Dare we say but it looks like 2022 is going to be the year we can properly get together again. With that in mind we have a great series of club meets to inspire you to come out for adventures with us. Club meets are a core part of what the Bowline is all about so get these in your diary. Watch out for the invitations to signup to these meets which we'll send out via email in due course.


We will of course have plenty of additional day trips to the Peak District for climbing or walking which we'll run as and when the weather suits. Plus, there is plenty of scope for adding more meets so if you have an idea (particularly one you are prepared to organise) let us know.
