Wednesday Evening Walk - Green Lake

Who is up for a lap around Green Lake in the dark.  It is not well lit all the way around so lights on your dogs and yourself and a flashlight are highly recommended so we can keep an eye on each other.

I need to have at least 5 others in attendance for me to feel comfortable doing this.

Happy hour at Rosita's Mexican Grill for a margarita beforehand or afterwards?  Let me know which you prefer.

How good are you at juggling a leash or two, a flashlight, a poop bag, and an umbrella while wearing gloves?  Not sure, then come walk with us on Wednesday evenings.  You will get plenty of practice.

  Let's continue meeting in the evening for a walk.  We will just have to stick to lighted streets and not trails.  Be sure that you are equipped to be seen in the waning light.  Bring a flashlight and/or put lights on yourself and your dogs.  I use Nite Ize Lights.  They are great little lights (come in a variety of colors) that either flash or have a steady beam and clip nicely onto the dog's collar and my zipper pull.  They are widely available at most pet stores (next to nature, All the Best) and drug stores (Bartell's).  I am open to suggestions about where you like to walk so if you have a favorite route let me know and I may post it.

Dogs in attendance must be leashed and have their owner present.

We will make it a priority to walk as a group.  Paces may be a little different but I will stop along the way for others to catch up.  Everybody needs to watch out for others.  Let somebody know if you need a break or are going to turn around/

 Please check email or this site the day of the event for any last minute changes or cancellations due to weather, road closures, illness, etc.  I will try to post last minute details by 7am.

    Another great Wednesdsay evening walk. Good company, just enough dogs and no rain. Always interesting to do a regular daytime walk in the dark. It wasn't too scary. :) Thanks for coming out and joining me. Have a great week.

    High possibility of some rain tonight, but unless it is a deluge (or super windy)I will be there, but please check this site beforehand to be sure. Meet in front of the community center. I will be starting pretty much right at 7 and I tend to walk the lake counter clockwise if you are running late and want to catch us somewhere along the way. Bring lights - there is not much light on the inner path of the lake.
    In light of the recent incidences around the lake and surrounding areas we will walk as a group. Please be aware of who is behind you and if you stop to clean up after your dog let somebody know to wait. Also, if you change your mind about attending, please change your rsvp. I will cancel if the group gets smaller than six.
    Margaritas afterwards at Rositas? Does that tempt you?

    Looks like Green Lake is popular, but I have a conflict so changing my RSVP to a 'No', have fun and hope to join in soon.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
