“At a meeting of mountain lovers held at Richmond Lodge on 15th November 1931 a club was formed to be known as the Moray Mountaineering Club…” This is the first line from the hand-written minutes of the inaugural meeting of the club, the original of which is in the club’s archives, with a copy available online. On 15 November 2021 the Moray Mountaineering Club will be NINETY YEARS OLD. To celebrate, the committee is organising a dinner at the Sunninghill Hotel in Elgin.
The 90th Anniversary dinner will be preceded by the club’s 85th Annual General Meeting. Details of the AGM will be issued by the Honorary Secretary in due course. Needless to say YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU. A number of committee members will be standing down and so the club needs your help. Any member can stand for election for any post, but in particular we have vacancies for Honorary Treasurer, Honorary Secretary and President. If you want to know more about what these positions involve please contact the current committee member. You do not need to have any particular qualifications or experience to be on the committee; just enthusiasm and a willingness to put something back into the club. We are also interested in hearing from members that are willing to contribute on a less formal basis, such as arranging specific events. Here is a link to the current committee and the constitution.
Contact Alistair Jeffs (Honorary Secretary) to book your place and/or if you have any questions.
