    It was good to get out of the city for awhile...too bad we didn't get to go to the summit but the picnic was more important anyway.

    Great hike, great company and turned out to be a great day.. One of the best views I have seen so far. I am so glad that we decided to try and continue hiking to the Wind-tower. Too bad we didn't have enough time to reach to the top (well except for one :-).. ). Perhaps some other time. Thanks to Daniel and Artur for leading and for showing patience for the slower ones.. The views were most definitely worth all the efforts!

    Lets hope for sunshine! :)

    Sorry, with the date change combined with the fact that I can't attend the picnic afterwards and it seems most are, I have to cancel.

    September 7, 2013

  • Andy D.

    I am already comitted to another hike and cannot lead this one. I will be looking for someone to host this event for Sunday. Has anyone attending ever done the hike? If I can't find anyone I will have to cancel. You will be allowed to attend Ha Ling, Old Goat, EEOR, Grassi Lakes, or Yamnuska ( intermediate only for Yam ).

    I'm really not overly thrilled about hiking in the rain, plus I'm not even sure which day the hike is, since there is conflicting information from the email and the site. If the hike is Sunday for sure, I can't make it anyways. And lastly, since there are currently enough drivers for the number of attendees, I'm withdrawing from my spot on this hike. Thanks anyway though and I hope all of you have a great day and maybe the rain will hold out.

    • Raymond H

      Sorry for the confusion. it's on Sunday and Andy will find someone to host it

      September 7, 2013

  • Felicia M.

    Is this hike being moved to Sunday like majority of the other anniversary hikes?

    September 6, 2013

    • Danielle

      Raymond just sent an email that the hike is moved to Sunday. Thought I'd post here in case people were checking the event. I'm glad - I was thinking it might be kind of miserable:)

    • Andy D.

      It is now on Sunday , would you be willing to lead it if I can't find an organizer??

      September 7, 2013

  • Cynthia R.

    I live out by Calaway Park and was wondering if there was a driver who would be willing to swing by on their way out and pick me up? It's just so dusty at the Petro Can/Junction on Hwy 22/1 plus I have a girlfriend's 50th Birthday party in town at 5:30, so I really don't want to drive into Shouldice as then I would have to deal with the drive back out and in again, when I should be getting ready for the Party...

    Who will commit to this brief detour that would help me out immensely?

    September 5, 2013

    • Cynthia R.

      I thought the naming just meant that it was on the Anniversary of the Club. Some of the other events on this day mention going to the potluck/picnic after, this one didn't. In any event I would still like to go if it's possible to get back in time.

      September 6, 2013

    • Cynthia R.

      Well, with the meet-up maintenance shutting down the site in the am, not getting a firm commitment from someone who is driving (and returning before 5:00pm to swing by Calaway Park), and with the rain forecast, I'm going to have to sadly bow out this time so I can be sure to make that 50th Birthday Party. I hope everyone has a wonderful hike and pleasant weather. See you on another event!

  • Judith A.

    Very sorry I can't make it but am in a 5-day yoga teacher training workshop that runs through Sat and half of Sunday. I couldn't pass it up as I needed to refresh my teaching skills and the visiting instructor is A-1 ! Next time!

    September 6, 2013

  • Michele L.

    Can't make it after all. Hope someone else can take my place.

    September 6, 2013

    Does anyone want to carpool from Shouldice Arena? I can be a passenger or drive and take 3 people. I have a group park pass if required for this hike.

    September 2, 2013

    • Felicia M.

      And I may be one of those drivers tomorrow, but I have to see what my passengers say. The weathers not looking to nice so there will likely be more people not wanting to attend the picnic.

      September 6, 2013

    • Sharon C.

      Sorry, given the forecast I'm going to cancel.

      September 6, 2013

  • Eric

    I don't think I'll be able to make it either.

  • Ania

    Due to such a high volume of emails regarding this hike and others I cannot remember who I said I would offer to drive. (I apologize) So if you contacted me and I said yes, please contact me again :)

    September 6, 2013

  • Alejandra

    couldn't get anyone to carpool with, so I'm not attending this time. Enjoy!

      As below, it looks like 2-3 potential drivers, so you'll be able to catch a lift with one of us.

      September 5, 2013

    Hi, I'm in the waiting list so can't I attend to the event?.

    September 4, 2013

  • Bruce

    Raymond, is it cool to RSVP for 2 hikes/scrambles? I see I am on the waiting list for the Ha Ling Hike. I'd like to go on the Westwind hike if I dont get make the list for Ha Ling. Bottom line, I want to be out on one hike or another Saturday. Thanks for the info.
