70th Anniversary AGM weekend.

This was held at the Hydro Hotel, Bowness-on-Windermere, 5 – 7 October this year with a full programme of activities over the weekend with 8 different walks on Saturday and Sunday, mountain biking, kayaking and paddle boarding.  There were also courses on outdoor first aid, GPS navigation, traditional navigation, scrambling and rock climbing.  There was a well-attended and lively AGM on Saturday afternoon with useful contributions from members.  As Allan Hartley wished to resign, Jacky Brown was appointed as the new President.  Tony Cooper and Diana Penny Sherpani were re-elected to the Board;  Alex Gymer, Michael Murray and Matt Nobles were re-elected to the Alpine Team, plus new member Damian Tow.

Langdale Pikes and Loughrigg Tarn, 70th Anniversary AGM weekend – Allan Hartley

Our guests of honour at the 70th anniversary dinner were ÖAV Vice-President Dr Wolfgang Schnabl and his wife Eva who both belong to Sektion Stockerau (near Vienna) which hosted the Hauptversammlung during late October.  As one of the six vice-presidents, Wolfgang was representing the Präsidium (the ÖAV’s most senior governing body).  They both enjoyed walking in the Lake District, even though it was rather wet underfoot!

The formal minutes of the 2018 AGM will not be available until approved at the 2019 AGM (2 November 2019).  A draft version will be available several weeks prior to that AGM.  This is consistent with the way that other companies operate.

However we expect a reasonably full report to appear in the Spring Newsletter.  The Winter Newsletter includes a brief mention, but because the 2018 AGM was held close to the copy deadline for that Newsletter issue, it was not possible to include a full report.
