Bowline CC - We're back on the air

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 5th December 2016 @ 6:01pm

Hello Bowliners,

Goodness I can't believe how far back I had to go to find the last weekly email I had sent. Apologies for the lack of Bowline news waiting in your inbox. I've been incredibly busy of late, and whilst the club is very important to me, I just haven't had the time to pen a weekly update email. But rest assured I'm back on the case now and normal service has resumed.

First things first, I hope that I will see you on Wednesday evening for the clubs annual slideshow at the Blackhorse Pub in Aylestone from 7:30pm. Of course we don't use slides these days, instead we will have a projector and laptop so that you can share with us your favourite pictures and stories. It doesn't have to be just climbing, or about a club trip. Perhaps you have been travelling to interesting places, cycled/walked/paddled somewhere and would like to spend a few minutes telling us about it. The pub does good food and drinks which you can enjoy whilst getting inspired by tales of adventure.

Of course we will be bouldering at The Climbing Station Tuesday night as usual. There will also be roped climbing at The Tower climbing wall in Beaumont Leys from 18:30 on Thursday!

As I mentioned above the past month as been a busy time despite the dark nights and wintery weather. Bowliners have been really busy and we've had a series of very successful meets including our Chairmans Walk, MTB skills days, A love the hut weekend, The club annual dinner, The Mountain Biking meet, and The OMM. I'd love to tell you more about these great trips because we had some brilliant times, but then this email would be 10 times as long so just ask me or one of the other attendee's about it next time you see us.

We are working hard on the programme of meets for the coming year and I will be sending out more details of these over the coming weeks. In the meantime keep an eye out for an invite to the Christmas Bouldering competition next Tuesday evening.

Look forward to seeing you all at the Slideshow


Andy

Bowline CC - Chairmans Walk road closure

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Friday, 2nd December 2016 @ 1:32pm

Hey Everyone,

For those coming to the Chairmans Walk our Chairman reports that the road to Edale from Hope is closed so people will have to go through Castleton and over Mam nic. It's a little further so worth allowing extra time for, and making sure you know where to go.

See you Sunday,

Andy

Bowline CC - Two MTB places available now and last chance for the annual dinner

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 31st October 2016 @ 5:19pm

Bowline CC - Mountain Biking weekend place available

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 31st October 2016 @ 12:50pm

Hi All,

We have our annual Mountain Biking trip this coming weekend (5th/6th November) and this year we are heading to the Dalby Forest. This trip was sold out but now one of our members can't make it so there is a space available. If you're interested let me know ASAP!

Bowline CC - Dinner Time

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Tuesday, 25th October 2016 @ 11:17pm

Hey Bowliners,

We're nearly at the end of October and we still have good climbing conditions this is pretty awesome. I've heard that there has been climbing in The Peak District, North Wales and Scotland over the past week so get out there and make the most of it while you can. I'd join you myself but I'm busy preparing for the OMM at the weekend!

But enough about climbing this weeks mission is to get your tickets booked for the club dinner as we have to confirm our booking by Monday 31st October so you need to book you places NOW VIA THE WEBSITE!!! 

It's going to be a great night so don't miss out, and don't forget partners are very welcome too.

Hope those of you who went bouldering at The Climbing Station tonight had a good session. We're climbing at The Tower climbing wall in Beaumont Leys from 18:30 on Thursday as usual!

Andy :)
