Cooking for Bryn Golau trip, 27th-29th January 2012

This is a wiki (editable web page) to organise cooking for the CUHWC trip to Solihull Mountaineering Club's Bryn Golau hut in Dinas Mawddwy, mid-Wales, on the weekend of 27th-29th January 2012. All crockery, cutlery, utensils, pots and pans are provided. The club will supply cooking oil.

NB: There is a pub (the Red Lion or Y Llew Coch) in Dinas Mawddwy, only a short walk from the bunkhouse, if anyone would like pub grub.

Click edit at the top to change the text (you'll need to be logged in to your account on the website first - click here to register if you don't have one). You can either suggest a meal idea or join one of the existing ones and you're obviously also welcome to sort yourself out (move your name to 'Independent'). Please remove your name from the section at the bottom once you're in a group or have decided to cook alone. The person who suggests the meal is responsible for arranging the ingredients - everyone else in the group should bring money on the trip to pay for their share, and expect to help with the preparation and washing up.

Meal suggestions by Tuesday evening. Finalise groups by Wednesday night so the person suggesting the meal knows how much they have to buy and has a couple of days to do the shopping.

If you are editing this page before the trip email is sent out, please only do so to add meal groups not to sign-up to them. There has been an increasing tendency for groups to fill up before everyone has received the trip email which disadvantages new members who don't know about the wiki system.
