You all need a little background here.Once upon a time there were four Nordic Walking Instructors struggling to change the way America, or at least Minnesota, walks. With poles in hand they taught classes, led group walks, scheduled clinics and walked miles and miles. Many listened, many took up their own poles, but there was still so many who didn’t understand Nordic Walking. So the four came up with a plan.They planned a Nordic Walking event at a local park, one of their favorite places to Nordic Walk. They believed that if they created the perfect opportunity walkers would come. Put trails and poles and instructors together and who could resist?And then others found out about the perfect plan and the plan grew and expanded to fill North America.It’s not a fairy tale. Four of us created Great Lakes Nordic Walkers, www.greatlakesnordicwalkers.com to promote a Minnesota Nordic Walking Expo. Three Rivers Park District graciously agreed to host it at Hyland Lake Park Preserve on June 12, National Get Outdoors Day. Perfect!Seems that Nordic Walking North America, www.nordicwalkingna.com, was looking for a location for their 2nd Annual North American Nordic Walking Expo and came across our perfect plan.A new partnership was formed, Nordic Walking North America and Great Lakes Nordic Walkers presenting the Second Annual North American Nordic Walking Expo, hosted by Three Rivers Park District and sponsored by Hoigaards, Midwest Mountaineering, Nordic Walk This Way and Nordic Walk for Life. June 12 at Hyland 9-4pm.It will be “the place to be!” for Nordic Walkers. So tell a friend, bring your family, announce it from the rooftops! Make a plan to join us! It’s going to be quite the adventure!!!
