26/06/2019 - Zip Wire Adventure
Amazingly, the Provincial Grand Master has expressed a desire to throw himself off the top of a Welsh mountain, all for a good cause of course, the 2024 Festival.
Not to be outdone, the rest of the Provincial top team ( Deputy PGM David Thomas, Assistant PGM’s Mike Rawle and Kevin Parkes, and Wardens-to-be Jeremy Roberts and Andy Mapperson) have also volunteered (to take part, not to throw him off!).
This is not for the faint-hearted: ZipWorld’s Velocity 2 in Bethesda, Snowdonia is the world’s fastest zip-wire, with speeds exceeding 100mph, depending on weight and wind strength, and at 1 mile approximately, is Europe’s longest. The start is at 1,400’ and the descent is 730’: one of the challenges is how to stop! All can be seen on http://www.zipworld.co.uk/adventure/velocity
This is planned to happen on the 26th of June this summer. There will be an opportunity to sponsor participants at Lodges ( sponsorship forms will be sent out to Charity Stewards), at the Provincial AGM, and via social media: go to the Provincial website and follow the links, or visit the brand new Festival Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/E2024festival and lookout for #zipfor2024
We plan to book 100 places to participate in this exhilarating zip-wire adventure, raising cash for 2024 at the same time. Apart from the sponsored places, there will be an opportunity for Brethren and family members to join, strictly on a first-come-first-served basis.
There will be 2 coaches running, one from Tettenhall Road, Wolverhampton and one from Shelton Masonic Hall, Stoke, both departing 9.30am. We will have a room reserved for us at the ZipWorld Centre, Bethesda, and a buffet lunch provided.
If you would like to make a donation to the event and help our PGM raise money for our festival, you can help by logging on the his everydayhero page: https://e2024.everydayhero.com/uk/pgm-s-velocity-2-zip-wire-challenge
