  1. Anyone participating in a Champaign Ski and Adventure Club, Inc., trip must be a member of the Club.

  3. All participants in Club trips are liable for their own actions, personal losses, injuries and/or damages sustained on said trips, including but not limited to transportation in connection therewith. The Champaign Ski and Adventure Club, Inc., its officers or members will not be liable for any of the above mentioned.
  4. No person under the age of 18 may participate in Club trips unless accompanied by his/her parent or adult guardian. A junior member must have written permission from his/her legal guardian before applying for membership as well as for attendance on each individual trip.

The waiting list will be used in order of sign-up to fill vacancies.

Cases in which disciplinary action is taken must be brought to the attention of the Board. The Board, based on a majority vote, shall have the right to deny a member's attendance at future Club trips or expel that member from the Club.
  17. In the event a circumstance should arise not covered by these trip policies, a decision of the Board shall be final.
