Cross-Posting: Out There Hiking

Here is the Summer and Fall Out There HikingSchedule

Saturday, August 15 – South Whiteshell Trail

This is a brand new trail that meanders through the boreal forest along the south shore of Falcon Lake, to High Lake (near the Ontario border).  About 10 km.  Moderately difficult.

Saturday, September 12:  Tunnel Island Trail

Not a new trail, but new to Out There.  This moderately difficult walk winds through the boreal forest near Kenora and along the shores of the Lake of the Woods.  About 8 km.

Saturday, October 10 – We are offering a choice between two longer trails — both perfect for a cooler fall day, and both in the Whiteshell Provincial Park.

1.  Centennial Trail. 

This favourite Out There trail is a 12 km hike through the boreal forest and over many granite outcrops in the central Whiteshell.  This is one of our most challenging trails.

2.  Mantario Trail:  (West Hawk Lake trailhead to Cariboo Lake) — a 15 km walk along the south end of this iconic Manitoba hiking trail through the thick boreal forest of the east Whiteshell.

We will send out more details to  those who have signed on to the Out There Hiking list a few weeks before each hike.

If you are not yet on our Out There Hiking list, go towww.outtherewinnipeg.com  and click on the hiking boot.

All hikes are day trips.  We will leave Winnipeg around 9 am and return in the late evening.

Goldeyes Baseball August 14

Who’s interested in going to a Goldeyes’ game? They play the Fargo-Moorhed Redhawks (who look to be ranked fourth in the North Division) on August 14 at 7 p.m. Tickets come in price ranges of $12 – $23, but depending on numbers we may try for a group rate. Email praxis2121@gmail.com if you’re interested!

Rainout policy applies for this date:

  • In the event of a rain out, ticket can be exchanged at the point of purchase for a ticket of equal value for any remaining regular season game during the same season (based on availability).

Fringe Fest: Girls’ Guide to War

Outwords has made some recommendations for Fringe (http://outwords.ca/2015/issue-summer-2015/outwords-fringe-picks/), so a group of LACE gals is headed to:

We’ll meet for dinner in the area at 6:30 p.m.  Details will be worked out with whoever is going, so email praxis2121@gmail.com by July 19 if you’re interested in joining the group for dinner, theatre, or both.

Play info from the website:

By Claire Patton from Quake Theater Boulder, CO

Millicent Gulch, middle schooler and aspiring evil genius, has just declared war on her best friend and wants to recruit you for her army. With the help of Napoleon Bonaparte, a mind-reading mouse and a reluctant stagehand named Scott, Millicent redefines war in this journey through the treacherous arena of teenage emotions.

Don’t miss this rapid-fire comedy hailed as “deliciously edgy” (Fresno Bee), “electrifying” and “a barrel of laughs and a gloriously good time” (King’s River Life Magazine).

FIFA is over, but we’re already planning …

July 23 for a Fringe evening and August 14 for a Goldeye’s game. Details to follow soon.
