Non-members are very welcome to attend events as guests. Just contact the event organiser and let them know. All we ask is that if you wish to join us on future events, please apply for membership within 3 months of your first event as this ensures you will continue to be covered for 3rd party liability.

Future events for your diary
As usual we will be holding Christmas walks one in the south probably on Saturday 7th December and one in the north probably on Saturday 14th December. These are more relaxed days out, generally involving shared food and are a good opportunity to invite friends along. Come on one – or both if you want to!
New Year – location and dates still to be arranged (but probably New Year! – ed.).
Any ideas for future events? Places to go; places to stay? Or is there somewhere you’d really like to visit but have never got round to it? If you fancy a Saturday local day walk or climb, why not offer it to the club? We are on the lookout for members who would be willing to organise such events. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Booking on Events
If you plan to come on an event, please book early to avoid disappointment (event is full, or cancelled due to lack of early interest). Your place on an event, where the Club arranges accommodation, is only firmly booked on payment of the full amount due. Camping events are generally more flexible, although sometimes we book camping space in advance. Again, speak to the event organiser to find out whether you will need to make a booking. Once the event leader has confirmed a place is available for you, it will be held for 7 days pending payment. Please forward a cheque made payable to the “Christian Rock and Mountain Club” to the event leader. If you would like to share transport to the event, let them know and they will try their best to put you in contact with somebody who is travelling from roughly the same direction. Please note that cheques will be banked before the event as this assists with the Club’s cash flow.
