Happy New Year! Updates on our events have just begun (Jan. 1, 2020). The current links for the AVA website still say "future event", I will give them a day or two to update the website before I finish linking even the year round events.
The BHVA Board meeting has been changed to January 13th at 5 pm. Please meet at the Rapid City Public Library in the Hoyt Room.
27 walkers enjoyed the opportunity to walk for the health and fun of it on January 1, 2020. Aside from a breeze, the 40+ degree temperatures made for a great opportunity to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. We are off to a great year of walking and maintaining our health.
Our first traditional event is the Snowshoe on Feb. 1st at the Dumont Trailhead. Please mark your calendars and keep that resolution to be more fit in 2020. Follow this link to find all the information for your planning purposes.
Membership Chair, Beth Hendricks also wanted me to remind those of you that haven't renewed your dues yet that now would be a great time to due so. I am attaching a link to our membership page here or you can go to the MORE tab at the top of this page and scroll down to the Club Info page to get to the membership form, or here is Beth's contact information: (605) 381-5176 email@example.com

We are trying something new with a slide show for photos - let us know if you like the format. If you have photos you would like to share from our traditional or seasonal walks please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Would you like to host an AVA sanctioned event in 2020? Please complete the walk form further down on this page and submit to Allan Ward.
BHVA Walk requests forms--Please use the 2019 forms to submit your walk requests for 2020. Year-Round and Seasonal POCs just update and submit the walks you wish to renew in your electronic document and send them to Allan.
There are two file types for walk requests: one is a pdf file that you can print off and write on and snail mail and the other is a rich text document that will allow you to type in the form, save, and then submit you walk request electronically via email.
