The Clachaig Winter Safety Lecture Series

As soon as we say goodbye to summer, we find ourselves in the midst of planning for winter, not least of which is FebruaryFest and the Clachaig Winter Safety Lecture Series.

At this stage, in early October, some of the detail is confirmed, and some we're still fine tuning. One staple of the winter scene in February is the Winter Mountain Safety Lectures. Originally set up as a collaboration between Peter Daynes and Andy Fanshawe, the then National Officer of the BMC, the lectures have been running for the last 25 years. In more recent years the series has been co-ordinated by the Mountaineering Council of Scotland under their mountain safety initiative.

However, we faltered a little this year as the dreaded 'austerity measures' looked like we might be struggling to present a full line up.

The good news is that a sponsor for the 2013 has been secured, and the lectures will be back with a vengeance for this coming winter. So, once again, in proud association with the Mountaineering Council of Scotland, and our new sponsor, Mammut, we look forward to another season of educating and informative lectures, delivered free of charge to anyone who would care to come along.

Final details by the beginning of November but the dates will be

Tuesday 5th February

Tuesday 26th February
