Hi Bowliners,

We had a lovely weekend in North Wales for Andy Harpers birthday bash. Hope you all made it out for some outdoor adventures too. We've got a good number of club members heading to Yorkshire for this bank holiday weekend, weather looks reasonable and there is still time to join us (but best give the campsite a call to make sure they have space).

Also we have a space become available in a Gite for our trip to the alps at the end of July. If you're interested get in touch with Andy Richards (email: web@networkmagic.co.uk).

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.

Bowline CC - Bowline climbing in the early 70's

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Sunday, 28th April 2019 @ 10:57pm

Hi Bowliners,

Those at the annual dinner last year will have already seen this but it has now been added to our YouTube channel and linked from the club history page on our website. This video is of members of the Bowline Climbing Club at Raven Tor. The original of this film was taken on a B&H wind-up cine camera using Kodachrome standard 8mm film. This has been digitised and enhanced to give a brief snapshot of climbing in the early 70's. NB: There is no audio, click the thumbnail below to watch.

A big thanks to Brian Manton for getting this video digitised and enhanced, and for giving us permission to share it.
