New Enhancement to the Mileage Entry Screen
All hike leaders are encouraged to enter mileage for their hikes. Simply access the Mileage page. At the top you will see a link for Enter Mileage. Select it and a calendar will display. Click on the day that matches your hike sheet and a list of hikes on that day will be displayed. Select your hike and enter the names and mileage of each hiker. As of September 20 you are now able to designate the hike leader if it differs from the name published in the schedule. You can also cancel a hike (un-cancel it too if that becomes necessary). And you can leave a comment for the Mileage Officer, if you encounter a problem when entering names (e.g., name not in database).
