Activities for December, 2018

Wednesday, December 5, 2018

AHTC Club Members, 

Wednesday, December 5th will be the last meeting ever of the Arizona Hiking and Travel Club. Rather than our usual general membership meeting, we've decided to have a happy hour at the Yard House Restaurant in the Fashion Square Mall. 

For those of you who've been there, Yard House has a great happy hour menu. Furthermore, the club will be providing a $10 voucher to all club members ($20 to family members) to be used for food and/or beverages. This will be a great way to kick off the holidays while sharing stories and catching up with old and new acquaintances.

The happy hour will start at 4:30 pm.

Because we need to provide the restaurant with a head count and purchase vouchers, this an RSVP event. In order to reserve your place, please email Dan Rothman ( no later than Sunday, November 18th and indicate how many will be attending in your party. 

We look forward to seeing you all there!

We will meet at the Burger King at Power Road and Highway 60 at 8:00 AM (leave 8:15 AM). 

The trail meanders through rolling desert before climbing and following a ridgeline to Big Hill (3,594 feet).  The final 0.1 miles is an easy bushwack to the summit.  There are great 360-degree views from the top.
