      Hi Fan, I just rescheduled the event to this coming Sat. Let's hike then instead. It is still quite wet, which is not very conducive to intellectually-stimulati­ve discussion :-)

    Hello everyone,
    Due to the rain, let's reschedule this hike to next Saturday (Dec 12th). I'll ask Rob to update the details. So, today's hike is cancelled, let's hope we'll have some sun on Saturday.
