Our friend Alberto, from nordicwalkinvenice.com has sent us a very tempting invitation. I for one, will try my darnedest to attend this event. I love Venice, having been there a couple of times in the past and would absolutely love to take part in this. Hopefully, some of you will find a way to get there as well.
Here’s Alberto Gorini’s invitation:
on September 18 2011 the nordicwalkinvenice event will take place: non-competitive Nordic Walking in the town of Venice, organized by the sports club SPES Mestre -Canoe Section.
On Saturday Sept 17 a “Nordic Walking Open Day” will take place at Parco San Giuliano in Mestre, where instructors of three national nordic walking federations (ANI – ANWI – Italian School) will show their techniques and will accompany the most experts along the park paths.First in its kind, this event will bring a sport born in the cold Nordic countries to the most “walked” town in Europe.
To organize such a demonstration in Venice is not a trivial matter; the visibility that goes with it has no equal.
International enrolments are being registered by the web-site http://www.nordicwalkinvenice.com, which we hope you will visit soon.
We intend to have the press and the television, both local and national, take part in this important sporting event. There might be news in the international press as well.
A press conference in the presence of the Venetian councillors responsible for tourism and sport will take place.
Probably your federation has already informed you of this event in which, as already mentioned, the three Italian federations take part, aiming to promote this splendid sport.
The event, in our opinion, deserves to be promoted thoroughly.
Therefore we are sending you the poster, the flyer and a detailed program for your better knowledge and are inviting you to participation, together with your pupils.
Additional copies can be sent upon request.
We are also enclosing the poster and the flyer in jpeg format, in the hope that you put them in your portal.
I remain at your disposal for further information
We thank you in advance and hope to have you with us in Venice.
