Membership Information

 

                                                                         MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION

 

All applications for membership of the Field Club must be made on the prescribed form available from the Membership Secretary at the Monday morning meetings at The Hogar.  Prior to completing the application form you will be given a document outlining the guidelines which are applicable to all members and which you should read prior to making your application.  Prospective members must also talk to the Long Walks Co-ordinator on duty who will explain the relevant aspects of becoming a Member and suggest what walks are suitable.  It is usual to start with a lower grade walk until you have become familiar with the Club’s system of grading walks and you can accurately assess which walks are within your capabilities.

 

 

When you apply to join the Club it is important that you make known to the Membership Secretary any existing medical condition you may have or any medication you are taking which might adversely affect your health whilst walking.  If you are in any doubt you must check with your doctor and get his confirmation. If you do not mention any particular problems, the Club will assume that none exist. Please be mindful that even minor problems, such as allergies to bee stings, can be fatal in some cases.

 

 

 

The present Annual Membership fee is 10 Euros per person and covers the period from 1st. January to 31st. December.

There is no discount for joining mid-term. Registration is required annually and can be made at any time throughout the year at the Membership Secretary’s Desk at the Hogar.  At this time you must sign to say that you accept the conditions of membership as laid out on the membership application form.  You must also inform the Membership Secretary should you have any ongoing illness which might compromise your ability to undertake whatever grades of walks you subsequently book.

 

It is a statutory legal requirement for the Field Club to have your N.I.E. or Passport details on file.  This information is kept strictly confidential, access being restricted to the President, the Vice-President and the Membership Secretary.  Failure to provide this information will result in the membership application being declined as the Field Club would be in breach of its legal duty.

 

 

 

Members take part in Club activities entirely at their own risk. All Members are required annually to re-register and thereby re-affirm their acceptance of this condition.

 

It is strongly advised that Members take out personal accident insurance.
