KHC Newsletter – July 23, 2017

  • Wildfires, area closures, and smoky conditions are making it difficult to schedule outings/events.   We appreciate the patience of our members for this summer’s program.
  • When high pressure zones sit over the Interior, the smoke will collect in the valleys.   There will be better hiking in the local high country on terrain over 4000 feet (like Stake Lake and Sun Peaks).
  • We need to be mindful of Leave no Trace hiking when we access the backcountry this summer.
  • FMCBC’s July Newsletter
  • Our best wishes for a speedy recovery to three of our hike leaders – Tom Backburn, Gerry Hoye, and Doug Smith.
  • Anyone can subscribe to the website and can receive posts/newsletters by email.   Go to the bottom of the website (widget) to subscribe.   Information on unsubscribing, changing an email address, or subscription options, etc. is found on the Website Help page.   The process is managed by a third-party (WordPress) and is set up so that users can manage their own subscriptions.
KHC Guests Policy
The Board of Directors will be reviewing the Club’s Guest Policy in the fall.   Information on the current policy can be found on the Guests page.   Members are invited to provide feedback and comments.   Feedback can be in person on a hike if a Board member is part of the event, by using the website contact form , or by telephone (contact us for a phone number).      Some focus questions are provided here:
  • Is the process of registering a Guest too onerous/difficult?
  • Is the $5 fee appropriate?
  • Should we have a separate process for family members?
  • Although Guests are welcome on most events, how can we be assured that waivers are still signed and that Guests understand expectations and guidelines?

Doug Smith

Retired now, I get into the outdoors most days to hike, paddle, camp, run, snowshoe, or explore. Some of my activities involve more difficult routes, but a few are also suitable for moderately fit people who like a bit of a challenge. 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.
