Need to work off some of the calories consumed during one (or more) of our
Culinary activities? Or maybe you just want to get outside and enjoy some of the
beautiful scenery the Grand Traverse area has to offer? Either way, we have some
groups that are sure to appeal to the nature-lover in you.
Exercise Groups include:
Biking: This group is lead by Rose Carmen
firstname.lastname@example.org, Cathy Bonenberger
email@example.com, and Ira
Golf: This group plays every Monday morning during the
warm-weather months at different courses around the Grand
Traverse area. Contact Ralph Brickman at
Grand Traverse Hiking Club: Some of you might be looking for more opportunities
to get outdoors and explore our area on foot, and the Grand Traverse Hiking Club
can help you find some more people and activities to do just that. The GTHC is a
chapter of the North Country Trail Association (NCTA). The website is
http://www.northcountrytrail.org/gtr/. I encourage you to visit the website
to see what it's all about, and to download the latest copy of the newsletter.
Monthly meetings are usually held from September through May, on the third
Tuesday night of the month in Conference Room A&B of the Munson Community Health
Center. Numerous outings and events are also scheduled throughout the year. This
fall there has been at least one day hike scheduled every weekend, and they have
been quite popular. The next newsletter will be available in early December, and
it should have all the winter outings and events posted. Hope to see you on the
trail! For more information, contact Lois Goldstein or John Heiam (president of
the GTHC) at 938-9655.
Paddling: Morning paddles - on inland lakes and gentle rivers - meet at 9:45 (or
earlier) to be on water by 10:00 AM. New to the sport? Need help with boat
unloading? We especially encourage beginners, but all are welcome to join. PDF's
required. We'll paddle for about 1.5 to 2 hrs. and then go out to lunch. These
are beginner paddles, so we will cancel if bad weather is a possibility. Be sure
to call us to sign up so we can send directions or notify you in case of
cancellation. For more information, contact Jody Bennett or Bob Luoma at
firstname.lastname@example.org or 932-9249.
Snowshoeing/XC Skiing: This group is looking for a new leader. Contact Pat Haber at
email@example.com or 228-4245.
Walk in the Woods:
The group gets together the second Saturday of each month for a 'walk in the
woods.' Contact Bob or Brenda Knaack at
