In reply to UKC News: Wish I could join.....a few more peaks required though.

In reply to Roberttaylor: I joined when I was 18 as an aspirant member with just one season. You get almost all the benefits of membership - perhaps most usefully the reciprocal rights for the huts (and I love the Alpine Journal).

Many congratulations to Mick. I hope he can increase the activity of the club in the Alps.

Many congratulations Mick Fowler!

If you devote half as much effort to your duties as President of the Alpine Club as you have to your climbing, then the Alpine Club will be truly blessed.

Ha ha, I initially read that as "Fowler is expected to devote his three years as president to attracting more attractive alpinists into the AC."

If only.

Actually, the Alpine club does look really good. Will probably apply to join as an aspirant member after 1 more Alpine season.
