Organizing or attending events added on HAZ is your full responsibility and you render HAZ exempt from any responsibilty for anything.

For best results +Add triplogs & photosets so others trust you have a sincere interest in the community. Then utilize the wish list or events forum.

HAZ is not a club that adds events. Events are for members looking to get together for hikes. Adding a sucessful event is not easy. This generally requires one to be socially adaptable to a wide range of personalities and great at planning. Adding on short notice rarely nets results. If you think you got what it takes and can hack the high posibility of no response or turnout then have at it and click "+Add New Event" above the calendar on the 
Events forum. AFTER adding you will see the option to add a date above the event which gets it on the calendar. You will also be privileged to link applicable guides so it will show up on those pages too. Adventure awaits, get out and explore!
