Trip Info - Registration by and Responsibilities of Participants


Day and evening trips

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, registration is required for all trips. Register by clicking / tapping on the Register icon for the corresponding event in the schedule. For single-day outings, registration will only be available close to the date of the outing.

Meet at the time and location described in the schedule entry.  For all outings, please bring a meal (unless otherwise stated, such as when we have potluck outings), water, rain gear, and sun-block.

Some activities have per-event fees. Each activity may have specific requirements, so please refer to the detailed descriptions for each activity.

Multi-day trips

Register by contacting the trip leader.  It's on a first-come, first-served basis as long as the leader thinks that you have the capabilities required for the trip until either the outing is filled, the deadline in the schedule is reached, or the deadline of the weekend preceding the planning meeting is reached. The purpose of the meeting is to inform participants of the details about the trip, arrange food, and arrange transportation. Participants must attend the planning meeting or make other arrangements that are suitable to the trip leader. The meetings are usually held at 7:30 p.m. on the Tuesday prior to the trip. Non-refundable deposits of $50.00 are usually required for multi-day trips. Some trips may require higher or lower deposits.

  • choose a trip suited to your physical capabilities and skill level

  • respect the judgment of the leader and the fact that you are part of a group
