Hello fellow Phoenixers,
We are planning a club activity at "La Cabane à sucre". Members can benefit from a reduced price courtesy of the club.
This outing will replace our March Saturday Breakfast at Omelette & Cie.
We have selected Pierre Faucher’s "Sucrerie de la Montagne"
in Rigaud (no relation :-), renowned for its food and ambiance. There is live music, sleigh rides, maple sugar on snow, all in the beautiful surroundings of Mont Rigaud.
"...Designated an official “Site du Patrimoine Québécois” (Québec Heritage site), the sugar shack, located in the midst of a 120-acre forest of century-old maples atop Mont Rigaud, west of Montréal, transports its visitors back in time, providing them with a momentary glimpse of life as it truly was for Québec and Canadian pioneers."
Date: Saturday, March 22, 2014
(service starts around 12:30 - 1:00)
Place: Sucrerie de la Montagne, 300, Chemin St-Georges, Rigaud, Québechttp://www.sucreriedelamontagne.com/eng/index.php

Members can come after their saturday long run on Ile Bizard, or run in Rigaud before lunch.
From Sucrerie de la Montagne, there is an amazing 14km trail loop that will challenge anyone and there are a couple of (road) loops runners can do with the longest distance being 22kms (St. Georges – St. Henri roads)
