BEATRIZ SALLES wrote:The time has arrived to invite you to join the Fourth Walking Weekend to be held 1-4 October 2015 in Viladrau (Catalonia, Spain).


The number of participants is strictly limited to 60 participants only. We will accept 60 first reservations, and after that additional names go to a wait-list.

To register, please send an email to

lcwwviladrau2015@gmail.com

In January 2015 you will have to confirm your reservation and pay the non-refundable participation fee (amount to be fixed – 70 eur might be close). If you cancel after that, no refund will be paid, but you can transfer your reservation to the next person(s) in the wait-list, and get your money back that way.
Thnx Bea - Viladrau, here we come.

Thank you for the details. Sadly I am not free that weekend. I am very disappointed that I will not be able to go. But I hope that you all have a lovely time walking in the hills of Viladrau.

Bea asked me to post some photos!

Viladrau

La Sala
The fortified XIII century old house, birthplace of Serrallonga, the famous bandit.

Matagalls
The views are stunning and worth the effort: Viladrau and Vic on one side,
the blue Mediterranean sea on the other.
A perfect spot for one of Wijbe group pictures.

Hope I get to be there. Sorry that I've seen this only just now, presumably at #62 [after Gery Bogaard] since I've just sent my name to that email.
Looking down the list, though, it seems more likely than not that these people won't cancel. One never knows, though. The scenery is incredible.
The people going are great.
Here's hoping.

Dear Bea,

Thanks!

I haven't been paying attention here since I recovered from the Dublin outing and paid my bench dues. Almost missed this but now I am delighted to have made it onto the list. The plans look great!
(only problem is that I notice the names of some grumpy old men on the list. can some of them not be weeded out?)

Regards
Tom : -)
of course you say you can't complain

despite beatriz's doubts about whether or not catalonia will still be part of spain by next october the first draft of our logo is ready for inspection...

..as in true cohen style it is planned that when the logo is finalised it will appear on the usual badges..t-shirts..tote bages...scarves...caps...ties...cuff links..pendants..brooches..rings..scarves etc. etc.etc.etc... and it will be also appear on the cover of the expected tsunami of books written about and inspired by the weekend....

...and i agree with tom we do seem to have more than our fair share of grumpy old men signed up for the weekend...but i fear it's too late to do anything about that now..maybe the organisers of the 2017 weekend could take note......ta ken

Interested in joining the Walk but missed the deadline?
Don't worry - send your name and email address to Bea at lcwwviladrau2015@gmail.com
You will be put in the wait-list. All reservations are tentative until January (when the final confirmation & payment of the participation fee will be due).
I am pretty sure that all in the list of 61 names cannot join, and any cancellations will be replaced by the next member(s) in the wait-list.

and a big thanks to our main man jarkko for testing out our prototype t-shirt design during his weekend break in the mountains...first indications are that the logo is safe to use up to 2000 metres....

...so hopefully nothing over 2000 metres beatriz.....ta ken
