Bowline CC - BBQ at the hut this weekend

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Thursday, 30th July 2015 @ 12:43pm

Hi All,


Looks like we've got a big turnout for the hut trip this weekend and all the space in the hut and camping area is going is already fully booked which is fantastic!

As there will be lots of us going can I strongly encourage everyone to share lifts as although we have extended the parking at the hut we will struggle if everyone comes in seperate vehicles!

Regarding the BBQ on the Saturday night I will bring some sausages and burgers plus buns and rolls to share with everyone. If you have anything else you want to cook on the BBQ for yourself or to share that is fine. It would be great if people could bring a few things to share to go with the BBQ, perhaps some salad or a dessert, or some crisps/nuts. And of course don't forget to bring some drinks to enjoy with the BBQ.

Looking forward to a great weekend. As always if you've any questions please get in touch!


Thanks,

Andy

Bowline CC - Hi-ho, hi-ho, it's off to the hut we go!

Hey Everybody,

So despite the rain Bowliners have been out in action over the past week with climbing on Thursday at Birchen Edge. And several groups headed out on Saturday to make the most of the sunshine. No climbing for me this weekend as I was exploring Castles in the Forest of Dean. However I'm looking forward to our BBQ @ Brynrefail trip to the hut this coming weekend. We've already got a full house but we could probably squeeze a couple more people in if you are happy to camp outside the hut, check with me first if you fancy joining us! I will send out an email on Tuesday about food for the BBQ.

I've selected a venue for our mountain biking meet on the weekend of the 24th October. We will be staying in at Tyddyn Bychan in between Llangollen and Betws-y-coed. We will do a big group ride out from the accommodation on the Saturday as there is lots of great riding nearby. And then we'll head to the awesome trails at Llandegla on the way home on the Sunday. Estimated cost is £35 for the weekend including Saturday dinner. Get it in your diary and watch-out for an invitation to book your place in the next week.

If you are a paid up club members you should all be receiving a letter containing a postal voting form regarding some proposed changes to the rules of association. If you don't receive anything and you think you should then please let Dick Freer (our Chairman) know. Replies need to be received by the 18th September!

Still looking for a volunteer to organise a meet for the bank holiday, could that be you? Get in touch if you can help!

Don't forget we have Bouldering and Cycling on Tuesday evening. And climbing on Thursday evening (watchout for an email from me when we have chosen our venue).

Enjoy your week,

Andy

Bowline CC - Adventures in climbing

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Sunday, 19th July 2015 @ 9:11pm

Hi Bowliners,

So I should have had more faith and gone to North Wales after all, well at least in terms of the fact that the weather did turn out to be alright in the end. We live and learn (or not in my case). But I did have a good day of 'adventures in climbing' on Saturday which you can read all about here. Bowliners were also out enjoying climbing at The Roaches on Saturday and also down in deepest darknest Devon. And of course there will be no backing out when we head to the hut for our BBQ @ Brynrefail weekend, and we won't need to because even if it does rain we've got a great group going so come and join us for fun on and off the crag!

We are getting a little excited now for the upcoming trip to the Dolomites. However if you aren't able to join us then you will have the whole August bank holiday to enjoy and what better way than climbing with your Bowline buddies. But we need a volunteer to organise a meet for the bank holiday, could that be you? There is very little work involved and I can help with all the email/website/facebook stuff. The suggested venue is Northumberland but this could be changed to suit. Get in touch if you can help!

Don't forget we have Bouldering and Cycling tomorrow. And climbing on Thursday (watchout for an email from me when we have chosen our venue).

Enjoy your week,

Andy

Bowline CC - Go away rain I want to climb!

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Friday, 17th July 2015 @ 1:41pm

Hey All,


So I had my heart set on a lovely weekend of climbing in North Wales but it seems that my arch enemy (aka the Great British weather) has foiled my plans once again. So as we have a trip to the club hut in a couple of weeks time I'm no longer heading to North Wales as originally planned.

If you are still heading up to the club hut then hope you have a great time. However if you are in the Leicester area and fancy climbing tomorrow (Saturday) in Matlock area or Peak district let me know and we can make a plan.

Bowline CC - Heading to the hut

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Monday, 13th July 2015 @ 4:40pm

Hi Bowliners,

So I missed out on a great weekend in the Peak District by all accounts! We 16 of us climbing at Agden Rocher on Saturday followed by a BBQ at Graham and Yvonnes place. On Sunday a wet start called for a walk but then the weather dryed up and it was Stanage for climbing in the afternoon. Thanks to Graham and Yvonne for hosting, same again next year!?!

This coming weekend I am heading up to our lovely club hut. I'm bringing a friend from home along to enjoy the awesome North Wales climbing and hopefully meet some fellow club members who will be joining us as part of our Summer sizzler meet. And if you can't make it this weekend then why not come along in a few weekends time for our BBQ @ Brynrefail club hut meet instead. Or even better come along to both!

The results for the Croft Hills Race are now available (apologies for the delay).

As always there is Bouldering and Cycling tomorrow (I will be at the Bouldering, hurrah). And climbing on Thursday (watchout for an email from me tomorrow).

Hopefully see you all soon,

Andy
