Meetup Notes - Important!

Just a few quick things.


1. I'm noticing a LOT of people who are beginners signing up for Intermediate trips. We all know that we have the trip ratings for safety reasons and not abiding by them defeats the purpose. The following people will be removed from the Grand Island Trip if I do not hear from them in the next 7 days. I will send a followup personal email this weekend if I've not heard anything. If you believe your trail experience warrants a trip rating beyond Beginner please contact me and perhaps we can work something out. :

2. I've put in for a permit for the annual Pictured Rock National Lakeshore trip. As I've not had the time to begin organizing the trip until now, it's entirely possible that we may strike out on getting a permit. Therefore, I will not be posting the trip until I have confirmation from the Park Service of our itinerary. I made the request as flexible as possible with three different sets of sites in either direction on Labor Day weekend as a first choice and the following weekend as a backup. Hopefully one of these will pan out and we'll get the trip posted real soon. I apologize for any scheduling inconvenience this has made for anyone.

3. Lastly, a reminder that I intend to step down as organizer at the end of this year. It's been a fun two years but I feel like I can't give the group as much of my time as it deserves and I'd love to give someone else a chance to step up and make this group as great as it can be. Nominations will be in Oct with Voting in Nov/Dec. Feel free to nominate yourself when the time comes.
