July Club Meeting – Trekking Poles

Leader:  Ian Powell, ipowell@eastman.com

Never used a pair of trekking poles before?  Not exactly sure how they are supposed to be used?  Why do they have baskets on the bottom, it’s not going to snow in July?  Why are the pesky straps on the pole, should I cut them off?  Trekking poles can be intimidating and sometimes a big ticket item to purchase.  At this meeting we will go over the proper use, adjustment and maintenance of trekking poles.  We will touch on the different options that the industry includes in their pole designs.  This is your chance to try out a pair of poles and see it they are something you might be interested in.
