To Attend this trip: Email or call trip coordinator ASAP. Due to the limited space / beats on the Connetquot, last year we had to turn people away. This will likely be the case again this year.
Priority will be given to EJTU chapter members who have accumulated "Points" from volunteering for the chapter over the past year. Please no last minute donations or volunteering in an attempt to attend the trip. A spot on this trip is intended to be a thank you to active members who have volunteered and supported EJTU's mission over the past year. More information about how to accumulate points can be found here.
Any spots on the trip that are not filled by members with points will be given to EJTU chapter members that have not accumulated points on a first come / first serve basis.
After submitting your request to attend this trip, the Coordinator will be in contact with you to let you know whether you have a spot on the trip or not. If you do have a spot on the trip the Coordinator will let you know where to send the $50.00 fee. Those selected to attend the trip must mail the $50.00 fee to the trip coordinator and no refund will be given due to inclement weather (cold, rain snow etc).
