Event Description

It has been a long time since the Mob stayed at the this hut, affectionately call the K Shoes of old.  As with all good huts there is a long waiting list to get them and this is one of the hardest to acquire.  Over the years we have had some of our best meets at this venue, which now boasts a fire pit and seating area.  Due to the popularity of this meet we are giving paid up members first chance to book places, and later on it will be thrown open to non members. The hut has 26 beds with the usual selfcatering facilities. There is also an option to tag the Sunday night on which I will be looking into nearer the date.  The cost for the weekend is £24 for both nights per bed. Can I suggest that we have a deposit of £12 per person to make things easy.  Payment can be made through the online banking method or at a club meeting. Kind regards Derek

As for the Sunday night, as some of you already know they have a working party group up on that night so we are restricted to numbers which at present maybe around a dozen.  All we can do is suck it and see and maybe bring a mat or poss sleep in cars / vans for that night we will just have to see.  Don't forget to bring a sleeping bag and it may get quite warm so bring a light one.  It's been a long time coming so lets hope we have some reasonable weather, not that that will stop us from having a good weekend but it does help.  See you up there Kind regards Derek ((-:

Hi Caitlin as numbers stand there maybe a spare place on the weekend if so your friend may have a place if he's nothing else sorted.

I have had a count up and we have 20 definate beds taken up to now, we will also be taking up the option of the Sunday night for anyone that is interested.  Please can all those going send in their money in full asap, I will be throwing it open to non members at the end of March which I have a few interested so book early if you want to come. (-: I will be at the next meet on Wednesday 1st March

If members who haven't paid can come down to the next meet and pay that would be very helpfully.  As said I will be throwing it open to non members at the end of Feb so book early to avoid disappointment. Thanks Derek

A Rite of passage

It was the Friday night of our February winter meet . We were the first to arrive at the Alex McIntyre hut near North Ballachulish and had ventured out in search of somewhere to eat . As we doubled back from a wrong turn in search of the Loch  Leven Hotel  John B took a call from Andy A suggesting the forecast for the following day favoured doing the  Aonach Eogach ridge. The conversation continued and the next thing I knew we were committed !

The following day we rose at…

Man Versus Horsepower

Man verses Horse

Saturday night a post came through via Whatsapp about a Mob MTB ride on following morning buthe forecast was for a winter front to push through turning to rain later did nothing not the most inspiring.

Having Ridden up past Tottington to Holcombe for 9am there was no sign of anyone so a quick check of the phone…

Snow fell as we…
