IPA Diamond Jubilee. 4 Peak Hillwalk Sunday, 12th September, 2010

This year is the 60th Anniversary of formation of I.P.A..   I have been drafted onto the National office, to assist in the organization of various events throughout the year. 
I have been drafted to help organize events throughout the year. One such event may be of interest to your readers. The 4 Peak Hillwalks is scheduled to take place on Sunday, 12th September, 2010.
The 4 Peaks are: Slieve-Donard (Northern Ireland), Snowdon (Wales), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Scafell Pike, (Cumbria).   This is not a challenge but a walk and talk.  

I am the IPA coordinator for Scafell Pike and other coordinators will cover the other mountains. We will select a time and the four peak walkers will leave their respective bases at the same time. More details later ( watch this space and the Durham Peeler magazine).
We each have an IPA email address and anyone interested in making one of these walks, should email that co-ordinator so we can record as to how many walkers there will be on the 12th September.
