More opportunity for outreach and tracts handed out”; “Map reading/Compass – GPS pertaining to mountain hikes” ; “P.T. should be longer”; “Set aside two or three days for Range”; “Some DVDs did not work. Maybe get some GCC participants to also present a short missions-related talk”; “Presentations could be done by people from diverse cultural backgrounds”; “Create more PowerPoints for every lecture presented”; “A day or two for touring”; “Would be better if you let the people get a clearer picture of the practicals and hikes so that they can come prepared”; “All drivers need to be briefed on routes.
