Good evening,

I hope you have enjoyed Dennis!

Last weekend a group of us enjoyed the emergency aid course. The pictures look fab and many laughs were had.

The Boulder comp is fast approaching and excellent prizes are ready for there forever homes.

By popular demand there is also an extra weekend (14th March) for a club hut meet. I did a deal with the meteorologists and they promised me good weather so I'm booking my space now!

Bowline CC - Club news (Tuesday 11th February)

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Tuesday, 11th February 2020 @ 7:39pm

A public consultation is currently running to gather views on the future management of the North Lees Estate which contains a large section of the iconic Stanage Edge. The BMC is responding to this consultation but they are encouraging individual climbers and walkers who are passionate about this landscape to respond too. Find out more and how to have your say via this article on the BMC website.

From the feedback I've heard it sounds like an excellent time was had at the club hut by those on the First Aid course. It's great to see lots of club members learning skills which could really help if something were to go wrong out on the hill or at the crag. Let us know if you can think of other training courses that the club could consider organising which would benefit members?

Our Bouldering competition @ Social Climbing is coming up on the evening of Tuesday 25th February. Make sure you have the date in your diary and come along and join us. Suitable for all abilities!

Talking of bouldering hopefully while I am writing this you're enjoying our Tuesday bouldering at The Climbing Station in Loughborough (despite the damp matting). If roped climbing is more your thing then we've got that covered too. Every Thursday evening from 6pm we go roped climbing at The Tower climbing wall in Beaumont Leys.

Have a great week everyone!

Bowline CC - WOLF run

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Thursday, 30th January 2020 @ 8:22pm

Hey Bowliners,

Over the past couple of years a crack team of Bowliners and friends have had a brilliant time getting muddy and wet whilst taking part one of the WOLF run events. Tony Hextall has orchestrated our entry for the WOLF run and he is looking to form a 'pack' to enter one of this years events (Tony is also open to suggestions of other potential events to enter of a similar nature). No previous experience required just a sense of fun and adventure.

If you're interested get in touch with Tony now as these events are very popular so booking in good time is essential. Email
