Welcome (Trinity 2009)

Hello and welcome back! I hope you all had a good Easter vac and are ready to get out walking again!

Local Walks continue every weekend 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 Mike first leads us to mid Wales to explore the mountain scenery of this oft-forgotten area. At the end of 5th week, Jaya John and Barney head to the ever popular Lakes, and Jaya John, Jamie and Melissa head to Pembrokeshire at the end of 7th week. Finally, in 9th week, Helen and Jaya John head to Tayside in Scotland for a longer trip hopefully including the ascent of Ben Lawers (9th highest mountain in the UK).

If you can't quite manage a full weekend away there will be a Minibus Day Trip this term. Matt and Michelle head for the Sussex Coast at the end of 3rd week.

Kanishka has organised a fun-packed Social Schedule for this term. Our major event this term is the Punt Party (Saturday 6th June, 6th week).

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 page 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) or any of our leaders.

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 Rachel (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!
