The deadline for submitting outings is the first of the month preceding the issue in which it should appear. For example, the deadline for submitting a write-up to appear in the Apr-May issue is March 1st. The exception to this is any outing that charges a fee, in which case the deadline for both the write-up and the budget is two weeks prior to the normal deadline. If in the above example a fee is being charged, the deadline for submitting the write-up and budget would be two weeks earlier than March 1st which is February 15th. Submit all write-ups and budgets to Donna Specht, OCSS Outings and Safety Chair. You can email them to her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Write-ups must follow a standard format and include the following information:
1. Date, Time, Event Title
2. Event Description, including elevation gain, round trip mileage, expected pace, etc.
3. Directions and Meeting Location
4. Items to bring, parking costs, don't forget water and sunscreen
