Jim Donaldson will be running a winter skills course, at a location to be decided closer to the time.
The cost will be £280 divided by the number of participants up to a total of 8 people. I have restricted to six to begin with in order to force an even distribution of participants, but please let me know if there is a problem with this.
There will be a second course on 4th Feb.
You will need plenty of warm clothes, plenty of food and full waterproofs. You will also need rigid boots, crampons and an ice axe - these can be rented from Jim at a cost of £10 / £7 / £7. Jim will provide helmets as part of the course cost. Please let us know if you will need any equipment.
By committing to this course, you are agreeing to pay for it. If we can get five people, the cost will be £56 per head (NB, this is very low for a winter skills course - I paid £70 per day last winter and thought I was getting a bargain!) - please assume it will cost that much; if we can get more folk, the cost will be lower. I need to let Jim know if we are going ahead by the end of the month, so I will be collecting money at that time. If people sign up later and I collect more money than is needed, this will obviously be returned to you ASAP. If you need to withdraw, refunds will be contingent on someone taking your place.
Can you please also comment regarding whether you can drive or if you will need a lift.
Refunds are not offered for this Meetup.
