** So what's SWSW About? SWSW stands for Sticks Walk Stick's Walks. This is a book that is available to any Sacramento Walking Sticks member for free. When you walk an event for credit that is sponsored by the Sacramento Walking Sticks, stamp this book and when you get 10 different events, you receive a free "Stick's Buck" (a $3 coupon that will pay the credit fee for any Sacramento Walking Sticks walk). The symbol lets you know which walks are eligible for this program.
