HIKE ONLY: CALYPSO BAY

This event is related to the Hike 'n' Bike from Runaway Bay to Calypso Bay. For non-cyclists who would like to join the group for the WALK SECTION, meet outside Harrigan's Irish Pub at Calypso Bay Marina and wait for the cyclists to arrive.

ORGANISER:
Kevin Gardiner - P:[masked]

RSVPs: Please make sure your RSVP is up to date the night before and text the Organiser on the day if you find you can't make it at the last minute.

WET WEATHER CANCELLATIONS:
I (Karen) will be away when this walk is on and I don't think Kev can access the section of the website where we normally ask members to leave their mobile contact details. As such, we won't be able to let you know if we have to cancel in the event of rain. If the weather is horrible, please use your own best judgement or call/text Kev if in doubt.

THE HIKE- approx 5km: 
Not quite sure where Kev's plans to take you but it will be a fair short stroll - around 1 hour

LUNCH:
Return to Drift Inn Irish Pub at Calypso Bay Marina for lunch. There will be a live band from 1pm for those wishing to hang around for the afternoon.

WHAT TO BRING: Plenty of water and snacks, good walking shoes (you won't need hiking boots), hat and sunscreen. Members are asked to bring a first aid kit on all hikes.

COST: We'll pass around the hat again for a $1 contribution to cover our registration on the Meetup website which is around $190 per year. Any additional funds will be donated to the Springbrook SES.

PERSONAL RESPONSILIBITY PHILOSOPHY: The Gold Coast Hiking Meetup Group is not a registered association or official club - it's really just a group of people walking together. As such, we cannot be held responsible for any accidents or injuries that may happen at or occur as a result of our events. We also cannot provide any guidance on fitness levels required. I always try to include the description from the NPWS websites but basically, it's up to individual members to decide whether they are hale and hearty enough to undertake the walk. We like to call this our 'PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY' philosophy!

      Pass. Loss of confidence to mix with newbies was bad enough thanks.

    For my first Meetup, it was so relaxed and enjoyable: perfect weather reflected by perfect company. Thoroughly enjoyable.
