Transition Time

As 2014 closes, we can look back and ahead to 2015

  • about 170 event-days were scheduled in the last year
  • A small number of events were cancelled for rain, cold weather, and unforeseen circumstances, but 93% of scheduled/booked events were completed
  • The club had 201 members in 2014, of which about 55% of those were active participants.
  • A number of camps and backpacks were successful events in 2014 and more are planned for 2015.
  • The Peaks Series was successful in its first year.
  • KHC included a number of snowshoeing, paddling, and cycling events over the year.
  • The Board of Directors was active this year and a number of initiatives were completed – a shared membership database, online waivers, online registration systems, adjusted insurance coverage, standard operating procedures, a new website, revised event templates, recruitment of more event leaders, added safety equipment, more benefits for members, a photo contest and calendar, social events, and improved communications.
  • An AGM is scheduled for March and members are invited to participate.
  • We start 2015 with about 170 full members, with another 25 or so that still need to complete their fees or waivers.   Registration will close January 31st.
  • About 70 new members are signed up and have begun to register for events already.
  • January events are already scheduled and February and March events are being added as event leader confirm their personal schedules.
  • Some backpacking and camps are in early planning stages.
  • Recruitment of more event leaders will remain an important goal for 2015.
  • For the most part, the successful plan for offering lots of events for Club members will be the ongoing plan for 2015.

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
