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, 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.
