Just got back from Wales - we had an enjoyable and energetic trip! Some running around the mountains kept us all fit! If you went on the trip and took a camera (as most of you did) could you email me your pictures firstname.lastname@example.org or bring them on a CD to the meeting on Thursday.
Trip 2 - Lake district . Week 6 (28 th -31 st May).
We are taking initial deposits of £30 this week. We have had lots of interest for the trip. If you could email me email@example.com with your names we will get your signed up. It's a first come - first served basis. The final cost of the trip may be more than £30 as we might go Alton towers but as yet we are still undecided as this will increase the cost of the trip by about £20. Depending on what people want to do - we could run it as a day trip caz I really wanna go!!
Hi guys, scotland trip report is up - Thanks ADRIC!!! Click here to check it out. Al and Kias pictures are also up online, you can find them here!
BBQ on at the end of this week - come on!! email dan for more info firstname.lastname@example.org

Trip 1-----we are going back to Wales for the week 3 (8th and 9th of May) trip. We have lots of ideas for things to do, but if there are any specific areas in Wales or peaks that you want to climb let us know. Im a big fan of the glyders area- for more info have a look here
There are some pretty cool things up there including the cantilever, the jagged summit of Glyder Fach and also the Adam and Eve stones. According to one website - 'The summit is marked with two big stones, which are called Adam and Eve. According to tradition, he who jumps from one stone to the other is proclaimed Freeman of Tryfan. If you see the two stones, one can hardly believe that anybody is so foolish to make the jump: if you miss, you'll have a proper chance of taking a fast route down Tryfan...' Some pictures of the region can be seen here.

Trip 2---------Return to the Lakes!! This is week 6 (28th-31st May). This will be on the bank holiday weekend and we will return on the Monday evening. We are hoping to stay in a very nice camping barn in the area and do a couple of great walking including Helvellyn.
The website below has some great pictures of the area in the winter and summer time. http://www.nigelspencer.co.uk/web-pages/uk-mountain-pages/england-pages/england-lakes-helvellyn.htm On the Monday we will be hoping to round the year off with a day trip to Alton towers.. bring it on!!! We are unsure of the cost of the trip at present as we are negotiating a group ticket discount, but it is likely that it will be an extra £17 for admission into the park. Check out

Laserquest - 2nd march, email Dan email@example.com
Hi everyone - sorry for the lack of updates, having a v busy term!
Adric has uploaded the latest trip report and below is a small
snippet of whats to come.
'The rain was constant, the wind was strong and the path up the
mountain was now more like a river, than a path. We all approached
this challenge with great determination to beat the weather and
conquer the mountain, we even had a bit of comedy provided by the
bag fairy (Rupie), who had taken to wearing bin bags as he had
no waterproof trousers.'
Find the rest of it here
Ok we are going to start cranking up the social calender soon,
with laserquest on 18th of feb, sound ok with everyone?
Take it easy

first few weeks of term. This is normally on the student night
which is a Wednesday.Bring it on Oxford Uni..
This term Cowley road is going to bear the strain of Fellwalkers
on a sesh. Depending on peoples timetables we will either do this
mid or end of the week. We may well end up in Clementines.
End of term meal
I know it's a long way off, but we decided that we would do it
all over again, just as a way of spending any extra cash we have
left over on booze for the meal.:) yay
Happy New Year!
Hope you all had a good New Years and looking forward to getting
stuck back into uni life. just a quick update to say that there

1 tequila, 2 tequila, 3 tequila, floor....
For you guys out there that also are believed to have alcohol dependency
we have got the pub-crawl on next Friday, which could turn out to
be vvvvery messy. I was thinking that we could go to the bridge
or Po Na Nas after, which is pretty cool. I liked Pdome, so actually
if anyone fancies going back there, im up for it. If we wanna go
out in town, guys chuck on a shirt and leather shoes. We will have
a chat about it on Thursday.
Supposed to be doing my dissertation, but im hooked on this website
at the moment...
just a quick update-We had a great lake district trip.
Here is a link to the trip report,
and a quick extract….
“We sat at the top of the second peak, and took in the
amazing view. Ullswater Lake below us, with Helvellyn appearing
in the distance. Sitting on the summit eating our lunch, we decided
that we could get a few hours extra at the pub in, if we set of
sooner rather than later… that’s just what we did.
After taking a few group pictures we set off down the mountain.
Phil proceeded to tell us about his time in the German paramedic
services, including one particular story in which an LSD user believer
himself to have become a carton or orange juice. Not letting Phil
drive him to hospital, as he feared that Phil would drink him…

Hi there boys and girls, your loving VP here. Just to let you know
that the website, but i think you have probably gathered already
by reading this.
What news type stuff have i got for you... Hmm ok
A group of us went out for a few swift beers and played some laserquest
last night, ive got a banging headache - from the beer tho, not
the laserquest. We played a group of Oxford uni students, and unfortunately
they whooped us. We just need some practice guys. We had a really
great time, so i think that this will become more of a regular event.
Was pretty damn cheap, only about £4 of 2 games..
This is planned for week 6,November 8-9th. Its going to
be an all dayer... Should be faaaaaaaantastic. We
may well end up at a club - parkend of the bridge or something.
We will post mobile number on the email we send out, so if you want
to meet us during the day.
Thursday meeting 8 at sports bar
A s per usual, get the beers in and meet loads of friendly people.
If you haven't been before, and you are a bit worried about turning
up and not knowing who we are, just email us email@example.com
- we could arrange to wear like pink carnations or something...i
Oh yeah, almost forgot- been suggested we go on to feedback at
Morals after- they have a club type scenario going on there, so
would be worth checking it out. We went there before, and it was
£1 a pint.
Week 4 trip Lake district
(24th - 26th October)
Just a reminder that we will be taking money for the trip this week
at the meeting. Cost is £30, plus £5 if you haven't
