Some of you may know that we have Wolves in Winnipeg! Well, to be exact, they are concrete statues of Wolves, just like those Polar Bears. (The BOBs)
The MBGA has been collaborating with the Spirit Way committee out of Thompson for a couple of years now. We've been helping to sell and promote their Passports ($5.00) with which the goal is to 'discover' all of the Wolves' names using their GPS coordinates. (More detailed information on their website.)
Around Winnipeg, some of the 11 Wolves here have been moved and we've been asked to verify their coordinates. As a community, I think we can accomplish this fairly quickly. We're already down to 10 as I obtained the new coordinates for the one by Club Regent today.
Here is the website link that shows photos of the Winnipeg 11 and the current listed coordinates. (http://www.thompsonspiritway.ca/take-the-walk/wolves-along-the-way/wolves-in-winnipeg/)
If you are out and spot a Wolf and grab the coordinates, please post the Wolf # and new coordinates here. However, please do NOT post the name of the Wolf as it takes the fun of discovery out of this adventure.
