Welcome to the payment page for our trip to the Lake District!
We have booked Lowe House in the heart of Conisotn for us all to stay in. Check out the map for the exact location. I've stayed here many times and its quite luxurious for a climbing hut (even more so than Glan Dena in Wales was)! There are good showers, a very nice lounge with a wood burning stove and a massive kitchen. There is plenty of parking, and its within easy walking distance of shops and pubs.
For insurance reasons these trips are aimed at ESC members and for that reason they will have been emailed a £10 discount code. If you are not a member and try to use the code your ticket will be invalidated by us and give me a headache so please don't! The discount code only works for one person at a time so if you want to pay for multiple people with a code just buy one ticket at a time.
If your not a member of the club you count as a prospective member for insurance reasons (ie are covered) for the first three months since you first did a club activity. If you've been coming on club trips for longer than that you'll need to join up to come. The link for that is here: https://www.entrycentral.com/club/105433
The breakdown of the costs is as follows:
2 nights ESC member - £25
2 nights NON member - £35
Communal Meal Saturday Night = £3
Make sure you add yourself to the Facebook event page arrange for car sharing. If your not on facebook get in touch and I'll help sort you a lift. The process for car sharing is as follows; if you can offer a lift then post on the facebook event where you live and how many spaces you have, if you want a lift comment underneath that persons post untill the car is full. Costs are set by the driver and split between everyone in the car.
We hope to have members from both Worcester and Birmingham coming along so there should be plenty of opportunites for lift sharing whereever you live.
Activies for the weekend
The club will have an activity arranged for each day if you want to join in. Plenty of things to do including, mountain biking, hill walking, climbing and some swimming in the lake! If you want to climb but need instruction please let us know in advance via the facebook page - we can accomodate a small number of novices, but if there are large numbers then we'll arrange a lesson. We expect everyone coming to have passed their belay test if they want to climb. Most of the climbing take a drive to get to so I will be biking on at least one day and scrambling on another (but you don't have to follow me!)
Anyone that comes along can can do what ever they want, if you want to do something specific share it on the Facebook event page. If you want us to organise something send one of the commitee a message.
What you need to bring
Food and alcohol for the weekend, although you can top up easily enough if needed. The communal meal will be on the Saturday night.
Sleeping bag and pillow case (there are pillows but you need to have your own case for it).
Any gear you have that you need for the activities including a bike if your going biking (or find somewhere nearby to hire one). if you are a novice climber and need any gear (including harness and helmets) please let us know in advance via the facebook page - we can accomodate a small number of novices.
