COVID-19

At the moment we are trying to figure out a way to keep the group running in a safe, socially distanced way. Currently overnight trips are not an option and we will not be running our usual TCA nights. Free passes for members at GCC are also currently on hold.We are working hard to keep some events running however!

Just a few dates to look out for:

  1. Freshers Fayre- Monday 14th September (this event is ticketed so get a ticket before you come)
  2. Taster session- Friday 18th September (TBC and weather dependent, look out for confirmation on this)
  3. Zoom presentation and social- Wednesday 23rd September
  4. Freshers Day walks- 26th/27th September (TBC) All our events are currently limited to 30 people (with social distancing at all times) by Mountaineering Scotland so that will mean that events may fill up quickly. To hear more about our walks please tune in to a zoom social (Wed 23rd Sep) to hear about sign up (this will be done on a first come first served basis)

By registering for in person events run by GUMC you accept the following: • That your participation in an event run by Glasgow University Mountaineering Club may increase your risk of exposure to infection with the virus relative to not attending an event. Further, if someone was diagnosed with the virus and transmitted it during the event, you would isolate in accordance with the government guidelines.

This year Kieran Roscoe will be our COVID co-ordinator. Kieran and the committee are doing all we can to keep all our events running as safely as possible. The best way to keep informed is to keep an eye on the announcements Facebook page. You can also follow our instagram account - gumountaineer.
