Free Walk and Wonder, October 16th

Friday, October 14th, 2016

Geoff has proposed a leaderless walk; the plan is to meet at 10am on Sunday (Oct16) at the Starbucks on the NW corner of King & Yonge. Those who are there will decide on the route and stops. “We can organize ourselves based on numbers, weather and photo interests. There’s lots of local knowledge and photo experience to be shared.”
If you’re joining the walk after they start, Geoff’s phone number is 416-571-1809.
