FLC Seniors Outdoor Club

As a precaution, all activities of the FLC Seniors Outdoor Club have been suspended until further notice.

FLC Seniors Outdoor Club will NOT have its Annual General Meeting for 2020-2021 membership year (planned for September 11, 2020) due to Covid-19 concerns. Perhaps the most important task of an AGM is to elect a new Executive Committee for the starting membership year - an election e-mail will be sent to FLC Seniors Outdoor Club's members on September 11. You must be a current member of the FLC Seniors Outdoor Club for 2020-2021 year in order to vote.

FLC Seniors membership can be renewed online starting August 1, 2020.

FLC Seniors Outdoor Club membership can be renewed online starting September 1, 2020.

WALKING

ALL organized walks are CANCELLED indefinitely in keeping with AHS and the Alberta Government regulations. This includes Leisure Walkers and the Intermediate & Fast Walkers. The health and safety of our members is our top priority. Please check here for updates.

We have 2 walking groups: Leisure Walkers and Intermediate and Fast Walkers. Spring and summer walks are mainly taken along the many pathways around Calgary and are selected for the scenery and interest they offer to seniors. Starting points vary and participants are expected to reach these points by their own arrangements. Join the group which best meets your needs. Both groups are welcoming and social.

Leisure Walkers

The Leisure Walks are usually 5 - 6 km and 1½ hour long. We walk at a comfortable pace and socialize on the way. We cover many of the pathways in Fish Creek Provincial Park and some areas in the South of Calgary

All Leisure Walks are CANCELLED indefinitely due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Please continue to check for updates in the months to come. ‚ÄčTry to get your exercise regularly, stay healthy and safe.

All Intermediate & Fast Walks are CANCELLED until further notice. Please keep in contact with each other; enjoy a daily dose of laughter and breathe in some fresh air every day. We all look forward to the return of our weekly walks! Stay well.
