Bowline CC - Weekly update (Tuesday 16th July)

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Tuesday, 16th July 2019 @ 1:28pm

Hi Bowliners,

From what I've heard some 'adventures' were had on the club BBQ weekend in Snowdonia. Lots of climbing by the sea at Gogarth and on the high mountain crags too. If you couldn't make it this time why not book your place for the summer meal weekend!

Have a great week!

Bowline CC - It's a sell out!

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Thursday, 11th July 2019 @ 7:36pm

Hey Bowliners,

Great to see that we've been having strong attendance on our meets recently, there might be the odd place left for the club hut this weekend if you're quick. And all the club reserved spaces for the Cornwall meet are sold out (although you can try and book directly with the campsite if you'd still like to join us).

Just wanted a highlight a few meets coming up with places currently available but likely to sell out soon:

  • Summer meal weekend - Always a great laugh and this year we're back in North Wales at the Karabiner MC hut were we had a cracking time back in 2014. Climbing, walking, scrambling, biking, etc by day and then a tasy meal, drinks and socialising on the Saturday night. Book your place now via the website.
  • Mountain Biking meet - Our annual homage to Mountain Biking this year takes us to the Lake District where there is a great plan for cycling socialising already arranged thanks to Rob Pullen. Grab you place now via the club website.

Kind regards,

Andy

Bowline CC - Weekly update (Tuesday 9th July)

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Tuesday, 9th July 2019 @ 3:38pm

Hi Bowliners,

It was a cracking weekend in the Howgills (Lake District) for the Saunders Mountain Marathon. The sun shone most of the time (making it a little too warm on Saturday) and we enjoyed exploring this less often visited part of the Lakes. We had several teams of club members complete the race, it's a good event for getting into doing Mountain Marathons so why not join us for next years event!

Looking ahead to the coming weekend the forecast looks good so book you place at the club hut for our BBQ at the club hut weekend. Don't leave it too late!

Please get your places booked for our Cornwall trip ASAP as we need to confirm our numbers to the campsite. You can book your place now via the website.

  • Tuesday nights as always we are getting out bouldering fix at The Climbing Station from 6pm.
  • Wednesday evening running - This week meeting at Bradgate Park main car park, 18:30. All abilities welcome!
  • On Thursday evening we'll be climbing at Wildcat Crag in Matlock Bath. Watch-out for an email with timings shortly.

Once again have a great week everyone and enjoy the weekend adventures!

Bowline CC - Peak District climbing and British bouldering championships

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Friday, 5th July 2019 @ 2:30pm

Hey Bowliners,

We have a new member to out club, Peter Hailwood, a keen climber who has already joined us for a few climbing meets. Peter is keen to tempt you to head to the Peak District this weekend, which given the forecast seems like a fine plan. If you are free why not join Peter fo Saturday/Sunday (or both), here's the message from Peter and his contact details:

I'm new to the club but have climbed with a few members already - recently back from a few months travelling around Squamish and Yosemite so am very happy giving a good catch and safe with gear - safety first!  Happy climbing up to HVS but will take on some E1s if I've had my Weetabix.

Peak District this weekend:
 

Saturday - looking to climb in the VS and HVS range.  Meet 10am.  Currently suggesting stanage/Burbage area for lack of better ideas but I am 100% flexible on this - also depends on group size.  
 

Camping Saturday night near hathersage if anybody would like to join me (BYOT - bring your own tent).  Couple of beers on the menu.  Fantastic weather for it.
 

Sunday - Morning - some chilled trad.  Happy to help out newbies, I just ask that you know how to lead belay.  Evening - head to Sheffield to watch the British bouldering championships.  Should be an incredible atmosphere.
 

Please email me on peterahailwood@gmail.com or text 07535156314
 

I look forward to meeting some more bowliners
 

Pete

Bowline CC - Weekly update (Tuesday 25th June)

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Tuesday, 25th June 2019 @ 11:54pm

Hi Bowliners,

We had a lovely time at on the family meet at the weekend. The weather was perfect so adults went climbing in the pass, whilst the youngsters did some walking, lake swimming and visited the slate museum. We've got a couple more family meets this year, including a joint family meet with the MAM club, check these out in the meets list.

It was good to see club members out in the Peak District this weekend. Although the weather is a little too hot in the alps right now where some club members are currently seeking shady climbing. Great to see that a suggestion is is already out there for climbing at The Roaches this weekend.

Once again have a great week everyone!

Bowline CC - Weekly update (Tuesday 18th June)

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Tuesday, 18th June 2019 @ 11:37pm

Hi Bowliners,

Nope I still don't like this wet weather, especially when my Facebook news feed keeps showing me pictures of club members climbing in glorious sunshine in Lofoten (really must go there soon). Still apparently a heat wave is on the way so perhaps we'll have some more Peak District climbing for you to enjoy.

Don't forget these weekly updates will be coming out on a Tuesday so if you want anything including let me know before Tuesday lunchtime.

  • Tuesday nights as always we are getting out bouldering fix at The Climbing Station from 6pm. 
  • Wednesday evening running - Meet at 6:30pm in the main Bradgate Park car park. All abilities welcome!
  • Thursday we are watching the weather forecast. Will send out an email when we've decided on the venue for this week.

Once again have a great week everyone!

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Tuesday, 11th June 2019 @ 5:12pm

Hi Bowliners,

We don't like this wet weather, it messes with our dreams of summer days/evenings of climbing, walking, biking! But at least we live in an age of good quality indoor facilities so be sure to join us this week for one of our evening meets which will likely be indoors.

Talking of indoor activities one of our club members, Liz Morrison attends the Callsithenics session at Ape Index on Mondays. Liz says all are welcome to come and join in!

Hopefully you've all noticed the exciting meets being added to the list on the website. Still a few more to add, our summer meal on the weekend of the 17th/18th August, and our Cornwall meet on the August bank holiday week. We'll be sending out invites to book places for these shortly so get them in your diary!

Don't forget these weekly updates will be coming out on a Tuesday so if you want anything including let me know before Tuesday lunchtime.

Have a great week everyone!

Hi Bowliners,

It was a slightly wet weekend in North Wales for our club hut meet. However the weather didn't stop Rob Pullen finishing the Welsh 1000m Peaks race in a new PB of 5 hours 7 minutes! Perhaps an attempt to beat the record for the club hut to Snowdon summit and back is on the cards?

Don't forget these weekly updates will be coming out on a Tuesday so if you want anything including let me know before Tuesday lunchtime.

Have a great week everyone!
