    I agree with Marie and PaulK... the club would benefit from promoting a similar mid-week outdoor trips challenge with 3 or more participants.

    Agree with Marie. We need a 6-3-6 mid-week challenge!

    Really cool idea :)

    I've got a comment though:

    I don't agree with the "minimum of 6 participants" because:

    1/ Some people like huge groups and that is cool. But others prefer small groups of 3 to 5 participants. For more challenging objectives, such small groups might be better. It also makes it easier not to lose people in the woods and really move as one group rather than a series of little sub-groups with potentially poor communication between them. It also helps to have a more homogeneous group in terms of speed and level and it is safer when conditions are touchy

    2/ Some people post mid-week trips and those bring lots to the club as well. But mid-week organizers are penalized in this challenge since few people can join mid-week trips

    So this is a cool incentive, but it encourages large weekend groups which is only one type of BCMC trips. But maybe this is the type of trips that the BCMC wants to see?
