  • Snow now mantles the higher passes in each direction.   On our recent hike on Zoa Peak, hikers trudged through 4″ of new snow at 6000 feet.
  • We are looking for door prizes for the Potluck Dinner on Oct. 29.   Donations are gladly accepted.   Contact Katherine or Michelle.
  • The Banff Mountain Film Festival is returning to Kamloops Nov. 21 and Nov. 22.   Tickets are available at True Outdoors.
  • Although a few camps for next summer are already listed (link), the schedule will not be sorted out until spring.
  • To date, KHC has hosted/listed 220 events in 2017.   That is about 23 per month.
Club Business
The Board of Directors and a few hike leaders will meet in the next week to look ahead to the coming year.   Members can provide feedback to any Hike Leader or Director.   Some of the items for discussion will be:
  • Membership renewals, new member registrations, dates, processes, etc. for 2018.
  • Hiking groups – how can we keep groups together better?
  • More difficult hikes – fitness and experience requirements for participants
  • More difficult hikes – specific risks in the hike listing required
  • Dogs policy – expectations (collars, leash, rides, wildlife)
  • Guests policy – adjustments
  • Future Camps – registration parameters
  • KHC Social Events
  • KHC 2018 calendar

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.
