By joining this group, you agreed to the following:
DISCLAIMER: Activities this group are involved in can be risky. Every year people are hurt and killed because they go beyond their abilities, get lost, get caught in weather or bring the wrong gear. Event organizers and leaders are regular people like you and I. We are not professional guides, you are responsible for yourself. By signing up for an event you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for your own safety and will do the necessary research to understand the conditions of the event and the gear you require.
WEATHER: Weather in Colorado is unpredictable. If we know conditions are going to be bad, we will cancel the event. Many times storms form without warning. Check for weather conditions before you leave for an event. If you feel uncomfortable at anytime, we understand if you don't attend. Be sure and change your RSVP you can before the event. If you are not able to do this, be sure and send the organizer of the event an email letting them know you did not feel comfortable attending.
RSVP: RSVP 'Yes' only if you definitely plan to come. If you change your mind, be sure and update your RSVP. We strictly enforce our No Show and Late Drop policy. Our policy is to charge $4 for each event you either dropped with 24 hours or did not attend. Some reasons for not attending are excused if you contact us within 24 hours of the event start.
Most of our events are limited in the number of people that can attend. These limits are set by the Forest Service or the governing agency of the place we are visiting. Signing up for an event and not showing up or dropping late takes away an opportunity from someone else.
FEES: There is a $2 donation per weekend event, $1 for after work events. If you sign up for an event and drop out within 24 hours or do not show up without good reason, there is a $4 fee to remain in the group. A lot of work goes into planning events. If everyone takes on a small share, we can keep the group growing and continue to offer high quality events for you to enjoy.
COURTESY: Please be courteous to your fellow members as well as the event organizers. Be sure and give your carpool driver money for gas. Hiking is free when you are not in a group. It take a lot of planning to provide you with a fun experience. Sometimes things don't go as planned. Please be flexible and understanding. We are always trying our best to accomodate everyone.
