Let's grab a hearty brunch at TAP and then skate at MGM's very popular ice rink. If it rains we can stay inside to play or check out the Quadrangle's new exhibit-a collection from the Smithsonian.
While event hosts attempt to plan events that will work for everyone and will try to anticipate and head off problems, you should not participate in hiking events if you would not be able to safely complete the described hike on your own. For all group hikes, think of your meetup organizer as fulfilling a social function in getting like-minded people together. Please always review the event descriptions carefully. Learning about the terrain, conditions, local weather and your equipment before you start is your responsibility. Any attempts to increase the comfort and safety of events should not lead you to believe that event hosts are taking responsibility for your safety. By signing up for events, you are indicating that you are an adult who has the skills and ability, as well as the gear, to safely complete the described hike. Do not RSVP "Yes" if this is not the case, as we will be mainly relying on your judgment of your skills and ability. To read more about hiking safety, check out hikeSafe.com.
By RSVPing "Yes" to one of our events, Eclectic Exploring – Western Massachusetts and Beyond Group members and their guests agree to the legal disclaimer in the main group description, on the main group page.
As always, please be safe and have fun!
