An invitation to my Tour de Parks presentation — AGAIN

19 Mar


Some of you have been following the trials and tribulations of the presentation I’m planning to make for the Adirondack Club about my Tour de Parks adventure.

Basically it was originally scheduled for Wednesday March 8. Then we had the windstorm. It was rescheduled for the following Tuesday. Then we had a snowstorm. So it was rescheduled AGAIN for this coming Tuesday March 21.

Barring another natural calamity, third time should be the charm.

So I would like to invite everyone again to attend the free presentation. To tell you more about it, here’s (most of) the original invitation blog I posted a few weeks ago.

Remember how I went out and explored 100 parks last year? I called it my 2016 Tour de Parks Challenge, and it pretty much consumed my life. I wrote about it several times in my East Extra column (the most recent one is here) and probably touched on it a few times here in my blog as well.

Well, you’re going to have to hear about it one more time.

Shortly after I began my quest last year, I realized exactly how much of a challenge I had shouldered. I actually considered letting it fade off unnoticed. But then I got an email from the Genesee Valley Chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club, inviting me to be the featured speaker at one of their meetings.

I was stuck.

That meeting has finally arrived, and I would like to invite all of my readers to attend, if you’re at all interested in hearing about my adventures.

The event takes place on Tuesday March 21, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the Eisenhart Auditorium of the Rochester Museum and Science Center, 657 East Ave.

It should be interesting, I hope. I’m working up a fancy-pants display board with pins showing all the parks I visited, and a PowerPoint presentation highlighting some of the funny, surprising, beautiful and disappointing things I saw and learned. And yes, I’ll even tell everyone which one was my favorite. Sort of. The whole shebang should only be about 45 minutes.

Please join me. There’s no admission charge. Maybe you could grab dinner beforehand and make it a night out.

And if you’d like to read up on all the parks I visited, here’s a link to the 2016 Tour de Parks blog I maintained through it all.
