Fell Race organiser: Mark Ward, or possibly a Mark Ward impersonator depending on his work schedule!
As always, the exact details for the race will be kept a closely guarded secret until the last minute – can’t be having any secret training now can we! The rules will of course penalise those with too high a level of physical fitness and ensure that any old punter can be crowned the next fell race champion. Meet at Sir William Hill Road Parking (S32 1AX) at 10.30am for an 11.00am start.
Meets Forum organiser: David Kirsfelds
An informal discussion of next years meets calendar will take place in The Moon Inn (Stoney Middleton, S32 4TL) following the fell race – we take your post exercise re-hydration and nutrition needs very seriously! The pub has kindly said that they will reserve some tables for us so keep an eye on Facebook or the website nearer the time to sign up. Discussion will commence post-lunch (approx. 2.00pm) and focus on generating the Tuesday Evening meets list and ideas for weekend and extended meets. Ideas from this discussion will be taken forward into the online voting system which will go live later on in the month.
Organiser: Ian & Jean Read

Winter Lecture: Everest The Old Way

This evening John Driskell and David Peckett take us through the story of driving from Barnsley to Basecamp. Having saved for two years, 5 of them set off in Nov 1967 and reached Everest in March of the following year! They lay claim to the first recorded trek to Everest. In 2010 they returned – a very different journey to a very different basecamp! We’ll hear about the initial journey, way back when, as well as some musings on the more recent trip.
AGM starts at 5.00pm
Food at 6.00pm
