Do you want to go on an expedition but aren't sure how to go about it? Are you an expeditioner looking to extend your knowledge? The BMC's International Committee is hosting a day-long seminar for those wanting to learn about the practicalities of planning and taking part in expeditions to the Greater Ranges.
The first part will be a series of workshops:
Where to go
How to organise trips
How to source grants and sponsorship
How to stay healthy
How to deal with altitude and acclimatisation
How to use IT and Google Earth
The second part of the day will be a series of lectures by people who have recently been on trips and expeditions of interest – including Nick Bullock’s lecture at 7.45pm that is guaranteed to be both awe inspiring and a just little bit scary.
B&B accommodation is available, for those who want it, at Plas y Brenin for £32.50 per night. There is also ample camping and other accommodation nearby.
