Summer Outings Programme2012
Our Summer Outings take place on the first Saturday in the months of May, June, July and August 2012
Our summer outings are open to all club members and friends, we also invite anyone who is thinking of joining us and would like to take the opportunity to get to know us.
We leave the clubrooms at 9.00am sharp on the first Saturday of May, June July and August. The cost is £4 per person to cover entry fees and morning coffee. Cars are shared in order to reduce transport costs. All outings are suitable for those with walking difficulties unless indicated.

Ulster American Folk Museum, Omagh
Immerse yourself in the world famous story of Irish emigration at the museum that brings it to life. Follow the emigrant trail as you journey from the thatched cottages of Ulster, on board a full scale emigrant sailing ship leading to the log cabins of the American Frontier. Meet an array of costumed characters on your way with traditional crafts to show, tales to tell and food to share.

I will send more details about each outing closer to the time
We plan to leave at 9am sharp from the Club. We generally meet up and organise drivers etc before leaving to share cars as much as possible.
Cost is £4.00 per person. This covers the cost of entry to venues and scones / tea for the morning. Sometimes there is no charge for getting in but this tends to be balanced out by other places where it costs more than £4.00.
Please bring your own lunch (although the girls usually have enough to feed everyone!)
Petrol money is sorted out by individual drivers on the day.
