Walk To Be Fit
Walk To Be Fit is scheduled to begin again on April 1, 2023. To register for the program, just stop by any FNB Bank location (Fort Ashby, Romney, Hampshire Square, or Capon Bridge), the Hampshire Wellness and Fitness Center at Hampshire Square, or the HCP&R Office at 90 North High Street in Romney to register for the program. When you register, don’t forget to pick up your free pedometer and your tally sheet to log the miles that you walk.
We will recognize four milestones this year: 100, 250, 500, and 1,000 miles. When you reach one of those milestones, or when your tally sheet is filled, just return it to the location where you picked it up, and we will contact you when you are eligible for a prize.
Walking is great exercise on the path to a healthier lifestyle, and what could be better than receiving some nice prizes for your efforts? That’s what Walk To Be Fit is all about.
DISC GOLF COURSE AT CAMP WALKER
The conditions at the Camp Walker Disc Golf Course are ideal. The trees are out, the weather is starting to warm up, and the course is in great shape. We re-painted the tee marker posts for each hole and cleared some fallen branches that had accumulated over the winter and spring. We also re-stocked the scorecards, pencils, and course maps, all of which can be found in the mailbox beside the first tee. The first tee is located on the flat ground out past the pavilion, where the road turns to the left and starts down over the hill toward the exit to the park. If you’re looking for a disc to play at Camp Walker, then we have several options for you. We have Skeeters, which are all-purpose discs that are suitable for every shot, for sale in the HCP&R office for just $7.00 each. We also have commemorative glow-in-the-dark drivers and putters that have the official Camp Walker logo on them for $15.00 each. All proceeds from the sale of these discs go for improvements to the course. If you haven’t been out to Camp Walker to play the course, you really need to take an hour or so and try it. I feel certain that you will find disc golf both physically and mentally challenging. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to spend some time in one of the prettiest spots in Hampshire County. And it’s free to play. How can you pass that up?
