What we'll do
BOOKINGS FOR THIS HIKE WILL OPEN ON APRIL 22
Time to get back on track and start making some real progress in our trek towards The Spit! This month's section is a lovely stretch along the beach.
THE WALK According to Barry's calculations, we're looking at a 5km round trip so, approximately 1 hour of walking at a leisurely pace. We'll probably head north along the beach and return via Jefferson Lane.
ORGANISER Barry Baker -[masked]. Please make sure your RSVP is up to date the night before and text Barry on the day if you find you can't make it at the last minute so the group does not have to wait around unnecessarily.
WHAT TO BRING Water, hat, sunscreen, comfortable shoes. Photo ID is required for entry to our surf lifesaving clubs so please make sure you bring your driver's licence or similar.
NEW MEMBERS WELCOME! If you haven't been to one of our events before, our monthly Walk & Wine is a great way to get a feel for what we're all about and to meet some new people. We've set ourselves the goal of walking the Gold Coast Oceanway this year - a 36-km track that extends from Pt Danger on the NSW/Qld border up to the Southport Spit. Each month, we'll do a short section on a Sunday afternoon, followed by coffee or drinks at the nearest watering hole. This is purely a social event and we take it at a very leisurely pace so fitness is not an issue.
COST We'll pass around the hat again for a $1 contribution to cover our registration on the Meetup website which is around $190 per year. We are a strictly non-profit organisation and any additional funds in the kitty are donated to the Springbrook SES each year.
OUR PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PHILOSOPHY We are not a formal organisation or association and take no responsibility for any mishaps that may occur as a result of our activities. As such, it is up to each individual to make sure they are capable of attempting this track.
