President’s Message – Butts in the Seats

As we enter the last month of the season, it appears that we are finally getting consistent winter weather!!!! Which means that we should be able to run as many trips as we can so long as we have sufficient numbers of members on the bus – aka Butts in the Seats! 

This season has been challenging with less than ideal weather and a continuing concern among some members to take the bus. After two years of restrictions, we have tried not to cancel any day trips despite having lower than breakeven numbers for many of the day trips.The club has always been willing to run some buses at a slight deficit based on small surpluses on other trips. However, this year we have not had has many surplus trips as in the past, which means for the remaining trips we need to be as close as we can to breakeven. 

Given the consistent conditions, please register early for trips to ensure we are able to run as many of the scheduled trips as possible. If conditions and interest continue, we will look at adding additional trips later in the month.

Have a fantastic time on the remaining trips of this season.
