What we're about
Calling all active (and FIT for the activity you wish to sign-up for) retirees (or not yet retired but taking time for fun) ready to explore and play with new friends!
It's "summer" all year long now for us! We can do what we want, when we want! No more waiting for weekends and then having to try to find parking in crowded lots etc. We are free! We are looking for others who would love to get together for some fun (outdoors preferably) whenever we feel like it! Especially during the week when others are working and places are not crowded. While we will set-up activities to look forward to, those who are up for "last minute" gatherings can share their preferred "instant contact" info and we can text, email or call one another to invite for spontaneous fun.
To keep our group a manageable size, at times we may need to temporarily put a hold on processing new member requests. As our events fill up quickly, our priority is for our members to have a better chance of signing up for our events. We will add on new members as members leave.
We do expect our participants to READ THE DESCRIPTIONS of each activity and only sign-up for the ones that you know you are FIT FOR and able to easily accomplish.
We will aim to post activities for various abilities as some of us do have knee, etc. issues. So flatter, shorter hikes will be part of our repertoire.
For our PADDLES, we do need everyone to be able to transport your boat and all equipment to and from the launch sites unassisted. While we try to aid one another when possible, there is no guarantee that someone will be able to help.
DO READ ALL DESCRIPTIONS of the activities and the equipment needed for participation.
SAFETY FOR ALL is our main concern- and then FUN for ALL!
Regarding bringing friends: Please just have anyone who would like to come along join our group and sign-up for the activity online. It's free! Thank-you.
