A message from our Chairman
 
Greetings Fellow Ramblers,
 
2018 is 6 months old already and now into the second half we go.What a fabulous extended summer we had this year. Great hiking weather, of which we took advantage. Of course too little rain fell but just of late we have had some good downpours which have helped the dam levels. A big thank you to all the leaders who volunteered their time and efforts in the Peninsula hikes, also the more unusual ones out of town. Much appreciated, everyone.
 
At the time of writing we still have a few dates to fill with hikes, so I am appealing for your help here in filling these spots, thus lightening the load of the faithful regular leaders. Please step up.
 
Thanks.
 
We have noticed that there is a core of hike members who are there most of the time, but the big body of the club is rarely seen. To all the invisible Ramblers I say come, take a hike more often.
 
A hearty welcome to the new members. We hope you enjoy your time hiking with us.
It is with sadness that I report on the passing of Gunther Bohringer. Gunther was a faithful hike leader of Ramblers for many years; a true gentleman with a lovely manner about him. Our sincere condolences to Laura. Rest in peace Gunther.
Thanks to Karen Watkins for organising notices of our hikes in Constantiaberg Bulletin and other papers. Also to Geoff Ayliff on Cape Talk 567 who announces the weekend hikes every Saturday and Sunday morning.
 
Safety and security are still issues on the mountains people, so please be careful when hiking.
 
Heed the hike leader's advice, stay together, have a plan.
 
Wishing everyone happy hiking in the coming months.

At this time we are not designating no-go areas for hiking, but will move a planned hike if needed, the hike at Redhill on 24 June being a recent example of this. If you become aware of security issues in the area around the time a hike is planned, please share this with the leader even if you are not planning to join the hike.

 

A very warm welcome to our new members

May you have a wonderful time with us.
