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,

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 :

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!

Bowline CC - BMC Update

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Thursday, 21st June 2018 @ 3:23pm

Hi Bowliners,

Just a quick update on a few BMC matters. Firstly a big thanks to all those who took the time to vote for this years BMC AGM. We had a record level of voting participation, mainly thanks to the new online voting system. Checkout a summary of the AGM results over on the BMC website.

Secondly the BMC is again running the its 'How to support novice club members' weekend at Plas-y-brenin on the 8th/9th September. This course is only open to BMC club members and thanks to the support of the BMC it only costs £85 for the weekend which is an absolute bargain as it covers all the instruction, accommodation at Plas-y-brenin, all the group kit and a three-course meal on the Saturday evening. If you are interested in supporting novice club members take a look at the details and course requirements on the BMC website.

Kind regards,

Andy Potter
