Indoor meets & club weekends are cancelled till further notice.
As you know from our website the club walk for 9th of August is to the Cairngorms.
We want to run a bus and as such have contacted Hamish Gordon. He is implementing the same conditions as other companies, such as Stagecoach, which means only half the numbers for the size of the bus can travel.
So to that end we are going to hire either a 33 seater bus which will hold 15 or a 49 seater which will hold 23 people. We will charge £12 still and club funds will make up the difference.
June Smith needs to have a list of names by 31st of July.
If you want to go on the bus on 9th of August please contact June Smith asap. I'd prefer if you pay online directly and say Augwalk for the reference.
The monthly Club walk, normally using a coach for transport, is a core part of the Club's activities. We usually plan 3 different levels of walks to suit all ages and abilities, but we also encourage members to plan their own walks in the area. The walk is normally on the 1st Sunday after the club meeting.
The current cost of a seat on the coach is £12. You can either pay for a seat in person at the indoor meeting on the first Tuesday of the month, or contact June Smith by phone on 07532 061148 or by email. If you book after the meeting, you will be expected to pay on the coach. Please note that it is customary to give a £1 tip to the driver.
The cut-off date for booking a seat on the bus is the last Wednesday before the Sunday walk, as we need to know how many members are going on the coach in order to confirm the details with the supplier. Bookings cannot be guaranteed after that deadline, so please book early.
The coach leaves from the car park behind Boots the Chemists at Glenrothes Town Centre at 7.30am prompt. There are also additional pick up points. If you wish to be picked up on the way, please tell us when you book.
Any walks not completed will be put back to the walks programme in 2021.
Members booked on a club walk should continually check the weather forecast/ club website for any changes to the planned walk, the club will try to offer an alternative walk if possible.
If in any doubt contact the bus/walks convenor.
If you book and pay for your seat in person, but then fail to turn up in time for the transport for whatever reason, you will not get a refund. If you telephone and book your seat, but then fail to turn up for whatever reason, you are still liable for payment. A failure to pay will exclude you from any future walks.
If there are not enough members booked to make a bus economically viable, then alternative forms of transport, such as a minibus or car sharing will be arranged.
In exceptional circumstances, such as very low numbers or severe weather, the walk may be cancelled and a full refund given.
Equipment and Fitness
