Tramping Program
September October 2018

TO GO TRAMPING: you must ring the leader before 7:00pm the previous night. Also check the meeting place as this varies. Trampers should bring lunch, enough food and drink to last all day, sun hat, sun block and clothing for all weather conditions. A raincoat and warm hat are essential. Have a change of clothing and footwear, and a plastic bag for wet/muddy boots in the car.

LOCATOR BEACONS If leaders want a beacon for their trip, contact Garry Roberts (ph 3497875). Anyone wanting to use the beacon for private trips, when not being used on club trips, will not be charged for their use, but it should be returned in the condition it was lent. If the beacon is set off or otherwise lost or damaged then the borrower is to bear the cost of replacement. We will take two beacons for all Wednesday tramps so that if we split into two groups each will have a beacon. Please ask for one before separating.

SUNDAY TRAMPS – When Avon TC has no Sunday tramp, you can always join up with Hagley Tramping Club with whom we have reciprocal arrangements. Please check their website for details of the Hagley programme –
