If anyone else was thinking of going at the same time Olympic Holidays have still got places available - same flight and accomodation etc. Only the price has changed - £711 for two people, £356 each. A saving of £30 per person.

Why so few Events?

Some thoughts - all below is my own personal opinion and is a challenge to a small Mountaineering Club to improve their membership. I occasionally browse this site to keep in touch with what is going on.As usual there are very few events that members can join in with - a big disappointment. Every so often I wonder about joining the club but as there are so few activities published it doesn't seem worthwhile.I receive the minutes on a regular basis and speak occasionally with members.

Can you alter the entry for Kalymnos? It is currently showing as a January event. You need to change the date field to the actual date of the trip instead of January, otherwise it will disappear as the shown date passes.
