Welcome (Hilary 2009)

Hello and welcome to our new members! Also, welcome back to existing members, I hope you all had a good Christmas vac and are ready to get out walking again!

Local Walks continue every Saturday and Sunday during term time, giving you the chance to escape the city and explore other areas of Oxfordshire. There is no sign-up for these walks, just turn up at the given time and meeting place. You don't have to be a club member to go on local walks either, so bring your friends along too.

For this term's Weekend Trips Jaya John and Barney firstly travel to Northern Snowdonia to explore the mountain scenery. At the end of 5th week, Dave and Helen head to the ever popular Lakes, and Jaya John, Jakub and Michelle end the term with a long trip to the Galloway Hills, some of Scotland's most southerly mountains. Come along to Free Tea on Wednesday 1st week to sign up for trips.

If you can't quite manage a full weekend away there will be three Minibus Day Trips this term. Jakub and Laura go first at the end of 2nd week, followed by Michelle and Jaya John as they head to the Forest of Dean at the end of 3rd week before Jakub and Jaya John head to the Sussex coast in 5th week.

Svetlana has organised a fun-packed Social Schedule for this term. Our major event this term is the Annual Dinner.

The club is, as always, on the look-out for more leaders who are crucial to the running of our trips. The rules for becoming a leader were changed at the end of Hilary last year, to make it easier to become a leader, please see the leaders pag or get in touch with the Trip and Safety Coordinator for details. If you are interested in leading, talk to our Trip and Safety Coordinator Jaya John (trip.safety(a)ouwc.org).

Although leader numbers are limited, we still have a huge amount of support from current leaders, drivers and the committee. So thank you to all those who have been able to volunteer to lead and organise trips, or drive minibuses. If you would like to become a minibus driver contact our secretary Laura (secretary(a)ouwc.org).

If you are interested in joining the committee or have any other questions or queries, don't hesitate to get in touch (president(a)ouwc.org). See you all soon!
