1. How to sign up for a trip.

Follow these steps:

  • Contact the trip leader
    You can call, email or talk to a trip leader at a general meeting to find out if spots are still available. If not, they can add you to the wait list.
  • Sign up for membership
    You must be a member of our club to go on one of our Western, European or Canadian trips. We can take payments for membership ($25) at a meeting, through the mail, or you can pay by credit card. See the Membership page for more details.
  • Complete a trip application
    You can download one here, print it and fill it out.
  • Submit payment along with your completed application
    We accept checks or cash for all payments due up to the date you sign up. This can be submitted to the trip leader at a meeting or mailed into our PO Box.
    Mailing Address: PO Box 5, Brookfield, Illinois 60513. If you are mailing in payments please read the “Mailing in a Payment” tab. This will help ensure your payments are directed and credited to the trips, event or membership which you intend it for.

4. Write which trip the payment is for on the check memo line.
5. Please ensure the check is signed (numerous checks are received each year without signatures.)
6. If the payment is for multiple people, please include a note listing who the payment is for to ensure the trip leader can properly credit each person on their payment roster.
7. If this is a trip or membership signup, include the appropriate completed, and signed, application form with your payment.
