So how do you become a member?

To become a member is super easy. You need to hike with the club on one occasion before applying for membership, this is so that we can see if you are fit enough to hike with us and for you to get a taste and see if hiking is for you.

You simply go to the meeting place designated in the program, (you do not need to book or telephone) ask the leader of the day for an application form, or download the application form to the right.

When the hike is completed, ask the hike leader to sign the form, and then have the form signed by a member of the executive committee. (Ask for help if you have not met one.)

You then sign the indemnity, send the form to the club administrator, and pay the required fees.
