    We've got a Social Meet organised, and it's now not far away on the calander: the 7-10th of January. It does what it says on the tin - no excuse needed for a big, social weekend, but if you need one then we've got some 'clinics' laid on - winter navigation, understanding snow, how to use axe & crampons, that kind of thing. It's a non profit making thing, so the cost for 3 nights is just £62 at one of the very (currently!) alpine lodges at Badaguish, near Glenmore & only minutes from the Cairngorm road end. Bring your skis, bring your pals, bring your warmest boots & some bottles of wine.

    For more info please contact me on 07720 706732 / info@chicks-unleashed.co.uk, or visit our Meets page at http://www.chicks-unleashed.co.uk/02meets.html.

    Hope to see you soon, Rosie

    Are there likely to be any cross country skiers, either track or touring?

    So far people haven't committed to what they're doing Roos. I think the plan for those heading by car seems to be 'fill it with kit' and see what the forecast brings. I'd certainly place bets on it being amazing for something mountainy! And I'll certainly be bringing my skis. Have you been out in the powder yet?

    It's a group who organise outdoors activities for women who don't want to be bugged by moronic blokes.

    I was going to edit this, but my feminine side stopped me.

    If there was a meet announced as "just for men - women not welcome" wouldn't you be the first to complain Kate?

    Frum, this is a group of women who prefer to undertake outdoors activities by themselves; they have their own website and organise their own meets. It's not Outdoors Magic. If there was a 'men only' meet on OM of course I'd probably complain, but I'm not going to criticise other groups for their preferences, which appear to be entirely understandable given the responses of some of the people on here.

    I might well be inclined to advertise a meet for 'sensible people only, no morons'.
