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

Bowline CC - Change to members email list

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 4th June 2018 @ 11:09am

Hi Bowliners,

It's great to see that members are sharing opportunites for climbing, lifts, etc via email. However the increased activity means that a lot of emails are being received by all members as currently any replies to the emails get copied to everyone. Given the nature of the email requests being sent out, copying the replies to everyone is unnecessary, so I have changed the email list setting so that in future when people reply only the author of the original message will get the reply.

Kind regards,
