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.

Announcements:

  • 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

Bowline CC - Barrow Meet this weekend 14th to 16th September

E-mail sent by Andy Railton, Monday, 10th September 2018 @ 7:53am

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.

Bowline CC - Important Hut News and Dates for the Diary

E-mail sent by Zoe Pickering, Friday, 31st August 2018 @ 8:27am

Hello fellow Bowliners!

Just a quick note to confirm what some of you may have already heard - the much anticipated hut refurbishment will start on the weekend of 29th September and the Hut will be completely CLOSED to ALL bookings until the first weekend of December whilst the interior is reinsulated, rewired and re-lined. Exciting times - watch out for news of the grand hut re-opening once the work is complete - there's bound to be champagne involved! 

In the meantime, here are a couple of important dates for the diary for us all to look forward to:

10th November - combined slide show and annual dinner at the Belmont Hotel in Leicester 

02nd December - Chairman's Walk - this year we will be in the south Peak, at an easy to reach venue with what I hope will be an interesting and varied hike suitable for all the family! 

Tickets will go on sale for both events soon so keep an eye out and bag your spaces

Have fun and be safe
Zoe

Bowline CC - Exciting and important news!

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Saturday, 18th August 2018 @ 12:21am

Hi Bowliners,

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!

We have some important updates to the information for all club members. Following further work on GDPR we have made updates to our privacy policy which you should all take a moment to review. We have also been doing some work to ensure members are clear on the insurance cover that they have as club members. Related to this is clarifying what constitutes a 'club meet'. All this information has been added to the Members Area of the website and is also included below in the 'Important information' section of this email. Please take a moment to review this information and if you have any questions please get in touch.

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.

Kind regards,

Andy Potter
BCC Meets Secretary

Bowline CC - Swanage Saturday dinner at the pub

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Thursday, 9th August 2018 @ 8:16pm

Hey All,

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!

See you there,

Andy

Bowline CC - Dolomites Notes & Queries

E-mail sent by Andy Railton, Sunday, 5th August 2018 @ 6:18pm

Hi Folks,

 
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.

Bowline CC - Barrow Meet & Moutain Bike Meet

E-mail sent by Andy Railton, Thursday, 2nd August 2018 @ 12:37pm

Hi Folks,

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:

Hope to see you on both meets!
