Rotary Sponsored Hill Walk – Sunday 2 June 2013
In aid of Local Organisations
INFORMATION FOR THOSE TAKING PART
The Rotary Club of Alloa has organised sponsored Hill Walks in The Ochil Hills for some thirty years and, based on this experience, provide the following information for the benefit of those taking part.
PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE GOLF CLUB CAR PARK. Parking is limited, and you should consider this when making plans for arrival and pick up.
WALK AND THE ROUTE
The walk is from the public car park close to Alva Golf Club to the top of Ben Cleuch, a height of some 2,400 feet and a total round trip of about 10 km; for much of the route you will follow a path or track. The entire route will be risk assessed.
To comply with HMRC regulations, monies pledged require to be accounted for by The Rotary Club of Alloa and once this is done, all monies, minus the gift aid portion, will be returned to your organisation.
START AND FINISH TIMES
Walkers can set of any time between 8.30am and 11.00am. No walkers will be allowed to start after 11.00am.
Walkers are asked to check in at the Alva Glen car park where they should hand in their sponsor sheet(s). Each walker will be given a hill top check card which will be verified by the stewards at the top of Ben Cleuch. Sponsor sheets will be returned to the walkers when they return their hill top card to the check in.
The walk will be stewarded throughout to ensure no one gets lost or strays from the route. The Ochil Hills Mountain Rescue Team, although not directly involved, will be in the vicinity. Ample mobile communications will ensure speedy response in the event of anyone requiring assistance.
Any young person under 16 years of age MUST be supervised and accompanied by responsible adults AT ALL TIMES. They will not be allowed on the hill otherwise.
Free refreshments in the form of water, tea or coffee and snacks will be available at the sheep pen.
AFTER THE WALK
After the walk, BBQ refreshments will be available in the Alva Glen Car Park. You may wish to give a donation for your burger. This will be a great opportunity to relax and reminisce about the days events.
IF THE WEATHER IS POOR
In the event of adverse weather conditions the organisers will make the decision as to whether the sponsored walk will take place or not. Their decision will be final.
EXPERIENCE TELLS US
You are responsible for ensuring that you and your walkers wear suitable footwear and warm clothing. Remember, although it may be a warm day, it can still be quite chilly at the top of Ben Cleuch.
When you have collected in all your pledged sponsor money, your completed sponsor sheet(s), with gift aid column completed, where appropriate, and all monies pledged, should be handed in on the day at the check in desk or returned in their entirety to Hector Nicolson, Rotary Club of Alloa at the undernoted address as soon as possible and in any event, by Sunday 16 June, 2013. .
Remember, all monies pledged, minus gift aid portion, will be returned to benefit your charity or organisation.
Early notification would be appreciated
