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."
Many congratulations to one of the most quietly inspirational characters climbing has ever produced.
"Fowler's expertise as a mandarin with HM Revenue and Customs ".
Interesting job title.
Actually, the Alpine club does look really good. Will probably apply to join as an aspirant member after 1 more Alpine season.
