Arizona Trailblazers,
I hope you are all doing well and finding ways to enjoy the great outdoors while we continue in this state of the pandemic. The Executive Committee met on March 9 and agreed to keep the current guidelines in place with a couple of clarifications.
1.  Hikes are limited to groups of 20 people or less; however, there are ways to set up hikes where more hikers can be accommodated. We encourage hike leaders to be creative and use a co-leader, when possible, such as a loop hike where two groups are going in different directions.
2. Carpooling is voluntary. The club no longer recognizes carpool drivers. The driver has the right to require everyone to wear face masks.
3. Set up a rendezvous point where everyone can meet and caravan to the trailhead, especially when trailheads are not easy to find or there are long distances on forest roads to travel.
4. Continue practicing physical distancing. We encourage everyone to wear a mask when we meet at the trailhead and take group pictures.
5. If you are not feeling well, stay home.
During these times where we have limits on the number of participants, please be considerate of your commitment to joining a hike. Late cancellations or no shows take away spots from others. You should notify the hike leader at least 48 hours in advance if you are not able to make the hike. We understand things happen at the last minute or someone is not feeling well. In these cases, you should still contact the leader that morning to advise that you will not be there.
