Who loves trips? Ummmm…. EVERYONE!!!!
Trips are the lifeblood of the club. The more trips we have in the calendar the more stoke out there, the more stoke the more members, and the more members the stronger the club … it's the circle of (outdoor) life! So, we are encouraging any and all members to consider coordinating a trip for the club.
Now you may think this is not for you because you are new or your skills are not strong enough, but as a trip coordinator, you are just that; a coordinator. You are not a guide, you are not a teacher and there is no need to be the fastest hiker, the strongest climber, the most knowledgeable camper, or the best runner. All you need to do to coordinate a trip is:
Have a desire to give back to the club
Chose an objective that you are knowledgeable about and fits comfortably into your skill level
Put the trip into the calendar
Be the contact/organizational person for the trip members.
Now there are some details behind each of those steps, but the executive is here to guide you and help you with the logistics and details so it runs smoothly. So please consider giving back to the club with the gift of your time and coordinate a trip.
If you are up for this challenge of planning a rad experience others can join you on, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you turn your dream into reality!
