We have just sent out our latest newsletter with information about our new web site,. There is news about the Overground Underground Ingleborough Dales Festival where we are offering discounts, The Dales Discoveries Treasure Hunt which we are helping to sponsor and have given a prize to and the new Settle-Carlisle web site which we are on too . Have a look and if you would like to receive a newsletter of your own you can sign up here. We do not send out many and you can opt out at anytime. Don’t forget we have caving this Monday (25th May) too.
For the 5th year we are involved in this brilliant festival which is a “weekend of diverse activities that will bring the unique landscape of the Ingleborough Dales to life in inspiring and unexpected ways”. The Festival runs over the weekend 19th – 21st June. We will be running two opportunities to try caving for anyone eight and over who is reasonably fit and able to bend a bit. The trips are designed to introduce people to the wonders of the underground dales. These will be on the Saturday and Sunday starting at 5.00 pm and finishing by 8.00 pm. For more information and to book visit our Eventbrite page or give us a call.
We will also be running a “Developing Your Compass Skills” day on the Saturday which is for people who know the basics of map work but have either never used a compass or are a bit rusty. On Sunday we will be running an “On Track – Getting Started with Navigation ” day which is designed for people who are real beginners. Both these days run from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm. They are suitable for anyone 14 and over. More details on all our activities can be on our web site www.YorkshireDalesGuides.co.uk . If you visit the festival site at www.ogug.co.uk you might just find a code for some discount and all of our events over this weekend.
There are lots more events over the weekend of the Festival including Art Exhibitions, Free Airbay Jump Day, Indoor Bouldering Competition, Films, Talks, Archaeology, Running, Wildflower walks, Mountain Rescue Search Dogs Demonstration and Water Zorbing. A real action packed weekend with something for everyone.
