Our volunteers spent a couple of days in Dundee manning a Mountain Aid stand at the annual Dundee Mountain Film Festival.
As well as all the usual promotional type stuff this year we included our very own hill-bagging board game. Using an 8-sided die (N,S,E,W,NE,SE,NW,SW) participants moved around on OS sheet no 25 bagging hills by landing on squares containing them. Different numbers of points for different categories of hills (munro, corbett, graham, marilyn) added to the interest. Our highest scorer achieved 57 points over 10 throws of the die. All participants were given a Mountain Aid pen as a souvenir!
And of course we had donation buckets available on the table. The Mountain Aid trustees would like to thank those attenders who were kind enough to make a wee donation. We raised £57.51 for Mountain Aid funds - enough to pay for a place on one of our free 1-day courses.
