OOPS Trip Organizers and Instructors

Trip Organizers and Instructors are critical to the success of this code!

If you want to become a Trip Organizer, please inform a Board member or the TOHelp@oopskayak.org mailing list to let us know of your interest.  Depending on your previous experience, after 1-4 classes the Board will vote to make you a provisional organizer.  You will then be asked to lead at least 3 mentored paddles with existing OOPS organizers (different people each time, ideally) to build your skills on actual trips.  Once you are comfortable leading groups, the Board will vote to make you a full organizer.
