Do you want to help organise a walk?
If you’d like to help with the organisation of some photo walks, drop me a line. Send me your email address, cell phone number and a guide to which part(s) of Toronto you know well enough to organise a walk.
What does it take to organise a walk? There’s obviously the route but also arranging the lunch and post-walk stops. There’s usually 3 or 4 days between closing the poll (which determines the area for the next walk) and posting the details. As a guide, it usually takes me about 3 or 4 hours to come up with the route, but occasionally a bar won’t be able to accommodate us and I end up having to re-plan the route. For someone who knows the area we’re walking, you can probably do it a bit quicker.
Then on the day of the walk, lead the group (allowing for minor detours) and ensure we arrive at the lunch and post-walk stops on time … or at least close enough to “on time” that we still get seated & served! 🙂
I’m hoping to get a small group (maybe 5 or 6 people) who can share the organisation; between us we’ll cover most of Toronto, so if I get multiple people volunteer for the same area I’ll probably only ask one person to be part of the group – it’s easier than having multiple people plan a single walk.
If you have suggestions for future walks (whether you want to help plan it or not), add a comment to the post @ http://torontophotowalks.ca/2010/03/locations-for-future-photo-walks/
