Is RSVP necessary? I really don't need another account that I have to register for!

Thanks.

If you show up without having RSVP-ed you won't be turned away. Hope to see you there! :D

You and me both, Guy. I currently have 82 different passwords for all the sites I've been forced to register for. Some of them make me change my passwords every 3 months. I am so done with trying to keep track of everything!! :(

FYI, you don't need to create an account to register (that is optional); however, I did find that you can't register with Safari, so I had to open up another browser.

Thanks to everyone who joined us at Dig a Pony yesterday! It was a fun and successful event and we raised $1500 for Trailkeepers of Oregon! You can see pictures from the event on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TrailkeepersOr ... 4887893911

If you're in search of Christmas gifts we still have some calendars left. :D

The event seemed to have changed to have more of a Trail Keepers than Oregon Hikers feel/emphasis to it, was that the intent?

This isn't a criticism just an observation.

Attendance was pretty low at the Oregon Hikers Meet n Deet last year so we tried a new format this year. The point of the event was always to celebrate hiking and give hikers a chance to socialize and that hasn't changed. And we still had the raffle and the calendar sales. But this year we also placed an emphasis on fundraising for TKO so that we can keep running the forum and field guide, as well as carry out TKO's mission. Ultimately it was still a fun social gathering for hikers. :D
