Proposed Membership Information

Hi Everyone:

The Kamloops Hiking Club has had a very successful 2015. We have offered a wide variety of activities. The board of directors wishes to thank all those members that participated in the club’s activities.

As we look ahead to 2016, the board of directors would ask that you think about your registration in our club.  We have noticed that quite a few members are not active (some have not even logged in). Since we have a limit to the number of people that can join, we ask that you keep this in mind when registering. We have had active hikers turned away because we are at capacity.

We have been lucky to have support from vendors in providing discounts to members.  As we would like to continue our good relationship with them we  ask that returning/ new members respect our participating vendors. Please make sure that you have a photo id and
membership card to receive your discount. Please also  be aware that not all items are discounted, since it is at the vendors’ discretion.

To register select “Kamloops Hiking Club” on the menu and select your category.

This will facilitate an update to our information database. This is important, as hike leaders need contact information that is up to date. If your contact information has changed after
registration  please email membership@kamloophikingclub.net  with an update.

In order to get access to the website and event bookings:

1. Fees have to be paid
2. Waiver received.

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
