After much thought about the groups future and also my personal time available to manage it, I have decided to step down as Owner/ organizer of the Rochester Hiking Meetup Group. As of December 4th, 2009 I will no longer manage or assist in this group
It has been a great journey that I hope you all will continue for many years to come. We have grown dramatically and met friends we would not have had a chance to meet otherwise. I hope all of you have gained something or look at our world a bit differently from this time together. I know every time I am in the woods I look back on an event we have had or a situation that arose and I pop a smile. You all are special to me and I will miss your company.
My wish is to have you all vote on ONE new leader to run the group. I suggest using a prominent assistant organizer or anyone else with experience in the outdoors who may show interest in doing so.
Normally it takes 1/2 hour of time to plan, schedule, post maps for an event and some new hiking areas will need to be scouted prior to posting so we can rate the hike intensity level accordingly.
Here is where things get a bit confusing.......
We had a total cash income of $558.20
( according to our website financial tracking) I believe this number does not reflect paypal fees of about 45Cents per transaction times about 100 transactions that was also taken out by processing. ( possibly $45 or a net income of about $510)
. sorry.... confusing and hard to track 300 peoples transactions over 2 years time....PLEASE NOTE WE STILL HAVE OVER 100 UNPAID MEMBERS! Their fees are crucial to continuing this group!!!
I suggest the new leader address this issue immediately in order to be ready to recoup your payment cost.our to date group expenses total $515.00....
