Mountaineers Program Center 9am-3pm. Group may come all at once, or cohorts may end up coming in shifts, depending on COVID-19 guidance in place at the time.

If COVID-19 guidance allows, the group will come all at once like usual. If guidance requires smaller group sizes, pods will come in 2 hour shifts throughout the day. In this case, the pod schedule would be published within 2 weeks of the skills workshop, along with the trip sheet. 

Other options are to have different pods use different parts of the building - one pod in Goodman C, one pod in the basement, and one pod outside, etc. 

This workshop is primarily for the new members to get up to speed. If time/circumstances allow, we can continue practicing skills from the fall with the current/returning members.
