*****SKYE AND REIFF*****

We still have minibus spaces available for both of the best trips in the GUMC calendar. Three seats are still available for Skye and seven(!) are available for Reiff.

If you'd like one of these spots please contact Ellie and she'll be very happy to oblige.

Duncan.

The Alps. Our annual trip to the alps is happening from 3rd to 17th of July. But you may have some burning questions such as “Where are we actually going?”, “How do we get there?”, “Will there be club gear?”, “Chicken Nuggets?”

== Where we are going? ==
VAL DI MELLO. More specifically we will be staying at Ground Jack campsite (groudjack.it). No need to book it in advance. The campsite guy is offering us €10 a night per person all inclusive. Which depending on the tents size/number of people in it is a saving of €6 a night.

== What is there to do? ==
Tom wrote a document two years ago while procrastinating with his dissertation. He would encourage anybody with very little time on their hands to update it.

== How do I get there? ==
UPDATE: We have decided to give up on the bus to allow people to buy flights whilst they are still reasonably priced.

All travel to the alps is organised individually. You can either fly, train, drive or walk - it’s up to you! It’s pretty easy to travel from Milan to the campsite. With a train getting you most of the way there then a bus taking you up the valley. This should be super helpful in your planning:

== What should I bring? ==
It really depends on what you are wanting to do. There is a page on the website describing many things that you could bring (gumclub.co.uk/gear/alpine-climbing/) but if you are really unsure ask someone in the committee. The guide book which covers the sport in the area is creatively called “Val Di Mello” and is available in either Italian or German!

The club gear will not be in the Alps. If you wish to borrow anything get in contact with Ruadhan soon.

== Insurance ==
I hear helicopters are expensive. So get some insurance. See aacuk.org.uk/membership/ or www.thebmc.co.uk/modules/insurance/. Your choice basically depends on whether or not you want to insure your transport and stuff. I believe that you need your Mountaineering Scotland number for BMC insurance so if you want this please get in contact with Iain or myself (David).

== Chicken Nuggets? ==
I don’t know. But there has been talk of a chip pizza which sounds like more carbs than anyone could possibly dream for.
