Tyn Lon - Snowdonia - 25th/26th January 2019

Over-indulged over Christmas? Had enough of seeing your family and/or significant other (I know I have, the latter especially) and want to escape to a glorious mountain retreat in the middle of the Welsh mountains? Well then you've come to the right place.

Tyn Lon is one of the LMC's favourite huts, enough said!

**UPDATE**
The hut is the building on the other side of the tarmac area to the left of the Vaynol Arms in Nant Peris - https://tinyurl.com/yb76nf4h. There is a sign saying Tyn Lon next to the front door. Initial access is via the back door, through the fancy gates to the left of the property. Access info will be in the private section once I get details confirmed.

Parking spaces are available to the right of the hut in front of the church. Ensure the church gates are kept clear at all times. Also, do not park in the Llanberis Mountain Rescue or church marked spaces. Parking is limited so lift sharing is actively encouraged!

I think a group meal would be a nice idea, I propose spag bol. I need volunteers to do the following, the rest can contribute money/washing:

Meat bolognaise: Lisa
Spaghetti: Peter
Parmesan: Peter
Garlic bread: David Ponting
Veggie version/alternative: Tom & Jen
Side salad: Dave C
Dessert: Cranachan (Scottish Eton Mess without Meringue - Karl)

If anyone would like to celebrate Burns night, feel free to bring any other Scottish delicacies and or whiskey to the table. Mr Ponting, I fully expect you to be able to regale us with the Ode to a Haggis :D


1. Lisa Billington
2. David P
3. John A
4. Sam R
5. Tom J
6. Karl H
7. Hayley S
8. Will S
9. Jen T
10. Dave C
11. Peter
12. Vicky

So far, car sharing is as follows;
Car 1 - Lisa, Karl & Vicky
Car 2 - John, Peter and Hayley
Car 3 - Tom & Jen
Car 4 - Dave C & P
Sam?
Will?

We'll be in the large bunk room to the right at the top of the stairs, other rooms are for CMC members only. Vicky & I will hopefully be there between 7-8pm, so see you then!

Looking forward to this meet. Does anybody need a lift there? I want to leave from Burley at 7pm on the Friday evening and can give up to 3 people a lift.

All spaces in the hut have now been filled. If there is anyone who wants to attend who has not got a place, there is the possibility of 3 spaces for camping. If you’re interested in doing this, please let me know and I’ll see what I can do.

The spaces in the hut are full so you can either join the reserve list (you'll get a space if someone who is booked on drops out) or camp in the hut garden as in Lisa's post above. If camping, you can use the hut toilets/showers/kitchen/lounge but will need to bring your own tent etc for sleeping. For either option send a cheque payable to Leeds Mountaineering club for £20 (£10 per night) to Lisa (address in private section) and let her know which option you'd prefer. If you're on the reserve list and don't get a space, the cheque will be destroyed so you only pay if you attend.

Or alternatively there's another meet which will be taking bookings soon.
It's the Agnes Spencer hut meet in Patterdale in the Lakes, 8th/9th February.
The opening day for bookings is Tuesday 8th January, which coincides with the usual Tuesday night climbing and the Pub Meet afterwards in Leeds city centre.

Can I double check if the Will S on the list is me or did another Will beat me to it?

Ah no, Neil! That's rubbish :( Sorry you can't make it

As Neil can't attend ( :( ) there is now a spare space in the hut. There was no reserve list as I received the exact amount of cheques for the spaces available. So Becky or anyone else out there who feels like popping along now is your chance! Please bear in mind that if you want to attend this meet, you must have paid your membership fees for 2019 before the weekend of the meet.

First come, first served basis. Address details in the private section for sending cheques through. Any questions, let me know.

Lisa

In the off chance that winter does appear in time for that w/e - since I can't go on this trip - will anyone want to borrow my walking or mountaineering axes? My mountaineering crampons are only compatible with B2 or above boots.
Please let me know in good time so I can get them to you!

Two thoughts:

Transport: I'm very happy to car-share from Moortown and can leave any time from 5, though would probably want to wait until 6 for rush hour reasons...

Food: Are there any plans for a group meal? If not, can I propose that we consider the date and think about Burns night?
