HCL - Hike and culture around Lisbon

It is a soft hiking/ walking group who organize leisure activities in Lisbon and around the city between old and new friends.

This group only has a moderator and it is important respect the privacy the person who is organising the things.I hope everybody have good leisure moments including me ( the moderator). However, it is important you know I am not "working" in a professional perspective in those events and  I only organize these events for leisure reasons.

In February, 2019 hike and culture started to have more 4 ( four) event hosts . These new hosts contacted some participants who always appear in the events for helping with the annual meetup costs. 

The event hosts will help me in some future events for keeping the same volunteer spirit of this group.

Simple standard rules :

1- Bring always food, water, etc... It does not mean we could not have a lunch/dinner outside but it depends the number of people and other circumstances. 

2- Usually we will visit new places for me and others and i do not know what is going to happen and when the tour will finish. I organize the time for the event starting but we never know when it will really over. However, people are free to leave whenever they want :) . PS: Often I have to check the GPS for simple paths or I need help...

3- I hope everybody come with the spirit to help each other and not to complain...

4- Please, before coming, see all the details in the events including the updates and notes .

5-In the hiking events please come prepared for an entire day outside of Lisbon. 

6- Attention !, I am not an art specialist, guide tour, travel agent or an agent of tourist animation and this group is not a recreational association. It is only a simple group for people have fun in a healthy perspective and learn a little bit more things .

When we need a guided tour i will ask help for some organizations who have license and insurance for that .

7- Please come with welfare to have fun :). 

8 - In some events is really important to know who is going. For example when we organize cars for hiking, restaurant dinner/lunch, guided tours and other kind of events that we need a reservation. In this situation, please do not give up in the night before the event or in the same day ( of course, in other situations we can be flexible about time, number of people, etc..) 

9- Please do not send private messages about things you can publish in the event. 

10- If you think I have to do something more or better in these events, do not worry, I may be open for new job opportunities and you can make a job propose for I spend more of my time with leisure topics or for studying art, history, archaeology, etc.PS: Sometimes I am very sarcastic... I know ! 

11- Usually when we need cars we share the gasoline but anyone have not any kind of benefits with this... PS: As a matter of equality and for the drivers not to be harmed I suggest the gasoline adjustment should be made at the beginning of the trip because some people can return in different cars if they want to stay more.

12- Please , do not ask to translate this page in another languages because it is an international page and English is the most popular international language. 

13- Please, do not come to these events to impose your own rules and what is more convenient for you.Ps : Sometimes people forget what is common sense ... 

14- Please , let to go to bathroom and etc before starting the hiking /walking. Ps : It is important when we are a large group and we need to respect the group dynamic.

15- When we have a group discount in a Museum or somewhere else please bring money in cash and already changed because usually in this circumstances we buy a group ticket and in most of time they do not accept an individual payment for having a group discount. 

16- Please, when we have to share car, taxi, uber bring money already changed. Ok ?

17- It is very important all of you do not forget that hike is a sport that can result in injury and the hike leaders are not responsible for any injuries sustained during a meetup. The participants always attend at their own risk as independent walker

18- If you do not come or cancel an event in the same or in the eve day you will be not attending in the next few events.

19- Please, if you do not want to be in the pictures tell me in advance in the beginning of the event because I am always taking pictures for keep the good memories of these events.

20- Everyone taking part in the Group activities does so at their own risk. We do not employ qualified guides, leaders or first aiders on any of our events. The group works on the same basis of being a group of friends who go out walking or hiking together, who invite others to join them on this basis via the Meetup web site. Event organisers and event hosts assume no responsibility for anyone attending any group event. The Group, group organisers, event organisers and event hosts will not be held responsible for any accident, injury or loss occurring as a result of any Group event or in connection with travel to such event, however caused.

22 - Participants in Group events are reminded that outdoor activities frequently need specialist equipment (boots, waterproofs, etc) and the group does not provide these. Participants are responsible for assessing their own risk, the safety of themselves and their guests and the suitability of any equipment used.

23 - While accepting no responsibility or liability, for walks, hikes and other outdoor events, the event host, event organizer or walk leader may, at their discretion, not admit you to join the walk, hikes or other event if in their opinion you are ill-equipped for the terrain and weather conditions.

24 -For those who joined this event and do not attend it, change plans on the event’s date or the night before will not be able to attend the next 4 Hike events… Please, let’s be honest with ourselves, in the first place, and then respect somebody else's right to participate.
