REMINDER: A mask and hand sanitizer are required.
At this time, we are not accepting "guest" registrations. TBN events
are currently for members only.
Note: Because of the large number of people on the waiting list we have decided to do 2 hikes. They will both be the same in all aspects except that we will divide the people registered into 2 groups starting 15 minutes apart. Group number one will hike with Dave Gagne and the second will hike with John Anderson (me) Between the two of us we should be able to navigate the route successfully
Please be aware that more people are hiking this year than before and the trails are busy. I am a little reluctant to add another 35 people to the Bruce Trail just because it will even be busier. On the other hand I would like tbn members to have the opportunity to hike this fall and not just those that happened to notice that that the registrations were open early.
We will see how this works and either continue (or not)
