Do you know the Bus Rules?
Yes, we do have a few travel rules for the trip!
The bus trip down to the resort is often the first chance for our new members to
get to know their fellow FSCers and we DO want them to be enthusiastic about signing up for more trips. In order to please most of the people most of the time, please observe the following rules:
LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR
• Your first impression may be our last. Respect other people on the bus.
TIME, and the bus, WAITS FOR NO MAN
• The Trip Captain is under no obligation to delay the bus departure for late-comers and probably won’t.
• Allow for traffic and time to find a legitimate parking place and to load equipment, i.e. arrive at least 20 minutes before departure.
• Be prompt getting back to the bus after breaks
(remember what the bus looks like and where it’s parked).
• It is customary for you to buy a round of drinks for the entire bus
if you are late and the bus has waited for you.
TIDINESS IS NEXT TO GODLINESS
• Be sure to throw all rubbish into the bags provided and use rest-stop breaks to offload rubbish.
• Do not be sick on the bus! If you are, you are liable for a € 50 fine
(payable to the driver) and responsible for cleaning it up! Drink judiciously!
• The bus toilets only have a limited capacity, and generally the contents cannot be disposed of in other countries. Please use the rest stops to best advantage so that the toilets don’t fill up and have to be locked. (If the holding tank freezes up, the toilet will also be closed for use.) If you do use the bus toilet, guys are also expected to sit – let’s keep the toilet clean!
COVET NOT THY NEIGHBOUR’S SEAT
• There are no set seat assignments. The earlier you arrive, the better your
choice of seats. The seat you select is yours until the bus returns to Frankfurt (unless you negotiate a swap with someone else).
• Since April 2004 it is compulsory to wear your seat belt when seated in a moving bus. No passenger may stand forward of the front seats. Passengers should also remain seated throughout the journey where possible. These rules are enforced at the discretion of the bus driver.
THOU SHALT NOT LEAN SKIS/SNOWBOARDS AGAINST or
WEAR SKI BOOTS ON THE BUS
• Observe strictly, since German tour buses tend to cost as much as a small house and you don’t want to pay for a new paint job or carpet.
• Anywhere on the bus, at any time. Unless you are on fire.
ENTERTAINMENT FOR ALL
• DVDs (PAL Region 2 standard) are shown at the TC’s discretion.
If you bring your own, remember that FSCers cover a wide range of ages
and tastes, so choose appropriately.
RESPECT AND OBEY YOUR TC
• Please cooperate! Your TCs are volunteers and are doing their best
for our members.
• The Trip Captain is in charge, is the only person who liaises with
the Driver and their decisions are LAW throughout the trip.
• Help load and unload skis and bags from the bus: at departure,
at the hotel and upon return to Frankfurt.
• If the bus stops for any reason, please stay on the bus until directed by the TC.
THEY WHO DRINK AND DRIVE TODAY WILL NOT SKI ANOTHER DAY
• On the way home, if you drink, don’t drive. If you drive, don’t drink.
We want you around to enjoy more FSC ski trips with us.
• Most of our drivers are swell guys (and gals!) who usually endure FSC festivities with good humour and a smile. They almost always do their best for us,
and it is customary to give a small gratuity at the end of the trip to show
