Important reminders and instructions for next week – please read carefully!

There are lots of trips coming and up forms needed back as well as instructions for next week’s program in the details below – please read carefully and let us have any questions if we don’t answer your them with the info.

2014 Ski Trip – last call for forms

If you are interested in going on the CAG 2014 Ski Trip we need to get your forms as soon as possible or we’ll lose the booking. A couple of people have asked to pay the deposit after the next pay day at the end of the month. If that helps members then it is fine to do that and either supply a post dated cheque with clear instructions not to bank it before a certain date or provide a cheque separately after pay day. In either case please make sure suitable information is provided about your intended payment method.

We need all forms to be sent to 43 Tilehouse Green Lane or to the meeting at Bickenhill by the evening of Tuesday February 12th AT THE LATEST.

If there are any members who would like to go but still have questions / queries please let us know.

Shropshire Half Term D of E Hike Trip – Open to all members

All D of E participants are expected to take part in this trip unless you have arrangements to be in another part of the world that day, such as family hols or ski trip. We need to get final numbers for this trip as soon as possible so we can book transport and food. We need all forms to be dropped off at 43 Tilehouse Green Lane by this Saturday morning.

Smalls Next Week

Next Tuesday the Smalls (all non D of E participants) will be at Ackers Ski Centre. We need everyone to be there by 7pm and they will be ready for a 9pm pickup. Getting to Ackers at that time of night takes more time than anticipated (judging by our previous experiences) so please make sure to allow plenty of time to get there. This is a Google Maps link to show you where the centre is.

Each member will need the following:

  • Gloves
  • Thick trouser
  • Warm thick jacket
  • A cheque for £10 made out to “Challenge Adventure Group” – not “CAG” please.

We have booked two instructors for the group which means that every member will get to learn to ski from scratch if they haven’t skied before or will get additional coaching if they have skied before – we haven’t got any world cup downhill champions so everyone will be able to get some additional tips to make them into budding Franz Klammers.

Bigs Next Week

We are finishing routes and preparing for the weekend trip on Tuesday. Every member, whether they are going on the trip or not, needs to bring the kit list as shown in the weekend trip documentation (link to document above) in a ruck sack. If a member needs to borrow equipment we can deal with that on the night and we will also check each members kit and issue team kit for the weekend.

Normal meeting times apply: please be at Bickenhill ready for a start at 7pm in CAG shirts – you will be asked to return home to get it if you don’t bring it!

That’s It

Let us know if you have any questions!
