Tenbury Rambling Club Walks Rules
1. The leader should describe the walk so that everyone is aware of the features of the walk and then performs a head count.
2. The leader should nominate a back marker and that person should remain at the back. This responsibility can be changed during a walk by the leader only.
3. The leaders should set a pace to suit the slower members of the group and regularly check that the group is keeping together.
4. At rest stops leaders should give slower members time to ‘catch their breath’ before setting off again.
5. As walkers get spread out everyone should ensure the person behind them is still in sight and knows where changes in direction occur.
6. The leader must always be alerted to anyone in difficulties or needing rest.
7. No one will leave the walk without first notifying the leader. Those leaving the walk would no longer be the responsibility of TRC or be covered by club insurance.
8. If for some reason the walk has two groups from the start, each group should stay as initially decided and adopt the leader and back marker approach.
9. Dogs are not allowed on the walks.
10. All members are encouraged to lead a walk. Assistance is always available from other members in relation to map reading, planning or the reconnaissance of walks.
11. All walks must be on public rights of way. Footpaths and Bridleways are shown in green on all Ordnance Survey maps. On-line versions are available at www.streetmap.co.uk or www.osmaps.com
12. Details of upcoming walks must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org one month before the date of their walk.
13. All club activities are undertaken entirely at the member’s own risk, neither the Club nor any of its Officers are liable for damages or injury resulting from their decisions.
14. Suitable clothing and footwear must be worn on walks.
15. Guests of members are invited to walk with the club on payment of the day rate and must abide by the terms set out in this constitution. Their conduct is the responsibility of the member inviting them.
16. Participants, who are under the legal age of responsibility, must be accompanied by an adult member who will have full responsibility for them whilst on a club organised event.
