The SHOT (Salford Hiking Old Timers) club was formed in 1993 and is composed of ex Salford University Hiking Club members, but more recently we have opened our doors and many friends and acquaintances have joined in some of our activities. We now have over 50 members.

Glyndyfrdwy, North Wales , North Wales, June 2002

Friday 28th - Sunday 30th June

The Berwyn Arms provided Mashy with a memorable 30th Birthday way back in 1999 when he was rich, young and attractive. Some of us had an equally memorable hangover. Three years on will have recorded some changes, but seeing as this venue was so popular, it is well worth a repeat visit. The landlady has assured us that we will hardly recognise the place as many improvements have been made. They have developed their outdoor activity side and also the conference facilities. One welcome addition is a newly constructed wooden terrace overlooking the Dee Valley. No doubt late beers will also remain a popular feature.

We have provisionally booked places for 25 people. This number will have to be confirmed nearer the date. The accommodation remains flexible regarding the rooms allocated to us. What has been reserved is the two smaller rooms for families. One has four and the other has two beds. The price per night, which includes a hearty breakfast, should be in the region of 12. The exact figure has faded from the memory.

The Berwyn Arms lies directly on the A5 a few hundred yards west of Glyndyfrdwy village, which is itself 5 miles east of Llangollen. It is a white fronted 17th Century coaching inn. Four miles further west is Corwen. For computer nerds try these two web sites.

The Berwyn Mountains is a large massif, much of it over 2000ft, which rises immediately south of the pub. Cader Berwyn (827m) forms the focal point of numerous lateral ridges which provide extra illusive tops for the peak baggers amongst us. Once the height is gained walking is fairly undulating. The steep sided valleys surrounding the Berwyns are well worth exploring, especially the Dee Valley with its langourous meanders and steam railway. The larger tourist honeypots of Bala and Llangollen offer alternative attractions.

To book a place please send Gustav a 5 deposit. Please remember that as we are staying at a pub and money has been paid up front, cancellations/changes may not be possible.

DIRTY WEEKEND Sept. 20th-22nd Erddig, near Wrexham

After a long hiatus, Lynne is organising another "dirty weekend" of voluntary work for the National Trust.

We'll be staying in the Yale Hostel, two converted cottages on the Erddig estate with all the usual facilities, and will be working all day Saturday and on Sunday morning. We'll probably be repairing footpaths or fixing fences or something like that. On Sunday afternoon there's a tour of the property for those who aren't in too much of a hurry to get away.

Accommodation is free in return for our services, and 10 will cover food for the whole weekend, from Friday supper to Sunday lunch.

You'll need a sleeping bag, a pillow, and old clothes and boots for working in. The pub is a fair way away so you might want to bring your own liquid supplies.

Anyone can come along (but no unaccompanied kids please), up to a maximum of 18 people in total.

Contact Lynne if you are interested or would like more information.

Donna or Justine for more details.
