      Dates: 4-5 November 2000
      Start/FinishTimes: Register between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00p.m. Must finish
      by 4:00 p.m.
      Registration/: Registration for all three events is at the Rock Hall
      Civic Center, Civic Center Drive, Rock Hall, MD. See map at end.
      Distance: Both walks are 10 km events; there is only one optional 5km
      trail. The bike is 29 km.
      Trail Rating/Description: One walking trail is in the town of Rock Hall.
      The other walking trail is in the Wildlife Refuge; you will have to
      drive to the start point there. Both trails are rated1+, and are over
      paved, unpaved, and natural surfaces. The trails are not recommended for
      wheelchairs or strollers. The bike trail is rated 1 and intersects with
      our Chestertown YRE bike.
      Conditions: The event will be conducted regardless of weather
      conditions. Please, no littering along the trail. Pets must be leashed
      and cleaned up after. The use of an insect repellant is highly
      recommended, especially in the National Wildlife Refuge where ticks,
      chiggers, fleas, and mosquitoes may be present.
      Eligibility: Everyone is urged to participate in volkswalks to the best
      of their ability, and to the limits imposed by the trail. Children under
      12 must be accompanied by an adult.
      Registration/Start Card: AVA policy requires that all participants must
      register and carry a Start Card while on the trail. Obtain your card at
      the Start Location and return it to the Awards Table whether or not you
      complete the event.
      Fee: There is no fee to walk the trail unless you want to earn AVA/IVV
      credit and/or award. The fee for Credit Only is $2.00 per event. You may
      walk a trail a second time for distance credit at no additional fee.
      ALERT: Starting with its events in 2001, CBCW will no longer be able to
      subsidize free walkers. We regret this, but financial necessity brought
      on by rising costs and declining participation requires that we adopt
      the policy of imposing fees on every participant in our events.
      Therefore, we will adopt the policy of requiring all walkers and bikers
      over the age of 12 to pay a minimum fee of $1.00. This fee does not
      include IVV/AVA credit stamps. If a fee is not paid, then the walker or
      biker may not walk or ride our designated trail as an IVV/AVA
      participant. The fee for IVV/AVA credit will remain $2.00.
      Award: There is no special award for this event, but a variety of awards
      from previous events will be available. You are urged to support the
      Refuge by visiting their headquarters for information, exhibits, and
      possibly to purchase their merchandise. (Please sign their book.)
      Special Information: On a clear day, you will be able to see the Bay
      Bridge, Baltimore, and the Key Bridge from the Island. Three endangered
      species that live on or use Eastern Neck are the Delmarva Fox Squirrel,
      Southern Bald Eagle, and Peregrine Falcon.
      IVV/AVA Books: Participants for IVV/AVA credit are reminded to bring
      their IVV Record Books. New books and New
      Walker packets will be available for purchase at $5.00 each at the Sales
      REFRESHMENTS: Water and candy will be available for free at the
      Start/Finish and Control Points.
      DISCLAIMER: The sponsor of this event can not be held responsible for
      any lost or stolen items, nor any accidents or injuries at any time.
      Every reasonable effort will be made to make this event safe and
      The Refuge greatly appreciates donations and CBCW will gladly see that
      they get any you choose to make in recognition of the pleasure received
      by walking and biking there. Rest rooms are available at the
      Registration Point. Pets must be leashed while in the Refuge. Weather
      may affect trail difficulty. Don't miss the opportunity to take
      advantage of CBCW's YRE bike and walk in Chestertown.
