WALKS: July to September and Trips Away


11th July 2024
By Douglas Wilson

Hello fellow walkers,

Thanks to those members who have volunteered to lead more walks for us. This is much appreciated. Please let me know if anyone else is interested in leading a walk.

Our upcoming walks on the calendar for the rest of July to September are as follows:

14th Jul: Boggy Creek and Peates Mountain 13km grade 3;

17th Jul: Wilson's Track Lismore 8km grade 3;

1st Aug: Cape Byron Lighthouse Circuit 6km grade 2;

14th Aug: Tyagarah Honey Farm 8km grade 2 fully booked with waitlist;

20th Aug: Wilson's Track Lismore 8km grade 3;

28th Aug: Yuraygir Coastal Walk - Angourie to Shelley Beach 15km grade 3;

14th Sep: Brindle Creek via Antarctic Beech Forest Border Ranges NP 10-12km grade 3;

21st Sep: Shaws Bay to Lennox 12km grade 3 fully booked with waitlist;

22nd Sep: Wilson's Track Lismore 8km grade 3.

Don't be put off by the fact that some are fully booked. People quite often change their minds for any number of reasons, so get your name on the waitlist (listed as a separate event) if you are interested.

If you are unable to attend an event, please cancel on the event. It's important to do this, especially if there's a waitlist, but also to alert the leader to the fact that you won't be attending. To cancel, if you're on the App, go to "Update", then click on the down arrow, and you will see there is an option "not attending". Select that, then "Update Registration". If you're using the website, it's similar. Find the Event, click "Update Registration", then down the bottom of the screen under Attending select "no" then "Register".
 

Quite often a Chat is set up to enable car-sharing or if the walk is cancelled due to wet weather, and/or accommodation. Access the chat either via the App or website. On the App, it's a dark green background with white speech bubbles. Click on that, and you will see a chat with the title of the relevant walk. On the website, it's under Resources>Member Chatrooms. Please check the chat before you leave on the morning of the walk.

Upcoming trips away are as follows:

29th Jul to 2nd Aug: New England and Dorrigo NPs grades 2-4 registrations close 18th July

20th Aug to 27th Aug: Gauja NP Latvia grade 3, one vacancy

2nd Sep to 16th Sep: Annual trip to Interlaken, vacancy for one female;

16th Sep to 30th Sep: Southern Carpathian Mountains Romania grades 3-4, fully booked with waitlist;

I'd like to remind all members that there is an obligation to make a contribution to the running of the club, ie, by volunteering either as a leader of an activity or on the committee. There are some first-time leaders who have taken the plunge and I cannot thank them enough. I know there are many more of you who are capable of leading, so please contact me if you can help to make this a stronger, more active club. 

Bushwalking NSW has introduced a Leadership Training Course which is free for our members. I'd encourage all members to do this course, especially those who are reticent about leading. This is the link 
 
 
Once logged in, you need to opt to 'Pay $999', then the course will prompt you for a code NRBWC, which will give you free access. Please note, there is a 5-minute course feedback form at the end of it. Feedback is needed to make any required changes.
 
Happy and safe walking until next time.

Cheers, Douglas Wilson, NRBC Walks Coordinator
