Mount Cook Adventure Centre, View – MCAV

This was held in Derbyshire on 1st – 3rd November 2019, at Mount Cook Adventure Centre near Matlock. The Centre proved to be great spot for outdoor sports, and a welcoming venue for 150 people to gather and socialise, with room for 130 at the dinner and over 100 sleeping in bunk rooms and ‘pods’. As well as an EGM, the AGM and Dinner, there were seven organised walks, rock climbing, mountain biking, scrambling and caving groups, and courses on first aid, navigation, using transceivers, and a presentation and training on using the new app alpenvereinaktiv.com  We could walk from the door of the centre, and the weather was pretty kind.

Guests of honour for the weekend were Bart Vercruyssen from the Flanders section, and Georg Rothwangl, the ÖAV’s expert in developing electronic resources, and promoter of the new app.
