It's still not too late to participate in the AZT in a Day! Oct 6th.
Here is the link so that you can sign up and be a part of this great event. There are other activities going on at various gateway cities too. This is what I've found so far:
Pine at That Brewery
: That Brewery & Pub is hosting an after party for AZT IN A DAY participants (best for those completing sections near Pine, AZ) from 3pm to 6pm. Relax on the patio and have an Arizona Trail Ale with other participants. There will be discounts on pints, and FREE DESSERT! If you arrive after 6pm, That Brewery will still honor the discount and dessert, but you may need to wait for seating. Just show off your AZT IN A DAY T-shirt, or a photo of yourself on the trail from the day to receive the discount. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
no later than October 1st with your section and number in your group so we can get a rough head count. Hope to see you!
Partners in Tourism (OPT) and the OWN - Oracle Womens Network, dba OWN Oracle are hosting two 2-hour hikes on October 6th. Afterwards hikers are encouraged to enjoy breakfast (with a half-price coupon) and music at Arizona Zipline Adventures. Contact Liz Harris-Tuck for more information: email@example.com
