Bowline CC - Summer time climbing

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Tuesday, 21st June 2016 @ 4:21pm

Hello Bowliners,

We're back from a brilliant time in the Picos de Europa. Although the weather wasn't exactly in our favour it didn't really matter as the Picos has so much to offer. With great walking, cycling, via-ferrata and canyoning so even when we couldn't climb we were still off having great adventures together. There just isn't space for me to start telling you about all the great things we did in this email. Just ask anyone who went along and I'm sure they'll tell you all about it and by the time they've finished you'll be itching to go there yourself.

Summer time climbing is here now so come and make the most of it with us. Starting off with our Thursday climbing trip which this week takes us to Birchen Edge from 6pm this Thursday. Then it's off to the club hut in North Wales this weekend, with dry/warm weather forecast all weekend it is definitely the time to make the most of the great climbing and walking in Snowdonia. And looking a bit further ahead it's high time you got your place booked for our Summer Meal weekend in the Forest of Dean, with climbing and mountain biking by day and a lovely meal and partying on the Saturday night.

Also if you fancy trying your hand at a mountain marathon then why not enter the Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon. There are still a few places available and we have several pairs of Bowliners entering. 

Have a great week one and all,

Andy

Bowline CC - Picos we can

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Friday, 10th June 2016 @ 12:18pm

Hello Bowliners,

I've delibrately delayed this weeks update as I will be enjoying our trip to the Picos de Europa next week so I won't be sending you an update again until I get back. Needless to say there are lots of excited Bowliners counting down the hours until we fly out for what promises to be an excellent adventure. Watch out for pictures and updates on our facebook group and of course we'll happily tell you all about it when we're back.

If you can't join us in the Picos don't forget we have plenty more great meets planned for this year so make sure you've booked your places and got these in your diary. As well as the planned meets there will no doubt be day trips to the Peak as well, like the excellent day we had last Sunday at Bamford edge, featuring lots of 'hanging around' on Gargoyle Flake (see our photo of the week or more pics on the facebook page).

Whilst I'm away it would be great if there was some Peak trips arranged. So if you are up for getting a group together it's easy for you to email other like minded club members (see the instructions at the bottom of this email).

OK I'm off to pack my bags. Hope you all have a great time whilst we're away!

Andy
