Kevin will join you. I've got other commitments have sent you a PM (or 2 or 3!)
and thanks Kevin. I have pm'd you.
ps , as in the pm Kevin and to other interested parties, do we see this as a very early start in the dark, or an evening ascent with a bivvy??
What Fell are you planning on doing Ray
Look me up on www.artbyraybradshaw.com I like to paint people enjoying the outdoors in and around the English Countryside. Mainly the Lakes and the Dales. More recently the urban scene is included. I would like to think that if AW was alive today, if he didn't appreciate my talent, he would at least get my humour.
I've said we will fit in where ever, but asked if there is a chance a Fell near to Keswick would be good as I will probably stay in my caravan the night before and the N W Fells are relatively easy to drive to. I've sent an email but not had a reply yet,
I have been contacted by the organiser Ian by email and he has sent me the spreadsheet of the fells which was filling up very quickly! I have requested Latrigg as this is one of the easier fells and I hope this may encourage more members to join us. The event will have a get together on the Saturday night but I don't know where in The Lakes this will be yet. PC Heather Cooper died tragically last year and has left behind two very young daughters. There is a collection in hand with the daughters as the beneficiaries. I will being asking The Committee to make a donation but others may wish to help as well, in which case it maybe best to send monies to The Society so that all donations can be given as one amount. I will ask that this is sorted ASAP as the event is not far away,
Looking at the logistics of the day, we must make sure we are in situ and ready just prior to 5am so it maybe prudent to meet in the Gale Road car park about 4am so we can sort ourselves out and then wander along to the summit with hot flasks etc in tow.
Frank, Rob, Kevin, Lesley....we have to take our own light so if anyone has a very powerful torch or lantern please let me know. I would think the lantern type would be better as it would be seen from every angle.
Should we retire for a hearty breakfast afterwards or find a walk to do in that area?
