I phoned Margaret Dempsey today. She's out until Wednesday. Hope to get the forms froms her on Wednesday. Going to try get Bill and myself on the list of van drivers. Who else is over 25 and wants to drive? 


For future reference you can contact Margaret at the Cental Transport Pool on 01-7167525 or

Hi

The Club trip organiser/leader was discussed at the tdu today. We have a draft proposal which we are working on, currently it is 2 day training with loggin hours and an assessment focused soley on running trips on a voluntary basis.

Kieran, what kind of logging timeline are we talking about here? 10 hours or more?

The current suggestion is 25 hours with either an instructor or a qualified (whatever the hell we will call this person) I'm going to argue that they need to do x number of trips showing they can organise them, set up rescue and guide a group of people

How different is it to the Level 2 so? Is there any skills in that that aren't in the Level 2? I'd imagine moving water rescue and stuff, but would it be enough to say, have a Level 4 Skills and a Level 2 instructor?

I have put no thought into this by the way

I really like the idea. But I do not know how that would help the club out when it's a very similar timeline to instructorship (given that we have about 8 people active in the club who did instructor courses and haven't continued with it much).

I don't like instructing, but I have no problem leading a trip, so people like me might be able to slot in there?

And for instructing it's level 2 then three.

Is this river trip leader going to have access to lead a group on g3 water straight after away or will there be a respective level for g2 water you'll have to do first
