General Club Notes.
We are a small friendly club of approximately 60 family memberships. Our family membership is a mere £12 per year which helps us subsidize some activities and issue our Bulletin, which contains far more than the trip notes seen here.
Winter meetings are generally held in Elgin Town Hall at 730pm. A charge of £2 per head is made to cover hall hire and refreshments.
Parking available at Lossie Green Car Park.
Bus outings generally pick up members at Lossie Green Car Park at 1000 on Saturday mornings. The bus will often pick up and drop off passengers at Fochabers, Alves and Forres along the way. If you want to come along to see if our club suits you, there is no need to join as a 'one off'. You will be welcome, just remember to reserve your place with Sara by email or telephone direct. The charge for the bus fare is about £10 per head.
We have a Data Protection Policy for the club and members are advised to review it.
Whilst the walks are generally at a leisurely pace over reasonable terrain, this is the North of Scotland and hills, burns, tree roots etc may be encountered. Members should assess the activity and be in a fit state of health to complete the walk without causing themselves further injury.
Walking boots, waterproofs and maybe a stick are recommended for outings, and dont forget your picnic!
"Although the MFC takes every precaution for the safety, safe passage and well-being of its' members on Field trips, no responsibility will be accepted for any personal injuries sustained or for any damage whatsoever caused by a club member whi;lst pursuing MFC activities."
The aim of MORAY FIELD CLUB is to stimulate an interest in and further the study of antiquities, local history, geology and landscape of Northern Scotland
Membership of the MORAY FIELD CLUB is open to all who support these aims. The annual subscription will be set at the ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING. At the AGM on Monday 5th November 2018 it was unanimously agreed: that membership would be £12 per household.
The MORAY FIELD CLUB will be administered by a committee consisting of the Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Secretary Treasurer, Bulletin Editor plus three members of the Club. They will be elected by a simple majority vote of the membership at the Annual General Meeting. Normally committee members will serve for a period of three years, but this restriction will not apply to the Secretary, Treasurer, or Bulletin Editor or to a committee member who is elected to another post on the committee. Otherwise, retiring committee members will be eligible for re-election after one year. The committee will have the power to co-opt two other members for special purposes. The quorum, at a committee meeting, will be five members.
The committee will organise a minimum of six excursions per annum during the period April to October; to give a balanced programme covering a wide range of interests. They will also arrange a minimum of two indoor meetings during the winter period.
An Annual General Meeting of the Club will be held in the autumn for the presentation of reports, a balance sheet and the election of a new Committee. All members of the Club will have the right to vote on any motion at the Annual General Meeting. A quorum at the Annual General Meeting will be twenty members.
Urgent administrative matters and modifications of the terms of reference may be considered at an Extraordinary General Meeting called by the Secretary on request from either the Committee or from any ten members. The quorum, at an Extraordinary General Meeting, will be twenty members.
