Wednesday 19th October


The star event of the year! This is where we review the trips and events of the past year and vote on the committee to lead us into 2006. This is a club run by its members, for its members and it is very important that as many of you as possible come and let us know what you think.

The meeting starts at 8:30pm, or when enough people have arrived.

Sunday 23rd October

Turpin's Trail Waymark

Turpin's Trail


The notorious highwayman Dick Turpin was born in Hempstead and went to school in Thaxted. A new way-marked walk links these towns and the picturesque village of Great Sampford.

Meet at 10am at the Red Lion in Great Sampford. We will walk to Hempstead, return to the Red Lion for lunch (bring sandwiches if you wish), and in the afternoon we'll walk towards West Wood and Thaxted.

Wednesday 26th October

Canada Slides

View from Whistler Mountain

Jim, Mike, Dave J & Ian

The boys came back from their holiday to Canada with tales of spectacular walks, weather and bear sightings. Come see the pictures and hear the tales from the guys themselves. Apparently Ian alone took enough shots for at least 4 slide shows, so there is plenty of great material!

Note: Unless otherwise stated, Wednesday events start at 8.30pm at the YMCA in Victoria Road, Chelmsford
