21st/22nd Sep, Buttermere Hut Meet, Birkness Coach House

Postby Dave C » Sun Aug 19, 2018 10:49 pm

Booking opens on Tuesday 21st August for the first hut meet of the Autumn.

To book a place please send me a cheque for £20 payable to "Leeds Mountaineering Club".
My address is in the private section of the bulletin board.

Details of LMC's hut booking rules on the website here

Birkness Hut details on the FRCC website

"Buttermere is a valley somewhat hidden from the mainstream buzz of the Lakes with a few gems of crags. There are some easily reached crags (Yew Crags, Buckstone Howe), higher crags in fine positions (High Crag) and the high mountain crags in Birkness Combe (Eagle Crag and Grey Crag). For those days when only the coast has fair weather, St Bees Head is within easy reach.

"Both Borrowdale and Newlands are a very short drive away and the Gable and Pillar crags are accessible with a longish hike.

"There are two pubs in Buttermere, The Fish and The Bridge.
They rival each other fiercely in terms of hospitality. "

It's a slow burner Andy.

Perhaps there should be Cheese code names for the contestants, err, I mean attendees.

I shall have to think very caerphilly about who gets what name thought...

Ah, Strictly. Just a couple of weeks until the big launch, then life becomes bearable again :D
As for cheeses, can I please not be Edam. I can't be fussed with the red wax

I will be putting a cheque in post on Friday - on dog-sitting duty in Otley.

Clearly a lot of careful thought has gone into our cheese code names. But I still can't work out what hidden offensive/amusing or other deeper meaning there is in my cheese name.

This is troubling me :?

Perhaps we can each bring our assigned cheese and work it all out over a shared platter :)

I'm very happy with my cheese allocation and will bring a fine lump of Red Leicester to the party.

I don't think I have knowingly had Double Gloucester.
Always on the lookout for new experiences . . . :roll:

Does it align closely with your Socialist principles . . . ?
A do like a blue veined cheese, hoping that doesn't make me look like a Tory!
