HIKING WEEKLY NEWS 30th November 2015

Hey Hikers,

Well the Christmas ball… what can I say, I’m still buzzing about it! What a fantastic evening, thanks to all who organised the meal, the awards and the after party, especially Dave and Jordan! Due to the horrific weather we unfortunately had to cancel the Buckden hike yesterday, but hopefully Mother Nature will let us enjoy our last Sunday hike of the semester.

If you have ordered a club buff and haven’t paid yet, now is the time to log onto the union website, go onto the club page and select the shop tab. Buffs are in the shop section for the fantastic price of £8.50.

***This week at LUUHC...***

***Winter Briefing and International Trip talk*** Wednesday 2nd December, 7pm. Maurice Keyworth Lecture

If you are interested in coming on the winter trips to the Cairngorms and Fort William in February, then this is a mandatory talk on the safety aspects of the trip, information about what to bring and more general info. Please note that to go on a winter trip, you need to have been on a weekend trip this semester so we know first-hand whether you would be capable of going out on the hill in winter conditions or not. There will be another winter briefing talk next Wednesday on the 9th of December as well for those who are unable to make it this week.

Roy will also give everyone an insight into the international trip this year including dates, the location and an idea of what we will be doing……soooo all very exciting!

***Wednesday Social*** – 2nd December, 8:30pm onwards at the Library Pub

There may be no room at the Inn in Bethlehem, but there is plenty of room for us all to have a pint and a burger at The Library Pub…everybody is welcome!
