  posted by Sam Harrison on 2013-01-29


The Greaves Park Hotel - venue for this year's Annual Dinner.
Sign-ups are now open for our Annual Dinner, this year to the Greaves Park Hotel. The event is taking place on Friday 15 February at 7pm, and costs an amazing £8 for one course, £10 for two or £12 for three!

As the name implies, we hold our Annual Dinner once a year to welcome in the new Exec and say goodbye to the old. Everyone is welcome and it's always a fun evening.

And on that note, nominations for our elections are now open at foyer. If you fancy being on the exec next year, then come on down to put your name down. More details about the different positions is available here.

This Thursday 24 January at 7.30pm in Frankland Colloquium Room we will be holding a "Re-Intro Talk" to give new and prospective members an idea of how things work in the club. Topics covered will include:

  • What gear to bring on hikes
  • What trips we're running this term
  • How to sign up for trips
  • Some of the fantastic socials we go on
  • What kind of hikes you can expect
  • What gear the club has that you can borrow
  • How to get involved and become a leader or driver
There will also be plenty of opportunity to ask questions if we don't answer them all for you! You will also be able to sign up for our trip to Blencathra at the end of week 2, and our Glencoe/Tyndrum weekend trip at the end of week 3.

Hope to see you all there!

Paddy Cave from Mountain Circles is coming to Lancaster to give a follow-up talk to the Winter Skills course last term, and anyone is welcome to come along (not just those on the course). The talk will be on Wednesday 30 January at 7:30pm in Frankland Colloqium Room.

The main topic of the evening will be avalanche awareness, but Paddy will also talk a bit about winter climbing and Himalayan climbing. It should be an interesting evening and we encourage you all to come along!
