The next British Mountaineering Council (BMC) Peak Area Meeting will be on Wednesday 22nd November at the Maynard Arms in Grindleford. Food will be available from 6pm – 7pm, and the meeting will start at 6.30pm.
The rough schedule is:
6.30pm – a presentation / Q&A session about Stanage, with Sarah Fowler (Chief Executive of the Peak District National Park Authority) 7pm – AGM 7.30pm – ordinary meeting, including a presentation from the Organisational Review Group. This is important because the review was extended from covering just the legal structure of the BMC to what it should do and how it represents members. This reflects the poor handling of the proposed name change and the motion of no confidence in the BMC exec at the last BMC AGM. This should be an opportunity for you to comment on the review. 9.30pm – the annual quiz
Castle club members are automatically registered as BMC members. The Peak Area is the best attended of area meetings in the country and has lively well informed discussions. The quiz is good fun too. Geoff
