        Reports

                        President

Al confirmed all Board members were present.

Al provided an update on the following Hiking Club (HC) projects being worked with the Villages Board - #1 Re-work the Steps Trail into a gentler, single switchback trail, #2 Install new Picnic Table in NE corner of the Hill Lands, near signpost 50 at the second highest spot in the Hill Lands, #3 Install sign-In mailbox at the Joe Marsh trailhead and #4 create and install 2-by-3-foot map/signs at each trailhead. Al sent a letter to the Villages (Julia Meadows) on December 31, 2020 asking about the status of each project, and to make sure we get included in the next budget cycle. A response was received January 4, 2021 from her saying the Villages Board will be reviewing project requests during the budget development process. She will resend the HC submittal and subsequent answers to Tim as a reminder.  She will let us know as soon as she hears back.  Al thinks we have to let the new Villages Board to get settled in, but Tim will likely make the final decision.   

Regarding Cattle Grazing, Al reminded all that the HC members voted overwhelmingly to recommend supporting Hill Lands Cattle Grazing which was conveyed to the Villages Board.  Al said the HC’s position now is to support Bill Johnston (Villager, but non-HC member) if requested since he has a good rapport with the neighboring ranchers. HC member Jim Koski is willing to help as well.

Al reminded all that HC monthly minutes, financials and schedule of events are available on-line on the Villages website through the Hiking Club Portal.

Al introduced the guest speakers from the Bay Area Ridge Council (www.Ridgetrail.org) : Liz Westbrook, Trail Program Director (lizwestbrook@ridgetrail.org) and Simon Nageon de Lastang, Trail Planner (simonnageon@ridgetrail.org).  Liz and Simone plan to talk about “Bay Area Hiking Trails” after the business meeting.

                        Secretary

Gordon presented the minutes from the last General membership meeting on November 30, 2020 and made a motion to approve them.  A second was received from Michelle so the motion passed unanimously.

The preceding financial reports were approved by a motion made by Michelle and seconded by Sandy, which passed unanimously.


                         VP Membership & Website

Jim said 1 member dropped out as she’s in a nursing home. She has been in the HC about 33 years.  However, 3 new members joined.  So, we now have a total of 282 members. 

Jim reported on the breakdown of members by years in the HC as follows: 17 members have been in the HC for 1 year or less; 16 have been in 1-2 years; 93 have been 2-5 years; 89 have been in 5-9 years; 51 have been in 10-19 years; 16 have been in for 20 or more years.  Jim added that one member has been in the HC for 34 years. 

Jim reminded everyone that all minutes are being posted on the website. 


                        VP Hiking & Trails

Faye reminded all that the HC currently has no sanctioned hike due to the pandemic.  However, a few members are hiking on their own and are willing to to have other interested members join them if there is interest.  The HC is trying to notify all members about these hiking opportunities every week if possible.  Members should remember to adhere to all masking, safety and social distancing protocols during all hikes.  

Al added there are a few members that wish to hike away from the Villages (off Campus) usually on a Wednesday, and it is OK to join them. Faye tries to send out a notice to members about these hikes.  

Al said there is always an option is to tag along on a hike in our Hill Lands with Russ Glines on Wednesdays and/or Saturdays.  On those days Russ is willing to meet up with others at 8:30am at the Foothill parking lot or above that at the stables parking lot, and head up into the Hill Lands at 8:45am.  Russ is willing to tailor the hike to the preferences and abilities of the members joining him.  These hikes are a good way to learn about the Hill Lands of the Villages.


                             VP Social 

Due to the Pandemic, Michelle reported no events are planned for the next few months, but she hopes to be able to start events in the Summer if more members get vaccinated.

Michelle was thinking about the possibility of expanding the HC exposure into social media such as using Instagram. In a quick pole among the attending members, she discovered only one member used Instagram.  So, she will re-think social media for the HC. 

Al noted the HC will not have a Spring 2021 Outing, but the Board will try to plan a Fall 2021 Outing with more info to follow.

Al further added that he receives a few hardcopy newsletters from hiking related clubs. If a member is interested in this information, he suggested going on the following websites to review them: www.openspace.org (POST - Peninsula Open Space Trust) and www.scvas.org (Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society).   


Guest Speakers - From the Bay Area Ridge Council (www.Ridgetrail.org), Liz Westbrook, Trail Program Director (lizwestbrook@ridgetrail.org), and Simon Nageon de Lastang, Trail Planner (simonnageon@ridgetrail.org).  Liz and Simone gave a very informative talk about “Bay Area Hiking Trails”. 

Mission is to plan, promote and sustain a connected hiking, cycling and equestrian multi-use trail on the ridgelines around the SF Bay area. They want to link parks, people and open spaces for today and future generations.

William Penn Mott inspired the Ridge Trail in the 1960’s and the first dedication was in 1989 in the Purisima Creek area.  He was a great trail visionary who foresaw creating a trail around the ridge of the SF Bay Area, with a follow-on goal of connecting to a high Sierra trail.

As of Dec. 2020, there are 390 miles of the trails in place, but many areas need connecting to make entire trail contiguous.

