Members are responsible for ensuring that their guests are acquainted with the terrain, healthy and capable of a full day’s hike.
A leader may decline to take a member or guest if he/she is of the opinion that the person is inadequately equipped, unfit or the terrain is too demanding.
“The club walk organisers are not qualified guides. You join them at your own risk and of your own free will. You are part of an autonomous group, responsible for your own safety and happy to accept the discretion and actions of any or all the participants on that organised walk or activity in the event of injury to you, the need to have you rescued or otherwise.”
Note: “Registered Assistance Dogs Only” are allowed on club walks. Dogs (on a lead) may be taken on mid month walks by prior agreement of the walk leader.
