** If more than the 10 walks have been walked the walker will be awarded the next higher level of chits (example – 14 walks – walker will be awarded “2 chits” and so on for the number of walks walked. List ALL of the walks you do. By doing so you might earn another ‘”chit”,
The chit will be placed into the drawing by the Recognition Chairperson and drawn by the President of the respective State Organization (ESVA or OTSVA) at the 2nd Quarter State Meeting and a notation of how many chits for each walker will be kept by the Recognition Chairperson.
Washington State Resident Walkers: You may walk in any of the 4 states. All walks done in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington will be recorded on a log sheet for Washington and will be for the Washington State Drawing.
Oregon State Resident Walkers: You may walk in any of the 4 states. All walks done in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington will be recorded on a log sheet for Oregon and will be for the Oregon State Drawing.
There are 2 (two) Walk Log Sheets, one is numbered (1-40) with each 10 walks noted and a “chit” (drawing ticket) will be awarded. The other sheet is unnumbered for those walkers who will do more than 40 walks in the contest time period of 3 months, a “chit” (drawing ticket) will be awarded for each 10 walks (or as noted above) on the additional log sheet as needed.
Please make copies of the contest information sheet and log sheet(s) for your friends who are not a member of a walking club. The more ways this contest information gets out - the more walkers will be aware of it.
There will be copies available at upcoming traditional walking events in both Oregon and Washington.
Happy Trails to ALL!!
