2008-09-05- They're Off!!!

The tour began in earnest today from Luxton School in downtown Winnipeg. Luxton School is over one hundred years old and one of the oldest schools still in operation in Winnipeg.
Our heroes read the book "Zoom" to more than 250 students from grades 1 to 6.
After lunch, they visited another school, that was a late addition to the schedule.
École Robert H. Smith School is a french immersion Elementary School with more than 450 students. (I think David just wanted to delay his departure....we'll see if he is really going to ride "Farther, Faster, and Longer" on his new bike......)
They have a long road in front of them. Their next school is 392km away in Birtle Manitoba.
Attempts at getting photos of the action today were thwarted by FOIP (Freedom of information and protection act) Apparently, just as the photo's were being emailed, the teacher realized that a few of the kids in the photos had not had the appropriate forms completed by their parents...) I hope we can get more photos soon.
