Show "Late Cancellation" as a Participant Result
Show "Late Cancellation" as a status on the Participant Result, if participant cancels after registration is closed. This would be an additional option to Cancelled and No Show, which already exist. No changes to existing, automated emails.
We have a number of mechanisms in place to help people understand the impact of cancellations and no- shows. This includes our automated emails and participation notes for people on trips.
We are concerned that this status will lead to leaders blacklisting participants from trips and think that instead the focus needs to be on better new member orientation about our activities.

Late cancellations are still an epidemic in the Club. Anything that would help would be much appreciated! They create extra work for Volunteer trip leaders and also result in fewer people going on trips because spots on trips go unfilled even if there is a waitlist,
