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 led nine club members through Nantymwyn Mine near Llandovery on the Saturday which began with a mine entrance hunt, then SRT and the blue stals (above).  Stuart organised a white wine and cheese testing event for the Sunday evening which developed into some birthday celebrations with cake and indoors fireworks.
September 15-16th New Property & SRT Practice This was the weekend that work started on the Sunday School, now that we formally own it.  A handful of members cleared the overgrown stone steps from the tram road, dug a trench at the back to help drainage, and removed most of the junk from inside. The basic SRT training session also went ahead with practice inside Whitewalls then on 5m and 25m pitches in the local quarry.
Sept 29th to October 1st Hidden Earth The BCRA’s National Conference was again at the tried and tested Churchill Academy in Churchill village on Mendip.  Club members also got together for a Thai curry at a restaurant near Cheddar on the Saturday evening.
