    51st Annual General Meeting Saturday April 27 2013

    Notes from our Guest Speaker, Jill Hewlett:

    “Change is meant to bring in needed upgrades that are timely, relevant and for the better, but as humans we are creatures of habit and our routines become automatic and comfortable.  Because of this, change can feel threatening.”

    Learn Brain Fitness strategies to make transitions and change smooth and successful. Join Jill Hewlett Educational Kinesiologist of Brain Works Global at the Toronto Bruce Trail Club AGM On April 27th as she presents “Brain Fitness for the Trail and when you can’t get to it”.

    Food Bank Support

    We will also continue with our support for the food bank and we encourage you to bring your cheque book instead of food boxes and cans, although food will also be gratefully accepted. Cheques are a more convenient way of donating and allow the food bank to buy their own food at a lesser cost. Tax receipts will be issued for donations over $10.00.Cheques should be made payable to “Second Harvest”. Please assist in passing this on to your fellow members. Last year we raised a notable sum of $712 with an attendance of about 140 members and it would be fantastic to be able to beat $1,000 thisyear.

    Open House & Hikes at Cedar Highland Sunday April 21,10:00 AM—03:00 PM

    Come see for yourself why Cedar Highlands is worth protecting! Join the BTC and the Caledon Hills Bruce Trail Club on April 21st and be among the first to explore the new route of the Bruce Trail at Cedar Highlands.

Hikers are encouraged to bring along a fully loaded pack for increasingly longer hikes over varied terrain. All are loop hikes to avoid having to shuttle packs as well as people. Of course, any hiker is welcome – regardless of the size or contents of your backpack. If you haven’t yet purchased a backpack, don’t run out and buy one for this series. Get a large day pack and fill it with books, rocks, bottles of water, etc. (with something soft but firm against your back) and it will be heavy enough. See what backpacks people have and talk to other hikers about the pros and cons of various backpacks. Today’s hike is through Rattlesnake Point and Crawford Lake Conservation Areas. Subsequent hikes are April 14 and 21.

    . Join or renew today and support the Trail you love.

    Starting off the New Year with a hike on The Bruce Trail at Hilton Falls 

    Listed in The Toronto Bruce Trail Club’s quarterly newsletter Footnotes as a level II car hike, the most appealing item was the late start of 11:00 am. That, it seems, generated a great turnout. Bob Humphries, our hike leader, started us out on Conservation area trails, over the dam and then hooking up with side trails of the Bruce in this area. A wet but enjoyable hike. The trail was its typically rocky self when you got off the wide park trails but quite manigible. Commendations to the Trail Captain for this area for a well blazed (blue markings) and routed trail as it follows creeks and over waterfalls. Our first stop for a lunch break was at a bonfire that was already going with a large wood pile handy for those who cared to add a log. A second bonfird near the Hilton Falls itself was an added bonus. You pay to enter the Hilton Falls CA but it does seem worth it for the parking available and those fires. Many of us  enjoyed a hot chocolate after at the Mohawk Inn just along from the park.
    Looking forward to the next hike that Bob is doing up at Mono Cliffs Provincial Park. (Saturday January 7)  He seems to like his parks and those after hike stops for refreshments. His apparent large following seems to like that as well. For a full list of public is invited bus, car and urban outings check the home page of the club’s website at http://www.torontobrucetrailclub.org While you are there sign up to receive the club’s periodic  e-mail newsletter, E-Notes.

    Sydenham BTC Celebrates 50 years of The Bruce Trail 

    Hike The Sydenham Section End-to-End in 2012

    To commemorate Sydenham BTC’s 50 th Anniversary, we are pleased to offer an End-to-End hike in the spring and autumn of 2012.

    We will spread this hike over four weekends, two days each, on these dates:  May 12 & 13, June 16 & 17, September 8 & 9, and October 13 & 14.  With a total trail length of 170.1 kilometres, each hike will average 21 Km.

    All hikes will begin at 8:00 AM at predetermined locations.  Sydenham BTC volunteers will serve as hike leaders and sweeps for all hikes.

    Daily hikes can be completed at each individual hiker’s pace, but it is expected that participants will complete each day’s distance by a mutually agreed time.

    This promises to be a vigourous, interesting, scenic and satisfying series of hikes.

    Hikes will take place regardless of weather.

    A detailed weekend-by-weekend itinerary and information about the registration process and fees will be available at a later date.

    Please send an email message to indicate your interest in this event or make further inquiries to Doug at:  cummingdl@sympatico.ca

    Tuesday November 8 Join The Flying Squad and Ontario Streams to plant trees at St. Francis Centre 

    Here’s a  great opportunity to return a favour.
    St. Francis Centre, one of our landowners, in conjunction with the non-profit NGO, Ontario  Streams, is going to be planting about 235 trees next Tuesday, November 8th, starting at 10 a.m.
    Some trees are potted, some are bare-rooted.
    St. Francis Centre  has been quite supportive of our efforts to maintain the trail in their area,  and this is a useful conservation effort.
    Ontario Streams  will provide shovels and gloves and even some rubber boots, although hiking  boots should be adequate.
    St. Francis Centre is located on the north side of Hwy 9, 1 km east of Airport Road.
    Please  let me know if you can come over for awhile to help out.
    Bring a friend.
    Joan  Richard CHBTC Trail  Coordinator joanr55@hotmail.com
