Area hill walking reps Peter Judd and Austin Knott report on the latest hill walking activities, including the launch of the crowdfunding campaign for Mend Our Mountains: Make One Million, and the BMC Hill Walking Symposium, taking place in late November.
Newly elected BMC president Lynn Robinson provides an update on the work of the Board of Directors and the organisational review implementation group, as well as her own busy schedule, since the June AGM;
Peter Judd writes about his experience of being a ‘dogsbody’, a volunteer victim waiting to be found by a search and rescue dog during its training; and

Peak Area Meeting: 21 November
The next Peak Area Meeting will be on Wednesday 21 November 2018, starting at 7.30pm, at The Maynard, Main Road, Grindleford, S32 2HE
Area meetings are run by volunteers and provide an opportunity for you to discuss issues and influence decisions affecting climbers and walkers locally and nationally.
Area AGM and Annual Quiz
The November meeting is also the area AGM and will include elections for various volunteer roles; and it just wouldn’t be the end of year meeting without the annual quiz. Rumour has it that this year’s quiz will include a general knowledge round, so brush up on your soap operas!
All are welcome.
See the BMC Local Areas site for more details about the meeting
DOWNLOAD: the shiny new BMC RAD app
Get all the info on crags with the newly updated RAD (Regional Access Database) app from the BMC! Available now for Android and iOS, it's free and comes with a host of new features like navigation and parking, weather and tidal updates, and of course information on restrictions or notes on access advice. Get it here now!
RAD is community led and your comments help keep it up to date so don’t be afraid to add any relevant information after a crag visit which might be useful for other visitors – anything from conditions on the crag, favourite routes or reports of rockfall/other recent changes to the crag are all useful for other climbers visiting.
