Come and share the adventure with the Bowline Climbing Club! Rock climbing, bouldering, mountaineering, cycling, walking; based in the Leicester area we welcome new members, with or without experience. For more information please contact our chairman.

Now that the Government has published a Roadmap we are in the process of organising the Club Meets for 2021.
But we realise that people may have different views on how comfortble they feel at staying at campsites or huts/bunkhouses.
So to gauge people's opinions we've put together a short survey asking what people feel about going on Group Camping Meets and Group Meets at another Club's Hut/Bunkhouse. There's also a question where you can tell us what sort of meets / venues you like to go to and any other suggestions that you feel would be helpful.

Sorry to intrude, we are in the process of sorting out Club Membership Payments. We've temporarily lost the ability to log into our HSBC account, hopefully this can be sorted out soon. Although we've asked Membership Payments to be made to our Lloyds Account, PayPal or by cheque it's easy to overlook the details of the bank account details of the club, so it's possible that some of you may have paid the membership to the HSBC account.
I have blind emailed all those of you we have received a membership payment in FEBRUARY. If you have renewed your membership in FEBRUARY ONLY and you have NOT received an Email can you contact me and we can check what has happened to see if you may have paid into the HSBC account.

Just a quick reminder to everyone, we need to upload your membership details to the BMC by the 12th February for you to be able to get the next edition of the Summit Magazine. So if you've not got round to renewing your club membership yet could you do that by close of play Wednesday please. You can still renew after that date, but you won't get the next edition of the Summit Mag.

Mountaineering is one of very few sports in which your well-being might depend on the content and accuracy of a map and your ability to use it. Dave, a self-confessed 'map nut', will explore the history of mapping Great Britain, showing how instrumentation technology and improvements in display methods have driven the ways by which mountains are depicted on both paper and, increasingly, on screen.
Join us for this, our 3rd winter talk, at 8pm on Wednesday 10th February (Zoom link will be emailed to club members).
