LAKE DISTRICT TWO DAYS MEET – ESKDALE
September 10 - September 12
A two day trip to the Lakes for walking and/or climbing. Members will need to book their own accommodation if staying for both days and Dick as meet coordinator is booked to stay on the National Trust Campsite in Eskdale (https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/holidays/eskdale-campsite-lake-district).
Eskdale is an area we do not get to on Hut Meets so it is a good location for a camping meet.
The wide selection of walks and climbs in the rea is obvious to all.
If you are interested please contact Dick.
We have two similar statements on this for Walking and for Climbing Meets. The Walking meets one is below. Obviously these will be relevant to the activities on this meet. Additionally members booking accommodation will be dealing with Covid risks on an individual basis. Please remember that if unwary the highest risk is often when not walking/climbing but before and after such including on campsites and in hospitality venues.
In order to attend the meet, participants should consider that they are comfortable with adhering to the following:
• I am aware that the current COVID-19 pandemic brings a number of known risks and a number of unknown risks. I have chosen to partake in a CMC meet in this knowledge.
• I have not had a positive test for COVID-19 in the last ten days prior to the meet.
• I have not been told to self-isolate in the last 10 days due to COVID-19.
• If I have COVID-19 symptoms at the time of the meet, then I will inform the meet coordinator and immediately go home.
• If I have COVID-19 symptoms in the 10 days following the meet, then I will inform the meet coordinator and NHS test and trace.
By confirming attendance participants commit to the following ways to reduce risk:
• I understand that during the meet I should maintain a social distance wherever possible.
• I will bring my own hand sanitiser and/or anti-bacterial wipes for personal use and use them regularly.
• I will bring my own personal supplies such as first aid kit, food, and drink.
• I will stay within my competence level for the activity being undertaken during this meet to reduce risk of an incident and need to call on emergency services.
• If I need to assist with first aid of another participant, I will use best PPE available. I will minimise close contact as far as practically possible while arranging for emergency service assistance if needed. I acknowledge that the CMC recommends all participants should have a mask and gloves in their first aid kit.
• As far as possible I will avoid sharing equipment and will quarantine any items that have been shared during the meet for 72 hours before using it again.
Walking meets typically involve all participants gathering together at start and end of a walk. The above points are relevant to the whole meet but you should be particularly careful at the start, end and at any intermediate stops to avoid unnecessary close contacts.
