Membership renewals happen around this time for many members.  We had expected automatic reminders to be sent out as subscriptions became due, but have hit a snag which we hope will be fixed soon.   In the meantime, you can log into your account to see when your next payment is due and renew online by going to the Shop.  Alternatively you can  pay by cheque – in which case you need to complete a Membership Application Form which you can download from the Forms page on the website.

In this newsletter, we have the next in the series of Safe Practice Guidelines, this time for kayaking.  In conjunction, a kayaking safety and rescue course is scheduled for 11 January 2018.

The Ramblers Club Christmas Party is approaching, registrations and payment must be made by Tuesday 5 December.  You can pay online or by cheque.  Click here for further details.   It’s always an enjoyable evening, there’s good food, lots of door prizes and an opportunity to catch up with other Ramblers and meet new friends. We look forward to seeing you there.

We wish you and your families a safe and happy time over the holiday period, and all the best in the New Year.
