TRACKING YOUR MILES
Mileage Lookup view your current miles
Enter Mileage For hike leaders to enter mileage
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 directly into the database using the Enter Mileage link within a few days of the hike. We encourage this, since it takes a big workload off of the mileage officer. A few hike leaders send their hike sheets to the mileage officer who enters the mileage for them, but this take longer.
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 since October 1, which is the start of the Club year.
If you do not wish others to view your mileage and hikes,
please advise Karen Zimmerman (317-691-8228;

At the completion of the Club year on September 30, the Mileage
Officer produces the Trail Blazer report which recaps everyones
annual and lifetime mileage. 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 used to take Bill. Besides recapping mileage, the
Trail Blazers include a "Year in Review" which summarizes key events for the
year in question (sort of a Club history). Starting with the 1968 Trail Blazer, reports are available for
every ten years up through 2008 and then annually beginning in
2011. You can learn a lot about the history of our club by looking at
the earlier reports.
