Meet Promo:

Christmas is on the way and so is the annual KMC christmas bash, full of delicious home-made food, outdoor adventures and fun.  

Please come and join us, whether you're new to the club or an old hand.  This year, I'd love to get some live music going in the hut, so if you play an instrument or have a good singing voice, you're particularly welcomed and will receive extra mulled wine/cake for your efforts.

Climbing/ Walking:  

We need someone to lead this aspect of the meet, or we can leave it until closer to the time and decide based on the weather forecast and attendees.  Email me if you want to make a plan. 


As always, this meet isn't possible without extra hands so if you fancy helping out cutting some vegetables or setting the table, then your help will be appreciated.  

Book a Place:

This is an advance booking meet. If you want to be part of this awesome and sociable meet, first 'Add Me' on the meet, then email me your meal preferences before 3rd December.  Payment will be in advance and remaining monies will be returned or you can donate to MRT.  I'll price it up closer to the time and we can sort out bank transfers or cash at the AGM, if that's easier for people.  

Hope you can make it.
