The #bchikechat takes place on Twitter on the 1st Sunday of each month at 9pm PST and is hosted by Outdoor Vancouver and Vancouver Trails. Using the Hashtag #bchikechat, participants can follow along, Tweet their answers to questions from the organizers, and engage in discussion about hiking and the outdoors.
How do the Questions and Answers Work?
Typically, @vancouvertrails and @outdoovan will take turns asking questions and each question will be labeled with Q1, Q2, Q3, etc. and the hashtag #bchikechat. You can then reply with your answers to each question number with A1, A2, A3, etc. and also include the #bchikechat hashtag so others can follow along.
An example of how this works would look like this:
@vancouvertrails: Q1: What is your favorite hiking trail near Vancouver? #bchikechat
@you: A1: I like Dog Mountain because it’s got a great view of the city. #bchikechat
