2000 SUMMER EVENTS

SUNDAY, JUNE 4, 2000 - NORTH SHORE NATURE WALK

We will be going on a very interesting nature walk in the Georgetown/Rowley State Forest. The walk starts at approximately 9:00 AM and the hike will be approximately 7 miles in total. Wear appropriate hiking shoes/boots. Absolutely no guide dogs will be allowed due to the uneven and narrow nature of the trail. Cost is $5.00. Bring your own lunch.

We will be staying at the Cranmore Mountain Lodge in No. Conway, NH and hiking a nearby trail on both Saturday and Sunday. The Lodge offers an outdoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Hiking boots are absolutely required for the hike. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday dinner is at the Lodge and also included. A $25 deposit is required for this trip and the trip is limited to 30 people, so get your deposit in early. Your deposit is non-refundable. The total cost of the trip, including both breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday, as well as Saturday dinner, is $100.

Enclosed for your completion, please find an application form, personal health history survey, and a liability release/consent for treatment. If you have not already done so for 2000, all forms must be completely filled out, signed and returned to SFL before your participation in any event can be confirmed.

For your own health and safety, New England Regional Ski for Light requires all participants, sighted or not, complete the attached personal health history form. This confidential record requires your candid, accurate and legible completion. Every item in every section must be completed. Mark N/A if any section is not applicable to you.

Anyone in average physical condition can expect to complete these events. If we have any questions about your ability to participate we will call and discuss the matter with you. In questionable cases the decision to participate will be that of the participant and his or her physician. Participants must take responsibility for control of any health problems. For example, those with insulin dependent diabetes must monitor their blood glucose levels daily. We really need you to take a high level of personal responsibility for your health and well being at this event not only for your own safety but for that of others. Your enjoyment will also be enhanced by any measures you take to improve your physical fitness and stamina before the event.

Transportation will be available by car-pooling. You will be contacted about a week prior to departure to make travel arrangements. Guides are encouraged to let us know if they are willing to drive and how many passengers they will be able to take. All passengers are expected to "chip in" for gasoline.

Please note that if you are coming to an event from out of town, DO NOT make your travel plans (air flights, train, bus, etc.) prior to 7:00 PM on Sunday. It is very difficult to get back to transportation centers prior to this time without disrupting many other participants.

We look forward to seeing many familiar as well as many new friends this summer. See you soon.
