I know a lot of folks engage with each other outside of the team but I wanted to inquire as to what if any events or activities members would like to see the team try to organize for everyone in the coming months and summer season. Historically the team takes a break during the summer months largely due to low participation that being the late June-August period. If people wanted to stay engaged and social during that time we could try and host a few gatherings.
We have done some organized bike rides to parks and ice cream parlors in the past, and a few socials hosted by members in their homes. Out-of-town events (hiking mountains, camping etc) seem less doable due to organizing transportation etc but I'm open to hearing what ideas everyone has. I've tossed some ideas I have been playing with below to get things started.
Low Cost and Local Activities: PicnicsDay Hikes (Sea Wall, Cherry Blossom Tours, Queen E etc)
Nature Walks (Pacific Spirit, Reifel, Lighthouse Park) Beach Days Bike Tours
