A few of us are meeting up – more info to follow so please get in touch if interested
Thank you to those that ordered clothing with the CMC logo on, due to a fault with the embroidery machine the company providing cannot give me a solid date as to when they will be ready
As soon as I know anything I will be sure to let you know,
With Christmas excesses weighing me down, I could do with a trip to a wall at some point in the next few days (Ingleton is not scheduled until next Wednesday) Please send an email on email@example.com as my phone has died.
(From Brenda) …Cordon bleu cookery in a mountain hut… how was it possible …Sylvia and Shirley you worked miracles! Even the weather behaved. Glorious sunshine on Friday, followed by wild winds, torrential rain and sleet overnight. Martin mastered the coal burner giving a roasty toasty warm welcome for 15 of us who’d all arrived by the evening. On Saturday, Flo’s alternative to Great Gable summit suited the weather perfectly – a delightful walk to Keswick via Grange followed by tea/cake and a taxi home. More winds and heavy rainfall came in mid-afternoon catching a few out….soon forgotten when mulled wine and mince pies were served. With meal preps underway, fairy lights (and Rudolph) festively decorating the hut, the table was set for the communal banquet. Silly Santa songs pursued – who would have believed you’d get a group of hardy mountaineers singing along at the top of their voices!…childish games followed on – Happy Valley will never seem the same (Umm…!), and then an amusing raffle (thankfully only for 15)…giggle, giggle, hiccup … a jolly time was had by all
On Sunday groups took differing routes over Glaramara on Sunday in very challenging icy conditions. Thanks to Dave for the pies and dessert, to Chris and Paul for the games, and to everyone for embracing the festive spirit (and my songsheet)! It was a wonderful weekend. Merry Christmas everyone.
Meeting at Austwick 9.45am, 8 miles approx taking… in the delights of Feizor, Stackhouse, Little Stainforth and Wharfe with a café stop at Knight Stainforth. Please let Fiona know of your interest.
