WEDNESDAY OUTINGS - SNOW SEASON:
Another enjoyable Hiking Season has come to a close. It's now time to look ahead to the upcoming Winter Season. Watch out for the Evite invitation for the date of the first Winter outing.
City walks continue year round and, like our other activities, are very popular.
Check the Club hot line or email each week for details of the location of the upcoming Monday walk.
QUALITY TIME TRIP TO ENGLAND:
A number of Club Members went to England in October on a bus trip which was organized by Quality Time, our bus carrier. The group enjoyed sightseeing in London, York and the Costswolds and hikes in the Lake District and Yorkshire. Click here and scroll down to Canadian Walks to see photos of Club Members on hikes in the Lake District.
Hyperlinks to our growing repertoire of bespoke Summer SSOC maps are in the pages titled 'SSOC 'Maps'. To access this from the Menu System opposite follow the sequence which pops out sideways to the right:
The Club makes every effort to look after Members and Guests on outings, but the bottom line is that each person is responsible for him or herself.

We urge all Members to come on outings armed with a downloaded and printed 'Map of the Day'. This is especially important when we are visiting a new or variant of a venue.
HOW TO VIEW AND DOWNLOAD A MAP:
This is for anyone having difficulty in viewing and downloading a map:
You are asked to 'click on hyper link'. Hyperlinks are links which take you to a document held on the website one is in. Links take one to a document on a different website. Both take the form of underlined red text, as per the example below:
CG49 Jumpingpound Loop
Once the map is open and displayed you must download it. Different browsers have similar Download control icons. Sometimes you will see a 'Download' button; sometimes this is shown as a 'floppy disk' icon. Identify and click on it. The maps are often a megabite or two in size so the time taken to download can be several seconds or more, depending on the speed of your internet connection. If you have cable it takes only a few seconds, but not all of us are so lucky. Be patient and watch your downloading progress indicator.
LOST AND FOUND:
A list of Lost and Found items is included in the bus books.
