Hello all,

Hope you're all settling (back) into life at university! Just a quick  
e-mail to let you know what's happening this week.
But first... as anyone who was there last Sunday will tell you, we  
were blessed with good weather for the first walk of term. It was  
great to see so many new faces alongside the regulars. Photos can be  
found here - http://www.uwshiking.org.uk/gallery/rhossili-to-port- 
eynon05 (if you have any photos from any of the walks you can e-mail  
them to us, or bring them along on CD to a signup)

Onto this week...
The Equipment Trip originally planed for this Tuesday (the 4th), has  
been moved to next Tuesday (the 11th) due to staffing problems at the  
We are offering a social in JC's this Tuesday instead. So come meet  
us in the quiet side of JC's from 6pm for a few drinks!

This Sundays walk takes us to Pembrokeshire and the Preseli Hills, A  
bare, haunting upland of gently sweeping hills scattered with remains  
of stone circles, burial chambers and standing stones. It was from  
these hills that around 2000 - 1500 BC huge "blue stones" were  
somehow transported 200 miles (320 Km) away to Sonehenge, where they  
were used to form the inner circle. This is a B grade walk (for more  
on walk grades see our web site - http://www.uwshiking.org.uk) so  
walking boots and waterproofs are essential!
You can sign up between 12:30 and 13:30 on Wednesday or Friday in JC's

Thinks you need to bring on walks..
* Walking Boots (To provide ankle support, preferably waterproof)
* Waterproof (Both tops and bottoms, the club has a very limited  
supply you can borrow)
* Sensible Trousers (Jeans are not acceptable as they become heavy  
and hard to walk in when when wet.)
* Food and drink (Enough food for your lunch, and enough water to  
last you the day)
* Money (For the pub!)
If you don't have boots or a waterproof yet , and cant make our  
Equipment Trip you can find a list of local shops as well as the  
student discount offered on our web site - http:// 

Hope to see you all soon!

Chris :)
