Bowline CC - The start of a new Bowline year

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 23rd March 2015 @ 1:15pm

Hi Bowliners,

I find it hard to believe it has been a year since I took over as Meets Secretary from the talented Michelle Aukland. So many great things have happened since then and it was nice to write my report for the AGM and to reflect on the awesome times I've enjoyed with my fellow Bowliners and friends (If you'd like to read the report I've included it at the bottom of this email).

Thanks to everyone that came along to the AGM last Wednesday, there are a few things I'd like to highlight from the meeting:

  • On behalf of the committee I'd like to say a big thanks to Andy Railton for all his hardwork (and there was quite a lot of hardwork) during his time as Chairman (Andy will be staying on the committee as an ordinary member).
  • We now welcome last years vice-chairman, Dick Freer, to the Chair of the club committee. 
  • I'd like to thank Paul Parker and Michelle Aukland for there assistance over the past year as ordinary members of the club committee.
  • And also welcome Suzie Imber to the committee as an ordinary member.
  • The remaining committee members are the same as last year, you can find the committee's details on the website.
  • The full minutes of the AGM will be available in due course, but several motions were passed which amended the clubs bye-laws. You will find the updated version on the website in the members area.

We've got busy time coming up with a Mountain Biking trip to the Forest of Dean this weekend. Followed by our trip to Fontainebleau over the easter weekend.

You should also all have received emails inviting you to our Spring 'open' bouldering competition, and also our Love the hut weekend. Keep an eye out for invitations to more events in the next few weeks (and if you can't wait check out the full meets list on the website).

Hopefully see lots of you at bouldering on Tuesday or climbing on Thursday.

Have a great week!

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Saturday, 21st March 2015 @ 11:14pm

Hey everybody,

Hope you are all having a good weekend!

This time I am emailing you with a request for a little assistance. I am off to Fountainebleau at the end of the month and I would really like to have my own bouldering mat to take with me. Does anyone have (or know of) a bouldering mat that is in need of a new home?
