New Events

New events are being posted at any time.   The best way to spot them is to check the website often.

  • Hike leaders post events once they have confirmed their personal schedules.   Then they pick a date, time, location, and work out the details.   Once the write-up is finished, the event is posted.
  • Some leaders send a link to Facebook (KHC Members or Kamloops Hiking Club) right away.   Sometimes leaders add a Topic (New Events) to the Forums too.
  • Events farther down the schedule are often posted, but not yet enabled for registration.   This is done to avoid the book-a-place-then-cancel-later problem.      We usually put an asterisk after the event to indicate it is not ready for registration.
  • We have added a new field to the event template to provide more information as to when the event will be enabled.
  • Backpacking trips and camps are a little different.   Leaders may have to arrange  bookings, control the numbers, adjust the dates, check for readiness, and so on.   Its a lot of work.   Some leaders post them for expressions of interest and then resolve the issues before registering participants.
  • A number of members like to comment that they are interested in an event before it is published.   For regular day hikes (paddles, bikes, etc.), it is still a first-come, first-registered process.   Most hike leaders will not be contacting the commenters individually, unless that is specifically stated in the event listing.
  • KHC is very active right now.   Lets get out to hike!

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
