Roanoke Outdoor & Social Group
With more than 380 members this club seeks to bring together Roanoke Virginia Outdoorpeople from the Roanoke and New River Valleys who are interested in outdoor activities. Their goal is to attract a wide variety of people with varying interests and experience levels and provide a mix of activities (hiking, backpacking, biking, climbing, kayaking, canoeing, rafting, caving, etc.) that can be enjoyed by all. They also offer social activities to allow members to interact when outdoor activities may be limited. The Roanoke Outdoor & Social Group uses the Meetup.com web service to connect its members.
