If you are attending this event and wish to volunteer to help coordinate the event, please reach out to


  1. Notify the trip coordinator.
  2. Find someone to fill your spot. This cannot just be anyone, it must be someone with the skill set required to participate on the trip and/or course. The trip coordinator will still have discretion whether the replacement person is suitable. They are not “rejecting” your replacement to punish you, they simply want to ensure the highest level of safety is maintained on every event. 
    • If you are able to find a suitable candidate, the candidate must pay the cancelling member directly. 
    • The cancelling member is responsible for providing the contact information of the replacement to the trip coordinator. This is so the trip coordinator can provide information to the replacement candidate. 
  3. If a suitable candidate can not be found, no refund will be provided and the participant is responsible to pay their portion of any fees incurred by the Club. 

As per club guidelines, participants are responsible for arranging their own transportation.
