CLIMBING WALL

Scheduled opening of the climbing wall will commence on Thursday 04th Oct. 2018. MI insurance necessary. €5.00 per night or €50.00 for the season. Open Tuesday and Thursday from 7pm to 9pm.


CLUB AGM / MEMBERSHIP

Club membership falls due at the AGM which will be held in Kate Kearney's on 14th Oct. at 4pm following the Club walk on that day. At present the fee is €40.00. A Stamped Addressed Envelope is required with the fee so that cards can be sent directly to members. Day membership (MI insured only) is €5.00.


NAVIGATION DAY

This exercise is designed to introduce members to basic navigation skills in the mountain environment. Attendees will need a compass (preferably Silva Type 4) and a sheet 78 map. All members are encouraged to attend. It is important to indicate your interest early as the event won't happen if the interest is low.


NON-MEMBERS / MEMBERSHIP FORMS

Walks are for KMC members, however if you are thinking of joining us and would like to come for a trial walk please let us know via email (kymc@eircom.net) or message us through our Facebook page. Membership is €40.00 for the year, 01st Nov. to 31st Oct. Membership forms can be found on our web page.


CHRISTMAS PARTY

This year's Xmas party will be held on Saturday 8th Dec. In Killarney. Details to follow.


THE CALENDAR

The Killarney cinema is no longer the meeting place for walks. An Email/What's App message will be sent to members on the Friday preceding a walk giving the GR of the meeting place and the leader's telephone number. Please note that the walks are subject to change and maybe postponed depending on weather etc. The Club Facebook page will be updated.


CAR POOLING

As car parking is proving problematic in some of the areas we visit we are suggesting that leaders find suitable car parking in the general area and car pool to the start of the walk. We are asking participants to co-operate with leaders on this matter.
