It is with great sadness that I report the death of Peter Goodwin. He fell on the final descent from Ruinsival towards Harris on the Isle of Rum in the Scottish Highlands, on Saturday 23rd August 2014. A few hours earlier, he had talked with friends, who were doing a shorter route. By all accounts, it was a beautiful day and he passed away at a happy time in his life in the hills he loved.
Photos of the summer Alpine meets are now available along with a meet report of the Hotel based meet in Pontresina. Photos and Reports for the Beer and Scottish meets will be posted shortly

The AGM and Annual Dinner was a sucess, despite the poor weather. Professor David Collins gave a very informative and interesting talk on his glacier research and comments on climate change. Many thanks to Brooke for another good Annual Dinner.
