We are going to be ordering some club clothing. We are doing this by individual order so you'll need to let us know how many and what size items you would like. There is a unisex Subzero thermal long sleeved top base layer in Black with a quarter length zip (£21.50), a female cut Navy/Marine micro fleece (100 weight) with a quarter length zip (£18.50) and a male Royal Blue micro fleece (100 weight) with a quarter length zip (£14.50). We are putting the club Logo over the left breast in Yellow. Attached is an Order Form (filled in as an example) please fill in the CLEAR fields, NO text in the YELLOW Cells please. Also attached is a Doc with some pictures of the Clothing in the colours we are ordering.
Great to see lots of you at our slideshow. A really diverse range of inspiring adventurers were shown, thanks to Claudia, Tony & Rachael, Simon, Rob, David, and Hadyn.
We have one more meet to see out 2017... get ready to have fun and test your skills against your fellow Bowline Boulderers at our annual Christmas Bouldering competition on Tuesday 13th December, 19:00 at The Climbing Station in Loughborough. With pizza's to share afterwards and fun prizes it's the place to be!
The competition kicks off at 19:30 sharp and you'll want to warm up first so we suggest you get there for 19:00. This year we will have two main competitions, one fun competition with a handicap system to make it as fair as possible. And a 'serious' points based competition for those like that kind of thing. In both cases you'll need a partner to climb with and you'll get 50 minutes to complete as many routes possible.
At 20:30 we will have the speed climbing competition set by Mr Richards, this will be the same format as last year with pairs of climbers racing to be the fastest across the wall.
After the competition we'll gather for Pizzas and drinks upstairs. There will be a prize for the male and female winner of each of the main competitions and also the winning pair in the speed climbing competition. We'll also have a free raffle with some bonus prizes.
It costs £5 to enter. Cash on the day please (ideally the exact amount).

I'd like to draw your attention to the recent release of the BMC Organisational Review Group report and the survey for members to give their feedback on the report.
This is a really important time for the BMC and its members, and that means you guys because as a BMC affliated club you are all members of the BMC. The BMC is a membership organisation and as such it is critical that it has feedback from the membership to help guide the work that is done by the BMC's volunteers and staff. The Organisational Review Group report makes a number of recommendations which will shape the future of the BMC if they are accepted by the membership at the next BMC AGM.
The Organisational Review Group would really like to receive lots of feedback from members about the recommendations so there is time to make any changes in advance of the AGM. They have put together an online survey to help make this as easy as possible. You should all have received an email from the BMC about this which contains a link to the survey, please please take a moment to review the report, even if you just read the summary version and then complete the survey. This needs to be done before the 22nd December. In case you didn't receive the email the survey can be found here - https://www.warpsurveys.com/bmc2.

This coming weekend it's our annual Chairman's Walk and Lunch. We're going to enjoy a lovely walk in the Peak District and it definitely makes sense to share lifts. Saves the environment and saves you money too!
If you are able to offer a lift it would be great if you could reply to this email. Likewise if you are looking for a lift please reply and then you'll be able to co-ordinate transport amongst yourselves.
