The idea for this group is simply that there are probably lots of things you would like to do whilst you can but would prefer to do them with others. We will be establishing a list of activities we would like to do, within reason, which we can continuously update and then between the various members set about organizing how to do them, which we will split between the members of the group. Although it has been agreed by the initial group members to throw open any activity to the whole membership the members of the Bucketeers will get first preference where numbers are restricted.
