It’s February, it’s Baltic and Storm Ciara is about to be followed by storm Dennis. There’s even some snow on the hills- now an Ancrum Member’s fancy turns to thoughts of the lovely sunny days of spring, and the May long weekend meet. This year the Ancrum long weekend trip is to Skye, to the Glen Brittle Memorial Hut for the weekend of 1st-4th May. The GBMH is an iconic hut, at the foot of the Cuillin, which is a great base for the Cuillin ridge and Skye. GBMH is a well-loved venue with upgraded creature comforts and facilities.
Cost of accommodation for this weekend is £15 pp/pn ie £45 for 3 nights, Petrol will likely be in the region of £30, this will be confirmed nearer the time. Due to the significant advance outlay required to pay for the hut we are holding an early sign up, and we are asking for early payment for the accommodation fees to cover this. We have 8 spaces and I will of course try to get more spaces should they become available.
To secure your place on the meet please email me, Karen by Friday 14th February and in order to confirm your place on the meet, we would ask you to send your accommodation payment of £45 to Tim Wilson, our Treasurer and Financial Wizz by Friday 21st February 2020.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Your ever optimistic Meets Secretary
