Description

Trip Organizer Challenge

** NEW for 2018 ** Participant requirements reduced to 4 from 6 and short instructional courses also count.

As an added incentive for the many organizers posting club trips or courses and as a thank you for your contribution, the BCMC will be awarding the first 11 members who organize 6 outdoor club events, each with a minimum of 4 participants, with a $50 MEC gift certificate. Courses of any length also count.

Rules:

  1. The club event must take place outdoors.

  2. The event must be at least 6 hours in duration.

  3. At least 4 members must participate including the organizer.

  4. Trip feedback and attendance must be recorded on the website within 6 days of the event's completion.

  5. The start of this "challenge" will be retroactive to the beginning of our exec year November 1st, 2016.

  6. Credit is given to the primary trip organizer as shown on the Trip List.

  7. In the case of courses and practices, the course must be taught by club members.

  8. Maximum of one prize per club member.

  9. The trip must be primarily non-mechanized.

The Trips Chair reserves the right to refine and revise the rules at his discretion and shall be the final arbiter of questions requiring clarification.

Current standings will be displayed on the website. There is no requirement for entry other than filling out the trip feedback and attendance forms. Results will be automatically tabulated from that.

If you have any questions or comments you can email me via my link on the left of this news item or post them at the bottom of the page.

Good luck and happy organizing!!! :-)

Note: The standings are currently being maintained manually. If you have organized an event that you feel should qualify send me a message. If there is a strikethrough on one of your listed trips, it means that it could be a qualifier but the trip attendance form has not been completed. I'm giving an extra grace period as we're ramping up the competition so go in and fill in the attendance and feedback so I can confirm that the trip qualifies.

    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?
