The group has rules for when we are on the page but this is for when we are on the trail. 99% of the time we do really well how we carry ourselves. But 1% of bad conduct can ruin a whole trip or someone else's. If someone abuses these requests they will be spoken to and reminded. If it becomes a habit then they will not be invited back out.
