If you plan to attend, please RSVP to this mail before 10p.m. Friday night, so we can have an idea how many people to expect. Call Hank Chay at 010-8423-0123 if you are considerably delayed Saturday morning. Please wear proper hiking footwear and bring a raincoat or an umbrella in case it rains.
Cancellation policy: We will not cancel the hikes due to inclement weather. Coordinators of the hikes will go to the meeting place and try to arrange an alternative activity (likely a long walk) if hiking is not possible. You are, of course, not obligated to follow the changed itinerary.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed for good weather.
