Social Event – Plan Upcoming Hikes and Leads (09-22-2010)

The LA Trail Hikers will be meeting on Wednesday, September 22, 2010 to organize the trails they want to do in the months of October and November. It is a great way to plan out a few Sundays ahead of time so you can invite others accordingly. We will also like to have different hikers volunteer to lead some of the hikes. Any other ideas, comments, or suggestions will be welcome. We may even be able to plan some scouting for new hikes. This is also a great opportunity for new and prospective members to meet with current hikers to get information and an idea of what we do.

We’ll get together at Casa De Luna Coffee House at 7:30pm (we will have the back room reserved for us). By the way, they have great coffee & Tea. All members/fans of LA Trail Hikers are welcome to join in on this event to provide us some feedback. We hope to see you there!

Evening Hikes at Griffith Park

I thought it would be fun to have some evening hikes out during the week in Griffith Park.  I’ll try to keep these interesting.  It is always important to hike with a buddy and Live Sex try to keep from obstructing anyone else’s evening experience by not bringing a white light flash light. Instead please use a red,blue, or green light. You’ll see them posted as we have them.

OTHER

We discussed setting up the following:

SUB LEADS:  These Hikers will assist the main hike lead in organizing and maintaining the group in order.  This will give our hikers access to more resources of information and guidance on the hikes. Those who wish to be a volunteer sub lead please advise the Hike Lead/Hike Organizer so they may be listed as such.

EXPLORATION HIKES: These are hikes that allow more experienced hikers the opportunity to explore and ‘scope out’ trails that the group has not been on, or has not current  information for.  Usually impromptu and unsanctioned as one of the designated LATH hikes, the exploration hikes provide limited to no relevant details of the difficulty and type of terrain to be encountered.  These will usually be prompted by experienced members who wish to go on extra hikes, or to scope one for the group to do at a later time.

FUND-RAISING: We also discussed the idea of fund-raising to acquire membership with the American Hiking Association. There is a yearly cost.  If you would like to find out more, you may do so here:  http://www.americanhiking.org/

We are looking for dates and places for the upcoming events listed above (not to mention comments, questions, ideas, concerns, and opinions about this recap), if you have any ideas feel free to comment on this post and share it with our other LATH members!
