Each fall the Ice Age Trail Alliance hosts Regional Rallies to bring together volunteers from across the state for planning, training, and collaboration. These events are excellent opportunities to learn what it takes to create a world class hiking trail and get involved locally.

Participants will hear the latest updates from the Alliance, share chapter successes, and begin planning for 2018 local and regional events. Lunch is provided.

Saturday, November 3rd – Chippewa County
Sunday, November 4th – Waupaca County
Saturday, November 10th – Rock County

Schedule

Start: 9 am

Agenda (TBD)

Lunch: We’ll provide the fixins for a “build your own” sandwich bar, while the host chapter provides delicious desserts.

End: 2:30 pm.

Note: The local host chapter may arrange for a nearby hike, or enjoy the afternoon on your own for a fall walk.

Duff Bucket Challenge

We’re bringing back the Duff Bucket Challenge. The fall season is synonymous with decluttering. As you go through your house plumping sofa cushions and clearing off the tops of dressers, corral the small change you find into your Ice Age Trail coffee mug. Empty those coins into a Duff Bucket at a Regional Rally near you, and refill said mug with your favorite morning beverage. Feel virtuous as you settle into the camaraderie and conversation.

Highlight Your Chapter’s Successes with Photos!

As in previous years, we are hosting the ever-popular Chapter Exchanges. This year, we encourage you to highlight your successes with photographs.
Please send 3 – 5 digital photos to Brad Crary at Brad@iceagetrail.org. We will organize them by chapter into a digital presentation, so include your chapter name with the photos.
All photos need to be in Brad’s email box by Monday, October 29th.
