Bowline CC - Weekly update (Tuesday 4th June)

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Tuesday, 11th June 2019 @ 5:12pm

Hi Bowliners,

We don't like this wet weather, it messes with our dreams of summer days/evenings of climbing, walking, biking! But at least we live in an age of good quality indoor facilities so be sure to join us this week for one of our evening meets which will likely be indoors.

Talking of indoor activities one of our club members, Liz Morrison attends the Callsithenics session at Ape Index on Mondays. Liz says all are welcome to come and join in!

Hopefully you've all noticed the exciting meets being added to the list on the website. Still a few more to add, our summer meal on the weekend of the 17th/18th August, and our Cornwall meet on the August bank holiday week. We'll be sending out invites to book places for these shortly so get them in your diary!

Don't forget these weekly updates will be coming out on a Tuesday so if you want anything including let me know before Tuesday lunchtime.

Have a great week everyone!

Hi Bowliners,

It was a slightly wet weekend in North Wales for our club hut meet. However the weather didn't stop Rob Pullen finishing the Welsh 1000m Peaks race in a new PB of 5 hours 7 minutes! Perhaps an attempt to beat the record for the club hut to Snowdon summit and back is on the cards?

Don't forget these weekly updates will be coming out on a Tuesday so if you want anything including let me know before Tuesday lunchtime.

Have a great week everyone!

I'm afraid neither myself or Brian Quinn will be able to make it to Birchens tomorrow. Have a good time if you are going, but take care. Best to check on the RSVPs to see who is going and contact them.
