IMPORTANT TRAVEL info to Fisher Frolic

Please note that the Kidney Foundation is hosting their 100km walk this weekend. 
See link for route:  http://www.kidneymarch.ca/prepare_route.html
Day 1 (Friday) starts in Millarville to hwy 22x then west to hwy 762.  So if you're driving out tonight, recommend that you come from the north (Bragg Creek) and then use hwy 762 to Millarville (just west of town) to hwy 549 which will take you to race site. Or come from Bragg creek to north entrance of McLean Creek.
Day 2 (Saturday) starts north of Bragg Creek (hwy 8 roundabout intersection) south on hwy 22 to hwy 66/22x intersection and then route continues all along hwy 66 past McLean creek north entrance.  Therefore, you MUST travel from hwy 22x west to the hwy 762 turn off and then travel south to hwy 762 to Millarville (just west of town) to hwy 549 which will take you to race site. DO NOT USE NORTH ENTRANCE INTO MCLEAN CREEK!
Day 3 (Sunday) starts north of Bragg Creek (hwy 8 roundabout intersection) and travels north almost to hwy 1, then turns east into Springbank area.  Guessing that by sunday afternoon, the marchers will be off of hwy 22, so don't expect any hangups on Sunday.

RIDERS:  Tentative Saturday Start time is 10:00AM for Club Ladies, 11:00AM for CMA, 2:30PM Sportsman/CMA Mini Senior. Sunday start time is 10:00 AM for kids, 11:00AM for trial.  Judge your travelling time appropriately!
