Welcome (Hilary 2007)

Oxford University Walking Club welcomes you to Hilary Term 2007...

Hello again from die Präsidentin!

Welcome back to Oxford for the spring. As usual, this website is packed with wonderful outdoor offerings and chances to get outside and enjoy! Have a browse...
As usual there will be a local walk held every Saturday and Sunday of term. What better way to get a bit of fresh air than with a relaxing stroll in the surrounding countryside? Come along and bring a friend -- you don't even have to be a member to join in! Find a complete schedule on the local walk page.
Our weekend trips this term are heading far and wide, to some of Britain's most remote and beautiful locations. Explore the rugged hills of the Peak District or the barren moor of Exmoor, or get in two days of peak-bagging in the classic mountain regions of the Lake District and Snowdonia. For the full low-down on all these, have a wee shifty at the weekend trip page.
If you can't spare a weekend but fancy a break, join one of our minibus day-trips. We will be going to the New Forest in 4th week, and in 7th week Christopher will again set off for the South Downs -- 3rd time lucky, as sadly this trip has had to be cancelled twice in previous terms due to lack of leaders/drivers. Check out the minibus daytrip page for full info.
As usual, you can sign up for all trips at Free Tea on Wednesday of 1st week, 5pm in Wadham Old Refectory. You can also join the club or renew your membership then the membership page for more details.
This term, description sheets for the trips will not be handed out at Free Tea -- we are aiming to reduce our paper trail! You can find the sheets in pdf format linked from the trip pages. Also, remember to read carefully the equipment list and participation statement and bring a signed copy with you when you arrive for a trip.
Anyway, I do hope that you will find something on the site for you -- there is so much on offer! As always, feel free to approach me with any comments or questions: drop me a mail at president(a)ouwc.org or grab me for a chat at one of our events.
Have a fantastic term!
