Walk report
The club walk on the 9th August, 2015 had a small turnout of 3 walkers in total. Since the weather was poor we did a four hour walk at a good pace taking in Seefin, Casey’s Road, Barnamadra Gap, and Carrigaline from the Mauma Road. We covered a distance of 16 k. approx. and the three of us were happy with a good work out at a strong pace.

Walk Classifications
The monthly schedule from September onwards will now include an A walk. I have asked some accomplished B walkers to up the calibre of their walks to make them a bit more challenging, so giving the opportunity for members to give them a go, indeed some of our B walks were already at an A standard so it is also a bit of a reclassification.
We shall also try and get an Easy B walk on the sheet once a month to give a greater variety of walks for members to try.
We would also like to see 4 away day walks a year, that is walking in a different mountain range / location, no further than a 2 hour drive away. These I would imagine to be on a Saturday or Thursday. Any volunteers or locations contact
Reenie Palmer is becoming the Thursday afternoon C style walk coordinator, any offers to lead walks should be directed to her on 087 122 4040. She is taking over from John Browne who has done a magnificent job for the past 5 years or more. Well done and thanks for your hard work.
The AGM is at 20:00 on 6th October at the Park hotel Dungarvan.
