Also

It would help a lot if

  • participants call the trip leaders no later than 6 PM the night before the event;
  • there is no “may-be” or “don’t wait for me” ,

 (but rather a firm yes or no even the morning of the outing);

  • you let the trip leaders know if you will bring an additional person.
