OK so I'm not expecting to see the Vengaboys on Lundy, nor will there be any Ibiza'esque night life. But that is just perfect because we're going for the miles of awesome rock just waiting to be 'Bowlined'. No doubt we will come back with tales of adventure and great times. So if you are not joining in Lundy then why not come along to one of the many upcoming meets we have. Checkout the list lower down the email or look on our website, new meets include Mountain Biking, Fireworks, The club annual dinner, Chairmans walk, and the BritRock Film tour.
We may also try and squeeze in another day or two in the Peak district if the weather stays nice so keep an eye on your emails. We had a fantastic time at Stannage Popular yesterday with a great turn out and it would be good to do the same again before the winter comes. Check out some of the pictures on our Facebook page.
NB: The BMC Midlands area meet and talk by Nick Colton is next Wednesday 10th September, see the attached draft agenda.
Well I think we've been pretty lucky this year with the weather for our Bowline meets. So I guess it wasn't a great surprise that our climbing exploits this weekend were limited to Friday and Saturday. However we made the most of the good weather we had with lots of adventure climbing on Bosigran Ridge and on the Bosigran main cliffs. Plus with some teams arriving in advance of the weekend and some staying on too there was plenty of Bowliners enjoying the lovely Cornish granite.
And the rain didn't stop play completely, we just switched to different activities with running, body boarding and walking to keep us entertained. Plus visits to some of the local historical sites and the Newelyn Fish Festival. All in all and excellent weekend, thank you to Zoe Pickering for organising the meet and to all those who came for making it great fun!
If all this talk of climbing is making you want to get out on the rock the weather for this weekend looks favourable so keep an eye on your email as I will let you know where we are heading out too!
Also, those of you going on the Lundy meet I will be sending out an email tomorrow with some extra information!
Hello Bowliners and friends,
It's the Cornwall meet this weekend, hooray! We're looking forward to some exciting times so come and join us if you're not already coming. Those that are camping don't forget to send your £25.50 to the club account ASAP (and email me, Zoe Pickering and Dave Toach to let us know you have paid)!
There has been some mixed conditions in the Alps this summer. Several groups of club members have been making the most of the breaks in the weather and having some exciting experiences. We look forward to the club slideshow later in the year to hear all about their adventures. In the meantime why not head over to the BMC Midlands area meeting on September 10th which features a talk on Alpine experiences by Nick Colton (see attached flyer for full details)!
We are pleased to announce that the club will be getting a brand new website this week. Our new site not only features all the great content from the current website (thank to everyone who has contributed and especially to Robin Richmond for setting up and maintaining the current site). But it will also provide a central place from which we can email out information to members, share events, and also provides for group email facilities so members can share their adventures and easily make plans for trips! We will be switching our main website address (www.bowlineclimbingclub.co.uk) over to the new site on Wednesday evening. If you would like to take a look at the new website now you can find it running here http://www.thepotters.me.uk/ (but please note that not everything is transferred across yet). Any feedback/comments are welcome!
