Year Round Events (YREs)

Year Round Events (YREs) are done by individuals or small groups at any time during the year. These are events are set up and sponsored by a local club and can be done any time for credit. It is a "self-service" event. There is always a box or binder that is located at the start point (in a store usually) that has the walk directions, stamp(s), money envelope, and all the other materials necessary for the walker to self-register. A full listing of start points for all California YREs can be found in the back section of the CVA's quarterly publication, The Compass.
