Announcement

GREETINGS from the Board of Directors!

The CMCNY Annual Membership Meeting was held on 1/15/2017. The Board of Directors for 2017 had been elected. Steve Huang, Jin Sun and Harry Chen, who had completed their terms, are retiring from the Board. We are very grateful for their leadership in the past years and are looking forward for their continual service in a different capacity. In the past year, there were over 40 trip leaders and volunteers serving selflessly to deliver the hiking, camping, kayaking and many activities for the club. The activities were well planned and very successful. The weekly day hikes had an average of over 40 participants. We appreciate their contribution and the small gift awarded to them at the meeting can only be symbolic.
The Annual Meeting has been the best opportunity to meet new friends and exchange outdoor experiences. At the event, people were discussing their plans to Macchu Picchu, Tour de Mont Blanc, the Patagonia, Norway, etc for their next vacations. The conclusion is usually making a new year resolution to come to the hiking more often. The Board and Officers of 2017 are looking forward to provide more opportunities for everyone to make friends and enjoy the outdoors for the months to come.



Saturday 3/25/2017 - 6 & 9 Mile Day Hikes/ Levels B & C
Black Rock Forest, NY
The Black Rock Forest is famous for its reservoirs, ponds and the ridges. The easier hike takes advantage of the carriage roads. The more difficult hike follows the trails on the ridges and visits all the view points at Mt. Misery, Hill of Pines, Rattlesnake Hill and Eagle Cliff. However no one will miss the views atop the Black Rock Summit.
