Next Meetup

Monday Evening Hues & Views (1 Hour)
Our weekly walk in Gale's neighborhood, enjoying the expansive vistas and big skies from Braemore Rd. overlooking SFV. Some individuals have been attending weekly for months. In Late Spring and Summer, as the days lengthen and Daylight Savings Time is on, we enjoy glorious Sunsets (HUES). In Late Fall and Winter, we enjoy City Lights VIEWS. Plan ahead: This event convenes at a private residence, thus, attendees must introduce themselves to Gale (the host) prior to this event date (such as at the weekly Thursday evening walk - see calendar), in order to obtain the address. INFO (http://www.meetup.com/The-Porter-Ranch-Walking-and-Fun-Club/messages/boards/thread/50260919/) Gale will lead a leisurely 45-minute to 1-hour stroll within the boundary of Reseda Bl. /Tampa Ave. and Sesnon Bl. /Wilbur Ave. The selected route for Gale's Walk is mostly level with slight, if any, inclines. This is a good opportunity for casual walkers (generally, 1 mile >22 minutes -- you may use a treadmill to determine your pace). For those who are working on their cardio, a different host, or a substitute fast walker, will lead a brisk walk (same starting location and time, but a slightly different route) that includes some inclines and a faster pace. The pace is 1 mile in 16 - 20 minutes. THANKS to the hosts! Dogs: Ok, (if friendly with people/other dogs, socialized, and leashed). Please follow group, local and state laws. See "About us" section for dog screening information. Essentially, for the safety and well-being of everybody, the Organizer would like to screen pooches, in advance of their joining an event, for a variety of criteria, including temperament, size, sociability, age and activity level. Please contact Gale (http://www.meetup.com/The-Porter-Ranch-Walking-and-Fun-Club/members/520099/) with any questions regarding Dog Screening. Did you know? Every Thursday at 7 p.m., we walk for an hour in a different location. See our calendar for details and to RSVP. NOTE: If you RSVP that you will attend, then for any reason decide not to attend, please update your RSVP before the start time. IMPORTANT: Attendees are bound by the information in the "About Us" section specific to this group, as well as Meetup Terms of Service Agreement (http://www.meetup.com/terms/), especially Section 6.2. You are asked to review these items, and each individual event description in it's entirety, prior to attending any event. This is a fantastic group to enjoy for healthy fun and making friends. Fun and friends make it easier to do your 10,000 daily steps for your health. We want you to enjoy the benefits of this group. Our ALL-VOLUNTEER team of five leaders, plus event hosts, do our best to make your experience pleasant, safe and rewarding. If you have questions or concerns, bring them to us. Thank you for being a member of this group.

What we're about

We will continue to walk, but will now be scheduling many other fun events!

Event participants are required to be a member of this meetup group, and have made a "Yes" RSVP for each event you are attending. It is necessary for each member's profile to show a current and clear face photo, so that the event host knows who is expected. All organizers and hosts are not professional walk/hike leaders or guides and are volunteers. The function of the member or organizer is to organize the outing. Each person and the guest(s) attending a meetup is responsible for his or her own safety. By attending any event organized by this group, you are aware of the risks associated with the activities.

Please, as always, check with your doctor before starting any exercise program. Be aware of especially hot or cold days. You might want to alter your walk accordingly. Myself, Gale and the leadership team, is not responsible for any injuries that might happen before or after or during a walk. By joining this group, you agree to walk at your own risk. Please bring water on hot days and a sweater or jacket on cooler days. You take full responsibility for your walking pace and progress. There are some up and down parts to this walk as well as possible items in the road such as small rocks etc. It is your responsibility to walk slowly and carefully to avoid these possible obstacles. You might want to bring a flashlight to light dark parts of the walk as the days grow shorter. Remember: You walk fully at your own risk as soon as you join this meetup. Also on occasion, a pet owner might bring his or her pet to walk with us. All pets brought must be approved by the leadership team prior to your first event, and you, the member are only allowed to bring one, well trained and behaved and friendly pet. Please be aware of any allergies or fears you might have about a pet being near. Lastly, as we walk in the upper part of Porter Ranch, there have been sightings of some wild animals around these areas. So far, we have not encountered any, such as a coyote, but there is always a possibility. I am not trying to frighten anyone, only to bring awareness. Please read each event description of each walk/hike for specific details and added rules for each meetup. For example, we don't permit dogs to every walk. These are our rules and guidelines.

Thank you for your understanding... Now let's GET OUT THERE AND WALK!!! lol
