READING THIS EMAIL COULD SAVE YOU LOTS OF TIME not having to read more of them in the future..:)

Never say Fearless Leaderess doesn't love you! This is the fruit of a three-day project.

With devotion and down time, multiple Meetups have been scheduled for multiple months. This is the time of year when we try to "make hikes while the sun shines," and our calendar overfloweth.

To avoid generating so much email that people drop out in droves, an effort's being made to NOT send out announcements or reminders for every event. So please check the calendar often on your own. I WILL try to remember to send out non-automatic reminders only to those who are signed up.

But A couple of events deserve special attention:
May 12th -- we have a docent tour scheduled just for us at China Camp State Park, which is in danger of closing. We'll go on from there to Olompali State Park, site of a Miwok village. There are nice picnic areas and hiking trails and it should be a great day. It would be nice to have a good-sized group as the docents are eager to share China Camp.

May 19-20: Gilroy Hot Springs has converted their annual tours into a music festival! Check it out here: There are also occasional events at GYHS where one can actually immerse him/herself into hot mineral water.

June 8 -- Texan songwriter/singer/storyteller Ray Wylie Hubbard will be performing at Don Quixote's in Felton. We'll head down on Friday afternoon after work for dinner and a show. It's well worth the money! Ray Wylie usually performs for big crowds in other places; let's make sure he keeps coming back to small venues in California.

Friday, May 11, 2012

Hugh Ross is the President and Founder of Reasons To Believe. He earned a PhD in astronomy from the University of Toronto and has done postdoctoral research on quasars at Caltech. After studying the world’s religions and
“holy books” he found that the Bible is the only book that proved to be scientifically and historically accurate.
