Dovedale, Snowdonia, Film Night & the Otley Run!

Hello lovely hikers! 

To everyone that went to the Lakes weekend I hear you had a fantastic time and I am very jealous of you! Thanks to all the new members especially for the trip its great seeing people get so involved with the club when we’ve not even been at uni a month yet! For anyone that didn’t get a place or couldn’t make this trip we have two other weekend trips coming up between now and Christmas so there’s plenty of time yet  See below for details!
We also want to say a huge thank you to everyone that came to the Mountain Rescue talk on Thursday. The money raised will go to Mountain Rescue and help them to continue the brilliant work they do.

Email at a glance!

Two things to sign up for this week – Sunday hike to the Peak District (26th October) and the weekend trip to Snowdonia (30th October – 2nd November), Wednesday’s film night and (of course) the pub, LUUHC Cowboys and Indians Otley Run and lastly some info about club discounts!

Sunday hike to Dovestones

The location of this week’s Sunday hike has changed! We will be doing a train hike to Dovestones in the Peak District. Sign up for this trip will be 1.30pm this Wednesday in room 3 of the Union. We will give you all the details at sign up.

Weekend trip to Snowdonia

The much anticipated trip out of the country is upon us! Between 30th October – 2nd November we will be staying in Rhyd Ddu, which is a small village based at the bottom on Mount Snowdon in Wales. From this position we will have the freedom to go all over the northern half of Snowdonia National Park in areas such as the Carneddau, Glyderau, Snowdon, Moel Siabod, Cnicht and the Nantle Ridge. There will be two groups leaving on different days for this trip. One group will leave on Thursday and will have 3 days hiking, this will cost £45. The other group (those of us unlucky enough to have uni on a Friday) will leave on Friday evening and meet the rest of the group there. This will cost £40. Please can you let us know which day you want to leave when you sign up. Sign up will be 1.30pm this Wednesday in room 3 of the Union. This trip is set to be fantastic and as such places will be in high demand so in order to avoid disappointment please arrive before then to give yourself a better chance of being towards the front of the queue!

Film night and pub

This Wednesday we are hosting a film night so bring your flatmates and friends for a chilled night of movies! Feel free to bring your own popcorn! It will be held in Baines Wing SR 1.15 at 7pm. Afterwards we will be heading as usual to the Library pub! Anyone is welcome to this, don’t hesitate to come along.

Otley Run

On the 29th October LUUHC takes on the famous Otley Run! If it’s your first year in Leeds and you haven’t done one yet then shame on you! This is your perfect opportunity our theme is Cowboys and Indians so plenty of time to put together a costume of some description!
