A couple of business notes:

Leader's Duties: make decision "to go", or "not go", or "turn around" if the activity is underway. Keep the group together and monitor the condition of the group. Pick up the "First Aid Kit" from Mocha Rising. Locate an alternate leader if unable to keep your commitment..have fun..Be aware of weather conditions so as to advise participants on proper gear. Wait at all trail junctions to insure that all participants follow the leader.

Hiker Responsibilities: Follow the leader..stay with the group for the duration of the hike. Weather changes rapidly in the White Mountains..It is imperative that everyone has adequate weather protection, food and water should conditions change..The Over The Hill Hikers is a hiking group and participants should hike with the group

Dues: Like every year we have to collect money to pay for supplies, first aid kits, party gifts, awards, etc. So we are asking the usual $5.00 per hiker or walker per year..Please make out checks payable to mary Cullen , Box 312, center Sandwich, NH 03227

E Mail: In an effort to minimize mailings schedule changes and updates will be sent via email or posted on our blog..overthehillhikers.blogspot,com

any changes can be sent to marktaub@metrocast.net

Lists of completers of various rounds are available ..please keep Pat Russell up to date with this
