Recruiting Instructors and Students for March or April 2019 Eklutna Traverse
Recruiting Instructor(s) and students for a March or April 2019 Eklutna Traverse on Snow Shoes, skis or similar. For convenience, recruitment is underway using this Meet up. The trip more than likely will be executed under the auspices of the MCAK as approved. Approval will be pursued in due time when sufficient interest is confirmed and instructors are committed. See http://www.mtnclubak.org/layouts/layout_mca/files/documents/misc/MCA%20Trips%20Policy.pdf to identify qualifications for various trip roles and to help assess your particular training needs. This trip may develop from it's current concept stage through execution. Getting in on the ground floor may enable you to influence planning over the next 12 +/- months. Participant qualifications and training opportunities will be given further attention in due time if there is sufficient interest. Contact Shaun E. Sexton at [masked] with questions, comments or concerns. Thanks. Over. SES
