Just to add that whatever challenge it is, needs to be completed before the Annual dinner, as I will have to organise the certificates to be presented at the Dinner.

My 50/50 challenges will be tame in comparison to most of you guys,

50 outdoor/adventures films/lectures (already clocked up 8 films/3 lectures)

50 rock climbs (start on the Wednesday evening meets)(

50 mountains climbed (4 already done)

I would still love to achieve the thought of club members simultaneously climbing 50 Lakeland peaks at the same time.

I think there's two types of 50 something challenges here
a) individual challenges e.g. those that Ken has already started for himself
b) group challenges; e.g. 50 LMCers on 50 peaks at once

I propose that we can use the LMC BB to manage them both...

a) individual challenges
By creating a place for people to register/declare their intent, post updates on their progress and eventually trumpet their success.
No prizes here but Ken's certificates sound like a fab idea.

b) group challenges
A thread per challenge will focus people's efforts and let us coordinate dates/times/suggestions.
Some challenges could be coordinated with a meet - maybe use a camping meet in the Lakes for the 50 LMCers on 50 peaks at once?

How are you planning to do the certs Ken - do you need some basic info like who, when and what the 50 something was...

We've all managed to miss another significant 50th birthday this year - the Pennine Way!

http://www.grough.co.uk/magazine/2015/0 ... nniversary

Any club members walking it this year?

I like the 1965-vintage routes idea, but bear in mind just how hard a lot of these will be!

what about 50 photos of Kev in provocative poses, I believe Vicky already has 12 suitably tasteful suggestions

It could be like 50 shades of Kev :wink:

Handcuffs? Good suggestion.

We can incorporate that into tastefully arranged pose No.13.


Kev, you clearly remember nothing about New Year's Eve... :roll:

I do have a vague recollection of something along those lines. My lack of memory is nothing to do with alcohol though - I chose to bleach my brain afterwards.
