Bowline CC - What's on!

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Wednesday, 5th December 2018 @ 1:04pm

Hi Bowliners,

Welcome to this week's "What's on", letting you know what's happening over the next 7 days, plus any announcements from the club.

Special announcement - The club hut is now available to be used again after the recent refurbishment works. Sporting new insulation, a raised ceiling in the lounge, new electrics and plumbing for the lounge and bedroom, new flooring, and a fresh lick of paint the hut is now better than ever. Of course this doesn't all happen by magic, a very big thanks goes to Paul Parker who has spent many many days at the hut to get this done (and Paul's brother Tommy who is not a club member but has spent 7 days helping Paul at the hut). And of course the club members who helped out with clearing out the hut, decorating, and reinstalling all the furniture and fittings, a big thanks to you all!

Club meets this week:

Announcements:

  • BMC Organisational Development Group (ODG) - The BMC wants to hear from you! There's now a website where you can find all the documents relating to the work the ODG has done so far, and you can comment on each document and article. Find out more on the BMC website.
  • Cademan bouldering guide - There is a fresh update to the Cademan woods bouldering guide. Great to see development of bouldering in the local area, check out the latest guide here.

Bowline CC - The 33rd Charnwood Hills Race - Your Club needs YOU!

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 3rd December 2018 @ 11:43pm

Hello Bowliners,

The Charnwood Hills Race is being held on Sunday 3rd February 2019 and we need volunteers to help make sure it all goes smoothly! The race is a hugely important event for the club and the income keeps your subs low and has also enabled the supercool improvements to the club hut that have recently been carried out. This is the moment where you can help support the club by volunteering a few hours of your time during the morning of the 3rd February to marshal or help out with teas and coffees.

For the race to run safely, we need at least 45 marshals at a variety of points along the race course. You will need to be in position for around 3 hours, and in return for your trouble you will receive free tea or coffee back at the school hall, a goody bag with a sandwich and cake and a free pint should you care to come to pub with us afterwards. You also need to be good at clapping, cheering and generally being encouraging - there's always a good atmosphere out on the course. To volunteer, please contact Zoe Pickering via thechairman@bowlineclimbingclub.co.uk as soon as possible.

We also need 6 volunteers to help with the teas and coffees in the school hall, three of whom need to be at the school for 7am, and three  for an 8am start. To volunteer for this job (first come first served so get in quick!) please email Lisa Mackenzie at lisamackenzie8@gmail.com.

Thank you for your help!
