SaturdayHikers have resumed hiking. During October-May please feel free to contact either Lynn (twiggyseymour@...
) or Bill (asialog@...
) if you wish to post a hike. The full list of hikes are shown below.
The following text is our routine reminder to hikers.
If you wish to volunteer to lead a hike, please email Lynn on twiggyseymour@...
or Bill on asialog@...
(in case one of us is away) with your choice of date (after checking if it is available below)and your name will be pasted on this list. Please be specific as to area of your hike so that others planning a hike will not duplicate in the same area, e.g. Tai O, Lantau and not just "Lantau". You will need to send out full details of your hike or activity during the week prior to the Saturday by posting them on this website yourself.
Please realise that you have responsibility as a leader to know the hike you lead well (eg. to have recced the hike recently prior to leading it). An advantage is take chalk with you to mark the correct turnings if there are several choices and in order to allow slower hikers to follow the correct way and not get lost!
Additional Information to be provided by the leader in an e-mail a few days before the hike:

WE REQUIRE LEADERS FOR ALTERNATIVE HIKES ON THE SAME SATURDAY SO THAT WE DO NOT HAVE LARGE UNMANAGEABLE GROUPS AND MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO TAKE PUBLIC TRANSPORT. WE ARE HOPEFUL WE CAN GET A 50-50 SPLIT (eg one easy hike and one moderate or strenuous hike). WE NEED LEADERS FOR 2 DIFFERENT HIKES. ALTERNATIVELY, ARRANGE FOR 2 HIKE LEADERS TO STAGGER THE SAME HIKE SO THE SLOWER HIKERS MEET 1 LEADER EARLIER AND THE FAST ONES MEET THE 2ND LEADER LATER.
