I've some very sad news to pass on to everybody. Lisa McDermid who used to be a member of the club has been killed in an accident on the Aonach Eagach last Saturday. Lisa had moved to Scotland some years ago, but still kept in touch with the club and also used to join us on some of the meets when we went North of the border. We don't know when Lisa's funeral is yet, but as soon as we know we'll spread the word. Lisa's partner is Bob Hughes. If you would like to send your condolences I've sent round Bob's contact details by EMail.

The funeral will take place on Tuesday 23rd September 2.15pm at the Unitarian Chapel, King Edward Street, Macclesfield SK10 1AB
(then close family only to the crematorium for the committal)
This will be followed by a gathering at the Masonic Hall, Riseley Street, Macclesfield SK10 1BW to which everyone is welcome. Only family flowers.
Donations to the Cornwall air Ambulance who did everything they could to save Craig
No dress code - Janet has asked people to come as who they are.
Parking at either the Masonic Hall (5-10 min walk in almost a straight line and they are happy for people to park there on the day) or at Whalley Hayes car park, Westminster St/King Edward Street SK10 1BS (free after 3pm).
There is also a book of condolences that anyone who would like to contribute a story, a picture or a thought to do so. You can send your messages to Mark Hartell at email@example.com, who was a close friend of Craig's and has very kindly agreed to add them to the condolence book.
I've some very sad news to pass on. Craig Harwood who used to be a very long standing member of the Bowline Climbing Club has been killed in a climbing accident at Bude last week. Craig was a very active member of the Bowline for many years, before moving away from the Leicestershire area. Craig was a very keen climber and runner. Craig helped to organise the Charnwood Hills Race and was also instrumental in helping many novice climbers to begin their rock climbing careers; I can remember being dragged up a route on Craig Cywarch in Mid Wales by Craig.
Our thoughts are with his partner Janet and his family.
