Join The Grampian Club

 

Day Meet Corrie Fee

A Warm Welcome Awaits you in the Grampian Club ..

Are you interested in taking part in mountain based activities?  Then with an annual program of organised events  that includes frequent Day Meets, Weekend Meets and Indoor Meets we are the Club for you.  Our Day Meets include coach transport with organised groups and there are almost always places available.  Our winter meets try and include a winter skills practice group.  Our Weekend Meets explore more distant ranges and are typically based in hostel accommodation. Our Indoor Meets are organised in Dundee and we welcome a wide range of guest speakers with presentations from around the world. 

 Day Meet Coach

 

You do not need to make a big commitment straight away as non-members can attend up to two of our meets before joining the Club. In fact, we invite you to join us as a day meet guest walking in one of the organised groups for FREE.  The number of free places on each meet is limited and any extras, such as the group meal in winter, must be paid for, but the cost of the FIRST coach is free.

  

 

The Grampian Club meets, particularly the Day meets, are organised based on people walking as a group. As a mitigation to limit liability, such groups do not have a leader, instead there is a designated organiser whose responsibilities are primarily 'administrative'. All members of the group are expected to be self-reliant and suitably equipped and everyone will be encouraged to be involved with navigation and route choice. However, a responsibility of the organiser is to get the whole group back to the coach on time and this may require alternatives to be considered, for example, when someone is struggling. A very important aspect of self-reliance is having an awareness of your own abilities and to know when, for whatever reason, the planned route is going to be too much for you. It is always better for this decision to be made early as this will increase the number of options and minimise the number of mishaps. In such a situation, self-reliance is having the ability to get off of the mountain safely and with the least impact on other people. The person primarily responsible for your safety is you and when you do have an off day then you should try to avoid this spoiling the day for others.

In order for the Meet Secretary to place new guests in a group that is appropriate for their ability and experience they are required to complete the following self-assessment:
