Rucksack Club


About the Rucksack Club

The Rucksack Club are mostly ODA members, Friends and their Families who meet every month - usually on the second and fourth Friday for a walk and refreshments, lasting a few hours, depending on the day. 

Upcoming events are posted on the News and Events (PUBLIC) Page, but more details may sometimes be posted on the Members Only News Pages and certainly in the ODA Events Calendar.  Anyone can join us on these walks, so if you can't access the News and Events Pages or the Calendar for whatever reason, please contact us for details. 

The walks undertaken are usually a few miles in length, but undertaken at a gentle and leisurely pace.  These are an opportunity for members to meet informally and enjoy a good walk, normally linked to some local historical significance and often followed by a cuppa' (or something stronger if you wish) somewhere.  Those who cannot manage the walk, could always meet the others for the refreshments only! 

A diary of our forthcoming walks will appear in the ODA Events Calendar  - but keep an eye out for updates on either the Public, or the Members' Newsfeed too.  We endeavour to update those pages of any last minute changes, so please keep an eye for any such changes as published there.

Some of our walks will be 'blogged' in our 'Recent Walks' newsfeed Page and some photos will appear there, plus, a selection of which will also be archived in the Rucksack Club Photo Album.

We occasionally have impromptu 'Breakfast Club' meetings which may then be followed by a walk - weather dependant.  Again, these are posted onto the Members News and Events Bulletin Board and ODA Events Calendar, so be sure to subscribe to the calendar to be sure of knowing what were up to.

Joe Brown (1999-2008)

 Joe Brown, a Labrador, was the official mascot of the Rucksack Club.  

Sadly, he passed away in August 2008.


This is Jim, pictured with Crib Goch in the background. 

Jim is the newly adopted mascot of the Rucksack Club, and accompanies them on their numerous walks.

Apparently, he relies on one member in particular, to take an extra pork pie with them!
