/ BMC & Gouter Hut
You can buy UIAA reciprocal rights cards from the BMC which should be accepted in many alpine club huts, but not privately owned ones. However this year it was getting to be right pain to explain and argue for the discount in CAF huts who clearly didn't understand the system despite the fact that it says CAF discount on the back of the card. I suspect too many people have blagged discount with just their BMC card in the past! Unless you are all week in the hut or going for 2 weeks the discount versus cost of the BMC card needs to be considered. HTH SS
I'm in the AAC, but my pals were BMC, and they accepted them.
Smelt like a toilet? Shame, as I thought it was amazing. We were there the first week it opened, and they did have problems with the toilets blocking.
It was alos chaos downstairs in the kit area, and needs a better system enforcing/developing.
Hope they get it sorted though, as it is a fantastic bulding, and was a million times better than the old one
