  • This location is shown only to members

Hey all you "newbies" and anyone who needs a refresher. This will be a discussion and presentation on all things hiking. If you are new to hiking you'll want to attend.
We'll be discussing all sorts of hiking topics such as:
Why we Hike
Trip Ratings
Hiking books, guides and maps
Wildlife
Preparing for hiking
Hiking etiquette
Hiking Gear

and more

plus Q and A

 

There will be plenty of group involvement and hands on participation. It definately won't be a boring classroom type setting.

Everyone attending will recieve a DVD and hiking lists etc.

The seminar is being offered through The Slow and Steady Adventures Co. There is a $20 per person charge to help cover the cost of the room and materials plus refreshments.

    There is a lot more to hiking than meets the eye. Andy put it all out there in a sequence that made sense and with typical humor. Look forward to a hike and another seminar.

    Enter main doors, turn to the arena to the left and enter the arena. Go left along the boards and the meeting room is past the dressing rooms on your left. There will be signs up for direction also.
