    Hi Climbers!

    This year’s CAWA New Year’s trip will be to Albany as usual, and once again we will be staying at ‘Uncle Don’s’, about 20 km east of Albany. The date is from the evening of December 27th until the 2nd of January. Of course you are welcome to come and go at any time during this period. Climbing will be at Peak Head, West Cape Howe, Castle Rock, Gibraltar Rock, The Gap etc etc. There has been some mention of possibly doing The Ridge Walk in the Stirling Ranges.

    The coordinators for this trip will be Phillip Calais (0415 323 913) and Neil Humphries (0409 133 886). Email enquiries can be directed to cawa@climberswa.asn.au or phillip.c@gmx.net We will produce a loose trip plan and make some dinner bookings but it is ultimately up to the individual (and the weather) how they tailor their trip. NYE will most likely involve a BBQ and bonfire. Please RSVP by Monday 22nd December to enable coordination of transport and so that we have a rough idea of numbers.

    As we will be staying on private property, location details of the accommodation will only be given out to those who contact Phillip closer to the time to confirm that they are definitely coming. At Uncle Don’s, there is a hot shower, toilet, a shed with 240 V electricity, a fridge and stove, and lots of tractors and strange farming implements. You will need to bring your tent, sleeping bag and other camping gear.

    Please be advised that only CAWA members are covered by insurance(third party only, it’s not personal injury insurance). CAWA, as the organiser of the trip and provider of first aid and communication equipment and accommodation wants to encourage everyone to come along but asks that you become a member (if you aren’t already) and support the organisation that is making such an event possible. Other sporting organisations require you to be a member to take part in events, partly for reasons of insurance and partly because there is a lot of work and funding required to coordinate these types of activities. In theory, it’s one of the benefits of being a member.

    Looking forward to seeing you all there!

    Come along. There’s a shed out back. Lots of soft hay. Just don’t let those pesky angels sing all night.
