It's our annual dinner coming up on Saturday 18th November. We're going to meet at the Belmont Hotel at 7pm for drinks before sitting down for dinner at 7:30pm. You can wear what you like of course but why not take the opportunity to get dressed up; you'll be in good company as some members are wearing their DJ's and sparkly dresses.
The BMC are once again hosting a series of Winter Skills lectures. These are great for those thinking about getting into winter walking and climbing in the mountains. Tickets are normally £9, BMC members can get them for £7 but we can also get a group discount with tickets at only £4.75 if we book 10 or more.
The nearest lecture venue is in Birmingham on Monday 27th November. If you are keen to attend let me know by this Friday and if there is more than 10 people I'll make a group booking and collect the money from you.
Usually we are fully booked for our annual Mountain Biking meet but I've just check on our website to see who is coming and we still have lots of spaces. Where are all the Mountain Bikers?
If you're wanting to join us then please do book your place now as I need to know who is coming by the end of Wednesday at the latest. The weather forecast looks pretty good and some great trails are waiting for us to ride. You don't need to be an experienced rider to join us, in fact you can join us even if you just fancy a weekend in the Lake District for walking/scrambling/etc.
We've got a nice bunkhouse with hot showers and a log fire to warm yourself when you return, plus a group dinner on the Saturday night - see all the details on the website.
Look forward to see all the places taken by Wednesday!
