Winter Skills course - sign up now!

  posted by Sam Harrison on 2013-11-18

Sign-ups for the Winter Skills course open on Monday. It's slightly earlier than usual so we can gauge how many people are going to be on the course. The trip is happening at the end of week 9, from 6 to 8 December, and will most likely be to Aviemore. The course will cost a bargain £45, which will include transport, accommodation and transport. This really is a bargain, if you were to go on an equivalent course at Glenmore Lodge, it would cost you over £200!

It will be run by Mountain Circles, the guys who ran Winter Skills course last year and our Avalanche Awareness Course the year before. It is ideal for anyone who hasn't done much (or any) walking in winter before, and is a great opportunity to learn how to use crampons and ice axes properly and safely. There is a bit more information on what the course will entail on their website here.

There will be a normal trip running alongside the course, which will cost £30. Sign ups for this open when they normally would, the Monday after.

Christmas is quickly creeping up on us, and owing to that and the face that our Christmas Meal this year is at the end of November, signs ups are now open at foyer!

The meal will be taking place at The Borough on Friday 29th November at 7pm, and will cost £20 for three courses. Come down to foyer now to put down your choices. There is a menu at foyer, or you can have a look online here.

Upcoming socials

Sorry for the lack of updates on the website recently - things have been rather hectic here at the club! We've had a couple of fantastic (and busy) trips in the past few weeks, despite the weather doing its best to put us off. Check back soon for trip reports and photos. In the mean time, here's a bit of info about two exciting socials we've got going on in the next few weeks.

Firstly, this Wednesday (i.e. tomorrow), we have a Hallowe'en Bar Crawl. It's fancy dress time, with games and prizes! Do not expect any spooky surprises. We would never do anything to scare you... The plan is yet to be fully confirmed, however there will be a bar crawl, there will be entertaining things to do, and, of course, there will be incredible company. Keep an eye out on the Facebook event for more details.

On Tuesday 12 November, our local Mountain Rescue Team, Bowland Penine, will be coming on to campus to run an evening of activities for club members. There will be a talk from the team and many interactive activities involving the team JEEP and a rescue dog named Ted. The event will run from 7pm in Bowland North SR 23.

Also look out for more details about our ceilidh on Friday 15 November, and Ultimate Night on Thursday 21 November. As always, details can be found on our calendar.

Don't ask...
