Bend Hiking: Central Oregon Outdoor Adventurers Message Board › Important Message to Members
Hello Bend Hiking Members,
My name is Laura Donadio and I am excited to be the new Organizer of the group. Over the years the ‘The Bend Hiking Group’ has grown greatly in membership. Members have joined from nearby cities and beyond Central Oregon. Plus, as the group has grown so has the wide assortment of outdoor activities; kayaking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, etc. To capture the overall embodiment of the group, but keep its original essence, I am excited introduce the new group name – Bend Hiking: Central Oregon Outdoor Adventurers.
I have revised the hiking level guidelines from numbered levels to Beginner, Beginner/Intermediate, Intermediate and so on to help alleviate questions regarding one’s skill level and physical ability. You will find the ‘Hiking Level Guide’ with detailed descriptions of each level by clicking ‘Pages’ on the top tool bar, then scrolling down to the ‘Table of Contents’ section.
Dues - Starting October 1, 2013, ‘Bend Hiking: Central Oregon Outdoor Adventurers’ will be charging its members an annual due of Three Dollars ($3.00) to cover expenses of operating the group. Members will have the month of October each year to pay their dues. If everyone takes on a small share, we can keep the group growing and continue to offer high quality events for you to enjoy.
As a Member of this group, you will need to acknowledge that you have read and accepted The Liability Agreement (An agreement which includes a release of liability, assumption of risk, and indemnification clause) the Group’s Rules and the RSVP Policy before you will be able to participate in any of the group’s events. You will find all three of these documents in the ‘Table of Contents’ section of the ‘Pages’ page. After reading each document, go to your profile page on the Bend Hiking: Central Oregon Outdoor Adventurers site and acknowledge with “YES” that you have read and accept each of these documents.
If you have an idea for an event or you are interested in becoming an organizer, please let me know. We are always looking for qualified organizers to help out!
With everyone’s continued participation in the group as we move forward, we can take this group to the next level.
Now let’s get outdoors and enjoy!
