WH Autumn Meet - Kinlochleven November 8&9th 2013

WH Autumn Meet - Kinlochleven November 8&9th 2013


Postby weaselmaster » Tue Aug 20, 2013 8:40 am

After a swift bit of correspondence with folk on here we've decided that the location of the next meet will be Kinlochleven and the dates will be Friday 8th and Sat 9th November.

I've booked out the whole of Blackwater Hostel, which has pretty good facilities and space for up to 39 in a variety of room sizes.

http://www.blackwaterhostel.co.uk/accommodation.shtml

I'm going to set the cost at £20 per night which gives a bit of flexibility with numbers - we need 25 people per night to break even. If we manage to fill it then I will refund some of the cost or keep it for a kitty :D

Please let me have names of those who would like to come along to the 10th - or is it the 11th or 12th?? meet.

I'll then get in touch about payment by PM - would like this settled within a fortnight after confirming you're coming.

I'll start a little prayer to the weather gods now for a good weather window :lol:

I'll keep note of the confirmed so far people on this first message, following Scoob's example for the last meet...

Phew!!, had a slight wobble there..........I'm on holiday in Spain first week in November :crazy:

But........return flight lands at Edinburgh 4.30 on the Friday afternoon..........it'll be straight home to an already packed car and then heading for Kinlochleven

Well done on the quick organising guys, that's impressive stuff!!! :clap:

I've sorted permission from MrsR - she says I'm allowed out :lol:

Having proven I'm a rufty toughty Englishman in the face of saturday's onslaught on Skye :lol: I have decided to opt for the warmth and comfort of the bunkhouse this time :lol:

I will PM re payment

Yeah I liked the look of the facilities too :wink:

Can you put down for me and Paul? - 2 bunks please.

Have stayed at Blackwater a number of times - great accommodation and choice of ice climbing or pubs for when the weathers bad.

Will pm you for cheque - thanks for organising.
