Great Langdale 20th Reunion – Friday 4th – Sunday 6th March 2005

Ben Lairig is twenty-one years old! To celebrate this we are inviting all current and ex members (especially committee members) to spend a weekend in the Lake District. We will still be staying at the National Trust Campsite in Great Langdale (GR 286 059) – the one near the Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel.

Reunion T-Shirts

We are in the process of ordering t-shirts to commemorate the weekend. T-shirts will cost between £10 and £15 (depending on the size of the order). They will be navy blue in colour with the walker logo on the front, and Ben Lairig on the back with the details of the weekend below. If you want a commemorative t-shirt then could you let us know your size as quickly as possible.
