Trails Weekend 2016

JC marker

Friday, September 30 – Sunday, OCTOBER 2

One of the Alumni Association’s on-going projects is the maintenance of the Haliburton Scout Reserve hiking trail system. Each year, Trails Weekend is held in the fall for alumni to perform the work. The tasks done depend on the number of volunteers who attend, the condition of the trails and whether there are any “special” projects required on the trails or at the camp on that particular weekend.

Trails Weekend typically offers some spectacular fall colours with the chance for current and former staff of all ages to work and socialize together. Meals and accommodations in HSR cabins are provided to volunteers.

Here’s what you need to do:

1. Register online for the Trails Weekend,  by September 25, 2016 (Important for planning the work and getting food).

2. Arrive Friday evening or very early Saturday morning. We will be planning and assigning the work crews at breakfast on Saturday.

3. Come prepared for the weather, both for outdoor work and for evenings/overnight.

4. Be prepared to have a great weekend!

IMPORTANT NOTE: As for all volunteer activities at the camp, the Scouts Canada Child & Youth Safety training is required to be on the camp property.  Clean Police Reference Checks are required to stay overnight at the camp. As well, Hold Harmless and Code of Conduct forms must be completed and submitted. See more information here

Optional—Bring musical instruments for playing tunes in the hub Friday & Saturday evenings.

Your Alumni Thunderbird Has a New Editor

Issue 60 marks the first issue with Ken Wrigglesworth as editor. Ken becomes the 5th editor after John Stephens, John Jansen, Shaun McFarlane, Jeremy Debling and, most recently, Warner Clarke.

Ken is no stranger to the Alumni Thunderbird as he has been a frequent contributor in the past. On behalf of myself and all past editors, we wish Ken every success. May your inbox forever be full of material for future issues and may all your computer glitches be minor.
