An update about your online tramp booking system
The club’s online tramp registration system is popular! It worked from day 1, and we had a surprising amount of positive feedback and good ideas for developing it. We’re improving it as we go along – including some changes that will provide you with background to your tramp, and up-to-date information about transport arrangements and weather.
This booking system allows you to reserve your place on any trip without needing to make a phone call, send a txt message or do paperwork at club meetings.
To access it, you must have a Google account, and the Google Sheets app on your device.
Getting a Google account is easy and free – and you don’t need to have a Gmail email address. Just click here to set up yours.
Then go to the Tramp List (Meetings and Events), pick your tramp, key in your name, and we take care of the rest!
- We’ve added a new feature to the booking system. You can get DoC information about a destination hut, such as its history and facilities (and, sometimes, charges) by hovering your cursor on the hut name if it’s highlighted on the booking sheet – that link will usually show in light blue and is underlined.
