Hi to all,

This is the second time we will have our Canyoning Event. I our first event, we had much fun sliding and jumping down the water stream.

For those that do not know what canyoning is, here goes a short explanation from wikipedia:

"Canyoning (known as canyoneering in the U.S.) is traveling in canyons using a variety of techniques that may include walking, scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling, and/or swimming."

This event will be in collaboration with the Swiss Alpine Guides Agency in Interlaken, who are professionally trained in this type of activities. The place will be in Saxeten near Interlaken.

The price of the canyoning will be CHF 99 instead of the regular CHF 110. Included is the whole canyoning equipment (helm, booties, neoprensuit, bustransfer, snack, guides).

For you to bring along:
- Swimwear
- Towel
- Extra T-shirt
- More food and water (just in case)

The train schedule will be as followed:

Z?rich HB ab 09:32
Bern an 10:29
Bern ab 10:35
Interlaken Ost an 11:28

For those coming per car, you have to go the highway Bern-Thun-Spiez-Interlaken with EXIT Nr. 25 Grindelwald Lauterbrunnen. We will meet on the Station "Interlaken Ost" by the latest on 12 O'Clock, the time we will be picked up by the Swiss Alpine Guides.

There are only space for 15 people. For logistical reason, I will only set up this event without the possibility of RSVP "Maybe". Please sign up with "Yes" and then please confirm your status 2 days before the event. This case, you will give the chance for another person to take your place.

Please also check the status of this event the day before in case I have to postpone for weather reasons.

I will reserve a Groupticket to get more discount on this day. For this I need the following information from you:
- Are you coming from Z?rich HB (groupticket is only valid from this station) ?
- Do you have a Halbtax, GA or "None"?

If you are on the waiting list or haven't RVSP yet on the Friday 14th and you still want to come, please give me a call at[masked] to see if there is an opening, as there are always no-shows.

That is all for now. Hope to see you there!
