This event is in the past.
The BMC Midlands area meeting is coming to Leicestershire and what's more instead of a speaker we are going to head out before the meeting itself for climbing and walking. We'd really like to see all club members take advantage of this opportunity to meet fellow climbers and walkers from across the BMC Midlands area and to attend the BMC area meeting.
The location for this is the countryside in and around Bradgate Park, just off the M1 near Leicester. The actual area meeting will take place from 9-10pm in the Newton Linford Village Hall. But before the meeting we will have walking, bouldering and climbing on offer, see details below. As usual there will be free food, thanks to the BMC, served from 8:30pm in the village hall.
Walking: Come and enjoy a walk in the lovely Bradgate Park. Our walking group will leave from the Village Hall in Newton Linford at 7pm sharp and we aim to be back around 8:15pm. Allowing time to enjoy a drink in the Bradgate Pub next to the village hall before the meeting.
Bouldering: Less than 10 minutes’ drive from the Village Hall is Beacon Hill which has a range of boulder problems and short routes to suit all abilities. We aim to be at the crag from 6:30pm until 8:30pm. Bring your bouldering mat if you have one.
Climbing: There are a number of crags in the area with some excellent climbing available. Take a look on UK Climbing and don't forget to check the latest access info on the BMC Regional Access Database. Remember to drag yourself away in time to make the start of the meeting at 9pm.
This meeting provides the last opportunity before the BMC AGM on 16 June for members to get together and discuss the AGM resolutions and nominations.
