CORE: A Hiking Club… and More

Hiking – Scrambling – Urban Walks – Cycling – Skiing – Snowshoeing – Camping – Social Events

Welcome to CORE. Organized in 1999, we are a smaller club of active members of varying ages. Our primary activities are hiking and snowshoeing, though we also have active participation in scrambling, urban walks, cycling, skiing, camping, and social events.

Monthly Meetings

CORE monthly meetings are held on the last Tuesday of the month, with some exceptions. There is generally no meeting in December and the Executive may decide not to hold meetings at other times. This will always be shown in the calendar on the last Tuesday of each month, as well as details of presentations. The last Tuesday of November is reserved for the CORE Christmas party, and the last Tuesday of May is the annual AGM.

Members and guests are welcome. Meetings generally feature a presentation with an outdoor theme related to safety, equipment or adventure, by outside presenters or travel presentations by our own CORE members. These presentations are invariably interesting and ALL members are encouraged to come out, meet other members, and just maybe enjoy vicariously the experiences of other adventurers. Please refer to the CORE Events calendar and/or the CORE Twitter feed (@COREhike) for presentation details each month.
