Bowline CC - Hooray for holidays

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Thursday, 11th February 2016 @ 2:55pm

Hello Bowliner,

Apologies for the lack of weekly emails recently, I've been in France enjoying ski-ing in Tignes followed by Climbing in the Cote d'Azur. And although I'm back now, I'm heading back to Tignes for another week of ski-ing this weekend so you'll probably not hear from me again until the end of the month. It's hard life, but someone's got to do it!

I'm pleased to report that we had a very successful 30th Charnwood Hills Race on Sunday just gone. Thanks to a lot of hard work by Bowliners and friends our 350 entrants got to enjoy racing through the Leicestershire countryside once again. Well done to all those that helped out and to those that entered as well!

Since I've been away it's great to hear that so many of you are signing up for our various meets this year. If you haven't already checked out what's on offer this year then you can find all the details on the website. I'm also pleased that we have lots of new prospective members coming along to our Tuesday bouldering and Thursday climbing sessions. Can't wait for the weather to improve so we can get all go climvbing outside!

Hope you all enjoy yourselves next week!

Andy

Bowline CC - Welcome to the New Year

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 18th January 2016 @ 1:23pm

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the New Bowline Year! I hope you've all got our meets locked into your diaries as this year we've got a super line up for you to enjoy and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on these trips. Remember you can always find the full list of meets over on our website.

I'd like to take this opportunity to highlight our trip to the Picos de Europa in June. This has been kindly organised by Michelle Aukland and already we have 15 people who are interested in going with many already having booked their flights and accommodation. I'm super excited about this trip and it will be brilliant to have loads of us their to experience what I'm told is a real hidden gem of climbing/walking destinations.

Also for those of you who can't wait to get back out climbing on real rock you should check out our Portland weekend in February which is being run by Tony Bishopp (thanks Tony). Unfortunately I can't make this myself as I will be away ski-ing, but if I was around I'd definitely be going, so hopefully you can all go along and let me know how great it was!

Right I'll stop there as otherwise I'll be excitedly telling you all about the other great trips but I'll save that for another week. Don't forget we are back at The Climbing Station on Tuesday evenings for bouldering, and we're also at The Tower on Thursday evenings for climbing!

Have a great week!

Andy