The 300-mile milestone was reached in 2006 and they are currently on the path for soon reaching 400 miles, starting with the Berryessa Bart Station trail. It’s the first place where the Ridge Trail goes through a BART Station. So, it’s a new transit-to-ridgeline connection.  Also, there is new trail opened at Almond Ranch which is part of the Cartenas Straight Scenic Loop Trail. 

The Ridge Trail also covers areas in SF, Napa, San Mateo County, Mission Peak, Ed Levin County Park, Coyote Canyon (Baily Ave) and El Sereno Open Space, as well as several other areas around the SFO Bay Area.

Accessing their website (www.ridgetrail.org) you will find valuable information for on-line tools, trail maps, guidebooks, back-packing trips, bike-packing trips and mobile apps (including OuterSpacial and AllTrails for tracking purposes). 

The Ridge Trail operating revenue comes from the following sources:

25% - planning grants from the State Coastal Commission

10-20% - applying for a few other large and small grants 

50-60% - individual donors

The preceding Financial Report was approved by a motion made by Jim, and seconded by Michelle, and it passed unanimously.

It was discussed that a check from the Villages will be forthcoming for 2021 dues which will be approximately $7 x 280 members or $1,960.

Al expressed concern that too much money is in the General Account and asked about a withdrawal limit or the ability to shut off the Debit card for this account if the Debit card is lost. He asked for ideas to reduce his concern.  Sandy said she is notified at every use of the debit card, and that shutting off the card is not a good idea as it hampers deposits. Sandy will check our daily withdrawal limit.  Al thinks it’s $1,000, but we can increase that if necessary.  Sandy said there is no minimum balance requirement on any of our accounts. 

2020 Donations – All donations went out in December. Thank-You notes were received from the POST (3-times match), Senpervirens and the Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society.  SC Parks and Rec had a 2-times match. Some donation recipients send us a mailer/newsletter which Al receives and is willing to share with interested members. Audubon Society and the POST do that. Those are likely found on the respective websites as follows: www.scvas.org and www.openspacetrust.org. Also, we are now a 2021 honorary member of the Paralyzed Veterans of America, as a result of the donation on behalf of Steve Ford.

Sunshine Committee – Sandy sadly advised two HC members recently passed away - Steve Ford and Roy Wash. The HC made a donation to the Paralyzed Veterans of America on behalf of Mr. Ford, and to the Silicon Valley Humane Society on behalf of Mr. Wash. The Villages will refund Mr. Wash’s 2021 HC dues, while his wife will continue her membership.  We also have a member, Heroilda Martinez, who suffered a stroke.  We are sending her a card and the HC will refund her 2021 dues. Also, Terri Vivoli sends out beautiful hand-made condolence cards on behalf of the Hiking Club, and we thank her for her efforts. 




                    VP Membership & Website

Jim advised we lost 3 members but gained 3 new members.  Current membership now totals 283. 

Jim will report at the General Membership Meeting next week on member numbers by length of HC membership.

Michelle suggested consideration for adding a social media presence for the HC, such as Instagram or Facebook.  She said this might attract new HC members.  There was a spirited discussion among the Board members resulting in Al asking Michelle, Jim and others to look into this and report back at a future meeting. 


                     VP Hiking & Trails

Faye thanked Mary Fullerton for reporting downed Hill Lands trees from the recent storms so Faye can follow up appropriately.

Faye reported three levels of unsanctioned hikes (Rambler, Rambler Lite, Long Hikers) are well attended and following health/safety protocols. 

Faye again stressed the importance of getting outside, exercise and socializing when hiking, especially for the Rambler Lite hikers.  She wants these hikes to continue as sanctioned hikes after the pandemic.

Since Rambler Lite is a new hiker category, Faye says guidelines need to be established for it in the standing rules to be protected from any problems that may arise.  She asked the Board to think about this or volunteer to help her in this effort.  Dan Kato said years ago the HC had three hiker categories (Walkers, Rambler, Long Hikers), but after a while the Walkers were eliminated for not being very active.  Dan also said there was a Pole Walkers Club, but that was separate from the HC.  Dan suggested if a third category is added again, it should simply follow the rules and guidelines of the other two.  Faye thinks the Rambler Hiker category should be a bit more restrictive, such as they must stay in the Villages.  She would create a fourth category below Rambler Lite if necessary.  Al suggested Faye, with Bonnie and Sy, do further research to see what has been written previously on Rambler Lite. Al feels Rambler Lites should be able to go out of the Villages if they want.

Sy commented that he and Bonnie previously presented to the Board that Rambler Lites would go with the Rambler hikers but go a shorter distance or shorter trail in the same area.  Sy also wondered why members are not notified about long hikes like the other categories. Faye will look into this and report back at a future Board meeting. Sy has his Rambler hikes planned through the third week of February 2021. 


                  VP Social 

Due to the Pandemic, no events are planned for the next few months, but Michelle hopes to be able to do a Summer Picnic if possible.

The outing to Chico planned for April 2021 will not happen due to conflicts.

Alternatively, an outing to San Luis Obispo/Morro Bay can be investigated for Fall 2021.  Sandy and Michelle will look into this and report back.  

