There is a lot to tell you about this week, so if your sitting
comfortably I'll begin..
First up, This Tuesday (the 11th) is the annual equipment trip,
postponed from last week. This is your chance to get kited out for
the year ahead at a discount. Even if you don't need any kit pop
along a bit later as we will be heading for wind street afterwards.
You can meet us at 5pm in JC's, 6pm at the quadrant bus station, in
Out and About between 6 and 7pm and in Lloyds Bar (Formally the Bank
Statement) from about 7:15pm
This Sunday sees the first C grade walk of term, Pen-Y-Fan a walk
that takes in several peaks including the highest is South Wales.
Stunning views over a spectacular landscape make this walk one of my
favourites this year, and with one of the UK's finest pubs, The Star
Inn, providing refreshments you could not as for a better day. Sign
up for this walk as useual in JC's between 12:30 and 13:30 on
Wednesday and Friday.
This week we will be getting serious about kit, anyone that turns up
in trainers or jeans will be turned away. You have been warned!
You can checkout photos from last years walk here - http://
The first weekend away of the year, to the Peak District is fast
approaching. The trip will leave campus on the Friday (21st) evening
and return on Sunday evening(the 23rd). We manage to squeeze two
walks into one weekend, including the unmissable Kinder Scout!
The trip will cost £25 including transport and accommodation, but you
will need to bring a sleeping bag and food for the weekend. More
details to follow. Its strictly first come first served, so be prompt!
You can sign up for the Peaks weekend away on Tuesday the 18th in
JC's at 6pm.
After the Peak District sign up, we'll be heading down to mumbles for
the Round the World Pub Crawl, our unique take on the mumbles mile.
For one night, each pub becomes a country, and at each we'll sample a
drink from that country! So, Guinness for Ireland, Vodka for Russia,
and, if your stomach can stand it, a Mexican Tequila to round off the
evening! Up for the challenge? Then make your way down to the White
Rose for 7.30pm on Tuesday October 18th. or meander down there with
us after the sign up!
And finally its nearly time for the club to elect two first year
reps, If its your first year in the club, and you fancy getting more
involved, or finding out how the club is run this is your chance! As
a first year rep all you have to do is turn up to our weekly
meetings, you can do more but there is no pressure! You don't even
have to be a fresher to be a first year rep, just in your first year
with the club.
If you want to know more about being a first year rep email me, ask
at signup or on a walk.
As always if you have any questions or comments just email us, or ask!
Hope to see you all soon!
Chris Jones, Hiking Club Chairman
