Having said this, the Event Organizer is under no obligation to take you or anyone else, if he/she decides, based on his/her best judgement, doing so would unduly undermine article 1 above.
One of the advantages of going on trips with others is the opportunity to carpool and share the costs of the ride to and from the trail head. If you choose to be rider the expectation is that you will help to share a reasonable part of the cost.
