Bowline CC - Summers here and the time is right... for climbing!

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 22nd May 2017 @ 6:49pm

Hey Bowliners,

We had a cracking meet at the club hut this weekend, a bit of a party atmosphere as Andy Railton and I celebrated another year of climbing. The mixed weather didn't hold us back with groups out walking, scrambling, multi-pitch trad climbing and sporting climbing too. We also got to appreciate the latest improvements to the hut, which was in tip-top condition inside and out thanks to the hardwork of our hut secretary, Paul Parker. This means we are nearly ready to install the new shed outside the hut, and we will be looking for some volunteers to help get the groundworks finished soon. 

I've not heard from many of you yet about the
joint trip to the Alps (Argentiere) with Ceunant Mountaineering Club from 22nd-29th July. Can everyone who is keen to be involved with this trip please get in touch with me ASAP via email so I can a plan co-ordinated?

Hopefully you've all received your invitations to our Cornwall Climb Fest on the August Bank holiday weekend. Pitches are selling fast, in fact there is only one left at the time of writing so be quick if you want to join us. Also I am putting the final touches to our annual Summer Meal on the weekend of the 1st/2nd July. This year will be based out of the lovely Bryn Hafod hut in southern Snowdonia and we will be enjoying a meal on the Saturday evening at the nearby Red Lion pub. Invites should be coming out later this week!

This week we have a Club committee meeting on Wednesday evening, 7:30pm at the Black Horse pub in Aylestone, all members are welcome! The Tuesday night bouldering at the Climbing Station will be running as usual and the Thursday climbing venue will be announced tomorrow (the forecast looks really good this week so lets hope we can actually climb outside).

This weekend we have our Northumberland Trip, it's not too late to join us!

Have a great week everyone!

Andy

Bowline CC - Alpine Aspirations

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 15th May 2017 @ 4:54pm

Hi Everyone,

Goodness I hadn't realised just how long it had been since I last sent out an update. Apologies for the interruption of service but hopefully you've all been receiving the invites to various meets, and seen the photo's of the great times we had in the Lake District over on our facebook page. New to the list is a trip to Northumberland for the Whitsun Bank holiday, places in the bunk house are almost sold out already (just one left at the time of writing), but you can still join us by bringing your tent and camping. We've also got a date set already for next years trip to Fontainebleau, for those wanting to hire a Gite it's worth booking early hence why we've announced the date now.

A while ago you hopefully remember we announced a joint trip to the Alps (Argentiere) with Ceunant Mountaineering Club from 22nd-29th July. A number of you have asked me individually about this trip (which unfortunately I can't make) and it would be great to have a good sized group from our club. The guys from Ceunant have invited us to a joint hut meet at their hut in North Wales on the weekend of 17th/18th June with the idea of getting to know each other before the alps trip. Can everyone who is keen to be involved with this trip please get in touch with me via email so I can a plan co-ordinated?

Since my last email the BMC AGM has been and gone, fortunately without the need for a change of executive committee after the motion of no confidence was rejected. The BMC AGM saw one of our long standing club members join the executive committee, Graham Richmond is now the Honorary Treasurer (see announcement here from the BMC). It's great that we have a number of club members involved with the BMC including Andy Railton (BMC Midlands East Access Rep), Claudia Sarner (BMC Youth and Training Committee) and myself (BMC Clubs Committee Rep). We would actively encourage you all to get involved and one of the best ways is to come along to the local area meetings, the next one is taking place on Wednesday 7th June, 8pm in Solihull (I can offer lifts from central Leicester, leaving around 6:30pm).

Also from the BMC comes the chance to see Tommy Caldwell on tour with two dates (Sheffield and London) on the 1st/2nd July. If you're thinking of going just be aware that this is the same weekend as our summer meal trip to Snowdonia.

Come and join us for our regular Tuesday night bouldering at the Climbing Station, always a popular evening. And this week our Thursday evening climbing takes us to Beacon Hill (weather permitting). At the weekend we have a club hut meet in North Wales, there might be a few places left if you're quick.

See you soon,

Andy
