Everyone is welcome to the group, beginner or expert.
Hike/ kayak event organizers reserve the right to limit the hike size and screen potential participants to ensure their own safety and that of others in the group. Hike Organizer and Event Hosts will also try to post as much information as possible about the hike, however since there are so many trails in the area, we have not always hiked them before and are sometimes relying on published or posted information.
You can see we do many activities
There are many kayakers in the Charlotte area. Some use the Area Rivers and lakes, some drive to the mountains to experience natural whitewater and flat water rivers and lakes, and some frequent our amazing Whitewater Center here in Charlotte. This group will put together outings for any and all of the above activities 0 - 100 Hiking, Kayaking, Social / Etc.
We are keeping it laid back taking our time having fun taking lots of photos as we go.
Together, we will be able to travel to some of the more dramatic scenic trails, rivers, lakes, and places to be physically active at an easy to moderate pace enjoying the mountains, the vistas, waterfalls, open meadows, gorges, the wildflowers, the forest, the wetlands, plants, cascading rivers and streams, lakes, and all that nature offers in the four seasons. We even stop to take photos on our outing. There will also be occasional local trips in and out of the Charlotte area, as well as social events such as dinner out, parties, visits to the cultural arts, take a train somewhere fun, Zip line, Bus tours, overnight camping in the mountains, we go to Blues, Jazz Bands, Live Music as well as 60's70's Rock an Roll, Cruise in (Antique cars) and much more etc.
The name of the game is outstanding enjoyment, fun, and friendships with others , based upon a mutual love of the great outdoors.
This is a fun social group with open minded, happy and friendly people and to keep it that way we do require for you to answer the profile questions and provide a photograph so we can learn a little about you and are able to recognize you when you come to an event. Our group is a friendship group like one big family so at our events we always go to the host and let them know we are leaving and say our good byes, just like families will do. We care about all members and This helps to keep us safe. As well as giving our host a chance to thank you for coming. Please check in with our host to let them know you here, we leave no one behind in our group and will wait a few minutes for you (10 or 15 min).
Sometimes we will post a small fee on the event to pay for the food for the event.
Membership fee per person $12.00 ( couples as well per person $24.00 per couple) January1st - 31st.You are welcome to bring the same guest tree times but after that please have them to become a member. This fee will cover the yearly meet up subscription fee as well as other fees and some of the expenses throughout the year. The amount left over at the end of the year will then be used for either a special get together within the group or will be donated to a local charity. We will notify members of the amount we have left in the money pool and give everyone the opportunity to have their say as to how we should spend it. Most of our events you can bring guest for 2 event after that your guest should become a member. At times we will have a very few members only events only due to place and if it’s at some home it will be members only. So if you RSVP for the event and the site want let you bring a guest. That would be the reason.
We will meet occasionally to plan the excursions.
“No Show” policy. After your third “No Show” you will be suspended from attending any MeetUps for three months.
This does not mean if you have a true emergency and are not able to make contact with myself or other organizers that you will be considered a “No Show” but we do need to work harder on eliminating them from our MeetUps.
Please help us keep this group active and fun for everyone!! And please remember that our Event Planners are volunteers. We are doing this because we enjoy hiking, and want everyone else to enjoy it too.
