    2016 10 01 and 02 SYDENHAM -- Completion weekend!

    Post by cgundlack on Mon Apr 18, 2016 7:15 am

    As discussed on our last Owen Sound weekend, we are shifting the schedule to allow us to complete Sydenham club.  To do this, we are doing the following hikes:
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    Saturday October 1st: Colpoy's Range Rd to Wiarton (~16.4 km)

    We will meet at our end-point in Wiarton (Map 35 168.4 marker, Parking area P001, lat: 44.742513896594375  long: -81.13514013765938  Google Map Here) at 9AM.  

    We will then shuttle back to Colpoy's Range Rd (Map 34, 152.0 marker, parking area S046, lat: 44.78878871010579 long: -80.99662842434971 Google Map Here)

    Yes--this was the ugly 'Not Maintained' road!  We'll remember to come into this from the West end Smile

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Sunday October 2nd: Blantyre to Walter's Falls (~11.5km)

    We will meet at Walter's falls (Map 29, 11.5 marker parking S003, Lat: 44.48884385480729, Long: -80.71092737124152, Google Map Here) at  9AM

    From there, we will shuttle back to the start-point at Blantyre (Map 28, division point of Sydenham and Beaver Valley clubs, parking BV026, Lat: 44.499854845562316, Long: -80.63277316757517, Google Map Here)

    Looking forward to a fun weekend!

    I have investigated accommodations at Walter's Falls--they are fully booked due to weddings.

    There are a couple of cottage rental options that look more economical than the one I had previously identified. Gerda found one that is $900 for the weekend and accommodates 8 people. Barb is also investigating some options.

    Otherwise, there are several B&Bs and the Best Western still has rooms, and we can meet for dinner.

    I am in for the cottage rental if others are as well.

    Subject: October 1 & 2 hikes

    I would like to propose that, because of the longer driving distances and the shorter hiking distances this weekend, we change the starting time from 8:00 am to 9:00 am for both days.
    This will allow more time for breakfast and travel, and still have us finished our hikes at a reasonable time in the afternoon.
