I’ve just added lots of updates to the events page including a full programme of weekend trips for 2018 and even a sneak preview of some 2019 bookings – also more details of upcoming day walks. Thanks to Michael and Linda for their sterling work in getting this organised.
A couple of changes to the events schedule: change of start venue for Sunday’s (4 June) day walk another BMC-led day walk is on offer on 10 June in the Chilterns we’ve had to cancel Ennerdale in July, more news to follow. Sorry about the short notice owing to the administrator’s absence.
You may have spotted that we are planning to mark the club’s 25th anniversary on our trip to North Wales on 29 September to 1 October. More news later. The committee would welcome suggestions for doing something more local to Kingston too.
To book a place on a weekend meet email your request to the Meet Secretary by Friday at least 2 weeks before the weekend. Please say whether you wish to be part of the car pool, are willing to drive and approximate preferred travelling times. A list of attendees and car pool arrangements will be sent out 1 week before the meet, leaving the final week for remaining preparations.

At the latest AGM it was decided that members should carry ICE (In Case of Emergency) details in the top pocket of their rucksacks when on weekend meets so in case an accident happens, medical details, contact numbers etc can be easily obtained. In combination with this it is also worth checking out this video for information on emergency use of a mobile phone.
