D5:Intro to Scrambling - Panorama Ridge

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION (There will be a test). THIS IS AN INTRODUCTORY TRIP, SO THERE WILL BE LOTS OF TIME TO TALK ABOUT WHAT SCRAMBLING INVOLVES.

 Rules of Conduct (clickable): http://www.meetup.com/Calgary-Outdoor-Recreation-Association-CORA/pages/Rules_of_Conduct/. By participating in this CORA activity, you automatically agree to follow the CORA Rules of Conduct. Please read them by clicking here.

RSVP:
Update your RSVP as early as possible, at least 48 hours before the meeting time. If you are unable to attend for any reason whatsoever, LET ME KNOW as soon as possible. You cancel in less than 48 hours without a “really juicy story” (involving flying monkeys or UFO abduction) at your peril; I may not take you on my future trips. This is not a dating service; either you’re committed or you’re not. Be courteous to those waiting to attend. If you do not let me know, you will be recorded as a http://www.meetup.com/Calgary-Outdoor-Recreation-Association-CORA/pages/Rules_of_Conduct/ "no show".

Please indicate in your COMMENTS if you can drive, if necessary. I need to know if we have adequate transportation for all participants, not your preference to ride.

Please ensure you complete the questions thoroughly.

Participation: The trip organizer reserves the right to move people on and off the trip or wait list, or to increase or reduce the size of the group, in order to match people to the trip based on fairness, ability, safety, and other criteria. Hey! It’s my trip.

My cell phone is 869-6550. I drive a Silver Rav4 (but I’m not a soccer mom).

TRIP WAIVER AND CONDITIONS: You must sign a trip waiver to attend this event. Please read the document and fill in your personal details, but do not sign it. Your organizer will be your witness. Yearly membership fee is $20 which lasts until the Annual General Meeting in February 2013. Alternately, you may participate as a non-member for $5 for the day.

This trip will provide you with a variety of terrain, so that you get a good feel for what scrambling involves.

Level:
This is a moderate to difficult hike on varied terrain. Lots of opportunity to explore both trail and hands on rock. An average level of fitness is required but our pace is moderate-slow. Please be realistic about your abilities. Please gauge your abilities appropriately. Organizers are not here to babysit you. I don’t want to “Waste My Time in the Canadian Rockies.”

Please reimburse some $$ to drivers for gas.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
