As a drive captain, you choose the date and the venue. A PCC committee member will be assigned to you to provide assistance and support you through the drive captain process. (Members of the PCC Committee are Bob Strolin, Chairperson; Jeff Attwood; Pam Bayse; and Debbie Blum).
All day trips should be within a 2 hour ride one way.
Call the venue to determine cost and if they accommodate groups. (Always ask for a group rate)
Present your idea for the ride to one of the PCC team members: Bob, Jeff, Pam, or Debbie.
Once the idea is discussed with the PCC, submit the information (date, place, cost, etc.) to Ken Bornstein so he can post it on our website and email members to inform them of the ride and to encourage them to sign up.
Prepare directions to the destination to hand out to members on the day of the drive. It is extremely helpful for the directions to include approximate mileage between each turn. It is strongly suggested that the drive captain drive the route prior to the date of the event to ensure minimal disruptions in the drive (i.e. construction, road closures, parking issues)
Be sure to include your phone number on the directions this is important for all participants to have if they get lost or need to contact you for any reason during the ride. Of course, keep your phone close at hand.
On the day of the ride, the drive captain should have a printed copy of the roster for attendance purposes. Please notify Ken Bornstein or Aura Strolin if a member does not show up for the ride.
Handout directions to all members as they arrive so they can begin to become familiar with the directions. Review them at the drivers meeting prior to departure. Discuss rules of the road and safety.
