More structured approach to future trail runs (Doug):
    • Council discussed planning/schedule more club trail runs.
    • Mix of hard & easy trails to accommodate varying skill levels in the club
    • Coordinate with Tucson club members to schedule trail runs in their area
    • Open to doing weekend as well as extended weekend events
    • If you want to do or try a particular trail, put it on the event calendar
    [/list:u]• Look at scheduling runs at least 3 months out
    • More conscientious about listing all runs on the Events calendar, even last minute runs
    • Upcoming Runs –

Rally Feedback
    • Overall Feedback from surveys for the Expo was positive

    • Have some activities gear towards – co-pilots (spouses, etc); ex. Trail in which the normal co-pilot is the one who drives

Club Driving “School”
    • As a benefit of membership, especially for newbies, the club provides opportunities to learn from the more experienced and seasoned drivers
    • Can demonstrate techniques ex. winching, using high lift jack, etc. during trail runs
    • Ask for assistance or 1:1 time to learn new skills.
