Hair of the Dog, January 1st 2018

December 29th, 2017

NOTE: The Polar Bear Dip has been cancelled due to the weather!
New plan = we’re meeting for lunch at the 3 Brewers at Yonge and Dundas (275 Yonge St.) at noon.

As is tradition for TOPW, we will kick off the year with the Hair of the Dog walk on January 1st.

Meet: 11am on the beach/boardwalk by Sunnyside Pavillion [map]
There’s usually a huge crowd, so we normally break up into smaller groups in order to find spots from which to shoot.

Rumour has it that Georgette is taking part in the annual Toronto Polar Bear Dip and raising money for Boost Child and Youth Advocacy Center.

After the dip (about 12:30pm) we’ll head to a bar. (Firkin on the Bay, 68 Marine Parade Drive – confirmed)

There’s no walk planned after lunch; we usually sit around and chat for most of the afternoon.

TOPW schedule for 2018

December 21st, 2017

As 2017 winds down, it’s time to start thinking about 2018. Our regular schedule will be the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month, which should avoid most of the long weekends.

Please remember to continue using the two hashtags when you post your photos: “2018TOPWrs” for walks on the regular schedule and “2018TOPWos” for those that are off-schedule – this helps our admins with keeping the feeds on track.

We’ll kick off the year with the Hair of the Dog walk as usual (details soon); listed below are the dates so that you can add them to your calendar: Jan 01*, 13, 27; Feb 10, 24; Mar 10, 24; Apr 14, 28; May 12, 26; Jun 09, 23; Jul 14, 28; Aug 11, 25; Sep 08, 22; Oct 13, 27; Nov 10, 24; Dec 08, 22.

Seasonal Lights Night Walk 2017, December 16th

December 9th, 2017

Firstly, apologies for not posting about the December 2nd walk – it was a last minute decision to do a leaderless walk rather than cancel it.

As is the tradition now, Vicki is organising our Seasonal Lights night walk:

Meet 5PM – Sheraton Hotel Lobby (Queen St across from City Hall). We’ll be near the glass enclosed waterfall behind the escalators.

NOTE: meet time changed to 5pm

It’s that time of year again. We will, as per usual, be winding our way to view downtown Toronto’s out-door and in-door delightful seasonal light displays. There will be areas of repeat for some, but will be new to more current members. All in all, it will be a time of get together. Let’s hope for snow, as it makes it all so much prettier. Somewhat of a map, meeting place and end pub location to come.
