BOS Mountain Skills 2 Training

  • April 13, 2013 · 2:00 PM

This event is now closed. For those who wish to acquire mountain skills such as: map and compass reading, navigation, route planning, emergency procedures, personal equipment and mountain hazards. It's possible to join even if you haven't done mountain skills 1.

 

According to Ronan "we may have to limit the numbers to 6 and then open a waiting list for another group (on the same weekend) as we would need another 5 to make it possible to go above 6 people at the discounted rate." I think the fairest way to do this so people are guaranteed a place and don't lose out on money is if we all pay the same amount and we all share the extra cost. There were 9 of us ((95*6) + (150*3)) / 9 so from my calculation if we still get 9 people it will be around €113.33 each. Ronan confirmed and said we'll leave the price to €110 each. He said he'll give us a refund back if he gets two more people to join us :) Payment and rsvp will be the same as before. Join the waiting list and once you've confirmed payment I'll add you to the list. You need to ring Ronan on Tel: [masked] Mob:[masked] to arrange payment.

 

Also, please note that we start the Saturday in the afternoon, about 2/3pm and walk into the night to finish about 10pm. Sunday is a 10am start. Location will be confirmed closer to the date.

    Wow! Judging from the pictures it looks like you guys had an amazing time. I don't know how in the world you could count your strides for distance in that steep and rocky terrain! LOL! I guess I'll have to find out once I do my MS2! :)

      Hi Maria Elelna. When are you free to do MS2? Please check previous message. Day 2 was just scrambling and teaching you how to do it safely. Great craic. No pics of night hike unfortunately.. too busy getting lost and soaked :)

    Ok so 5 have paid so far. Ronan thinks it's better to keep it at 5 to split the group evenly. So Maria Elena, John, Mary and Caroline.. I can organise another date for you guys. Just let me know which weekends you'll be available for April and May. Hopefully we'll find a common date

    Unfortunately I hurt my leg last weekend. I'm looking at 2-4 weeks recovery period so it's not certain I can make it. Recovery is going well but whether or not I can attend really depends on how fast I recover. I will hold off payment until I know for sure, but when is the latest payment must be made?

      Don't worry if you can't make it Maria Elena. A few people won't make it either. It will definitely be on another date :) Hope the recovery goes well. Take it easy

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
