BUSHWALKING REQUIREMENTS AND GUIDELINES:

1. Walks are planned ahead of time as best they can be. Sometimes unforeseen events require the organiser of the walk to change the date. If you've signed up, you will be notified if this occurs. Hopefully you can still participate.

2. Walks can also be cancelled. This is typically due to the organiser being ill or bad weather. Often these cases arise on the last minute. All organisers need to cancel a walk no later than 7:30am the day of the walk. Waiting later than that is very unfair to the participants.

3. You should always check your email and meetup.com prior to leaving your home before attending a walk to make sure there are no last minute changes.

4. If a walk fills up and you still want to go, email the walk organiser and see if they'll let you come along.

5. First aid kits need to be taken on all Blue Mountains or major bushwalks! I have one that I'm happy to let other organisers use if they don't have one and I am not going on the walk. Please make sure to return it to me the week after the walk is over.

6. Your walk ideas are encouraged so send them to me or another organiser. It would be nice to offer more walks so come on and volunteer to be an assistant organiser.
