The Caledonia Ramblers’ Board of Directors is creating a 12 Month Hiking Club Calendar that will display some of the best photos taken by club members on club trips, over the last year. The Ramblers have a lot of very good photographers, and our trips provide some really fabulous subject matter. What better way to select photos for each month of our new calendar?

We’re having a PHOTO CONTEST!

Join the spirit!  Be part of the fun and enter your best photos from your best trips!  Your photo could win a place of honour in our new Calendar, and you could win recognition in the Ramblings and on our Website!
