BMC Expedition Planning Seminar (Saturday 17 Jan 2015)Do you want to go on an expedition but aren't sure how to go about it?

The BMC's International Committee is hosting a day-long seminar for those who would like to learn about the practicalities of planning and taking part in expeditions to the Greater Ranges.
The seminar has been designed to help those considering going to the greater ranges for the first time or those wanting to top up their skills and knowledge.
Come along, ask questions, learn from the experts and meet active mountaineers and leading activists.
The day will be split into two parts.
The first part will be a series of workshops:

Although the day is specifically for those wanting to learn about expeditions to the Greater Range it will also raise money for BMC expedition grants.
