Further Queries

If you would like more information or have further queries about joining the club, please contact the Membership Secretary

Planning Guidelines & Cancellation Policy

Any member can organise a trip or event. However, if you want to ask the club to consider covering some financial outlay (say a hut booking) then you are expected to have planned far enough in advance to place your item on the next committee meeting agenda (approximately every 3 months).

Try to judge enthusiasm and know how much the trip will cost. Possible venue suggestions:
Camping.
Cwm Glas Mawr hut in LLanberis Pass (£40 per night, sleeps 11 and requires 1 CC member).
Moelwyn Cottage at PyB (£236 per night sleeps 16).

What you bring to the committee would benefit from detail; numbers of people interested, costs, possible dates, how much you want to have underwritten and when any loan would be paid back.

Advertise: Use the website forum. Ask the Chair or Secretary to e-mail the membership with information about the event, asking for expressions of interest.
A minimum of 50% deposit must be asked for and the rest of the money 1 month before the trip.

To establish a buffer fund where the club has underwritten costs, an extra £1 per person should be charged and the monies given to the club treasurer.

Everyone going on a club trip must be a fully paid up member. Check with the membership secretary or the latest Clwydian to confirm the membership status of those interested. Members can bring guests to events such as the annual BBQ, AGM, club dinners and winter slide shows.

CMC Trips and Events Cancellation Policy

The following policy applies to members who, having paid their deposit for club trips, then want to cancel. Under those circumstances members will be required to pay their full share of the trip. The reason being that, if they didn’t, their cancellation would result in those remaining, or the club, incurring increased costs.

Those booking themselves on club events such as the annual BBQ, coaching weekends, and club dinners etc. should pay as soon as possible and will be expected to pay the full cost on cancellation.

Anyone who cancels from a trip or event is, of course, free to recruit another member to go in their place and recoup the monies from them perhaps by advertising or selling their place on the club website forum. 

Annual Dinner

The Clwyd Mountaineering Club holds a combined Annual General Meeting and annual dinner which in recent years has enjoyed the excellent food and facilities of the National Mountain Centre at Plas y Brenin, Capel Curig. It also includes an audio visual presentation by a celeb speaker and is normally held in February.

Details of the 2014 annual dinner / AGM have been added to the club calendar.

Club History

Clwyd Mountaineering Club began its life as Denbighshire Mountaineering Club in 1969. The Club was formed by a small, active group of climbers of generally average ability, who wanted to establish a circle of friends with whom they could climb or walk in the hills regularly. In 1975, with the change of the County name, the Club became Clwyd Mountaineering Club. From these modest beginnings, the Club has grown and developed.

The club membership is typically between 100 and 200 members with climbing at standards ranging from V.Diff to E4. There are experienced mountaineers with up to 40 years of knowledge to call on, grade IV winter climbers, as well as more modest performers. Members tend to be multi-disciplinary and many forms of mountain activity are pursued from mountaineering and scrambling to ice and rock climbing at all grades. The relatively small membership and breadth of activity ensures that we remain a vibrant and friendly club.

This framework generates discussion and encouragement, an integral part of a climber’s life. We have a membership of a variety of ages and abilities. We are one of the few local clubs to welcome novices, and we run regular training events.

In recent years some members have been heavily involved in new routing, crag development and guide book work. These have focused on local crags along the A55 corridor, particularly Penmaen Head, Llanddulas Cave and Castle Inn.

Clwyd MC is active with the BMC, via the Committee for Wales, and is also affiliated to the Snowdonia National Park Society. We help and advise on local access problems, and helping larger organisations with campaigning on many subjects, mainly related to mountain conservation.

It is Club policy to encourage and promote safe mountaineering (insofar as this is possible). Prospective Members should realise that there are risks in mountain sports, and you will be asked to sign a waiver accordingly when you complete your Membership Application Form. The Club cannot accept liability for any accident, however caused.

Constitution

The clubs constitution is a vital part of how our club works.
