There will be an empgasis on the South West and the Hig Desert régions that includes many famous National Parks. Come dressed in your cowboy or cowgirl boots and hats, Pardners!

Speaking of hats, Andy has worn many of them and in several countries. He has been a photograpaher, teacher, entrepreneur, musician... and has worked in the UK and USZA, France and Canada. Not to mention he's a member of BDX-USA! Which ever hat he's wearing, his presentation is sure to make us marvel and want to travel to see the beauty he has captured with the lense of his camera.

He met his match 10 years ago with Mister Right and he’s called Francesco! They write songs and have produced 5 albums together; this is their way to bring a bit of melody and happiness to the world.

April, Thursday 12th: The "Camino"

Some know it as The Way of Santiago. Some as the Camino de Santiago. Some simply say The Camino. Whatever you call it, for 1000 years IT has been known as one of the most traveled pilgrimages in the world. Come join us tonight when two of our members, Armelle & Andrée, will introduce you to the fascinating history of the Camino and tell us why thousands of people from all over the world undertake this mythical journey.

Both have completed the their own way. Armelle started in Conques, France in 2013 and finished in Finisterra ('the end of the world') in September 2017. Andrée started in 2000 from St. Jean Pied de Port, France  and finished in 2001 in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. She also walked another part of the path in 2003 from Le Puy en Velay to Figeac, France
