The committee, in its infinite wisdom, decided that it was time for yet another party; so the idea that all the main conversion work on the hut had been completed seemed a good excuse.
No-one on the committee was prepared to cook hence the biggest take-away ever from Petes Eats was organised. Past Hut Wardens and other notables were sent personal invitations and everyone else was welcome. The weather wasn't inspiring but several parties set off over Yr Aran on Saturday and some continued over Snowdon. Pete Johnson found the going much tougher than his local (southern) hills, but made it round eventually.
After our feast on Saturday night some members saw slides of the early work on the hut. It was amazing to see just how much our members had achieved and how fashions had changed. Working flares and big hairdos were IN.
A separate team of enthusiasts set off from the hut for secret trials of their Cloggy Buggies. Undercover of darkness several test runs were accomplished and further modifications planned. The evening ended with a traditional Wavey Disco in the lounge.
On Sunday a large group set off for a walk from Capel Curig into the forests and over to the Mynedd hut and back. The drizzle petered out to leave a reasonable day.
You may be aware that we are holding a Hut Completion Party on 20/21 September 2003. The aim is to thank those people who have contributed to the successful completion of Ty Powdwr as the best Club Hut in the UK!
All Club members are invited to attend, there will be a communal meal at 1900 on the Saturday. Price per head will be £5 for which you get a main course (meat and veggie options being organised) plus pudding and a starter glass of wine. Some of the fee will subsidise meals for the handful of invited guests (current and ex-Hut Officers without whose input Ty Powdwr would not be what it is now).
Please let me (Sheena Hendrie) know if you intend come ASAP so we can organise the catering.
