On week long trips, the following awards are made:

'The prestigious Pineapple award'
Awarded to the person(s) who bag the most Munros in the week.

'The Rock' award'
Awarded at the President discretion, this goes to the person(s) deemed to be most hardcore.

'The Bog Roll award'
Awarded to the person(s) who bag the least Munros in the week. This is not to be laughed at, as those that win it have demonstrated a noble relaxed anti-bagging attitude.

We also keep a Munro Tally of Munros completed by club members.

Henry - also won a pebble, for incredible enthusiasum, but Kudo to Elliot, who despite a dodgy achilles tendon, still came walking on the bothy trip - I hope it gets better soon. Both put in sterling effort and prizes are fully deserved, well done!

The whether was not kind to us this time, and climbers always loose out on essential bagging days!
