Minutes of May meeting
Minutes of meeting held on 10th May 2012
Chairman had sent his apologies.
Treasurer: Carol reported finances in a healthy position.
The last club walk was Carol’s over Wild Boar Fell, 15 out. In view of a bad forecast, Carol had an alternative low level route planned but the majority wanted to do the original route. The weather was not as bad as expected and everyone enjoyed the walk.
The next walk will be from Barningham, led by Albert, 21 miles.
Dave Firth said just one walk was needed for the end of November to complete this year’s programme.
Anniversary walk – 22nd September. This will be 25 miles. Alan had made enquiries about back-up transport and easily the best solution was to use a taxi minibus. This would be an 8 seater complete with driver who would be happy to have our refreshments and other gear in the bus at a cost of between £100 - £120. We all agreed this was a very good deal and Alan was to book.
We also discussed where we would have our Christmas lunch. It was felt The Fox and Hounds was not as good last year and we would look for somewhere else. There was a suggestion that we use the Fox Covert, as support to them for our usage of their room and Edith would make enquiries.
Website: Eva said she continued to put on photos she was sent and any other information as available, including aa write up of walks.
Hanging Stone: We have 5 entries to date. An e-mail had been sent to Ken to circulate to running clubs. Letters had been sent to the usual Authorities by Carol.
Equipment: Albert would let us have a list of equipment needed which is stored by various members of the club. Burners had been brought to the meeting for Tom to service.
Meeting closed at 8.30pm.
