Trail Blazers Recap of all members recent and lifetime 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 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.

Trail Blazers

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 summerizes key events for the year just ended (sort of a club history). 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.

See below for links to the current and historical Trail Blazers (every 10 years), which are PDF files. Simply click on the year you wish to view or access the archive of all historical Trail Blazers at the bottom of the list. You can learn a lot about the history of our club by looking at the earlier reports.
