Bowline CC - Alpine Aspirations

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 9th January 2017 @ 10:20am

Hey Bowliners,

Hot off the press we have outline plans for our Alpine trip this year. We are teaming up with the guys from Ceunant Mountaineering Club for a joint trip to Argentiere. Although some of us may well take the opportunity to visit for longer than a week we are aiming for everyone to be there over the period from 22nd-30th July. We'll be camping at the main campsite in Argentiere. More details will follow soon but get the date in your diary now!

Also the Ceunant guys have suggested we have a joint hut meet, before heading to the alps, on the weekend of the 17th/18th June. As well as being a great opportunity to socialise and get to know the Ceunant guys, we are also looking to arrange a session on crevasse rescue as part of this weekend. There will be a joint meal at the Ceunant MC hut in Nant Peris on the Saturday night. Again more details will follow soon!

At little closer at hand we have a club committee meeting this Wednesday evening, 7:30pm at the Blackhorse Pub in Aylestone. Remember all club members are welcome to come along to our committee meetings. You can find the minutes of the last meeting on the website in the members area.

Also there is a BMC Midlands area meeting coming up on Wednesday 1st February, 8:00pm at the Old Edwardians Sports Club in Solihull. The meeting will be followed by talk from Sheffield-based rock climber Maddy Cope. Maddy’s talk will focus on trad climbing in Britain and climbing in Yosemite.

Don't forget to grab your climbing shoes and join us for bouldering at The Climbing Station on Tuesday evening, and climbing at The Tower on Thursday evening as usual.

Have a great week,

Andy

Bowline CC - Happy New Year

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Wednesday, 4th January 2017 @ 4:22pm

A very happy new year to you all. Hopefully you had a good start to 2017. We certainly had a great time at the club hut over New Year. The weather was cold but good for walking/scrambling. We had some lovely group walks with beautiful views (click the picture to see what I mean). 

Whilst we were out walking some lucky club members were sport climbing in El Chorro. Congratulations to Anni Bishopp on her first 6c lead. You can see a picture of Anni doing the route on the front page of our website where it is our 'photo of the week'.

The start of the New Year brings with it a new set of club meets which I hope will appeal to as many of you as possible. A lot of thought goes into trying to arrange our meets, and there is no better satisfaction for your meet secretary than when we have lots of friendly and keen people filling up the places. This year I am aiming to flesh out all the meets for the year during January so that you can see all the details and choose the ones that you'd like to attend. Already on the website you can find details of all the club hut meets, the ski-ing trip to Tignes, the club AGM, and the bouldering trip to Fontainebleau.

I'll be adding more details over the coming weeks but in the meantime here are the proposed dates for the meets that are not yet on the website. I've not included here any weekends climbing in the Peak district as there will be many of these occuring throughout the climbing season as and when the conditions are favourable:

  • 29th April - 1st May - Lake district meet (Wallabarrow Camping Barn)
  • Whitsun bank holiday weekend (28th - 30th May + extra days) - Northumberland.
  • 12th - 10th June - Isle of Skye (Cuillin Ridge)
  • Weekend of 1st/2nd July - Summer meal (North Wales).
  • 22nd-30th July - Joint Alpine meet with Ceunant MC.
  • Summer bank holiday weekend (26th-28th August) - Cornwall.
  • Weekend of 24th/25th September - Yorkshire Gritstone weekend .
  • End of Sept/Start of October - Kalymnos
  • Weekend of 21st/22nd October - Mountain Biking Meet (Brecon Beacons)
  • Saturday 18th November - Club annual dinner.
  • Sunday 3rd December - Chairmans walk.
  • Wednesday 6th December - Club slideshow.
  • Tuesday 12th December (evening) - Christmas bouldering competition at The Climbing Station.

And of course we will be bouldering at The Climbing Station on Tuesday evenings, and climbing at The Tower on Thursday evenings as usual.
