RSVP will open Mon. Feb 8th at 8am.
36 years ago, America was going through some very tough times; high inflation, gas shortages, of course, the Cold War, the commie bastards invading Afghanistan-that made the Cold War much colder, and 44 Americans being held hostage in Iran.
Then on Feb. 22, 1980, the United States Olympic hockey team beat those commie bastards, in the Miracle on Ice, the greatest upset in sports history!! Mike Eurizone, who would score the game winning goal in the game, recalled a telegram the team received that read simply- Beat those commie bastards!
Let's do a stairwalk in Echo Park to celebrate the 36th anniversary of when Al Michaels asked "Do you believe in Miracles?" and you answered; YES!!! USA!! USA!! USA!!
Meeting Time: Please arrive at Fixe Coffee at 6:30pm. After introductions, the walk will start promptly at 6.40pm. Walk will take about 1.5 hours.
2100 Echo Park Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90026 (http://www.yelp.com/biz/fix-coffee-los-angeles)
Parking-There is free unlimited street parking near Fixe.
Pace- Moderate pace- we will wait for people at the top of staircases and to regroup.
But, please be sure you're able to keep pace with the group.
If you are unable to keep up with the group, you are on your own to get back to the starting point.
Print out the map of the route.
Route- I'm going to try and come up with a route with 4 staircases going up and 3 staircases going down! At most it will be 5 miles.
No crashers- Please sign up for this event. Please do not just show up.
RSVP limits are set, because I don't want a huge group on these walks. So, if you RSVP only for yourself, don't bring a guest.
Please keep your RSVP updated and current. Repeated No Shows may lead to members being removed from the group.
There usually are no restrooms along these walks. Restrooms are usually only available at the starting point of the walks.
Always bring plenty of water.
Always wear running/tennis shoes. Open toed shoes are not a good idea for these stairs walks.
Any questions or concerns please email me, David.
