Our first trip of the year is next weekend (2rd - 4th March) to the amazing location that is Paradise (yes, this is the actual name). If you want to come you must attend the pre-meeting on Tuesday 27th at 7PM in BURNS 2 LECTURE THEATRE. You must be a member of the club if you want to come on this trip. You can sign up at our meetings on Tuesday from 5-6, you cannot sign up at the premeet. The trip will cost $65 and you must bring this to the premeet as we take payment on the night so we can organise food etc. The pre-meeting will involve information explaining what equipment you will need for the weekend and what trips are available (there is a range of easy, medium and hard trips), as well as a discussion with your group leaders to what kind of food you want to cook for the contest on Saturday night.