Old Business

Hill Lands Committee Report

Al provided an update on Hiking Club on the following projects - #1 Steps Trail, #2 Picnic Table in NE corner of the Hill Lands, #3 Sign-In mailbox at the Joe Marsh trailhead and #4 Two-by-three-foot signs at each trailhead.  Al sent a letter to the Villages (Julia Meadows) on December 31, 2020 asking about the status of each project, and to make sure we get included in the next budget cycle. A response was received January 4, 2021 from her saying the Villages Board will be reviewing project requests during the budget development process. She will resend the HC submittal and subsequent answers to Tim as a reminder.  She will let us know as soon as she hears back.  Al thinks we have to let the new Villages Board to get settled in, but Tim will likely make the final decision.   

Dan says by his experience, if any smaller projects arise it will be easier and quicker to accomplish with a Work Request. 

Regarding Cattle Grazing, Al says that nothing will likely happen until the grass grows higher. Al also said one HC member emailed a suggestion to have the Fire Department inspect the Hill Lands.  Al said the Villages should do this, and it is not our place to do it.  The HC could suggest this if asked by the Board. However, a fire department inspection may give rise to other issues related to insurance and land maintenance.  Our position is to support Bill Johnston as he has a good rapport with the neighboring ranchers. HC member Jim Koski is willing to help as well.

Al and Jim advised the QR codes are all installed. However, the plastic coverings are not holding up well.  Michelle will work to improve this perhaps via laminating or will talk to John Trudeau who put up all the new trail signs. 

New Business

Al asked for help with future zoom programs.  He has Greenbelt Alliance for Feb 2021, but he needs March, April and beyond. Michelle suggested a new charity (based in Menlo Park) for the Pacific Crest Trail from Yosemite to Mt. Whitney.  They are helping Yosemite Park raise money for restoration after last year’s fires. Al will check it out.

3.    Reports

President

·         Introduced all Board members who were all present.

·         Al advised that the Upper Garden Steps trail was now taped off with Caution Tape by Villages Management, which was also done last year.  All hikers should be extra diligent if using this trail.

·         Al said Villages board put all trail improvement projects on hold or denied them, and the club will need to re-apply in 2021 for next year’s budget (2022).  Those projects include installing a mailbox at the Joe Marsh trailhead, installing large trail maps at two trailheads, acquiring/installing a new picnic table for the NE corner of the hill lands and Garden steps trail work.  Also, Al said some of these may be accomplished with a work order directly with the Villages.

·         Additional project requests for the next budget will include trail improvements for the Upper Meadow and Bay trails.

·         Trail maps have been put in a plastic box at the trailheads.  Also, QR codes have been put at the trail heads which will direct a cell phone user to the Trail Map on the club website.  This is helpful when there are no paper copies of the Trail Map.

·         Regarding Cattle grazing, Al reports the club is still supporting it, especially for fire suppression purposes. Faye reported the revised membership vote totals are [86] ‘for’ and 3 ‘against’.  Al submitted a letter to the current Villages Board on Nov 9, 2020, and an email response was received on Nov.11th from board President Mike Falarski. The response contained a good summary of the Villages considerations/actions over the last 10-20 years on the subject.  Al was surprised to learn that the Villages considered cattle grazing as recently as May 2020, but it was never approved in any previous timeframe. Any help from hiking club members to talk with current Villages Board members on this issue would be appreciated. Jim Koski and Bill Johnston are willing to work with the neighboring cattle ranchers on a win-win situation. It was mentioned that virtually all county parks allow grazing.

·         All hiking club members will receive a notice that dues will be paid in January 2020 through the HOA payment process.  Al reminded all that the dues are important to the club and remain at a very low dollar amount. He also appreciates continue club membership despite the current pause in the club’s social activities.

Secretary

·         Gordon said Jim Beyer is uploading the minutes to the website.  Jim asks that all attachments be in text format to support that effort.

·         Gordon made a motion to approve the minutes of the October 2020 General membership meeting and it was seconded by Cheryl.  It was unanimously approved.

·         In light of the current county lock-down, Michelle said there are no events in the near-term.  If there is any membership interest, Michelle offered to put together a social event via Zoom.  In any event, a summary of Hiking Club meetings/events planned for 2021 is attached to the minutes. Given the current health issues, please be aware this schedule and/or related details will likely change as we get into 2021.

·         Some hikers are planning to make the hike to the top of the Hill on New Year’s Day.  Michelle reminded all to practice social distancing and masking protocols.

 

New Business

2021 Donations and 2021 Budget – Al said the 2021 Budget and Donations list were already provided to the membership for review and was approved by the Board. He further advised we are utilizing the same 2020 amounts and recipients for 2021.  Michelle made a motion to approve this and Wate seconded it, and the motion passed.  A copy of the 2021 Budget and Donations list are attached to the minutes.

Slate of Officers – Last month all current officers were voted in as the slate for the same positions for 2021, and now they are willing to run for those positions for 2021. During and prior to the meeting, no other members expressed interest in running.  Michelle made a motion (and seconded by Wate) to approve the slate of officers for service through 2021.  The motion was approved by an immediate and unanimous electronic poll.
