CMAT's next weekend trip will be to the lovely town of Ilkley in Yorkshire's Wharfedale. This takes place from the 8th to the 9th of February 2020, with travel to the area on Friday 7th.

This event is open to Explorer Scouts and adult members who wish to extend their summer hillwalking experience to include possible wintery weather conditions and definitely short action-packed days on the mountainside.  There is also the possibility of a night hike with optional navigation practice.

Leaders who are planning to participate in the annual Hill Walking Permit assessment weekend in March are strongly advised to take part in this pre-assessment training weekend.  Note, however there are no plans to camp out so overnight camping equipment is not required.

The application form for the event is on the CMAT Activities Programme page.  Please apply either by post or by attachment to an e-mail with ALL data completed on the form.  Payment can be made by cheque or by BACS transfer.  The bank account details will be sent out once your place(s) on the event have been confirmed.

Participants are responsible for organising their own transport to/from Yorkshire.  However, closer to the event I will be circulating details of vehicles travelling to the venue so that lifts can be co-ordinated between interested parties.  The event fee does not cover these transport costs.
