Fell Race @ The Roaches Tearoom
Oct 22 @ 10:30 am – 4:00 pm

As always, last years’ Olympian is bequeathed the challenge of organizing the following fell race. Ruth Hardy has planned a route around the Staffordshire edges but as always it’s hush-hush until race day. All that we know is that it will be around 7k and to be at the Roaches Tearoom (ST13 8TY) at 10.30am for an 11.00am departure.

AGM
Dec 3 @ 5:30 pm – 10:00 pm

AGM is 5.30-6.30pm. Food at 6.30pm BUT you must have ordered by 5.30pm. The pub is offering a short menu but only way they can prepare everything to be ready around 6.30 is if orders are in before AGM starts.

After the food, the holiday slideshow, starting around 7.30pm. Please bring your slides on a memory stick (or email them to me by saturday evening). Please keep it to no more than around 10 minutes of slides so that there is time to see everyone’s slides without running too late with school the next day.

There is a resonable sized free public carpark 50 yards the hill from the Norfolk Arms towards Stockport, just above the Midland Hotel. There are also public car parks slightly further up the hill behind the Purple Pakora and opposite in the train station

A reminder that we are voting on the changes to the constitution reviewed at the last AGM. The details have been in the website members area since last year and can still be viewed there.

Patterdale Hut Meet @ George Starkey Hut
Jan 12 – Jan 14 all-day

Leader: Penny Carroll
This year we are returning to the ever-popular George Starkey Hut in Patterdale. The hut is ideally located for walking, mountain biking and winter climbing if the conditions are favourable. Unfortunately the members’ room is now reserved for the Alpine Club so there are only 22 places available and the cost for the weekend will be £25.

Make sure you email me and transfer £25 into the club account to secure your place.

It goes without saying that the last couple of dodgy winters will be compensated for with fat ice, miles of off piste skiing and fantastic cold/clear/crisp weather. See the forum for more details:

Gower Peninsula Early May Bank Holiday Meet
May 4 – May 7 all-day

Organiser: Jules Lane

The Gower peninsula is a lovely place to climb. It’s limestone like south Pembroke but rather more friendly, with a real holiday vibe. You may well have been there in the past but as a club we have not been there for quite a few years, so let’s put that right.

Eskdale Camping Meet
Jun 29 – Jul 1 all-day

Organiser: Mike Tempest

An outstanding opportunity to experience the highest crags in England. There are very few places in Britain that offer the breadth of high calibre climbing that can be enjoyed on the crags of Scafell. East Buttress, Scafell Crag, Pike’s Crag and Esk Buttress provide many routes and scrambles of all grades to suit all tastes. The Wainwright baggers will also be ideally placed to complete all or some of the Eskdale Horseshoe.

The plan is to camp/bivvy at the Sampson’s Stones in Upper Eskdale (grid ref NY 217 053) – a stunning location on a grassy knoll with great tent pitches and even bouldering from the tent door. The outlook over Great Moss and the River Esk is fantastic. The walk in is a good hour, and some might say nearer 90 minutes. The shortest approach (a little boggy) would be from Cockley Beck, but the more scenic approach would be from the foot of Hardknott Pass on the Eskdale Green side via Brotherilkeld Farm.
