Bowline CC - Rain, rain, go away

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 23rd May 2016 @ 12:25pm

Hi Everyone,

What a shame the rain put a damper on our plan to meet up with the guys from Barrow MC at The Roaches on Saturday. Although I was glad to hear that a group of Bowliners did make it up there on Sunday and had a great days climbing. Hopefully those heading to Cornwall this coming weekend will be luckier with the weather!

Thanks to Andy Railton we have another great meet for you to enjoy this September. Cycling the Peddars Way in Norfolk by Mountain Bike or Hybrid Bike, over the weekend of the 17th/18th September. The plan is to cycle the route on Saturday, stay at the Youth Hostel in Wells-next-the-Sea on Saturday night, then a leisurely cycle back on Sunday to the start. If you're interested contact Andy Railton ASAP so we can book hostel places - 07894 533629 or andyrailton@gmail.com.

Also on the same weekend (17th/18th September) we will be hosting a Family meet at our club hut in North Wales. The meet is aimed at (but not limited to) groups with children. We're not sure what exactly will go on at this meet, because the kids rule. Possibly we will got climbing the slate quarries or out into the mountains during the day, and have a communal meal and a few board games on the Saturday night. An invite with more details will follow soon.

We have a double whammy of things to do this Thursday evening. There will be climbing outdoors at Birchen Edge from 6pm. And there is also the LOROS bouldering competition at The Tower. Of course there is our ever popular Tuesday night bouldering at The Climbing Station.

Have a great week and weekend!

Bowline CC - Fun in the sun

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 16th May 2016 @ 4:16pm

Hi Bowliners and friends,

Lots more fun in the sun since my last email. Well perhaps not so much sun on last Tuesday evening, but it was great to be able to make Tuesday bouldering for a change and see so many of you there. The sun did shine for our Thursday climbing trip to Beacon Hill and with plenty of bouldering pads we had a great time pushing ourselves on some challenging routes and again it was super to have a good turn out!

The sun was also shining in North Wales this weekend where I was fortunate enough to enjoy a great weekend at our lovely club hut with an awesome group of friends. There was sporting climbing, trad climbing and bouldering aplenty. Hopefully you all found time to get out and enjoy the good weather too!

Weather permitting we will try to strike out a little further this week for our Thursday climbing session, hopefully heading to one of the closer Peak District crags. Watchout for an email from me with the details on Wednesday. 

And speaking of things to do on a Thursday evening don't forget that the The Tower is hosting the LOROS bouldering competition on Thursday 26th May

Hopefully you've all seen the invite to the summer meal. Great to see people booking places already, it would be awesome to have a completely full house and see as many of you there as possible!

Bowline CC - Joint meet with Barrow MC this Saturday

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 16th May 2016 @ 2:56pm

Hi All,


We have a joint meet with the guys from Barrow MC this coming Saturday at The Roaches. Plan is to meet at the Don Whillans hut at 10am sharp and then head up to the crag for climbing. At the end of the day the Barrow guys are either going to head to the local pub for food, or have drinks and cook a meal at the hut. Those who want to stay for food/drinks are welcome to join in.

Although there is no space left at the Don Whillans hut, if you wanted to stay over then you may be able to book in at the Roaches Bunkhouse or there is camping nearby too.


Fingers crossed for good weather!

Andy

Bowline CC - Sunny Stanage

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 9th May 2016 @ 2:17pm

Hi Everyone,

Well that was a much better weekends weather. I fact it was a good weeks weather and we certainly made the most of it, kicking off with a good turnout for Thursday climbing at Charnwood Quarry. Followed by a great gathering at Stanage on Saturday for what was a lovely day of climbing. A couple of us even snuck in a visit to The Brand on Friday evening. Check out this weeks 'Photo of the week' on our website, Angeline and Andy on Hangover VS 5a. And remember suggestions for the photo of the week are always welcome!

If you are coming to the Joint meet up with Barrow MC at The Roaches on Saturday 21st May I hope to see you there. There is a meal planned in the pub on Saturday evening, if you want to book a place please let me know. 

This Thursday we'll be climbing at Beacon Hill and hopefully in the comings weeks we might stretch our Thursday climbing further afield to some of the closer peak crags. Bouldering as always on Tuesday at The Climbing Station.

Have a great week!
