BRAVAS MEDIUM WALKING GROUP

Walking is wonderful in our part of Catalunya, and our monthly walks take us into quiet lanes, fields and forests, along magnificent coastlines, rivers and streams and sometimes into the mountains where we see medieval villages, castles, monasteries, carpets of spring flowers, a wide range of birds and the occasional wild animal. We talk all the time and laugh a lot - and the medics tell us that the activity is good for us because it gets the heart pumping vigorously without straining the system, oils the joints and fills our lungs with the pure air of this beautiful part of Spain.

Our walks are on the second Wednesday of each month and open to Bravas members with priority given to those who agree to lead a walk during the following twelve months and those who have led medium walks in the previous 12 months. Each walk is limited to 25, and we walk at a steady pace and take short breaks about once an hour, our walks are between 8 and 10 kilometres in length. The walk organiser leads from the front and the backstop supports slower walkers at the rear. Cameras and binoculars are welcome and we encourage mobile phones to keep in contact in case someone gets lost.

Details of each walk are published 10 – 14 days in advance, guests are welcome, on request to the event organiser, provided that the walk is not full.

Please note that participation in all U3A events is at the participant's own risk, as we do not provide insurance for event participants. We do have third party insurance cover in place which covers any claims made against us by others. Please bring your Catsalut or EHIC card, and details of any private health insurance policy you may hold.

SHARING Is an important principle for our U3A and includes;

Hospitality – if a group member hosting an event at their home provides refreshments, a contribution of 50 cents should be collected from each member attending to cover costs.

Transport - To reduce driving costs and encourage members to offer lifts to others in the group our U3A has a formula to share costs. Multiply the number of kilometres driven x 20 cents and divide between the number of people in the car (including the driver).

It is extremely important that all members share these costs regardless of their ability to cover the costs themselves. This is to avoid embarrassment and enable everyone to offer hospitality or transport and hence participate fully in the U3A.

Every member should expect to lead a walk at least once every couple of years, this can be one of your favourite walks because if you like it then it is guaranteed the rest f the group will also enjoy it. At the start of each year I will ask for volunteers to lead walks, prior to the month you have chosen I will send you a reminder email along with the template to be completed and returned to me 3 weeks before the event date. Make sure the template is completed with as much detail as possible, referring to the walking guidelines for level of difficulty. Don’t worry if you have problems I am here to help. Once the event is posted the walk you, receive emails as members sign on.
