Want to organize hikes in HATs?

Greetings to all and Happy National Margarita Day ;-)

In the next three months or so, my schedule will be a little busy and I will not have HATs hikes every weekend as I usually have.  So I have decided that this is a good time to open up the group to people who may be interested in organizing hikes.

So if any of you were ever interested in starting your own hiking quests, repeating a HATs hike you missed, or just giving it a try to see if its something you may like, then just let me know and email me your idea.  Initially I will make you just a host for the event but if it turns out you like it and you get 12 people or more attending regularly then I can consider you making an official HATs hike event organizer.

The only request that I have from a potential Event Organizer is the following:

1. It must be hike of ~5mi or greater or camping trips are cool as well but only as base for hiking on those trips.

2. It must be in Houston or in Texas but with the idea that its meant for Houstonians (or Austinians).  All outside of Texas HATs posting will only be done by me or who I personally permit.

3. You are not doing this to promote your own group, business, or other personal agenda that has nothing to do with hiking or in the best interest of HATs.  Events to promote the  parks, trail building and maintenance, or non-profits that have links to the idea of hiking or natural spaces are cool of course.

4. Have, at least, a generally idea of what you are doing like the planned trail route. Don't purposely make it a free-for-all type of event  that will involve people getting lost and possibly hurt.

Otherwise, the event organizer will have the freedom as to the time of day, day of the week, length, and also RSVP limits as long as its not consistently less than like 8 people.

I may adjust or discontinue this idea as I see how this pans out in the next month or so.
