Brief note to say hi. I met Tim last year at Rhydymwyn but have only just got round to joining the bulletin board (UCET next when I track down current membership info).

Many years ago I enjoyed wandering hillsides, caves and mines...got older and continued the same but a little more seriously. For various reasons this activity stopped.

Recently I've started visiting a few mines again - walkable ones, not crawling on my (too ample) belly. I've not done any roped climbing for 30+ years and never did much that would really qualify as SRT ...maybe it's time to start!

Based in the NW.

If you met Tim and you are still keen to go caving you must be properly "hard core" B) B) B)

Howdy Doody and welcome to the Forum ....

We are out every Thursday night. Sometimes it's published here and sometimes in the private members area - you are welcome to come on any trip (give us a nudge here if you can't see the trip)

:)

Thanks for the welcome Ian. I met Tim above ground (Valley Works) not underground. Suspect he wanted to fly a quadcopter in the tunnels but he didn't admit to that ;-)

I also enjoy your videos (particularly as you don't fill them with carp music at a stupid volume).

Membership form on here is somewhat old - details still applicable?

Hi Iain,

The contact details have just been updated (we just had our AGM) and are correct.

Membership is pro-rata for the year (£20 subs and £17 insurance) but done in quarters (so if you joined today, for instance, you would only need to stump up 3/4 of all that).

You need to email the secretary (his details are on the contact page) and he'll sort it all out for you.

In the meantime, as Ant posted above, (he is the trip organiser), you are welcome to come along.

:)

No you will not have met me.
You only need to pay your insurance once. Per year.
Meets are approx 6:30 start. Will put a nice dry walk in walk out (excluding ladders). If you are free.

Right...a different Cave Ant then ;-)
This is what I thought and it does show as separate on your form...some groups don't show it like that though.

LOL. Oddly enough there are two* things that scare me...ladders and cave diving. Not bothered about height but ladders are horrible. Recent visit to a chalk mine meant about 80 foot ladder climb on the way out. New and very secure ladder but I still hated it.

I'll not know until later in the week whether I can get back on thursday so whilst I appreciate the consideration if there are other things the group need to do then organise the meet around that.



*far more than two but the others all involve other people's stupidity so don't count.

Hi Iain,

Welcome to the forum. I'm more than happy to take you somewhere that doesn't involve ladders if you're free, so just chirp up when you know your availability :)

Ant: Can I leave it up to you to suggest somewhere?

I was thinking Gors Mine - 1M crawl to get in, then walking around, pretty dry, no ladders etc.

Very kind. I dislike ladders but accept their evil, like 'gastro-pubs', can't be avoided entirely.

I'm unfit due to too much desk flying.

Essentially a SRT virgin but used to climb and can still just about tell the difference between the end of a rope and something that isn't the end of a rope.

I have wellies, chest waders, old clothes including a boiler suit that will do as an oversuit initially, caving helmet, torches.

Mud, water, ladders - "keep calm and carry on" ;-)

Squeezing through small gaps - I'd make a better plug than door?

Also come fitted with a sense of humour as standard.

Ok, I won't make this weeks trip an official beginners trip as it looks like Iain is unsure if he can attend a trip this Thursday I'm not going to put on a beginners trip. Rob, if Iain can make it then can you take the lead here and sort somthing?

Iain, if you cannot join a trip, we will be in the pub in the evening we usually arrive 9 and 10pm depending on where we have been postcode for pub CH8 8HE
