The Weekend Trip coordinator will help facilitate connecting passengers looking for rides. A list of drivers, able to take passengers, will be compiled and distributed to those members looking for rides. The onus is on the passenger to negotiate a ride. Drivers carrying passengers, will need adequate Third Party Liability Insurance. Consider that most members will want to take part, or all of the Friday off before the weekend.
Note there is a strict NO PETS policy in place at all the venues.
