It was with great trepidation
that Pat and I went about organising our first club event. A walk
up Ben Ledi at Callander!
After checking out the walk 4 weeks previously, and
sending out information, with help from our trusty chairperson Irene,
we arrived at the car park at foot of Ben Ledi to find that the grand
total of 18 people had turned up to join us for our walk! It was lovely
to see so many people including ones who had never walked with us before.
Ben Ledi although not a Munro is a fairly strenuous
walk, more or less straight up and straight down, but everyone seemed
to enjoy it especially as the weather was on our side and we had spectacular
views from the summit.
Afterwards everyone gathered at the Claymore pub in
Callander for a well earned drink and chat, (and football scores!) before
heading for home after another very successful club event!
Pat and I found it a lot easier than expected to organise
our walk and we are already talking about planning another! If we
can do it anyone can, and there are lots of people willing to give help
and advice. I hope this will encourage others to do the same and we look
forward to joining you.
Thanks to everyone who turned up and made it a great day!
