Note: This page lists upcoming VOC trips. If you want to do a trip on a particular day and nothing is listed here (or you don't like what's listed), see the Trip Ideas page for lots of good information on planning trips. Also, everyone should be aware of the trip guidelines and driver reimbursement guidelines. If you need a hand getting your own trip started we've got an exec position dedicated to helping you out - the Trips Coordinator this year (2010-2011) is Christian Veenstra. He's organized a lot of trips and would be happy to help you get yours off the ground.
Less formal trips may be organized through the Trip Planning Forum on the VOC message board rather than on the wiki. If you are organizing such a trip, it's a good idea to post a link from this page to the thread in the trip planning forum.
