JUST WHO THE HECK ARE WE, THEN?
JUST WHO THE HECK ARE WE, THEN?
Howdy there, and welcome to your all-new trip sheet.
For those of you that have not had the pleasure of meeting us yet, we are Donna and Justine and we are the new editor/finanace managers for the club, I as you may have gathered am the editor.
We are both relatively new to the club (compared to most of you old timers), but come highly recommended from Penny, and we do have lots of experience. I believe between us we have covered every position in the Unversity hiking
Club, and had lots of satisfied members between us! (Just ask Justine about that one!)
Well, I am sure I will meet those of you I havenít in due course, in the mean time please enjoy your quarterly newsletter, feeling free to contribute to it at any time what so ever.
THIS IS YOUR NEWSLETTER (so use it or you will just get me waffling on to fill space!!)
OFFICAL SHOT TRIP
Parkend, Forest of Dean
Enjoy the autumnal colours of twenty million trees in the Royal Forest of Dean. We have booked Fountain lodge a luxurious bunkhouse conveniently attached to the Fountain Inn in the heart of the forest.
The accommodation comprises of 4 bunkhouses (of 4,5,9 &12 beds, making it ideal for family groups), showers, TV-video, Barbecue area, kitchen and all for the bargain price of £8 a night. Breakfast can be ordered from the pub next door!
We have to have a minimum of 22 people so the plan is to allocate the two smaller rooms to family groups. Send Gustav a £5 deposit to secure a bed or room.
See the note later about thecheese evening to be held on this trip
Xmas Dinner 2000

Brief details only available, but the Xmas dinner this year will be in Milan. Mark needs definite names (no maybes), in the next couple of weeks, so that he can book the flights.
The flight will cost £85 return inc., if booked shortly
No accommodation is booked yet, and further details are to follow. ContactMark Hows, Tim, or Chris Turton if you want to go.
The New Year Trip
Wednesday 27th December - Tuesday 2nd January 01
The next New Year trip is now booked, we have got 20 beds with the option of up to 27. The venue is theBlackwater Hostel, Kinlochleven
It appears to be a very luxurious bunkhouse with en-suite bathrooms and TVs in each dorm, so we can all suffer that hangover in style, in bed! And not feel compelled to visit duck ponds instead, unlike last year!!
Walking will no doubt consist of Mamores, Glen Coe, and even Nevis is only up the road (a New Years Day must, unless of course we find a suitable duck pond/pub to visit instead).
The cost is £10 a night; so if you would like to go, please send your name toMike. I believe he is not looking for actual deposits until September.
Any other trips going on?
I have heard rumours of numerous trips that may be happening in the summer. If you are organising a trip just email me the details and I will add it all in the next newsletter. If you are booking a trip, it maybe a good idea to send me the details so I can check dates of trips donít clash
