Unlikely to give SRT a go, but you never know, I might be pursuaded on the night :pinch:

Newbie trip and general mooch definitely don't include SRT so don't worry about that.

But if you enjoy what the club does and decide to join ucet then we will train you up on SRT if that was something you were interested in.

If I can do it, *anyone* can, I hate heights. Petrified is not an overstatement.

You couldn't ask for a better lot to learn SRT with.
You want me to go down *there*? On a bloody *rope*?

I hate heights *and* can be physically clumsy, don't trust my feet at all!

But a) the height is less scary when you can't see the bottom cause it's dark and
b) NewStuff is right, we are a good lot to learn with!

Well I'll never know if SRT is for me until I try it!

I'll probably prefer it to ladders!

uuummmm don't you drive trains for a living? :dry:

Ant89 - it would be great if you can make it. Hendre was my 1st trip underground with UCET, it's a great little mine! Plus if I do anything stupid, it's not too difficult for you to carry me out :blink:

Is 5.30 in Rhos OK then? if you SAT NAV LL28 4RB you can try and park outside the shop as it's de-restricted at that time of night and covered by CCTV :woohoo:

Fingers crossed someone else will see this and bring a lid & light, however, I'll chuck one of each in the van just in case so don't worry, you won't turn up and not be able to get underground, it's just my spare gear isn't as good as the club gear, but it does the Job! B)

Hi and welcome to the forum, I'm Rob. Why don't you come and meet us first? we're a friendly bunch :woohoo:

Have you been underground much or are you completely new to it? I was a complete newbie when I joined UCET and now I'm out underground at least once a week.

hiya :cheer: iv been underground plenty of times using my own rope etc but i haven't got nearly enough kit to do SRT and all the other stuff UCET do. a few weeks ago i was underground in Llanrwst and met some of your cavers, one of them was called john and i think he was from bangor, he told me to go on the website. i went to the glan y afon where it said eveyone meets up on thursdays and know one was there, it would be brilliant if you could get someone to get in contact with me to arrange giving me a lift to meet everyone. because i live in mochdre and as i dont dive at the moment it would be dificult to meet eveyone.

ahhhh, I'm assuming you're Ben then? We met underground in Llanrwst :) I'm based in Rhos on Sea so a lift would be no problem! There is a suitable trip on tomorrow night infact and I've just made a call to our chairman who is more than happy for you to come along. I've got a 2 seater van and both front seats are full tomorrow, but if you're happy rattling around in the back, you're welcome to jump in. The trip is Hendre Spar mine near Afonwen, The mine is accessed by a short ladder (approx 16ft) then a very short hands and knees bit approx 2 meters then into open spaces with about 5 more ladders throughout the mine system.

Would be great if you could make it!

PS sorry about you turning up at the pub to find no-one there :dry:
