Guidelines to keep in mind...
1) No-show's & last minute cancellations (unless a real emergency) may keep you from attending future events. Attendance is usually accounted for the night before an event, and is tracked for all events which are only view-able by organizers.
2) It is not necessary to RSVP no to an event if you do not plan on attending. The no is available for those that "change" their mind after RSVP'ing yes to an event, but not at the last minute of coarse (see #1 above).
3) We never leave anyone behind and will always have a front person to lead and a sweeper to make sure this never happens. Safety first!!
4) Leave No Trace ethics apply to every event, no exceptions.
5) Be kind to everyone and everything.
