Just posted today, if a party of 3 to 4 reserve by April 1, 2015 then a $200.00 per person discount will be applied to the final balance. This can be found under the vacation payments in the store, "BUY" or "PAY" and is labeled Early. If paying the balance due in 1 payment then 200.00 is deducted. If paying the balance due in 2 payments then 100.00 is deducted for each payment. If using the 25.00 incremental payments, then the balance will be paid off sooner. This discount will be posted in your client account, confirmation.
The instructions to: register, get maps and directions, and get credit for your walks is now posted. Go under the Volkssporters tab and choose the Volkssporters non customer page. Thanks.
The Jan-Feb-Mar 2015 CVF newsletter, Volume 30 Issue 1, will soon be available through the CVF website. Make sure to read the Presidents Report.
As of today we are accepting secured on line payments for the bluetrails vacation reservations and payment options and for the bluetrails "BUYS" store.
Wishing everyone a healthy and happy New Year!
There is a summary of the 7 trails sanctioned for 2015 under the Volkssporting tab.
More detailed information will be posted soon. Thanks.
Today we received our packet of information from the CVF ; membership certificate, sanction forms, statistics report forms and more. I will summarize the information soon and I do hope that sanctioning these trails will spark an interest in the South Shore of Nova Scotia. I want to be there right now!
We are thinking about adding an option for the 2015 season. Some clients want the full package: transportation, lodging, planned itineraries, breakfast, lunch, dinner, hiking snacks and water, ferry tickets, and everything else. Just wake up and be picked up and enjoy the day. Some people may prefer to include everything but the transportation; you rent your own car and buy your own gas but we provide everything else.
Also I would like to clarify that having a bluetrails staff member on the walk with you is totally up to you. If you want us to drop you off with a map and directions and pick you up later, that is fine. Or if you prefer a staff member to walk with you, that is fine also.
Please comment in the footer section of any page, if you are interested in optional transportation or want to make a comment. Thanks.
11-3-14: mailed the application to become an Affiliate Member of the CVF and mailed the maps, directions and completed sanction forms for 7 trails on the South Shore.
The US FreedomWalk Festival is scheduled for October 17 - October 19, in Arlington, Virginia. ( www.usfreedomwalk.org). I would like to thank Dolores for thinking about bluetrails for this event.
I also need to thank some very helpful people in The Canadian Volkssporting Federation, Ethel, Susan and Michele. I appreciate your patience with all my questions and appreciate your guidance. ( I'm not done yet but thank you.)
Thanks to the Stephanie and many AVA members that without your initial inquiries and questions, I would have never known that what I was doing was similar to Volkssporting.
