For recent club activity see Q1 '18 statistics.
The club executive is looking for a volunteer to store the slide show equipment including bulky screen, and to transport this to/from Sunrise Community Centre, 1950 Windermere and help with setup for all slide show dates. The next date is Sep 13, 2018.
For transport a van, pickup truck or a large SUV is required as the screen is approx. 8 ft. If you can help out and preferably live close to Sunrise Community Centre please contact the executive.
The club executive has decided to stop publishing the Raven. Instead current News items will be posted in this column. The hike schedule is updated continuously on this website.
Contact your A/B/C/D hike planner if you want to lead a club trip.

A few years ago long-time NSH member, leader of trips and long serving exec member Patrick Brown scanned all hard copies of the NSH’s past Ravens & schedules and made them available to logged-in members on our website (News >> Raven Newsletters and Activities >> Historic Schedules). He also created a spreadsheet (also visible to logged in members on our website, under Activities >> Past Events) of past hikes from 2001 to 2015. This spreadsheet is a great synopsis of our history and a great source of ideas for trips. It can be sorted by hike, leader etc. Curious, I sorted by leader to see who our biggest leaders have been.
In fifth place is Dennis Berryman who has led about 160 hikes. Unless he gets out there more often though, Alastair with about 148 hikes might catch up!
In fourth place is Peter Durnford with about 180 hikes.
In third place is Brent Ehrl with about 200 hikes who is leaping after Alan Banwell, in second place with over 200 hikes.
And in first place is IRENE MILLER who with 300 hikes under her belt is still consolidating her lead.
Can she be beaten???
