$100 is the deposit amount for most trips. It is also the amount for the annual Training Partner fee. Hikers are divided into two teams; those traveling and Training Partners. Training is included in the trip price for the year that trip departs.
Your $100 deposit sets the seniority date of registration. This is important for first choice of travel dates and to determine who's on a waitlist. In January Coach Gunn will provide a trip cost estimate so that those that wish to use his easy payment plan can begin making payments. Making these payments is your continued commitment to the trip.
Usually by March Coach Gunn will have the itinerary and final trip cost available. You have two weeks to commit or drop. You commit by paying in full or continuing payments. If you drop all payments for that trip will be fully refunded or can be applied to a different trip. Your deposit becomes your Training Partner fee and you join that team to continue hiking with us. The deposit is only refunded if you have not hiked with us this year. USE THE DROP FORM TO INITIATE THE REFUND PROCESS.
You may pay by check or with cash (in an envelope clearly marked with name(s) and trip with year). These can be handed to Coach Gunn or put in the Jog Pot at a hike. Checks can be mailed to our accounting volunteers. You may also call in a credit card payment but a 3% processing fee must be added.
