Our Event Hosts We all want to have fun; however, we are all expected to be responsible for ourselves. The event hosts and organizers are not outdoor professionals or emergency rescue trained. Going out on an AOET event is similar to going out with your friends. (Join Now Click Here) (http://www.meetup.com/AsianOutdoorEnthusiasts/join/)
