Mrs Lee Garden – March 8th

racoon

The East Texas Trekkers are hosting a 5k and a 10k walk near Gladewater, TX.

Mrs. Lee’s Garden is a 816-acre tract of  land.  Inside this tract millions of golden daffodils are  scattered over approximately 28 acres.  Hopefully they will be in bloom for this walk.  Walkers will enjoy the beauty from a trail that meanders around two  lakes, between wooded valleys, and around a replica pioneer log cabin.

To participate in either of these events you are required to register at the start.  Registration is anytime from 9 am – Noon.  Registration costs $3.00. You will carry a start card with you and at checkpoints your card will be marked.

This is not a speed competition. You are encouraged to bring along your children and walk/talk and spend some time together enjoying the great outdoors.

When you finish (anytime before 3 pm) you turn in your start card. If you are an official Volkssporter you will have an Event and/or Distance Record Book. When you turn in your start card you will receive a stamp in your record books.

If you do not as yet have an AVA record book, they will be for sale at the start/finish. Just ask for a new walker’s packet. The packet is $5.00 but it contains three coupons for free registration ($9.00 value) as well as both an Event and a Distance book.

Start Point:   Barn next to house at 21600 CR 3103

Driving Directions:   From I-20, take US-271 north about 7 miles to CR 3104, then right (east) and drive 1.2 miles to CR 3103.  Then right about 1 mile to start point at barn past main entrance to gardens.  Look for AVA start signs.

Hope to see you there!
