各位早上好!

 

首先宣布一条好消息,在全球1500万用户的强烈要求下,meetup.com这­个网站终于支持包括中文在内所有的语言文字了。以后我们之间的交流,包括活动描述,讨­论,邮件都可以用中文。由于有一些成员目前还在学习中文阶段,我本人以后的通知和邮件­还是以英语为主,或者带英语翻译。


不知道大家注意了没有,这两天开车道路两边到处都是漂亮的野花。为了庆祝加州户外­活动季节的到来,我们本周六将组织一次户外运动讲座,周日则是去Point Reyes的野花和海滩观光之旅。如果你这次没报上名也不要紧,今后将会有更多的活动­,比如下周的骑马和彩弹射击,当然也包括踏遍湾区的徒步爬山活动!


这些丰富的户外活动离不开我们所有不辞辛苦的司机,领队(hosts),和其他志­愿者的贡献。有了他们精心的路线选择,细心的计划安排,还有一路上对各种突发事件的应­对,我们才能更投入的享受自然风光。这里有另一个好消息:继去年Roman, Nancy, Hailong, Xiangying,Jenny之后,我们又有了Jianghong, Haining, Yinni, Leo, Yuechuan这5位户外爱好者成为活动召集人(event organizers), 他们可以全权协调和组织任何活动,非常感谢他们的加入!


同时我们也继续欢迎各位积极发起活动,自己定最想去的地方。 只要找到2个同行者,你的活动就能通知给全体成员。没有组织经验不要紧,可以找上面提­到的任何召集人帮忙  :)


一次集体活动需要所有参与者的配合才能成功. 为了保护大多数人的利益,我们有一些常识性的规定,比如不能迟到超过15分钟,更不能­缺席(在最后一刻取消也算缺席,no-show).  详细的规则以这里为准­。 特别要注意的是, 如果某个人一而再,再而三的缺席,这说明他不尊重志愿者们的劳动,那我们也有权不欢迎­其参加今后的活动。 所以各位报名后因为任何原因不能参加,请记得至少提前12小时取消报名(某些情况下,­比如过夜的活动需要提前更久,以具体活动的规定为准)。 一般我建议大家最迟在周五傍晚之前花1分钟查一下最新的户外活动日程表­,增加或者取消你的报名。 这里也提请各位领队注意统计参加人数,活动结束后标记缺席者。

希望大家都能在这里结识到好朋友,一起享受户外活动的乐趣, 谢谢!

Good morning!

 

First, the good news, under the strong request of its 15 million worldwide users, the meetup.com website finally supports all international languages, including Chinese. After this change, we will be able to communicate in Chinese, including event descriptions, discussions, e-mails. As some members are still in the stage of learning Chinese, I will continue use English for annoucements and event descriptions.

You may have noticed there are beautiful wild flowers along the roadside these days.  To celebrate the arrival of California's outdoor activities season, we will organize a hiking workshop and mixer on this Saturday, and on Sunday we will tour Point Reyes for wildflowers and beach sightseeing. If you did not get a chance to RSVP, not a problem. We will have more outdoor events in the future, including the upcoming horseback riding and paintball games next week. And of course, more hiking trips all over the Bay Area.

Such a variety of outdoor activities would be impossible without the dedication and contribution of our carpool drivers, hosts, and other volunteers. With their careful route-seleciton, trip-planning, and response of emergencies during an event, we the participants enjoy the nature more easily and worry-free.  We are very pleased to announce that, following Roman, Nancy, Hailong, Xiangying, Jenny in last year, Jianghong, Haining, Yinni, Leo, Yuechuan have become our event organizers, who have the full authority to coordinate and organize all events. Thanks for all of them!


Everyone, please continue to suggest your favorite outdoor activities.  After two members folow, your events will be broadcast to all members. It does not matter if you have little organizational experience, just ask for help from any of our organizers above. 


To ensure a successful event, we need the cooperation of all participants. For the interests of the majority of people, we have set some common-sense rules, such as be-on-time-or-within-15-minute.  Please check out the details rules here.  We esepcially discourage no-showers (cancellation at the last minute is still considered no-show ).  If someone has 3 no-show records in their attendance history, this is a clear sign of not respecting the time of our volunteers, and hosts will not welcome them in future events (the 3-strike-out rule).  So if for any reason you change mind after having RSVP-ed to an event, please remember to cancel your RSVP at least 12 hours in advance (in some cases such as overnight events, we need longer notice, check the even description put by the host).  In general, I suggest that everyone spends one minute by Friday evening to check the most recent calendar of outdoor activities, to add or remove your RSVP.  Hosts, please also remember to count the participants before an event begins and to tag those no-showers after an event.


I hope everyone find good friends and trip partners within this group, and to enjoy the fun of outdoor activities together!

Thanks!

Roman
