  • Acknowledge Rucksack Club support in any reports about the trip
  • Write an article for the RC Journal and allow any accompanying photos to be used on the Club Website and in other Club literature
  • Provide a brief summary of their expedition upon its completion
  • Agree that if the expedition is cancelled that the grant will be returned to the Club in full
