Super Moon Evening Walk - Scout Scar

Mick & Clare, Kevin & Tina, Graham & Irene, Val & Colin, David, Frank, Roger, Josh, Jenny, Hugh (with Sally)

Fourteen members enjoyed a lovely walk along Scout Scar lit by a lovely bright full moon. Known as a 'Super Moon', the phenomenon occurs when the moon is at its closest point to the earth on its elliptical orbit and is also a full moon. It appears about 7% larger and 15% brighter than normal. The evening was rounded off with a drinks in the Rifleman's that including mulled wine.

The photo below was taken by Kevin and shows the group at the 'Mushroom'.

As in the previous three years the poor forecast was realised as 26 members 'enjoyed' a wet walk up Arnside Knott followed by lunch at the pub.

The walk proved to be wet and windy.

Here is one "Fellfarer enjoying a day at the seaside".

Lunch was taken in the upstairs room at the Wheatsheaf at Beetham, with a variable quality and quantity in the food, with one member having as many as seven chips. John Peat joined the group at the pub, making it two ex-Presidents (John and Gordon) and one current President (Roger).

All Terrain Toboggan Race

The annual All Terrain Toboggan Race took place this year after a bit of a lapse, perhaps giving the competitors time to work on new toboggan designs. Celebrations were held in the Scafell bar after the event. Thanks to Joan for the great photos.

The winners were Mark and Jess.
