Now that October is here our club social season is to commence. Our committee is setting up programmes for walking , climbing , socials and hut meets.
As a taster for socials here are some to consider:
Talk on climbing Mount Elbrus
Cycle maintenance evening – in the spring when the bike is dusted off!
Yes the annual photographic competition – get those photos ready for John Ward
GPS night time navigation experience
The John Brayshaw music Quiz
There are plans in the pipeline but any suggestions or volunteer speakers are very welcome.
Our club logo is now being prepared for applying to a T shirt sample. The logo can be placed on many items from this firm I have sourced and bulk ordering is not required. I hope to launch this before Christmas should this help with present ideas.
For the future in 2018, this is the 40th Anniversary year of our club, yes we go back as far as 1978! Bigger events are being researched:
An Alpine trip in July – Jon Lury is exploring our choices for this
I am planning a short cycle trip around Amsterdam in the spring taking the overnight ferry as a foot passenger taking the bike. Anyone interested do get in touch.
A club barbecue late spring the venue is fabulous
AND finally the 40th anniversary Celidh in October 2018
Finally one last request. Does anyone know the whereabouts of the club Journal. It is always good to see what outdoor gear we were wearing and climbing stuff used all those years ago.
looking forward to seeing you all through into winter
