    Hi all hikers, it was my big fault. A big sorry to everyone, specally to Patricia a and Patrik the organisers. I thought I have canceled just my participation to this hike. I did it from my mobil. I recognise that a mobil-display is not usefull for using MEETUP. So it was a big big misunderstanding. I saw I have canceled this hike. I was shocked and very surpriced to see that any organiser is in the able to cancel hikes from other organisers. I will ask Sven if there is somethink that is improvable in this case. Patricia and me we had an exchange already about that. A big big sorry to all!!!

    Best Matthias

      Just to make sure, do we get the Postbus ticket at the railway station as well, or we get that elsewhere? I'm guessing a ZRH<->Chur to and back rail ticket is what we should get? Thanks!

      April 19, 2014

    • Patricia

      Hi zorraine, just make sure you have your trainticket, the one for the postbus you can buy at the busdriver, cheers, p

    Hi Patricia, I will go hiking with the meetup group for the first time tomorrow. Just want to be sure, does each of us, who is going, have to buy a ticket on his own? Or are you going to buy a group ticket for train and bus?

    Thanks,
    Dominik

      We usually buy our own tickets.

  • sigal

    I see it is full, what does that mean exactly?

    April 19, 2014

    • Patricia

      Dear Sigal, i do not see you on the list of joiners or people who want to join. You can only join if you are on the list of people who join, so as far as I can see you nor dog can join. Sorry, i hope it works out next time for you. Cheers, Patricia

  • Anne

    There is no problem if there more people coming right? It's just a walk.

    April 19, 2014

    • Patricia

      Dear Anne, unfortunately it is not just a walk, it involves a train and bus ride which are reserved for 25 people. So if you are and the waitinglist, markes as 'want to join', you cannot join. Unless a spot comes free and I send you personally an Email. Am sorry, i hope you can join next time. Cheers, Patricia

  • sigal

    Hi all, Looking forward to the Flims hike 20th of April hike (Patrick kindly posted this for me, I´m organising). Much appreciate if you could please let me know if you are NOT going to join. There is a long waitinglist and it would be a pity if people would miss out if there is a spot available. FYI I keep track on people joining, no shows are not appreciated.

    Update on the timing back: the Postbus is reserved from Tamins at 15.41 (faster connection than the one intially posted). There is an earlier bus 15.07 which is however not reserved, but you might be able to take anyway if you are earlier.

    See you at the hike! Cheers, Patricia

    April 18, 2014

  • Patrick

    I have been kindly asked by Patricia to post this hike - for any questions please contact her directly.
