Frequently asked Questions
How do I actually start walking with the Bush Club Inc?
Having paid the Prospective Membership fee, completed the paperwork and mailed the
form and cheque to the Membership Secretary, select a qualifying walk
(marked with an ‘M’), contact the walk leader at least
3 days before the walk and explain that you are a prospective member
and would like to come on their walk.
The leader may ask a number of questions regarding your physical capacity to do the
walk. These are not intended to be personally intrusive but are designed
to ensure that you enjoy and complete the walk in safety. Please advise
the leader about any medication you are taking which might be relevant.
You also need to re-read the general instructions on page one of the Walks Schedule
regarding equipment, safety and water. Your personal safety is very important.
Can I do walks as a Prospective Member that are not marked
with the ‘M’ symbol?
Yes. You can do any walk on the program (subject to the conditions above). Walks
without the ‘M’ symbol do not speed your qualification
process but they will increase your walking capacity and enjoyment.
Remember to contact the leader in all cases and let him/her know you
are a Prospective member.
When I have done my 3 qualifying walks do I have to wait
until 30th June before I sign up as a Full Member?
No. As soon as you have completed your 3rd qualifying walk you can apply for Full
Membership. A form is included with the information pack you receive
as a prospective member.
As a Prospective Member can I participate in the Bush Club email Short
Notice Walks Program?
Yes. The same conditions apply. Make sure you contact the leader.
As a Prospective Member can I invite a visitor to come on a walk?
No. Visitors may only be invited by full members who must be present on the walk
and subject to the leader giving approval.
What should I do if I am injured on a walk?
The most important
thing to do is notify the leader on the day. Click
