Bowline CC - What's on!

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Wednesday, 19th September 2018 @ 3:18pm

Hi Bowliners,

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

Don't forget to send us details of opportunities open to club members or external events for inclusion in next weeks email by Tuesday night.

Club meets this week:

  • Sadly the long evenings are drawing to a close so our Thursday climbing has now moved back to The Tower climbing wall. Join us this Thursday from 6pm!
  • Now that the new Social Climbing bouldering wall is open in Leicester we are having a trial period over the next couple of months where we will be alternating our Tuesday bouldering between The Climbing Station and Social Climbing. Next Tuesday we will be at The Climbing Station.

Opportunities open to club members, and external events, this week:

  • Nothing to share this week. Are you doing something next week (Wednesday onwards) which club members could join in with? Let us know about it by Tuesday night.


  • Club members are booking places to see the screening of The Dawn Wall at the Phoenix cinema in Leicester. We've added this as a club meet on the website and our facebook page. Get your seats booked ASAP!
  • Invites to the annual club dinner and slideshow will be coming out tomorrow. Get your places booked and join us for a great evening of food and fun.

Bowline CC - Request for things for our first "What's on" email

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Thursday, 13th September 2018 @ 9:10pm

Hi Bowliners,

As you know from my email last month 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).

The first of these emails will come out next Wednesday so we need you to send us things to include!

Looking forward to lots of input,

Andy Potter
BCC Meets Secretary

Hi Folks,

We have 8 spare places on the Barrow meet this weekend if you fancy coming along. 
If you fancy coming along click on the meets link on the forthcoming events for this coming weekend, link below and purchase a ticket. It's the same cost as our hut at £10 for the weekend. Although the page shows 7 tickets left, there's actually 8 places left. If we get a full meet and the last 7 tickets are purchased and you'd like the 8th place then phone Andy Railton and we'll arrange a ticket for you.

For more info contact Andy Railton on 07894 533629
