[hillwalkers] Weekly Email: SMR Fundraiser and AGM

Good evening, Hillwalkers! I hope everyone had a great time out this weekend. We are overjoyed to see lots of photos of people out on the hill on Saturday for our Scottish Mountain Rescue fundraiser, many from nearby and some from abroad! And how wonderful it was to gather hillwalkers from past years together on the Alumni trip and walk as if not a day has gone by!

SMR Fundraiser Reminder

If you went up a hill on Saturday, or even if you didn't and would like to donate anyway, please make your donation as soon as possible. We hope to hit our £1000 target by this coming weekend and are already more than halfway there. Once you donate you will receive a link to a page where you can post your summit photo and a walk description to be considered for the prize categories.

Every pound that is donated will earn one raffle ticket towards three big prizes (a Rab down jacket, an Osprey 38L rucksack, and a voucher for Merrell Capras) as well as Keela discount vouchers (please be aware that if you donate anonymously you forfeit raffle tickets). Photo prizes are described on the JustGiving page.

Ceilidh and Free Wine

The EUHWC AGM is this SaturdayMarch 18th at 6:30pm in the St Giles' Parish Church in Marchmont. Read Becky's email on how the AGM works (how to run for positions, etc.) here.

Ceilidh+AGM: £5

Ceilidh alone: £7.

You get a discount on the ceilidh ticket for attending the AGM! You also get a bottomless glass of FREE WINE at the AGM (this will all be gone by the ceilidh), as well as free food. Register your interest on the Facebook event. Tickets will be on sale at the pub quiz tomorrow – just find Imogen or Rosie. It's going to be awesome!

Tomorrow: Pub Quiz!

There's nothing more fun than showing off your knowledge, especially when it has to do with topics like Munros and beards! Join us tomorrow at the Cellar Monkey in Marchmont at 7:30pm for the epic showdown. Top three teams win prizes!

This means our usual pub activities like gear return and money business will take place at the Cellar Monkey tomorrow, not the Southsider.

Misc:

Stickers

Awesome Random Bods Emma and Matt have secured us EUHWC stickers to slap on everything from your car to your laptop to your buddy's bum. They look amazing and are a great memento. Only £1 per sticker!

Logo Competition 

Would you like your artwork plastered on EUHWC clothing? Would you like your design to be EUHWC's new logo? We are running our Club Logo Change simultaneously with our usual clothing logo competition – we plan to upgrade both our website and logo over the summer to "keep up with the times". Create a simple design before March 16th, this Thursday, and send your entry to Jonathan. May contain Hamish but Hamish is not a requirement.

Quotemaster

Send Sion your funny quotes from the Alumni trip this weekend and any great photos! Also, if you have promised Sion a yearbook writeup for a trip, please complete it and send it to him asap. 

Gear

Please return gear tomorrow from the Glencoe trip (or any other past trip) sooner rather than later! Griffin is out of town but Daniel will be there to gladly take the gear back.

Tomorrow at the Pub (Cellar Monkey, NOT The Southsider):

AGM tickets are being sold for £5.

Stickers are being sold for £1 per pop.

Return gear.

See you at the Cellar Monkey tomorrow!

EUHWC President
