What we're about

If you have a flexible schedule or days off during the week, this is the group for you !

This group is for people who want to get out and enjoy life with good company and activities during weekdays (Monday to Friday), whether planned well in advance or more impromptu as the weather permits.

Wouldn't it be nice to go for a hike during those nice summer weekdays? Go skiing during or after a snowstorm on a Tuesday during the winter? Enjoy an outing at LaRonde for a fun afternoon in good company?

I started this group as very few groups organize activities on days other than Saturday or Sunday. Although some groups I joined have hinted about getting weekday activities organized, they have never happened.

Let's bring some weekday adventurers together for some fun times!
