This is aimed at those going on the Dolomites trip, who are new to Alpine climbing or doing Via Ferattas. Anyway I've attached a file with various bits of advice. Feel free to ignore if you're not going on the trip or know it all! No claims to knowing it all are made.
Just a reminder about a couple of meets we have spaces on.
The meet in the Lake District at the Barrow Hut near Coniston on the weekend of 15th/16th September. We are about 50% full on this. Since we've got reciprocal rights, it's a cheap weekend at £10 a head. Interested go link :
We also have spaces available on the MTB meet in the Yorkshire Dales. I know people are interested in booking on this meet but haven't done so yet. It's on the weekend of 5th-7th Oct. Again we are about 50% full, so if you fancy coming go to this link:
Hope to see you on both meets!
Hello all! Just a reminder that it's the Summer Dinner this coming Saturday at Wetton in the Peak.
If you are planning on coming, please book and pay for your tickets on the website today as we will be confirming numbers and menu choices tonight.
See you there!
Just a quick update on a few BMC matters. Firstly a big thanks to all those who took the time to vote for this years BMC AGM. We had a record level of voting participation, mainly thanks to the new online voting system. Checkout a summary of the AGM results over on the BMC website.
Secondly the BMC is again running the its 'How to support novice club members' weekend at Plas-y-brenin on the 8th/9th September. This course is only open to BMC club members and thanks to the support of the BMC it only costs £85 for the weekend which is an absolute bargain as it covers all the instruction, accommodation at Plas-y-brenin, all the group kit and a three-course meal on the Saturday evening. If you are interested in supporting novice club members take a look at the details and course requirements on the BMC website.
The following items have been found at the hut:
- Grey Rohan Jacket,
- Pink Overtrousers,
- Merino Buff,
- Pair of Black Socks and
- Blue LED Torch
If any/all of these items are yours, then contact Paul Parker to arrange return.
Since both myself and Brian won't be able to make the Peak this Thursday we're cancelling.
