Guest Hiker Responsibilities
NO GUESTS ARE ALLOWED ON OUR HIKES RIGHT NOW DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID19 RESTRICTIONS.
Acknowledging that members often wish to bring guests to its hikes and social events, the Hiking Club welcomes both resident and non-resident guests to participate in its activities in accordance with certain policies. These policies were developed to ensure that dues-paying members of the Sun City Hiking Club receive preference in Club activities. Guest hikers are expected to adhere to the same guidelines which apply to members, as outlined in the Hiker Responsibilities section.
Both resident and non-resident guests are invited to participate in up to three (3) day hikes per year. Non-resident guests, at a ratio of one guest per member, must be accompanied by a member of the Club. Resident guests need not be accompanied by a Club member. All guests must have the proper equipment for the given hike, sign the Sign-In Form/Liability Waiver, provide emergency contact information to the Hike Leader and follow all Club rules during the hike.
After hiking with the Club three separate times, guests who are Sun City residents are expected to become Club members if they wish to continue participating in Club activities. Since the Club is for the benefit of Sun City residents, non-residents may participate in a maximum of three day hikes annually, even if accompanied by a resident.
