Bowline CC - Wish you were here

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Tuesday, 11th April 2017 @ 11:18pm

Hi Bowliners,

Well at least I don't have to feel too bad about posting pictures of the amazing climbing here in sunny Font. As I see that loads of you have been out enjoying the beautiful british climbing, happy days! Need less to say we are having a fab time here with some great bouldering happening right across the grade range (and across the age range).

We have got some club members on their first time in Font and they are getting to grips with the unique Font style of bouldering. And of course of us that are back for our annual pilgramage. If you've not been to this magical place yet then I strongly recommend you make a plan to come here. If you don't consider your self a 'boulderer' Font may just change your mind (yes it is that good)!

Also enjoying the sunshine this weekend were a team of hard working volunteers who headed to North Walesto give our club hut some spring love. Thanks to these guys, all the earth has been removed from the front of the hut and hardcore laid, and then slabs laid at both entrances. The end wall of the hut has been tendered, bathroom windows painted, undergrowth cleared, exterior paintwork touched up and more work towards the base for the new shed. A really big thanks to all those who helped out and to our hut secretary, Paul Parker, for organising all the works. There is more improvements to the hut planned over the rest of this year, we'll keep you posted.

Also on the subject of the hut please be aware that following a proposal at our AGM and ratification by the committeee (as suggested at the AGM) we are increasing the cost for non-members using the hut to £12 per person per night. The cost of exclusive hire of the hut increases in line with this to £144 per night. Also, at the discretion of the committee, a cancellation charge (not exceeding the value of the booking) may be imposed on groups of four or more people cancelling a booking with less than seven days notice.

That's all from here in Font. Hope you all have a great Easter weekend!

Andy

Bowline CC - Lake district meet additional campers and pub dinner

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Thursday, 6th April 2017 @ 12:54pm

Hi,

There were some people who enquired about additional camping for the Lake district meeting. We've negotiated some additional space with the farm for around 6 people to camp. If you were one of the people who wanted to do this please let me know ASAP so I can allocate the spaces.

Also, for those attending the Lake District meet we've had a minor change of plan. We will now be having our group meal on the Saturday night and then going to the nearby Newfield Inn Pub on Sunday night (which we will walk to from the farm). We are booked in at the pub for 7:30pm, there is no need to order in advance but if you'd like to see a sample menu you can find one on the pub website.

Looking forward to it!

Andy

 

Bowline CC - Hi ho, Hi ho, It's off to Font we go

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Wednesday, 5th April 2017 @ 12:00am

Hey Bowliners,

Wow we had a busy weekend with Bowliners spotted all over the Peak District. Whether it was Curbar, Stanage, Burbage North, Raven Tor you'd have found club members out trad climbing and bouldering. Seeing the pictures on Facebook made we slightly jealous that I couldn't join you, although I had a nice time taking some Explorer Scouts climbing at Symonds Yat on Sunday. It was also great to see some of our new club members joining in the outdoor fun too.

This week we have the first meeting of our new committee. Any club members are welcome to attend committee meetings so if you'd like to join us we'll be at the Blackhorse Pub in Aylestone from 7:30pm.

Hope you had fun bouldering at The Climbing Station tonight, getting ready for our upcoming trip to Font, oh yes it may be a little quieter at the bouldering wall next week. I promise we will try not to tease you too much with pictures of the awesome Font bouldering on the club Facebook page ;)

But before we head off to Font we have time for our first outside Thursday climbing session. Join us from 5:30pm on Thursday at Markfield Quarry.

You may not get an update from me until I'm back from Font. But if anyone is heading out climbing in the UK don't forget to share your plans with your club friends and let's get as many members out climbing as possible (see below for info on how to email club members).

Bowline CC - Climbing at the weekend

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Thursday, 30th March 2017 @ 12:55pm

Hey Everyone,

We don't have a climbing meet planned this weekend. However the forecast is looking reasonable, particularly on Sunday. I'm sure there will be some of you keen to head out for a climb and it would be great if club members could climb together, share transport, etc. 

So if you are thinking of going climbing and want to invite other club members along, or if you are looking for a partner to climb with, you can easily email all the club members by addressing your email to BowlineClimbingClub+ShareWithMembers@groupspaces.com.

  • Note that the email must come from the email address that we have on the club email list otherwise it will not be sent, you should receive a copy of your email if the process has worked successfully. Any replies to your email will go to everyone.
  • Club members can opt-out of receiving this kind of email by changing the 'Receive unofficial email from club members' option to 'No'. If you need assistance with this please contact the web master.

Happy Climbing,

Andy
