We’ve made changes to the Trip Leader Recognition Program which now sees the top 20 leaders awarded + the others in a draw for 5 awards!!
The change is as a result of comments from numerous members who expressed concern about the amount of money spent on the volunteer party evening on gifts + also booze (for leaders + guests alike) as opposed to a more equitable reward for those leaders who lead/coordinate a lot of trips throughout the year.
So, we have looked at the figures and have reduced the amount spent at the bar and also the amount spent on volunteer gifts for the party. We can now reward the top 20 Leaders rather than just the top 3 + another 5 winning through the draw. See below:
2017 Trip Leader Prizes

+ Draw from all remaining leaders for 5 x $50 MEC Vouchers
Top 3 Leaders: $200 MEC Voucher
+ Draw from all leaders for 3 x Arcteryx jackets
Note from your Breeze Editor:
I was in the T&L – Training & Leadership – Committee when we 1st started this recognition program about 5 years ago. There was only a few trip leaders to recognize at the time and I am AMAZED to see how successful this program has been!! The number of our Trip Leaders has not only grown exponentially – and is still growing! – but so did the number and quality of the trips offered!!
I say Good work volunteers, keep at it & you’ll get that voucher for your next needed piece of gear 🙂 🙂
