What we're about
Although this group in the main walks in the North York Moors area we are not limited to just that. The Yorkshire Dales feature, as do trips to the Peak District, Lake District and Scotland.
The Event Hosts are members who have stepped forward as individuals to put on walks. They are not paid and do this for the good of the group as a whole. Whilst Event Hosts have access to be able to set up walks any member can do the same. So if members have a walk they are willing to put on, which might be a favourite or really well known to them then we are happy to arrange and allow access so a member can do so. Please contact the Group Organiser or Co-Organiser to do so.
Photos: All members are expected to have a recognisable photo on their profile. It would really help us if your profile picture clearly shows what you look like, that way we'll be able to recognise you when you show up for events. So please, no long distance shots of snowy mountains, your car, your dog, glasses of wine, old school photos, etc. Please note this is a prerequisite and ALL members are expected to adhere to this and may be removed if not followed.
Some Event Hosts welcome dogs, some don't! Please remember that this is a walking group and please again, do not get on your high horse if the Event Host states no dogs - it's their personal choice, and there may be a very good reason for not allowing dogs such as passing through fields of cows, bulls and offspring!
It is an expectation that all members have appropriate clothing and footwear along with suitable clothing. Usually on average a walk will take around five hours with breaks for something to eat, which you will have brought with you, along the way. Average length of walk can be around ten miles - sometimes less, sometimes more. What is more important is generally the ascent and descent indicator which most walk descriptions include as well as distance.
If you see a walk you are interested in then RSVP for it. You may get on the walk or will be moved to a wait list if full. If you end up on the wait list then be patient, things can change. Under normal circumstances most people will get on a walk because the Event Hosts may change numbers going to accommodate when able to do so. Frequently if Event Hosts see a large number on wait lists then they may put another walk on to allow more members to walk, members are welcome to do the same.
If you RSVP going then please change this if cannot then go. We do sometimes have problems where a member effectively blocks anyone else going on a walk because they have not removed themselves from going or wait listed. If you don't turn up for a walk without notifying someone, and resulting in the group walking that day having to wait, then it is likely to result in your removal as a member.
Please don't join this group because you have joined everything going - we are looking for active members, not members that we never see and we will remove members who do not participate.
But finally please, please make good use of the group - many friendships exist as a result and lives changed. Enjoy!
