  The 2016 LDMTA AGM and Talk

The 2016 LDMTA AGM was held on Friday 25 November at Wilf’s cafe. Edwin Coope is the new President of the Association. He has not only completed 21 Classic Trials, but also was General Secretary of the Association for 21 years. Recently, he was the author of the 60 Years Running booklet. Former president Dick Courchee is remaining on the committee. Last year the post of Chairman was vacant, but we are very pleased that Tony Richardson has now taken on the role. The new Committee can be found here.
The Organiser's report from this year's Trial is available here. The Planner's and Controller's reports are available here.
At the end of the AGM, certificates for the completion of 21 Classic Trials were awarded to Mike Hind and Quentin Harding.
Also the President's Award was given jointly to David and Miriam Rosen for their work organising the Trial.
After the AGM and buffet, there was an illustrated talk by John Fleetwood. “Alps End to End” covered his 2015 solo traverse of the European Alps in 63 days, climbing 60 summits and combining climbs, via ferratas and trails. It was clearly a testing journey and he had to cope with poor weather, inadequate food and tough terrain. However, he was often rewarded with magnificent scenery, lovely flowers and exciting routes.
The 2017 Mountain Trial will be held on Sunday 10th September from Gatesgarth Farm, Buttermere.
