Process after agreeing to be Outings Host

  1. Host reviews Outing Info Sheet to verify contact info is correct, verify start and end times.

At least 5 participants need to be signed up by the deadline or the outing will be cancelled. The outings will be promoted in the weekly email and at meetings. Signups are online or by calling Ron Enns at 204-792-9012. After the outing is confirmed, others can still sign up until 2 weeks prior.
  3. All participants, but especially guests will need to sign the waiver. Ron Enns will ensure that this happens.
  4. After an outing is confirmed Ron Enns will create an email group for the outing, confirming the host and contact info. At that point the outings host takes over communication for the outing – logistics, questions, etc. Ron Enns will be available for support if necessary. Of course if there is an emergency requiring the Host to bow out, adjustments will be made. The Host should contact Ron Enns. Either an alternate Host will be found from the participants or the Outing will be cancelled.
  5. Ron Enns will verify registered participants as MFFA members, guests, or novices.
  6. Hosts should pay particular attention to novices or first-time outings participants to ensure they are feeling informed and included.
