    Just a quick note: --If you are planning to come on our walk this week, that's great.
    But if you won't be able to make it, please change your RSVP to NO, so someone on the waiting list can come in your place.
    Thanks for being considerate of the other walkers in our group. - And thanks for your participation!

    We can include you later, by email or phone. Those who are able to attend the May 12 meeting will be sent the location and time once we find out how large a meeting space we need.

    The Edmonton Hiking/Walking Meetup Group is the longest-running Meetup group in Edmonton for hikers and walkers, and one of the oldest Meetups of any kind in this region. We were formed in 2006, and since then we have put on about 500 hikes and walks, in which many hundreds of people have taken part. Our current membership numbers over 1300, of which over 800 have been active within the past year. As these numbers show, there is no doubt that this group provides a popular and valuable service for the people in our community. With your help, we can continue that service and make it even better.

    So why haven’t you volunteered yet? If you want The Edmonton Hiking/Walking Meetup Group to continue, please send us your reply.


    Linelle, Bob, and Doug,
    Organizers, The Edmonton Hiking/Walking Meetup Group

    Thank you to everyone who responded to my request for your input on improving and reorganizing The Edmonton Hiking/Walking Meetup Group.

    As I announced in my previous email, we will be meeting on Monday, May 12. We’ll meet at the Zuppa Cafe, 9843 - 110 Street, at 6:30 pm. The location is a short walk (after climbing the stairs!) from the lot where we park for our Thursday walks, and right at the north end of the Grandin LRT station. The reason for the early start is because Zuppa closes at 8:00pm. If you can’t make it right at 6:30, please come whenever you can.

    After the meeting, I will send everyone on my list of responders a copy of what was decided, and what will be happening next.

    I'm not able to make it this week. Have fun.

    If you are on the Waitlist for this week's walk, you may come to our meeting place at the parking lot across the street from the Royal Glenora Club at 6:15pm anyway. There are usually some no-shows, and so there will probably be room for you to join us.

    We have a quota of 30 for our Thursday night walks, because past experience has shown that groups larger than that are hard for the organizers to manage.

    We will be having a meeting on Monday, May 12, to discuss this, along with other issues related to the organizing team for The Edmonton Hiking/Walking Meetup Group. Details will be posted soon.

    Subject: Help Keep Your Hiking Meetup Going

    Dear Walking Enthusiast,

    You know the great value that you get from The Edmonton Hiking/Walking Meetup Group. We now need people like you to come forward so that value can continue to be there for you and your friends in the future.

    If you care about the future of this Meetup group, please reply to this message.

    We are not asking for any specific commitment from you, only an expression of interest.

    Ever since the last “reorganization” of the group in 2008, it has been a team project, where the work load has been shared. Our team has now shrunk to the point where it is necessary to recruit some new members, with new ideas and energy. The more people we can recruit, the better.

    So if you are sitting on the fence, just say yes. Reply to this message. There’s no obligation. No experience required.

    We are planning to hold a reorganization meeting on Monday, May 12 (evening). If that is not a convenient day for you, please reply anyway.
