Registered MAC students will be prompted by volunteer or staff leaders to make a plan and publish a trip sheet about 1 month before the trip, to be approved by the MAC manager or volunteer lead by two weeks before the trip.  

Trip sheet should include: meeting time and place (coordinates are helpful, here), trailhead parking pass details, carpool sign up link, trail description/notes (one can link to WTA trail description and reports), and a link to current weather report for the trailhead/area.
