The coordinator will try their best to contact all of the members who have RSVP'd, but this is not guaranteed. Trip coordinators / leads of the Crowsnest Outdoors Society are volunteers, not certified guides. All members are responsible for assessing their current physical condition, the weather conditions, and watching themselves on the trail. You are responsible for your own safety and well-being, as well as any children or pets that are with you. RSVP Courtesy: If you have committed to attend and then cannot go, please ensure that you change your RSVP on this event. When the guest list is full, Meetup will automatically create a wait list. By withdrawing, it allows the first person on the wait list to be put on the attendance list. Please make every effort to do this at least 24 hours before the trip (although we understand this could be out of your control).
