MCSA PW Spring Snippets

Dear <<First Name>>

With Spring officially here - freezing weather, snow, flowers everywhere and more - we just wanted to share a few snippets of news with you as we head into warmer weather and new seasons.
Looking for something to do with your kids or with friends and family in the school hols (Oct school hols are back!)? Maybe you just need some time out or want to explore our mountains? There's still space at our MCSA Mini Camp happening 4-10 October. 
Book your spot online now.
We have some great merchandise available for the Mini Camp - check out our "PW mapped" MCSA buffs for just R90 as well as our MCSA Mini Camp 2021 shirts (R100) and branded hiking hats (R135). Order online here or click on the link at the end of this email. 
A BIG thank you to Brenda for managing the complete avalanche of bookings to get into Krom River area for families to see the recent snowfalls.
A gentle reminder to all members to PLEASE SECURE THE GATE when you go through and to respect the landowner's road and property - we don't want to jeopardise access to our special hut!
The latest UIAA newsletter is out with a round up of all that is happening on the international climbing scene, from safety to routes to expeditions. 
You can read the newsletter online here
Some Awards to take note of...
2020-2021 UIAA Mountain Protection Award
And we are excited about this one...
Nominee – Mountain Club of South Africa – UIAA
The Krom Hut is open for single family bookings (one single household bubble only), and the committee will re-evaluate hut bookings when restriction levels are updated. 
We urge all members to continue to protect each other through sanitising, social distancing and masking up. And of course, getting out and refreshing your souls as our mountains are covered with flowers and new greenery - and most probably some more snow!

Spring greetings, 

Riaan & the PW Committee
Chairman: MCSA Paarl/Wellington Section

"There’s joy in the mountains; 
There’s life in the fountains;
Small clouds are sailing,
Blue sky prevailing;
The rain is over and gone!”

 - William Wordsworth

(Um, we're not convinced the rain is over and gone quite yet!)
