Re: Walk 26 October 2020: Vale Fuzeiros, Sharon @ 50: CLOSED

Sue & I are not now coming to Portugal this autumn, so I won't be leading this walk. Rather than cancel it, I have left it open in case someone else wants to lead it. Hope to see you all next year.

Paper today (DT) saying that there were 1621 deaths last week from covid...last year it was 1600 for flu & related diseases. Not something to get too excited about , especially as av age of those dying was actually ...

New covid rules

Hi all, just heard that ..."The new maximum limit of five on gatherings in the street, shops or bars halves the previous limit of 10."....so I doubt our walks are viable on a formal basis for the time being.

Re: Numbers on my walks in November & December

wonder what the ramblers situation is with all the various restrictions. Basically, limited to 10.....Russell & Linda are doing walks & selecting the first 10 that apply, but ( as above) I'm selecting those that have been walking the longest. We'll be here in November and probably doing the odd rec...

Re: Faro Airport

Does anybody know what would happen if you did test positive for covid at the airport?? There isn't any testing at Faro airport....Bristol Airport apparently had remote temperature gauges on arrival at airport before you could go into the terminal, not that I could see any. You need to complete a l...

Re: WALK - MONDAY 12 OCTOBER - ODELOUCA CLOSED

Is it right that someone can group book as surely this by passes Geoff’s rules? This is Linda & Russel's walk George...they can have their own rules & Linda said "it is first come first served".....must say, it is one of the reasons why I chose seniority as the criteria for my walks for inclusion, ...

Re: Numbers on my walks in November & December

As indeed I do, see :
http://www.forum.carvoeiro.com/viewtopi ... 39&t=25428

I had you on my s/s but left you off the list above as hadn't seen you for some time...now included. We are also due out in November , so fingers crossed; I am currently self-isolating from recent trip.
