2021 University Scheme Challenge-updated

 

The Universities Scheme 2021 Challenge in 2021

 

The committee have prepared detailed routes for each day of the walk and suggested the lodges that might cover those days as in the table below.

A recap on why we’re organising the walk:

  • Back with a bang – reconnect, reenergise, and reinvigorate our Freemasonry after being away from physical meetings for far too long.
  • Have a good time as well as relish the achievement of a physical challenge.
  • Unite Scheme Lodges as we work together to complete the challenge.
  • Link with Provinces – PGMs invited to join at a hall as we pass through their Province.

Light Blues Clubs and Stewards Lodges asked to help.

  • Raise money for Charity – the Duke of Edinburgh Fund in recognition of the support of much of his work to young people.

The DKW Cup is the visiting link for the scheme, and we’ve had a replica made that is to “visit” the home of every scheme Lodge in England and Wales.

While we’ve done what we can centrally, we need individual Lodges:

  • To have enough walkers to maintain a relay to the finish of their leg, and if possible, a vehicle and driver.
  • To follow the risk assessment and safety guidance
  • To ensure their teams are at the start at the correct time.
  • To liaise with the scheme coordinator and the lodges on either side to ensure a smooth transition.
  • To provide a “Lead Walker” to link to the walk committee and regional coordinator.
  • To report any problems as soon as possible to the scheme coordinator for their area and David Thomas

It is hoped to raise funds for a donation to the MCF in memory of Prince Philip, this is purely voluntary, we do understand that some Provinces are in festival ,or have other projects to support, however, a donation would be very much appreciated. – through the L993 David Kenneth Williamson Lodge relief chest (use Just Giving or the attached QR Code).

Above all please remember that this is supposed to be an enjoyable event, to make some lasting memories and no one is to be coerced into taking part, but we honestly think they’ll be missing out on a chance to be part of a memorable event.

Any questions you have regarding this event should be directed to your regional coordinator.

Thank you for your participation, stay safe and we look forward to following your social media pictures as the cup makes its way around the country #2021UGLE Challenge.

With best wishes, yours sincerely and fraternally

Chairman, UGLE Universities Scheme
