What an incredible turnout tonight in SGM 101! We filled every seat in the house and the side aisles were pretty full too. As everyone settled in, we introduced the guides – SC Outfitters now has over 40 guides, double what we’ve ever had in the past. With so many guides we can now lead twice as many trips as in the past, meaning there should be fewer people on the waiting lists, meaning all of our members can go on trips.
We also showed everyone where they can sign up for membership and where they can view our current trips… along with every trip we’ve run in the past! We also announced a smorgasbord of new benefits for members, including an SC Outfitters t-shirt on your first overnight trip of the year! As always, gear rentals are included in the price of the trips, and we’re also working on offering our trips at lower cost so they are more accessible to students. And lastly, we will no longer be holding trip meetings! Instead we will announce our trips and offer sign-ups online, and instead we will keep the monthly meetings for members fun and entertaining, so our community has more opportunities to get to know one another! Check out our first membership event, BBQ on McCarthy Quad, on September 25!
Our last part of the night was breaking out into small groups to met the guides on a more personal level and talk about SC Outfitters and our trips this semester. Check out our FAQ for some of the questions that were asked, and if you have any more, simply email help-desk at scoutfitters.org and we’ll help you out!
