O'Week Come and Try - Trip leaders wanted

Trip type: 

Trip Leaders wanted,

   O’Week is scheduled for mid-Feb and trip leaders are sought to help run Come and Try sessions. This is a fantastic opportunity for up-and-coming Trip Leaders to run simple, low risk activities.

Come-and-Try sessions are short taster activities to motivate new and prospective members. The intent is to run these on Saturday morning 22 Feb 20 in the lead up to a BBQ at 1200. Nevertheless, please feel free to run these at other times during the week.

To run a session just add it to the Trip Calendar, noting:

Title. Call the activity “O’week Come and Try – [NAME]”. This way we can distinguish O'week activities from other activities.

Registration. Because many new members won’t know how to register please add the following in the description: "To register, log in to this website, select the trip, fill in your details and click Create Registration at the bottom of the page. If you do not have a login click the Create A New Account link to create an account. Then register for the activity”

Some suggestions:

  • Bushwalks around Black Mountain, Ainslie or Majura
  • Trail rides around O’Connor Ridge, Ainslie or Majura
  • Sea and white water kayaking on the lake
  • Climbing on the wall – With experienced members belaying
  • Abseiling on the wall
  • Bouldering wall or around campus/National Library

More complex activities are fine but may preclude attendance at the BBQ at 1200.

Any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
