We are changing the way we submit walks.
There will not be a specific walk's manager and the programme will in effect be run by the walk leaders and be overseen from within the committee.
We expect the core days for walking to be Wednesday and Sunday but we know that there are several members who would like to lead walks but cannot do Wednesdays or Sundays. We encourage you to offer walks on any days at any time and of any length.
Leaders can start submitting their walks at anytime, the earlier the better. There will be a deadline by which walks must be submitted to appear in the printed programme, but walks submitted after that date will be accepted and they will appear on the Ipswich Ramblers website and also the Ramblers website but not the printed programme.
The submission of walks is a three step process.
Step 1- Select a date
The calendar below displays all the dates booked so far. Check the calendar, and choose a free slot. Try to avoid offering a walk in an area already covered in the same week. To have your date entered in the this public calendar your date must be registered.
Step 2 - Register your walk date
Step 3 - Submit details of your walk
Once a walk is registered, please submit full details as soon as possible.
Ideally, we would like walk leaders to enter their own walks into the Group Walk and Events Manager (GWEM) on the Ramblers website. This is the database hosted by Ramblers which supplies the data for the printed programme and all the tables, lists, etc on our own website.
Once you are a contributor, these notes (updated 1 August) will guide you through the process of adding a walk. Further information is in the Getting Started for Contributors Manual and comprehensive guides on The Ramblers website. Please remember that the coordinators will give you all the help you need to add a walk.
Currently the coordinators are Jo Mann, Keith Moxon and Rob Young. For contact details see Contacts above.
