AC Reunion Meet at the George Starkey Hut, Patterdale, Lake District

This meet is open to all members, but is likely to be of greatest interest to members who have attended meets through the year. There will be the normal daytime climbing and walking activities and a communal meal on Saturday night.

Afterwards there will be an opportunity for brief presentations of photographs, from the year's meets, and a chance to plan for next year. Presentations should normally be limited to a maximum of 20 photographs. 

Other than the Saturday evening meal, you need to supply your own food.  This is always a very popular meet so early booking for hut accommodation is strongly advised.

Friday 21st September 2018 - Sunday 23rd September 2018
