We meet on the third Wednesday of each month, 7.30pm at: Room 16/17, Newstead College, 30 Cypress Street, Newstead, as shown to the left (select to enlarge view). Our trips also meet at Newstead College in the adjacent carpark as shown on the map below. Please check the Trips Calendar for relevant times and remember to arrive 10 minutes early at the carpark before the trip departs, so the bus can leave on time. Select the map icons for more information.
Meetings are an opportunity to keep up to date about what is happening within the club, see photos of recent trips, and chat to trip coordinators and other members over a cuppa and supper. Most club meetings feature a presentation or activity. These can include guest speakers, gear demonstrations, photo presentations of epic adventures undertaken by club members, or entries in our two annual photo competitions.
Prospective Member Information
People wishing to join the club are required to complete three suitable trips with the club as a prospective member before they can apply for membership. For most people, a 'suitable trip' means an easy to moderate day walk, or alternatively a cycling trip. It is suggested (but not essential) that prospective members come along to one of our Wednesday night meetings before their first trip. The Memberships Officer can suggest suitable upcoming trips, introduce you to the coordinators, and advise you about what equipment you will need.
If you can't make it to a meeting, please contact us via the website Contact Form. Alternatively, you can register as a prospective member by completing the Prospective Member/Visitor Registration and Subscription Form. After completing the three suitable trips as a prospective member, one of the the trip coordinators and another club member will sign your membership application form which can then be processed.
