KHC Newsletter – June 11, 2017

KHC News

  • Our Canada 150 Hikes are scheduled for this upcoming weekend.   We would be pleased if you could join us on top of Mount Mara.
  • Mosquito season has arrived.   Plan accordingly.
  • Orders for merchandise are going in soon so if you are interested, act now since a deadline is pending.
  • The Farewell Tramp for Paul is a hiking event as part of a thanks/goodbye to Paul Battjes who is moving to the Kootenays in July.
  • Our thanks to Greg Arvidson for his continuing leadership organizing kayaking events for KHC.
  • KHC has received a $600 grant from FMCBC to partly fund improvements to the Dewdrop Trail.  Our thanks to FMCBC.
  • The newsletter is being published once a week on Sunday mornings.   Subscribers get the newsletter by email and we are also posting it to Facebook.   Members can comment to any newsletter (see the comment box at the bottom of each newsletter).

Kamloops Hiking Club organizes many events throughout every month of the year and members can select the ones that match their interests and abilities.   For some that is only a couple of outings in a year and for others, it is a day each week over all 4 seasons.   The value of the membership increases for those individuals who make the most of the opportunities offered by KHC.

But there is another benefit to being a member of a hiking club.   When we go out on group hikes (inc. paddling and snowshoeing), we meet other hikers and over time, friendships form.   Sometimes these social networks of like-minded people result in additional opportunities to hike, paddle, snowshoe, or travel in small groups.    KHC organizes events, but members can expand that value to foster friendships, networks, and sharing.

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. Kamloops Trails
