Previous few months Previous few months

October 13-15th North

Wales Mines Weekend

Our primary mission will be the Croesor / Rhosydd through trip, which is a classic underground adventure involving zip-wires, inflatable dinghies and Indiana Jones style rickety bridges. Plus there’s good scope for mountain walking in this area too. We are staying at the Lancashire Caving and Climbing Club hut at Blaenau Ffestiniog.

November 3rd-5th

Bonfire Weekend

Caving, bonfire, fireworks, barrels of beer, outdoors food and fun with caving chums and the family.  Based at Whitewalls.

December 1st-3rd Curry

Weekend at Whitewalls

An adult level weekend, possibly.  Local caving trips, then make and share a big variety of home-made curry.  Rice and poppadoms, pickles etc will be provided.  

August 25-28th Bank

Holiday at Whitewalls

Mine, Wine and Dine

Paul Tarrant has offered to take a trip to Nantymwyn Mine near Llandovery on the Saturday while Stuart France is organising a red wine and cheese testing event for the Sunday evening with a sit-down dinner too.

September 15-16th

Paint and Tech Weekend

An extra weekend in Wales at Whitewalls for local caving trips or cottage maintenance. For those totally uninspired by paint pots and bleach, Stuart France is offering tech demos on radiolocation and making a rack descender that doesn’t weigh a ton.

Sept 29th to October 1st

Hidden Earth

Come along and support the BCRA’s National Conference with other club members and share a curry in a local hostelry on the Saturday night. The date is a week later than is usual, but the venue is the tried and tested Churchill Academy in Churchill village on Mendip.

Advance notice...
