A member must be in good standing as of June 1, 2012 to be eligible for the "first signup rights" for King of Prussia ski trips. The dates for first signup and open signup are determined by whether the trip is designated as an "early signup" trip or a regular trip.
Early sign-up trips: ( those trips marked with a * )
First signup occurs on a designated date in August (usually the second Wednesday - this year it is the third Wednesday - August 15, 2012) for trips taking early signups. If you are a member in good standing as of June 1, 2012, you may register by mail for these trips. Members who joined after June 1 may sign up for these trips by mail on or after September 1st or in person at the September general meeting.
Regular signup trips:
First signup occurs at the September general meeting. If you are a member in good standing as of June 1, 2012 you may sign up for these trips (or any trip) at the meeting. Members who joined after June 1 may sign up for these trips after the close of the September general meeting.
Payment (all trips):
Initial member deposit is payable by check only and must accompany properly completed and signed trip registration form. $35 of the deposit is non-refundable. No reservation will be accepted without a form and deposit. Reservations will not be accepted from non-members. A payment schedule is provided for each trip and must be adhered to in order for the member to retain their reserved spot.
CANCELLATION BY A MEMBER:
Full refund (minus minimum $35 non-refundable portion) IF SPOT IS FILLED. The leader will attempt to fill cancelled spot from the waiting list first. If spot is not filled from the waiting list, and the trip leader agrees, the person canceling may attempt to provide a replacement. Spots cannot be sold prior to exhausting the waiting list.
If a suitable replacement cannot be found, the member remains liable for any expense the club incurs, up to the entire cost of the trip.
If additional costs are incurred due to member changes (taxes, airline ticket changing fees, lodging, food, etc.), the member is responsible of the additional cost.
CANCELLATION BY THE CLUB:
In the event the club cancels a scheduled ski trip due to lack of snow or any other reason, the club will attempt to reimburse the participants to whatever level possible. This is dependent upon the cancellation policies of lodges and transportation companies.
Because of the changeable and unpredictable nature of ski conditions, cancellation due to lack of snow is extremely unlikely. If you feel that going on a particular trip is not worth your while, you are free to cancel, subject to the provisions described in the section "Cancellation by a Member."
It is highly recommended that each member who signs up for a trip consider purchasing trip insurance. Be sure to ask your trip leader for information on insurance options available to you.
