Clwb Dringo Porthmadog - Sixty
Years of Mountaineering
1978 when Clwb Dringo was twenty-five years old Pip Styles compiled a history of
the Club which was held in a ring binder. In preparing this book to mark
the sixtieth anniversary of the Club, Pipís original work has been invaluable.
So too has been the Club Newsletter which for so many years Pip edited,
carefully filing each issue. There is also the Club Log Book in which our
activities are recorded. At its best it is an excellent record, but it was
not always as diligently kept as it might have been so the story it tells is
incomplete. However we have the minutes of committee meetings, letters,
bills, notes and some photographs which Club officials have kept over the years.
As a result we have a comprehensive record of the Clubís activities which
illuminates facets of life over the last sixty years." Dewi Jones
