**6PM **Wednesday Night Thetis Mystery Hikes 2018 (Level 2-3)
Hi hikers, Join us in exploring the maze of trails in Thetis Lake Regional Park for a midweek evening adventure! **Beginning this week, we'll meet at 6pm. Please bring change for the parking meter (or a credit card), as parking charges are in effect now that it's May. (You will get ticketed if you forget to pay). Our hiking distance is now up to about 10km, so expect hikes of 8-10km and beyond. Expect lots of mud and roots! Depending on group experience level, this distance will be extended up to 15km by the height of summer. The trails are mostly rolling, with some steep climbs. This is an ideal event for anyone who wants to improve their endurance and train for longer hikes in the spring/summer. I am always looking for 'backup hosts' for this hike in the event that I cannot lead it on a given week. If you are interested in acting as a backup host for this hike, please let me know. To bring/wear: proper hiking shoes, or runners at minimum (no minimalist footwear, please), water, snacks, and wear layered clothing. Gaiters optional for early spring (if you don't want to get muddy). It's recommended that you bring the 10 Essentials (see our information posting), including a headlamp for early spring hikes. *To read our waiver, go to the following link: http://files.meetup.com/1757378/FMCBCUNIVERSALWAIVER.pdf Membership: Our membership fee is $20 for 2018, or you may choose to drop-in for $2 per event.

What we're about

We are a club dedicated to getting outdoors. This club was started to fill a void here in the Victoria area for a club that allowed for a variety of events. The events are run by coordinators, and often allow for carpooling from a major transit stop. We will be running hiking, kayaking, cycling, paddling, backpacking, mountaineering, and almost any other kind of outdoor event you wish to suggest. Our events will come with a rating system, so that you will know what you're getting into. There will be a variety of events at different levels, so there should always be something upcoming of interest.
