Despite the slightly dodgy weather, a good weekend seems to have been had all round, with a speedy decision to pick a dry spell and grab a session at Bamford Edge by some, some indoor route resets in the Attic of Pain, and good use being made of Redpoint and Warwick climbing walls, as well as, of course, the Station. Head over to Facebook or Instagram to check out some photos of member's adventures and don't forget to like and follow - both accounts are really helping to spread the name of the Bowline and our followers are growing, particularly with Instagram! Also don't forget that we have a really active Whatsapp group for climbing trips if you are looking to share an adventure - if you aren't already signed up, drop me a message on 07376 629180 and I'll add you in (we have one for mountain biking, too!).
TUESDAY'S ARE BACK!!! With the easing of restrictions from tomorrow, we can now socialise on our regular Tuesday night meet at The Climbing Station! People are already booked in from around 19.00 - grab a slot and come see us! This will now be a regular weekly meet for us :-)
THIS WEEK'S MICRO MEET - We don't have a leader or a venue for this week's micro meet yet - if you fancy getting out this week, please drop a message in the aforementioned Whatsapp group.
EXCITING OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE! - we are organising a crag litter pick at three areas which have been identified by Andy Harper (local BMC access rep) as being in need of some TLC. The dates will be Thursday 27 May (Grace Dieu Woods) and 10 June (Markfield and Craig Buddon), and we will aim to climb locally on both occasions, as well as go for a well earned pint afterwards.
