BEFORE YOU RSVP
For everyone’s safety and enjoyment, it is up to you to come prepared. Read the activity description thoroughly so you know what you are getting into. Adventure Specialists may bump anyone who regularly shows up unprepared or attends an activity that is outside their ability.
HOW TO RSVP
If you want to attend, click the “RSVP” button on the event page. For many activities, we charge a dollar or Trail Buck – this helps fund the group and discourage no-shows. Guests are welcome to most activities, but may be limited or restricted for extremely popular activities with limited space available.
BEFORE THE EVENT
If you have signed up for an event and your plans change, please cancel your RSVP and/or contact the Event Organizer as soon as possible to avoid being counted as a No-Show. Otherwise you are taking up a spot that could have gone to someone else. The Adventure Specialist will check the website for a head count just before leaving for the activity.
NO-SHOWS & THE CVT “WALL OF SHAME”
Here is our policy regarding No-Shows:
- 1st Offense: All is forgiven. Things happen…we’re all human.
- 2nd Offense: Congratulations, you made it into the CVT Wall of Shame! Now everyone knows how naughty you are!
- 3rd Offense: Removal from the group at the Organizer’s discretion.
You can check also check your status by going to your profile page.
CRASHING AN EVENT
Please understand that it is generally NOT OKAY to come to an activity unless you have signed up. RSVP limits are in place to ensure that everyone has a safe and pleasant experience. We already know that not everyone who signs up will attend, and we take this into account when making plans.
TRAFFIC AND TIMELINESS
The activity will begin very close to the posted start time, so please allow extra time for parking and traffic delays. If you will be late for a trip or unable to attend due to an emergency or last-minute change of plans, the Adventure Specialist usually posts his/her cell number for notification (although not all venues have cell phone coverage). The Adventure Specialist may or may not be able to wait for you depending on the schedule, but a map may be left somewhere so you can catch up. For carpool activities, this will usually be on the windshield of a car in the parking lot.
