For new players- Midnight Ascent is the annual club trip to our snow-surrounded MUMC hut at Mt Feathertop, where the 4-7hr uphill walk begins at midnight on Friday and all sanity is left at the carpark. Think fancy dress in the snow, think three-course meal from scratch, think some classic adventuring with all your mates.

The full moon falls toward the end of August this year, and the trip will run on the 20th-22nd August. More details to come. Sign-ups will open on the 22nd July and places are limited!

Firstly a few key requirements of participation:

- You must have a demonstrated ability to be prepared for, and hike in wet conditions and very cold temperatures (e.g. in the snow). 

- You must have been on at least two club trips to sign up (so if you are a new member that is keen to come, make sure you get out on a couple of trips before then!).

- You must bring a costume that fits the theme of the event.

ON THAT NOTE- we're still looking for a theme- chuck us (bushwalking officers) your ideas if you have any :D
