Scavvys - Members Meet Ups
Its come to my attention that some of you may not realise the meaning and the purpose of a Scavvy.
First the history.
Mountainviews was started in 2002 by he who did not know exactly what he was at, but it was a good idea anyway! Bleck Cra and Jackill joined the site sometime after this.
Roll the clock on a few years until 2009 and although we had all met Simon very few of us had actually met fellow members of MV. Quite by accident I offered to go with a group of MV members and show them the way up Carrauntoohil via O'Sheas , Mr Cra offered to take the rear(as DBloke was in bed with his back) and so it began. It was followed up by a trot in the Mournes with the roles reversed and then over the Faha ridge a few weeks ago with a rope or two.
Somewhere in the middle of this Mr Cra christened us the Scavvys( scavengers, jackill, cra, geddit?) Well anyway the next time you see us put up a call to arms please please please consider joining us for the day, we're not pretty but we are friendly, anyone is welcome MV member or not, all you need bring is a love of the outdoors, the mountains, the art of walking and a pint or three at the end of a long day.
Better still if you know an area well please invite the community (and us)for a walk there with you.I for one would be delighted to come. This I think is the aspect of the Scavvy we most want to promote, offer others the advantage of your local knowledge for the joy of sharing the mountains with the likeminded.
I hope that we can create a social network on a national scale outside of the regiment of a club, all you need to join is a love of the hills and an openness to the goodwill of your peers.
Two of us won't do though, make us an offer, go on, (Bleck Cra , have I left anything out?)
