Will  You  Organise  a  Club  Meet?

Updated meets list. Please contact Tom or Emma if you would like to come, or can help coordinate any of the meets (in particular we are looking for someone to do an Easegill trip on 2nd June as we will probably be away). A lot of the trips are weather dependent so may change if the forecast is too wet. Any additions to the list are always welcome.
