Explorers

Mission and Goals

The Explorers provide all Riverside Country Club members an opportunity to join other members in various social, recreational, educational and cultural activities.  These activities are suggested, researched, coordinated, and run by Riverside Country Club members.  All members of Riverside Country Club are members of the Explorers.

The group meets monthly to review recent events, check on progress of activities in the queue, and discuss potential new activities.

Any Riverside Country Club member may suggest an Explorer event.  The normal process is to attend the monthly meeting and present the idea.  If it is approved by the members in attendance, a date is selected and arrangements, including writing the announcement, taking reservations, coordinating with the event venue, etc. are made by the person making the suggestion.

The key to the success of the Explorers is a core of members who are willing to make suggestions, take initiative, and follow up.  The more people involved, the better.  More people means a wider variety of ideas and activities along with more leaders for each specific outing or event.
