Dear Hikers,

Firstly, apologies for sending yet another email for you to read. There
has been more than usual this week as it's the start of term and we're
keen you are all well informed on what's going on. Normally there is one
walk email a week and one social email a week. However, if I could ask for
some feedback on emails, that would be gratefully received. Do you like
the two emails a week? Or would you prefer further reminder emails about
upcoming events?
Also I'm sending out this email that includes all you need to know for
this weekend and upcoming events because we've had issues with bouncing
emails, which is corrected now.

For those who haven't been receiving emails:

1) SATURDAY 4th October - Amroth to Tenby B.1. There are still places on
this walk. Come along to JC's tomorrow between 12.30-1.30 to sign up.
Alternatively you can email me your name and AU number.
Although the walk is on a Saturday, the pick up times are the same:

9.00 Uplands
9.05 Village

In addition to James' email - NOTE TO ALL: It is Hiking club tradition to
visit Uplands Diner for breakfast before longer coach journey's. This
Saturday meet at Uplands Diner at 8.00-8.15. You will need the time to
order/be served/eat before the coach pick up at 9.00. Email me for

FRESHERS BALL - for those hikers wanting to hike and party we will aim to
be back on campus at roughly 6.30. I will discuss this with you all on the
day and if it affects enough people we can always leave the pub earlier if

2) SUNDAY 12th October - Offa's Dyke C.3. Our first long and hillier hike
