Field Trip Participation

Any chapter member whose dues are paid and are in good financial standing are eligible to participate.

A participant is responsible for:

Reading the printed information about the trip. Addressing questions to the organizer if the description does not provide enough information for you to make a well informed decision about your participation.

Performing a truthful self-assessment of their ability to negotiate the challenges &/or rigor of a trip.

Signing both a Field Trip Liability Release and an Ethics Practices statement. These need only be signed one time then can be kept as a paper copy or on electronic file in chapter records.

RSVPing on the meetup calendar page, including responding to any questions the organizer requests information on. An event organizer may determine a maximum number of participants. When that number is reached, additional RSVPs may go on a waiting list if the organizer chooses to do that. In order to RSVP you need to first register on the meetup page then you will have access to the RSVP function.

Providing everything needed for successful outing  i.e. adequate water and food, backpack, trekking poles or any other items that may be expected of each participant so as to not have to be dependent on others except in a possible case of emergency.

Sharing personal health information with the organizer or another individual on the outing if that information might be needed during the course of the event.

Realizing that in a group each person is responsible for themselves while at the same time being a member of a team when it comes, for example, to route selection or pace on a hiking trip, driving ability in the case of difficult or challenging access roads.

Changing your RSVP on the calendar page as soon as you know you have a change of plans should that occur so that others may have an opportunity to participate in your absence.

Dogs are allowed when the event organizer allows and when land management policy allows (some locations such as Grand Gulch, National Parks and possibly other areas dogs may not be allowed or may be restricted). The choice is that of the trip organizer. If the organizer says no, please do not dispute that decision.

Posting comments and photos, if you take them, on the calendar page as a way of saying thank you to the event organizer and to help CAS-GJ develop a documentation of our chapter activities.  If an event organizer says a site is sensitive and it is best not publicized on social media or in print, descriptions or photos should either not be published at all or should at least not disclose site location, specific observations or other details not already in the common public domain.
