NOTE: Field trips and other club activities will sometimes require MMS Membership in order to fulfill legal requirements to remote or possibly dangerous locations. The Trip Chairperson will post those requirements and almost all field trips will require the participants to bring the proper equipment and training certification in order to participate.
