Treasurer - Matt Fowthrop
Secretary - John Brandon

Approx 10 attendees.

Cath to put committee members on web site as administrators.

I'm sure we can sort a laptop out for him if req.

John b to put details about a small summer music festival on a campsite near Gisburn forest called
Testifest. - Fri 1st July to sun 3rd July , campsite is Hartleys farm nr Tosside Nr Sawley. A lad at work is part of the organisation of it. There are 40 tickets left. Let me know if you want any asap. Shown as Newhouse farm on google maps. Good campsite if biking at Gisburn. We will have to organise a trip there ! I can't go this yr but maybe next yr ?

Jordan T to look into booking Don Whillans hut for 2017

what is lastest on black sail booking ? Jb to ring Andy Ashton. We will need approx 8 definates and paid up on this booking as it is approx £1000 outlay.

Ian Brewster to look to book a winter 2017 meet back end of Feb probably.

Jordan Graham to book an event in sept , possibly Coniston Copper mines area.

Don't forget that Derek K has a club YHA card. Give him a call if you want to use it.

Can everyone try to put advance notice of events on the web site so other members can attend.
Some people may not know anything about a type of activity and would be able to join in to see if they like it ? This is particularly true for new members who we are looking to encourage.
If everyone put a few on it would be good for the club.

Thanks jb.

December Mob walk

The weather forecast had dire warnings for travel so very limited turn out Average age of the walkers was 70 y.o. There was just a small amount f snow on roads. But the regular track up Pendle hill was hard packed snow hence slippery. Took took the cross country route to Ogden Clough about 6ins of soft snow. Very few people out on the tops. Sorry the younger members were all at home watching City week in fact all back home before kick off
