Since our planned 2/10 walk ran into cold weather last weekend, a decision was made to try and walk on Saturday, 2/17/18, weather permitting! Everyone that wants to carpool/caravan, meet at 9:00 a.m., at Jumburrito, behind the Midland Mall.
For anyone else wanting to walk with us, we’ll plan on meeting at UTPB parking lot in Odessa, at 9:30 a.m. (AVA Event ID# 109856 – 2018/#Y1829 10km/5km.) (located around 4919 E. University Blvd., by the Presidential Museum. Don’t forget to bring your AVA book for stamping, and $3.00.
NOTE: There is a Plan B in case the weather is bad. If the group decides that the weather is nasty, then a walk inside the Midland Mall might suffice!
This month’s meeting is scheduled for:
When: Monday, February 5th, 2018
Time: 6:00 p.m.
Where: Murray’s Restaurant & Deli — 3211 Wadley
We hope to see you there!

A special thanks to all of the members who helped clean up our ‘Keep Midland Beautiful – Adopted – Windlands Park.’ Those who participated in the litter control pickup on Saturday, 2/3/18 were: Dorise Watson, Ken Rust, Carolyn & Gary Petersen, Uta & Sam Sanchez, Janice Courtney, Diana Smart and Read Johnston.
Alex also reported that she had updated the Windlands Park bulletin case by placing 2018 information about the Walkabout Club in the ‘Give-Away Box’ that is attached to the case.
We’re always looking for new members, so hopefully others walking and running in the Park, will stop and read the bulletin board, take a free brochure, and come to a meeting or attend a Walkabout event.
For the beginning of a New Year, members of the Midland Walkabout Club participated in the Annual Monahans Resolution Walk. Thanks to fellow member, Read Johnston, who sent us the results and a little pic!
“Bonnie Resley, Ken Rust, Delores, Sammy Hunnicutt, Alex Rose, Read Johnston after their 5 or 10K Resolution Run at the State Park. We all had fun and half of us won medals. Weather was perfect. It was hot enough that Read poured water on his head at each of the water stops.”
Great Way to Start The New Year!
Way to go Walkabouters!
