Whilst I've not been sending out regular updates recently that doesn't mean we've not been busy. There has been lots of important (although not very exciting) work happening in the area of GDPR, insurance, etc. So it's great to finally be back in touch to tell you about the results of this work and what you need to know.
But before we get into those thrilling subjects, I wanted to let you know about the plans for future communication from the club. The committee have discussed communication and settled on a plan to ensure we have a good way to share information with you all without overloading your inbox.
Starting in mid September (when I get back from the Himalaya's) we will have a weekly email which will come out on a Wednesday. The purpose of this email will be a brief "What's on" communication of things coming up in the next week which might be of interest. This will of course include club meets, but also we want to encourage club members to share any other events or gatherings that club members could join in with (e.g. a sport climbing day in the Peak, an evening cycle ride, running on Bradgate park, etc). Each week the deadline for submitting your offers to the Meets Secretary will be Tuesday evening ready for inclusion in the email on Wednesday (we will also post the details on our Facebook page)
Starting in October we will have a new monthly newsletter which will come out via email on the second Monday of each month. The purpose of the newsletter will be to share more detailed news on the past months happenings, information on club matters, plans for future meets, articles and stories from club members, etc. Again we'd like to include as much content from club members as possible and we will send out a reminder towards the end of each month requesting things for inclusion in the newsletter. Please help us make this a fun read by sending in your stories!
And finally a reminder that we still have a number of great meets left this year for you to join in with. As always the list of 'club meets' is on the website and the upcoming meets are include below in this email. Those wanting to go on the Mountain Biking meet you need to get your places booked ASAP.
Hope you all get out and enjoy what's left of the lovely summer. More from me when I am back from my trip.
If you are coming to Swanage with us this weekend then we are planning to go to the Kings Arms in Langaton Mattravers (just down the road from the campsite) for dinner at 7pm. Best book yourself a table as it is a popular place to eat or give me a call and I'll try and add you to my booking (07796 220055).
NB: Although the forecast is looking a little changeable my bets are still on Swanage being a good place to be in terms of dodging the rain so we are still game on!

This is aimed at those going on the Dolomites trip, who are new to Alpine climbing or doing Via Ferattas. Anyway I've attached a file with various bits of advice. Feel free to ignore if you're not going on the trip or know it all! No claims to knowing it all are made.

Just a reminder about a couple of meets we have spaces on.
The meet in the Lake District at the Barrow Hut near Coniston on the weekend of 15th/16th September. We are about 50% full on this. Since we've got reciprocal rights, it's a cheap weekend at £10 a head. Interested go link : http://groupspaces.com/BowlineClimbingClub/item/1176293
We also have spaces available on the MTB meet in the Yorkshire Dales. I know people are interested in booking on this meet but haven't done so yet. It's on the weekend of 5th-7th Oct. Again we are about 50% full, so if you fancy coming go to this link: http://groupspaces.com/BowlineClimbingClub/item/1177338
