Bowline CC - What a wonderful weekend

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 28th September 2015 @ 4:20pm

Hello Bowliners,

Well it was a wonderful weekend in North Wales with probably the best weather I've seen all year, in North Wales at least. Fingers crossed that it holds for when we return in a couple of weeks for our Love the hut weekend. Hope you all were out enjoying yourselves in good weather!

We've got only three places left on our REC Level 2 Emergency First Aid course at the club hut in November. If we don't get these places filled by club members by the 30th Sept then we will let them go to non-club members. So if you want to come book your place now via the website!

Our intrepid adventurer Suzie Imber has got here Andean expedition back on track after some vehicular issues. Check out the latest on the expedition over at Suzies Blog

Look out for an email from us shortly regarding the club Annual Dinner on the 14th November and also we will be posting details on the Chairmans (6th Dec) walk soon. Make sure you've got these dates in your diary.

As always bouldering at the Climbing Station on Tuesday and climbing on Thursday this week. Hopefully see you there!

Bowline CC - Who's up for climbing in the Peak this weekend

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Wednesday, 23rd September 2015 @ 12:38am

Hey Everybody,

I'm afraid I won't be around to climb in the Peak District this weekend. But if the weather is good then we should definitely have a get together on at least one, or better both, days!

If you let me know if you're interested and which days your free I'll try and find a willing volunteer to be our point person for each day.

Happy climbing,

Andy

Bowline CC - So many great adventures

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 14th September 2015 @ 2:22pm

Hello Bowliners,

Apologies for the interruption of communications. My feeble excuse is that I have been too busy having lots of great adventures. And from these adventures with my fellow Bowliners I could easily fill pages telling you all about the excitement on and off the crag. But I have far too many things to cram into this email so if you want to hear all about it I will gladly tell all next we meet.

I'm very pleased to have a variety of great meets lined for the next few months and hopefully you've all received invitations via email already. Next weekend (26th/27th sept) we hope to have a day (or two if we are lucky) in the Peak District for which I will send out more info nearer the time once the weather forecast is known.

This years Mountain Biking meet is now available for you to book onto via the website on the weekend of 24th October. We've got a lovely place to stay where we can enjoy a big ride-out on the Saturday followed by the Llandegla trails on the Sunday. Dinner and breakfast is included for only £36 so get your place booked now!

Thanks to our Treasurer,
 Dave Toach, the club are very pleased to be able to offer the REC Level 2 Emergency First Aid course at the club hut on the weekend of the 21st November. At only £80 for the two day course including accommodation at the hut on Friday and Saturday nights this is a very good deal and  places are already going fast so if you'd like to join us you can book via the website right now!

We are also busy making plans for our Annual Dinner (14th Nov) and the Chairmans Walk (6th Dec) so watch-out for more info on these but you can get the dates in your diary now. And looking even further ahead we are already planning the meets calendar for next year and we are very excited to share this with you soon!

Finally we are now heading into the darker evenings sadly. So our weekday meets will be the bouldering at the climbing station on Tuesdays, and indoor climbing at The Tower on Thursdays.

Hope you all have a great week!

Andy

Bowline CC - How much fun can you have in a weekend?

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 10th August 2015 @ 3:33pm

Hey Everybody,

Well if this weekend is any measure then the answer is quite a lot of fun. We had Bowliners out enjoying all manner of outdoor persuits including plenty of climbing, bouldering, running, cycling, sea kayaking, the list goes on. Lets hope the weather is good to us over the remainder of the summer so we can get out and enjoy more fun times together!

I will be away for a couple of weeks from this Friday so if I am slow to respond to any emails/texts please don't take it personally! I expect to return with lots of tales of fun and adventure from our trip to the Dolomites. Unfortunately I haven't found anyone to step forward and organise a meet for the bank holiday weekend for those who won't be in the Dolomites. No doubt some of you will get together and head out for some climbing so if you do why not send a group email round so that others can join in.

