Hikes without Mileage List of past date hikes for which Mileage has not been recorded.
Once you become a member, we keep track of all the miles you hike with the Club. Every time you hike with us you are asked to sign a sign-up
sheet to attest you understand the Club's liability release. The mileage from the sign-up sheets is entered into a Mileage database on this website.
Most hike leaders enter the mileage for their hikes themselves using the Enter Mileage link within a few days of the hike. We encourage this, since it takes a big workload off of the Club secretary.
A few hike leaders send their hike sheets to the Club secretary who enters the mileage for them, but this take longer. Note, the same link to enter miles can also be used to cancel a hike, which the leader should do as soon as possible after the decison to cancel is made.
You can view your current mileage. Click on Mileage Lookup to see
the miles you have accumulated as well as a list of the hikes you have attended and led since October 1, which is the start of the Club year. You can also check you mileage earned on prior fiscal year hikes (only until Jan 1).
If you do not wish others to view your mileage,
please advise our Membership Officer and your name will be blocked from view.
The link Hikes Without Mileage gives a list of all past date hikes for which mileage has not been entered and were not cancelled (entry on the Mileage Entry screen), allowing hike attendees to followup with the leader who is either slow at entering mileage or simply forgot.
In January the Mileage Officer and Club Historian produce the Trail Blazer report which lists all members
annual and lifetime mileage through the end of the prior club year (i.e., September 30). Besides recapping mileage
the Trail Blazer includes a "Year in Review" which summerizes key events for the year just ended (sort of a club history).
See below for links to the current and historical Trail Blazer reports, which are PDF files. Simply click on the year you wish to view.
Club patriarch, Bill Larrison, prepared the first Trail Blazer in 1968
following the Club's 10 year anniversary. Bill went on to produce the
Trail Blazer for 43 years, all without the aid of a computer. Today we
can assemble the report from the mileage database in a fraction of the
time that it took Bill. Starting with the 1968 Trail Blazer, reports are available for
every ten years up through 2018 and then annually through the current year.
You can learn a lot about the history of our club by looking at
the earlier reports.
