A public consultation is currently running to gather views on the future management of the North Lees Estate which contains a large section of the iconic Stanage Edge. The BMC is responding to this consultation but they are encouraging individual climbers and walkers who are passionate about this landscape to respond too. Find out more and how to have your say via this article on the BMC website.
From the feedback I've heard it sounds like an excellent time was had at the club hut by those on the First Aid course. It's great to see lots of club members learning skills which could really help if something were to go wrong out on the hill or at the crag. Let us know if you can think of other training courses that the club could consider organising which would benefit members?
Talking of bouldering hopefully while I am writing this you're enjoying our Tuesday bouldering at The Climbing Station in Loughborough (despite the damp matting). If roped climbing is more your thing then we've got that covered too. Every Thursday evening from 6pm we go roped climbing at The Tower climbing wall in Beaumont Leys.

It's bouldering tonight at The Climbing Station in Loughborough. We are there every Tuesday evening from 6pm and now is a great time to join us and start getting ready for the outdoor climbing season. And what better way to start the outdoor season than by joining us for our trip to Fontainebleau in April, more details on the club website.
If roped climbing is more your thing then we've got that covered too. Every Thursday evening from 6pm we go roped climbing at The Tower climbing wall in Beaumont Leys.
This coming weekend we have the next round of the BMC Youth Climbing Series competition. This round will be in Hereford and we are looking for volunteers to help with judging and belaying. I can offer a lift from Leicester for those that can make it. It's a great opportunity to see some amazing young climbers in action. If you are interested please contact Claudia Sarner - firstname.lastname@example.org. Still a couple of places available for our First Aid course at the club hut on this weekend of the 8th/9th February. Only £80 for the weekend including accommodation at the hut. Book you place now via the club website.

Over the past couple of years a crack team of Bowliners and friends have had a brilliant time getting muddy and wet whilst taking part one of the WOLF run events. Tony Hextall has orchestrated our entry for the WOLF run and he is looking to form a 'pack' to enter one of this years events (Tony is also open to suggestions of other potential events to enter of a similar nature). No previous experience required just a sense of fun and adventure.
If you're interested get in touch with Tony now as these events are very popular so booking in good time is essential. Email email@example.com.

Excited to see the announcement of the meets for this year from our new Meet Sec, see the list on the club website. Most of these are already in my diary and I hope to see lots of you at these meets over the year. We can still accommodate some more meets so if you have something you think we should be doing, especially if you are prepared to organise it, then please let the Meet Secretary know.
A quick update on the Charnwoord Hills Race. We have issued a refund to all entrants, this refund is for the full amount i.e. £17. We will be taking steps to try and secure the running of the race next year so hopefully this cancellation will be a one off.
You should all have received an email about the club AGM on Saturday 28th March. Please pop this date in your diary now. We'll send out the formal notice including the Agenda and Motions after the next committee meeting on the 13th February. And talking of committee meets the minutes from last weeks meeting are available now on the Members Area of the club website.
Still a couple of places available for our First Aid course at the club hut on the weekend of the 8th/9th February. Only £80 for the weekend including accommodation at the hut. Book you place now via the club website.
