Sports Coordinator: Jitka Wiley
We meet on Tuesdays promptly at 9:30 a.m. (8:30 a.m. mid-June through August) rain, shine or snow. When there are thunderstorms, please stay safely at home. Hikes are usually three to four miles or about one to two hours; more distant hikes can take three to four hours including driving time. We never walk more than five miles, and walking speeds vary within the group. There is sure to be someone else who walks at your pace. For out of town hikes we meet to carpool. Trails can be wet! Insect repellent may be needed! When Ann Arbor Public Schools are closed due to weather, there will be no hike.
Update: September to December 2020 hiking schedule (PDF). We will not have any far-away hikes that require carpooling.
Leaders: Clevie Daniels and Ruth Graves
UM Women’s Sports Fans
Our goal is to support U-M women’s sports by attending at least one event for each sport each school year. The most popular sports in terms of member and guest response have been soccer, volleyball, basketball, gymnastics, and softball. However, notices are sent for all sports (except rowing and golf, which are hard to follow on-site) in four timing groups: Early Fall, Late Fall, Winter, and Spring. If we have 10 or more ticket requests, group tickets ($3 each) are available for inter-conference and Big Ten games.
Update: We will not be attending any events in person this fall. We are waiting to see if video options for women’s sports may be available.
Leader: Kay Erdman
Our Yoga instructor, Jasmijn Quon, provides beginner level instruction for this group. This is an excellent way to increase your flexibility and balance while getting a good workout. We generally meet year-round on Friday mornings, 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. The fee is $10 per session. Please contact the leaders for further information.
Update: We will be meeting only on Zoom until further notice.
Leaders: Susan Flint and Sherry Warden
