Dear Sunrise to Sunset Hikers:

You are appreciated as a valued member of Sunrise to Sunset Hikers!

Let's count the ways:

First, you hike as part of the most popular hiking group in the world. Of our fifteen thousand members, we appreciate that you are one of the several thousand that are active with us. We especially appreciate those of you that are one of the several hundred hikers that regularly look at our calendar of events and hike with us on a regular basis.

Second, while we are grateful for your participation, you appreciate the forty plus event organizers that make us the most active meetup hiking group in the world with over 450 upcoming events. When you go on our hikes, you often thank us and post nice comments about our events. We love YOU for that!

Third, we appreciate your loyalty to our Sunrise to Sunset Hiking Meetup group and the friends that you have made in our hiking family. We know that you come to hike, but that you come back time and again to see your hiking friends. We appreciate the benefits that flow from your loyalty to our events and the many wonderful friendships that have developed within the group.

Fourth, we appreciate your respect for Meetup and its RSVP process. Your RSVP means something, a commitment to doing the event or a change your status if you're not able to attend. No event crashers, no late cancellations, and no shows in this group.

Fifth, you not only show up, you come willing and able to actually do the event that you committed to do, as described by the event organizer. We appreciate that you understand that we are a community that does things TOGETHER, not some self serving hiking free for all.

Sixth, you not only do it together, you do it with a fun loving, positive attitude toward yourself and your hiking buddies. You make it work, even with the inevitable event challenges. And you make it FUN! There are no naysayers in this hiking group.

Seventh, we appreciate and celebrate our diversity and we respect each other. Coming from many different places, we understand that we are mainly about hiking and outdoor fun. We are very careful not to take the group into becoming a dating Meetup hookup. And yet, we are working on our sixth marriage and countless friendships of members having met on our hiking trails.

The Meetup phenomenon is all about developing community. Within the Meetup universe, Sunrise to Sunset Hikers have a reputation for being something special as the most active/popular Meetup hiking group on the planet. We appreciate all YOU do to make Sunrise to Sunset Hikers the best we can be.

Thank you,
