View Full Version : Billville Port Clinton Hiker Feed Cancelled

05-04-2005, 15:52
For those not in the know, members of Billville have run a hiker feed in Port Clinton in July for the last three years. Attendance has grown each year, with 75-85 HIKERS present last year, many hitching forward and backwards to attend. In addition to the current year hikers, both alumni hikers and townsfolk have taken part to make the event a success.

Unfortunately, we are cancelling this year's feed. There are currently internal problems within the town and Church communities, and we would rather not get caught in the crossfire.

Members of Billville will continue our tradition of Trail Magic in Pennsylvania, albeit in a more scattered and random fashion.

I want to make it clear that our decision to cancel has NOTHING to do with the behavior of hikers or the majority of townsfolk. Hikers have always behaved well at our event and have always cleaned up after themselves. Townspeople at last year's event cooked, provided food, rides, electricity and good will, and for that we thank them.

Hopefully things will sort themselves out in Port Clinton, but until then, we'll see you on the trail.
