HIKING WEEKLY NEWS - 25th January 2016

Hello Hikers,
A very Happy New Year to you all! I hope you have had a lovely break and are ready for some more amazing hiking adventures as we have some cracking trips organised for semester two!

COMING UP THIS WEEK…
***Freshers Fair 2*** Tuesday 26th January, 11am-4pm @The Lounge and Pulse in the Union

The club will have a stall at the refreshers fair tomorrow. So if you are new to the club and would like to find out more, it will be a perfect opportunity to come and ask the important questions in life such as “Should I wear stilettos or flippers on hikes?” or “Do they sell beer at the Library Pub?” We are not sure if we will be in the lounge or Pulse, but hopefully there will be a table plan in the union foyer.

***Wednesday Social*** – 27th January, 8:30pm onwards at The Library Pub, 
It may be dry January for many, but that is no excuse not to come along as we all have so much to catch up on and there is the fantastic £2.50 burger offer! Everyone welcome!

---Club Buffs--- Will be on sale at the pub socials throughout semester 2 if people would like one. Please speak to our Gear Sec Esther.

***GIAG Hike to Horton*** Sunday 31st January, Meeting at Parkinson Steps at 9am sharp. Cost £12

Our first hike of the New Year will be in Horton - a village in the Yorkshire Dales close to the source of the River Ribble surrounded by some of Yorkshire's most iconic landscapes. We'll be close to the three peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside, so get your hiking boots on and join us for a great day out in the great outdoors. You will need boots, a packed lunch, woollies and full waterproofs. We will turn people away if they do not have the right kit. If you are unsure then please see the link below to our full kit list requirement.

This event is open to non-members, and tickets for the event can be bought for £12 on the Leeds University Union Website:https://www.luu.org.uk/ents/event/11022#

We should be back at University by 7pm depending on traffic.