Looking beyond the Dolomites trip we have a couple more trips to the hut and peak district weekends planned in for September/October. Plus we have the every popular mountain biking meet coming up at the end of October followed by the annual dinner, chairmans walk, etc. Make sure you've got all these dates in your diary, you can always find the latest info in the full meets list on the website.

Hope you all have a fantastic few weeks and I look forward to catching up when I'm back in September.

Andy :)

Bowline CC - NEED A TITLE!

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 3rd August 2015 @ 9:32am

Hey Bowliners and friends,

It will come as no surprise that we had a super weekend in North Wales with the hut being overrun with Bowliners and friends. Although the weather did it's best to thwart our plans nothing could stop the fun on and off the crags. We went to Anglesey on saturday to escape the rains clutches with a couple of teams braving the cliffs of Gogarth (with Rob Goodman setting the pace on The Strand E2 5b) and the rest of us taking over the crags on Holyhead mountain. Then it was back to the hut to fire up the BBQ and crack open the drinks. Sunday started a little slower (what a surprise), and after getting rained off at Tremadog (apart from Neil and Ben who stuck it out climbing in the rain, well done guys), we went to Castle Inn Quarry to find some dry rock and finish the weekend in the best way possible (climbing with your buddies). Thanks to everyone that came for making it a great weekend, looking forward to the next one!

This week we have plenty to keep you busy with bouldering at the Climbing Station and Road Cycling from Anstey on Tuesday night. And there will be climbing again on Thursday so watch out for an email with this weeks venue.

Enjoy your week everyone!

Andy

Bowline CC - BBQ at the hut this weekend

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Thursday, 30th July 2015 @ 12:43pm

Hi All,


Looks like we've got a big turnout for the hut trip this weekend and all the space in the hut and camping area is going is already fully booked which is fantastic!

As there will be lots of us going can I strongly encourage everyone to share lifts as although we have extended the parking at the hut we will struggle if everyone comes in seperate vehicles!

Regarding the BBQ on the Saturday night I will bring some sausages and burgers plus buns and rolls to share with everyone. If you have anything else you want to cook on the BBQ for yourself or to share that is fine. It would be great if people could bring a few things to share to go with the BBQ, perhaps some salad or a dessert, or some crisps/nuts. And of course don't forget to bring some drinks to enjoy with the BBQ.

Looking forward to a great weekend. As always if you've any questions please get in touch!


Thanks,

Andy

Bowline CC - Hi-ho, hi-ho, it's off to the hut we go!

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Sunday, 26th July 2015 @ 7:51pm

Hey Everybody,

So despite the rain Bowliners have been out in action over the past week with climbing on Thursday at Birchen Edge. And several groups headed out on Saturday to make the most of the sunshine. No climbing for me this weekend as I was exploring Castles in the Forest of Dean. However I'm looking forward to our BBQ @ Brynrefail trip to the hut this coming weekend. We've already got a full house but we could probably squeeze a couple more people in if you are happy to camp outside the hut, check with me first if you fancy joining us! I will send out an email on Tuesday about food for the BBQ.

I've selected a venue for our mountain biking meet on the weekend of the 24th October. We will be staying in at Tyddyn Bychan in between Llangollen and Betws-y-coed. We will do a big group ride out from the accommodation on the Saturday as there is lots of great riding nearby. And then we'll head to the awesome trails at Llandegla on the way home on the Sunday. Estimated cost is £35 for the weekend including Saturday dinner. Get it in your diary and watch-out for an invitation to book your place in the next week.

If you are a paid up club members you should all be receiving a letter containing a postal voting form regarding some proposed changes to the rules of association. If you don't receive anything and you think you should then please let Dick Freer (our Chairman) know. Replies need to be received by the 18th September!

Still looking for a volunteer to organise a meet for the bank holiday, could that be you? Get in touch if you can help!

Don't forget we have Bouldering and Cycling on Tuesday evening. And climbing on Thursday evening (watchout for an email from me when we have chosen our venue).

Enjoy your week,

Andy
