Trip Coordinator Drawings

 

As if the simple reward of giving back to the club that has given you so much was not enough, there's another great reason you should volunteer to coordinate a paddling trip: cold, hard, cash!  In an effort to get great trips on the calendar in advance for as many weekends as we can, CCC is putting money into the hands of trip coordinators.  

Weekly $50 drawings will be awarded to CCC trip coordinators:

  • (Excludes individual trips coordinated at the Easter Weekend club event.)  
  • (Excludes trips coordinated at the Memorial Weekend event)
  • (Excludes trips coordinated during Week of Rivers)
  • (Excludes trips coordinated during the Labor Day weekend club event)

The trip coordinators for qualifying club trips held during the previous period (through Sunday before the drawing) will be eligible for the drawing.  To encourage posting trips ahead of time, trip coordinators who post their trips at least two weeks in advance will have their name entered twice for the week of their trip, doubling their chance of winning.  A Club member may not win more than three prizes per year.

In order to be eligible for the $50 prize, the trip coordinator must meet the following requirements:

  1. The trip must be posted on the calendar using the Trips -> Add Trip feature on the club website at least 48 hours before noon of the trip (for example, a Saturday trip must be posted by noon on the preceding Thursday).
  2. The trip must be open to any Club member with skills suitable for the river.  The trip coordinator, as always, has the right to determine who has the necessary skill level.  For safety reasons, the coordinator may restrict the size of the trip; the coordinator is encouraged to post the maximum trip size in advance.
  3. CCC membership is required in order to be a trip coordinator!
  4. A trip report must be submitted to trip.reports@carolinacanoeclub.org within 30 days.  Trip reports submitted on the website will automatically email for you.

All participants in Carolina Canoe Club trips do so as common adventurers.  The club or its individual members may coordinate paddling trips but no one is considered leader of a trip.  All participants take the responsibility for making their own decisions including, but not limited to, whether to participate on any particular water body or section, what equipment they use, the routes they may choose to paddle, whether their skill levels and abilities are appropriate for the activity or whether climate and water conditions are appropriate for their participation.  In applying for membership to the Carolina Canoe Club (CCC), I acknowledge that paddling, like many sports, has inherent dangers which can be minimized through education and experience, but cannot be totally eliminated I hereby, for myself, my heirs, executers, and administrators waive any and all rights and claims for damage I may have against the CCC, its officers and representatives for injuries suffered by me in CCC activities.
