Volunteering to run trips is an integral part of the club’s culture, and we want to both encourage and support everyone who is interested.

There are a few things you should know first though! Please read the guidelines, then complete the form below and we can fill you in. Jay MacArthur is currently our volunteer hero that reviews applications, and will take anywhere from an hour to a few days to do so depending on his schedule. Please keep in mind that we are entirely volunteer run organization and a little bit of patience goes a long way!
