What we're about

We've been around for a while and have garnered a decent following.
Starting this meetup, we hope to be in touch with old friends and get acquainted with more outdoor adventurers, trekkers, hikers, skiers, bikers, travel enthusiasts (both hard and soft core types). Brainstorm new ideas for places to head to, organise more activities, build a network and pick up more volunteers and members along the way for the Community Programmes we have on at the YMCA!
