Firstly it's not to late to signup for the annual dinner. Big thanks to those that aleady have, and those that sent their apologies. However still plenty of you that said you're coming but you haven't booked your places yet. I need to confirm numbers so please book your places now, it's going to be great!
Also talking of events to signup to the BMC Winter Skills lectures are back for 2019. This year our nearest venue is Coventry. I know several club members have mentioned they are going so book your places now via the BMC event site.
Weather wasn't great at the club hut this weekend just gone however it's sure to be better for our 'Love the hut' weekend on the 23rd/24th November. We need a hut full of keen and willing volunteers. Remember you get FREE accommodation at the hut in return for spending Saturday or Sunday helping to work through the jobs that need doing. These meets are always good fun so book your hut place now.
Now the winters here our Thursday climbing will be at the Tower Climbing centre. We had some good turnouts recently so lets make Thursday night, Bowline night!

Well the weather is not particularly inspiring for outdoor pursuits this weekend. An excellent reason to spend a few minutes inside enjoying a tale from the club's past. Back in those days, a bit of water didn't stop you climbing E2 - Black and White by Dave Unwin.
And if you'd like to hear more tales of adventure whilst hanging out with like minded people then make sure you come to the club annual dinner and slideshow on the evening of Saturday 2nd November at the Belmont Hotel Leicester. I'll be sending out the invites for you to book your places later this weekend!
