Club Leader

This will be a separate page' Club Leader designation is appointed by the President for an outstanding contribution the club. It's the members who give back to our community and make the club what it is.

Becoming a Club Leader

If you fit the profile and think you're a Club Leader, email the Exec with a quick paragraph outlining what you've done and they'll review it.

If you're unsure if you've 'given back to the club', ask to an Exec and they can point you in the right direction. Mainly things we look for are;

  • Organizing and leading VOC trips, especially Beginner Friendly Trips.
  • Volunteering for and organizing workhikes to fix the huts and improve the club.
  • Having a 'cool idea' to improve the club and following through on it (or recruiting others).
  • Running 'Dry Schools' or other info sessions teaching others some of the skills you may have.
  • Demonstrating good judgment outdoors.

Clubroom Rules

Treat our clubroom with the same respect you would our huts or the outdoors and follow the Leave No Trace Principles.

  1. Plan Ahead
    • Schedule your trip to avoid times of high use. Club activities have priority.
    • Visit in small (VOC) groups.
  2. Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
    • Good campsites are found, not made. Altering the clubroom is not necessary.
    • Mind for the clubroom, it belongs to all of us.
  3. Dispose of Waste Properly
    • Pack it in, pack it out. Inspect your campsite and rest areas for trash or spilled foods.
    • Pack out all trash, leftover food, and litter. (Even if it's not yours)
  4. Leave What You Find
    • Preserve the past: examine, but do not remove, cultural or historic structures, artifacts or library books.
    • Leave rocks, plants and other natural objects as you find them.
    • Do not build structures, furniture, or dig trenches.
  5. Minimize Campfire Impacts
    • No campfires are permitted in the clubroom.
    • Don't share the clubroom code. (Because it doesn't fit elsewhere)
  6. Respect Wildlife
    • Protect wildlife and your food by not storing rations in the clubroom.
    • Avoid wildlife during sensitive times: mating, nesting, raising young, exam season or winter.
  7. Be Considerate of Others
    • Respect other visitors and protect the quality of their experience.
    • Be courteous. Yield to other users of the clubroom.
    • Let nature's sounds prevail. Avoid loud voices and noises.

Use of the clubroom is ultimately a privilege and can be revoked.
