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. Leaders: Clevie Daniels and Ruth Graves.
UM Women’s Sports Fans
Our goal is to support UM women’s sports by attending at least one event in each sport each school year. The most popular sports in terms of section 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) 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. 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 afternoons, 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. The fee is $10 per session. Please contact the leaders for further information. Updated June 2020: We will be meeting on Zoom at least until the end of December. Schedule and charge for fall sessions will be announced toward the end of August.
Leaders: Susan Flint and Sherry Warden.
