Silver and Gold update October 2020

With the new lockdown measures in place we are now only able to meet in groups of 15. This includes adults and young people.

The only way we can manage this is to get the Silver and Gold groups to create their expedition walking groups. You need to be in a team of six and once you know your team, email Mike at [email protected]

The sessions will be held inside and will be limited to 45 minutes. We will be meeting twice a week on a Wednesday and a Thursday. I need to have your groups emailed to me by Wednesday 7th October. That will allow me to send out some information and decide which groups will meet on which nights.

Silver Group 1 & 2 will meet on a Wednesday from 6.30 – 7.45pm

Silver Group 3 & 4 will meet on a Thursday from 6.30 – 7.45pm

Gold Group 1 & 2 will meet on a Wednesday from 8pm – 8.45pm

Gold group 3 & 4 will meet on a Thursday from 8pm – 8.45pm

This will start from October 14th/15th.

We are still planning to hold the practice expedition, Silver from Saturday 24th – Monday 26th and Gold from Thursday 29th – Sunday November 1st. We may have to hold the expeditions locally.

There are lots of rules and guidance we have to constantly monitor to make sure we are working safely with the COVID-19 regulations.

We will work out the costs and any excess money paid will be returned to those who have overpaid.

Here are some things which we will be looking at during the sessions. You need to make sure you have a menu planned, that you have looked at the kit list and that you understand how to use a map and compass.
