Socials

UPDATE: Due to COVID our regular monthly slots at the Devereux Pub are on hold until further notice. 'Virtual' social events are now being scheduled with full details below. If you would like to host, please email the social secretary (social.sec@londonmountaineeringclub.com)

Social evenings are held on the third Thursday of each month except in December, where the Xmas calendar will dictate the socials. We meet in the upstairs room of a pub called The Devereux at 20 Devereux Court, Temple, London WC2R 3JJ (map).

Socialising starts in the pub from 7pm and the main event kicks off at about 8pm in the upstairs room.

Sometimes we have a purely social evening or a quiz night, but socials are talks and slide or movie presentations by outside speakers or talented club members on climbing and mountaineering related topics.

LIVE STREAM: Rock climbing in Quetta- Pakistan
Thu 16 Apr 2020

W. K. MARPLES and R. O. G. THOMSON wrote an article in The Himalayan Journal published in 1940 describing a number of climbs setup around Quetta by 'Quetta Slabbers'.
Among their many finds was a classic 1,500ft high multi-pitch route up The Grand ArĂȘte of Takatu , a twin peaked mountain with an altitude of 3,400m located to the North East of the city.
Zaheer visited Quetta in the Spring of 2019 with the aim to recreate the climb with local climbers. Was it a success? Join the live stream and find out yourself.

Thu 18 Jun 2020

The LMC committee have decided to hold the 2020 AGM in place of the March AGM date, which was cancelled due to lockdown restrictions.

This is the first time we will all gather online with so many people. Like any good day out on the hill, we appreciate your support to move at pace and stay focussed.

Questions to the committee:
In these uncertain times, the committee will be answering your questions. For ease on the night, please send questions in advance to secretary@londonmountaineeringclub.com

Committee reports:
All reports are available online ahead of the AGM and a short summary will be provided by each committee member on the night.

Election of the 2020 committee:
Hopefully you are aware that an emergency committee meeting held in March 2020 resulted in the use of Article 5(b) of the constitution, which allows the committee to fill vacancies or to co-opt members to the committee. The current committee can be found at https://www.londonmountaineeringclub.com/about-us/meet-the-committee, and the co-opted members are noted with an *

We will be voting on all committee member roles, and currently most committee members are standing for their roles again. However, nominations are open for all roles, for any club member to be nominated to.

Venue:
The AGM will be held using Zoom.

Navigation Webinar
Thu 09 Jul 2020

By the time we get back to the hills properly the clouds might be thick and the night's long. Prepare for that bleak mountain clag by joining us for some navigation practice from the comfort of your own living room. A short "know your map symbols quiz" will be followed by a look at contours, route planning, hazard identification, and may be even using a compass.

Turn up from 7:30pm to share stories of that time you got lost coming off the Glyders or that time you had to use your compass to eat porridge because you forgot your spork.

We'll start from 8pm and we'll try to get done by 9pm. Have your compass at the ready.
