KHC Newsletter – January 14, 2018


  • Our most recent blog can now be read on the website – KHC’s First Week of 2018
  • Any hike leader (or member) can submit a blog article to the webmaster (Submit a Blog Post).
  • Our thanks to the Leaders and Co-Leaders who have organized and led events in the last week – Ed and Lois Hunter, John and Carole Moslin, Tom Blackburn, Doug Smith, Gerry Hoye, Paulette Gendron, and Peter Frew.
  • Membership registrations slowed down a bit this week and will likely continue at a trickle for the rest of winter.   We have about 225 members at this time.
  • In an effort to be more inclusive, that is, to provide events that meet the needs of all members, we are trying a new format on some snowshoe events.   We work to recruit at least 2 hike leaders and we can then break into two groups after starting out together.   It is easier in winter since the second group can just follow the first group’s snowshoe tracks.   Both leaders still need to know the route, and this will be essential on dry land hikes.   So far it is has worked well and we have been able to accommodate a wider range of fitness and experience.   This system will not work for some longer or more difficult routes nor would it work for some events without a second leader.   Bigger groups are more work for the hike leaders too so we will continue to let the hike leaders make the decisions on group size for their events.
  • Welcome to new members Bud MacRae, Peter Dittaro, Irene Dittaro, Jean Gotro, Dina Bison, Jonathan Chan, Bruce McNeely, Cindy Hayden, Francesca Brar, Sharon Balmer, Tracy Clarke, Sebastien Morin, Sylvia Nicholson, and Mike Maloney.
  • The date for KHC’s AGM and Potluck Dinner Social has now been established and posted as an event – 2018 AGM and Social (March 11)
  • The KHC’s next meeting of the Board of Directors will be March 4 at 3:00 at Cunliffe House on Lorne Street.

Doug Smith

Retired now, I get into the outdoors most days to hike, paddle, camp, snowshoe, or explore. Some of my activities involve more difficult routes, but most are suitable for moderately fit people too. Since I am out several times a week, I post one (or two) event(s) each week and I invite a small group of like-minded people to join me. Kamloops Trails
