This year is already well and truly marching on - I don't know if it's just me, but the older I seem to get the quicker the years go by? Anyway, we will soon be out in the countryside again enjoying quizwalking, which I am very much looking forward to, as I am sure you are as well.
I would like to thank all members new and old for their support last year; we managed to achieve good attendances, Peter Evans's walk was the highest with 52 people attending.
Also I would like to thank all walk organisers for their efforts last year; we enjoyed some fantastic walks from some great venues. I am sure this year will be equally as good.
After some discussion at the AGM it was decided to set up a Quizwalk group on Facebook, which would be open to the public. The aim of this is to promote the club and allow people to post pictures from walks etc. Also there will be a link to our website and vice versa.
Also there was some discussion at the AGM about how comfortable members would feel with asking people they meet on a Quizwalk for their email address. As not everybody would be comfortable it was decided to produce a Quizwalk "business card" to hand out; hopefully these will be available by the start of the season.
We have a stonking schedule lined up for 2014 kicking off traditionally with our Andi'Cap walk organised by Alan Reeves & Geoff Hunt on the 13th April.
Below is the full events programme for 2014. For specific information about any event look up the Diary & Walks section on our website or contact Roger Heath 01737 352832 or James Biggs 07889 384047.

A big thanks to Colin & Pauline Smith who are making their debut this year as walk organisers. I am sure they will produce a fantastic walk for us.
Annual subscriptions are to remain at £2 for adult members. Please give them to Kath Biggs (Club Treasurer) next time you see her.
Lastly, please don't forget to tell your friends and family about quizwalks and bring them along; new faces are always welcome. It has been proven over the years that "word of mouth" is by far the most effective way to introduce new people.
I will look forward to seeing you in the countryside soon.
