields of this former farm and up along the heavily wooded ridge overlooking the valley floor. To park on site you must have a Washington State Park Discover Pass. This will be a good event for folks wanting to try volkssports. Not suitable for strollers or wheelchairs on the 10k course. Suitable for strollers on the 1.2 rated 5k route. More info to come.
