Back in January, Jim Tod circulated a suggestion for a possible club trip to the western isles later this year. Jim has been researching the possibilities and has sent us the following update. If you are interested in going please contact Jim ASAP so he can make the booking.
Harris & Lewis Trip Update
The proposed dates for the trip are Saturday 2nd November 2019 until Friday 8th November 2019, arriving on Harris from Skye on Saturday 2nd about 8pm and leaving from Harris on Friday 8th about 4pm. I am just firming up but these are the most likely dates currently.
The hotels will require a deposit of 50% of the accommodation cost 3 months prior to arrival (i.e. end of July 2019). Since this is well before the start of the new season in September, we will need a deposit before the end of the current season this April. The 50% deposit for hotel accommodation would be £180 per person. Jim will hold the deposit money (or we can ask Steve to hold the money in the club account) deposit has to be paid. If circumstances change, it is possible to cancel the accommodation any time before the deposit is paid by letting Jim know, and the deposit will be returned. Jim can arrange bank details with those interested.
If anyone is interested in these dates can they please email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm interest ASAP as Jim is looking to provisionally book the hotel this week.
