Rainy Daze

Fall rains may affect one of our scheduled events.   Here’s what we do:

  • Leaders will comment to the event listing or contact the participants by email if the weather forecast is poor, usually 2-3 days out from the event date
  • Updates are posted to the event listing, as required
  • For out-of-town events, Leaders may have a Plan B in-town event
  • Leaders usually try to keep the same meet-up spot (for an alternate hike) to avoid confusion
  • Leaders may adjust the cancellation deadline time to as late as 30 minutes before the event if the weather is marginal
  • for participants that go out in events that do proceed, raingear is advised and a change of clothes back at the vehicle
  • some events may be cancelled, but Leaders will attempt to repost the event (in the spring)
  • members are asked to cancel on-line (with thanks)
  • We have relatively few cancellations over the year; we will have had about 140 events this year and have had less than 10 cancellations
  • once the weather turns cold, cold weather may be the limiting factor (we use -12 to -15 as a guideline)

Note – the 2014 Photo Contest ends soon (Nov. 1).   Link

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
