Individual Blethers

Blether: 20 April 2022 7pm: OWPG member and external Awards

As usual this Blether is a chance to meet and chat informally to other members.

Our Secretary Julia will be inviting nominations for the Golden Eagle and Technical Innovation Awards, so get your thinking caps on. The Golden Eagle Award is given for “Outstanding Services to the Outdoors”. The Technical Innovation Award is made for for “outstanding innovation in outdoor equipment design and materials”.

Our Awards Organiser Jacquetta will remind members about the dates, categories and submissions process for the OWPG Awards open to members. You will have from 3 to 31 May to submit your entries, so now’s the time to start thinking about what you will enter. See this page for details.

All members will receive an email link to enable you join the Blether – if this goes astray please contact Felicity for a reminder.


In previous Blethers, some interesting questions also came up through the chat room – you’ll find a copy of all Blether chats plus links to any recordings from Blethers in the new Blether Forum (login required). This is also the place in which to suggest topics for future Blether Zooms. If you click a recording link you will have the opportunity to view or download any of three files: video, audio or chat from the Zoom session.
