10 - 12 November
Annual Dinner Weekend – Cairn Hotel, Harrogate The President
It’s Annual Dinner time again. This year we will be based at the Cairn Hotel in
Harrogate. I recently visited Harrogate for the first time and it’s a beautiful,
interesting town with easy access to the Dales. This, year in addition to the usual
dinner walks, we aim to make it a true multi-activity weekend and plan to have
climbing, cycling and running meets over the weekend. If none of these takes your
fancy, then don’t worry there are plenty of other attractions in Harrogate to while
away the day before the main event.
In a change from recent years, the Club has had to take a block booking of rooms
in order to secure the best prices. This should help address some of the difficulties
people have had in previous years securing a room but it also means we need to start
earlier to ensure any unused rooms can be released back to the hotel. It is also a lot
of extra work for me, so early booking will be very much appreciated.
We have managed to secure 40 classic rooms (20 double/ 20 twin) at a Bed &
Breakfast rate of £42 per person per night (based on two sharing) and an additional 20
superior rooms (10 double/ 10 twin) and at extra £25 per night (£12.5pppn). For
Friday night we have also negotiated a Dinner, Bed and Breakfast rate of £52
pppn. This includes a three-course carvery style dinner. All rooms can be taken on a
single person basis with a £35 per night supplement. I realise the above may not be
that clear so I have included some examples in the booking form below.
Further dinner details will be published on the website and in Meetstaff in due
Don’t delay - book now. A booking form is included at the end of Meetstaff.
