Some short news items (newer items in italics):

  • New Events can now be shared directly to Facebook or Twitter by using the Sharing buttons at the bottom of event.   The two Facebook groups are KHC Members (only) and Kamloops Hiking Club.   The KHC Twitter account is @kamloophikingC (if you follow, you will get our Tweets)
  • The website has been further optimized for mobile users.   Check to see if it works on your device.    
  • FMCBC’s January Newsletter
  • Check out our Feature PageKHC in the Subway
  • We have revamped and revised our Guests policy, fees, registration, and waiver, all into one spot – details here.
  • Conditions have changed.   Backroads can be icy.   Stomped in snowshoe tracks are hard.   The snowpack off-trail has settled and is not very deep.   Snowshoeing events will all need careful consideration, except at higher altitudes.
  • The final deadline for completion of all fees, waivers, registration, emergency contacts, etc. is January 31st.  After that date, the membership will be set for the year and incomplete memberships will be removed.   We have about 196 fully-complete memberships right now.
  • Our thanks to Paul Battjes for wrapping up the 2014 Peaks Series.   Paticipants will receive toques and decals.   Thanks to Vital Signs, Picket Fence Graphics, Bone and Biscuit, and participating members.   Details on the 2015 Peaks Series are now posted (link).
  • The Events system sends our confirmation emails and reminder emails.   These have been further customized in support of both event leaders and participants.
  • KHC Members are Members-in-good-standing if they have completed their registration, online waiver, and paid their fees.   These members are not Active, though, until they have booked into and participated in an event.
  • New Events are posted each week.  They are posted when hike leaders  come forward with a date and location.   The best way to see these early is to check each day.
  • The KHC AGM is scheduled for March 8th.   More details tba.
  • Snowshoeing Season will run until about the end of March, but hiking events will also start in March.
  • Paddling and biking will start in April.   Backpacking starts in May this year.   These will all be posted as Events by our Leaders.
  • See you on the trails.

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
