Participating in meets is what the club is all about. Meets are run by members, for members.
The club thrives by having members take an active interest in the meets that are run. To volunteer to steward a meet, or to suggest a new meet, please contact our meets secretary. The FAQ page offers advice on what to expect on a meet and guidelines for organising meets. Remember that if you have spotted potential for a new meet, the chances are high that others will also be interested!

Given the that hut may still be unavailable for use at this date, we are planning to organise this as a camping event.
The Welsh Government is expected to allow travellers from England into Wales in the next few weeks, and camping at commercial campsites is expected to be allowed from the first weekend in August. Therefore, we hope that, although we will not be able to go to he hut, we can at least have our barbecue amongst the mountains of Snowdonia.
We will be camping at the Dolgam Campsite (situated by the river between Betws-y-coed and Capel Curig. [https://www.dolgam-snowdonia.co.uk/camping] The fee will be £7 per person per night.
And finally, please consider how you will travel to this event. Even if we are now able to congregate in socially distant groups, we will still need to maintain distancing to and from meets.More
