Cabin Use Policy
PATC has changed the policy governing the use of cabins for worktrips. The revised policy states, in part:
Trail work trips of a public nature (that is, advertised through some PATC publication)—reservations may be made at any time.Cabin reservations for this purpose are generally limited to six times a year per overseer/work trip leader, except by permission of the Supervisor of Trails. Trail work trips of a private nature (that is, not advertised in some PATC publication) must have the approval of the Supervisor of Trails or his or her designated representative (such as a district manager) before the reservation is made. Reservations made more than five weeks in advance are tentative pending possible priority reservations for cabin trips. At the discretion of the Chairman, Cabins Reservations, “private” trail work trip reservations may be made only tentatively, pending confirmation of the need for the trip by the Supervisor of Trails, or his or her designee.
No one can exclusively reserve a Maintenance Hut; however, space is limited (hence the oversight involved). In fact, we should use the Ivy Creek Maintenance Hut more often.
