4th Annual Hiker’s Jamboree, Saturday, February 14th, 2015 10:00AM ’til approx 12:00Noon. Sponsored by Penfield Trails Committee, to be held at Penfield Town Hall, 3100 Atlantic Ave (aka NYS Rt 286), located just east of Jackson Rd and west of Fairport Nine Mile Point Rd (aka NYS Rt 250).
This is a free event, no admittance fee. This event is not an actual hike itself, it is about hiking topics and concerns, etc.
The design of the event is to have a presentation of perhaps ~ an hour that is of interest to hiking groups and groups which share vision and commonality as related to hiking and open space conservation efforts, hiking trail development, maintenance, etc. Following the presentation there is an opportunity for all attendees to network among the many members of groups present. Each group that attends is invited to (not required) have a display table with any salient info they wish to provide for informative purposes and more. Challenges, successes, upcoming events, and much more are all fodder for sharing and discussion. Networking among varied hiking groups / members, happenings on any number of related topics, and specifically discussion of ideas and efforts to link trails established and maintained by various groups in efforts to provide an increased network of trails that connect.
Geography/demographics hoped to draw upon for attendance at this free event is hiking groups and related in approx a 50 mile radius of Penfield. So, probably worth having any area hiking group (S/T included) informing its members of this event for possible participation.

[As person who posted this event, I should qualify that the description I provide is my understanding of the purpose and function of the event, based on recollection of discussion I have had with a lead member of Penfield Trails. I have never attended the Hiking Jamboree so can not give a personal description/perspective of the event.] ******
you will find that Saturday Feb 15, 2014 10:00-12:00Noon was the 3rd annual Hikers Jamboree and a bit of a description is given. I just thought to look this up & include after I already gave my above dissertation.]
