Hi to all,

This is maybe the last chance to squeeze some canyoning in before the winter comes! Scary aye how time flies by. ;-) Anyway, I personally didn't make it yet to any of the canyoning trips organized by Sven, hence I am organizing this trip and perhaps some of you also missed out so far or even want to give it another go.

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.

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