Participant Information

Historical photo from BCMC archieveThis will be a fun, informal, and interactive info session for those members who would like to know how to organize trips. This session is best for those who have been on a few trips but haven't organized one yet, or are just starting to organize them... though all members are welcome.

We encourage you to post a new trip to the club schedule... a trip you want to take, set for the time and date that fits your schedule. 

We will discuss:
- How to pick a destination
- How many people to take
- Safety considerations
- Club tools available to you
- The process from posting the trip to saying goodnight
- The benefits of being a frequent trip organizer

And a Web tutorial on:
- How to post a trip online
- Managing participant lists
- Trip reports and feedback

Plus... there will be some delicious incentives, so bring your questions and your appetite :-)

If you have any questions/comments/suggestions before this session, feel free to call or text at 604-928-5812 or email at marlaina dot rhymer at gmail dot com. 

See you soon!
