Hi folks,

Thursday trip this week is to do some bolting work in the shafts behind Boydy's ranch. You will need to be SRT competent for this trip as entrance is a 100ft shaft.

MEET TIME: 6:30-45pm
MEET POINT: Boydy's Ranch aka Bryn Hyfred farm, Brynford.
EQUIPMENT NEEDED: Helmet and lamp, caving suit/overalls, gloves, wellies, SRT GEAR, change of clothes.

This is new ground worth exploring.

For those who are not SRT competent or do not fancy dangling on a thread, there are two other trips.

NON SRT TRIP 1: Belgrave, Llanferres. General mooch around the passageways.
MEET TIME: 6:30-45pm
MEET POINT: Lay-by between Llanfferres and Llanarmon yn lal turn off ( A494 ).
Standard caving gear required.

NON SRT TRIP 2: Help Doug set up for UCET fest.
MEET TIME: When you get there
MEET POINT: Doug's house/field.

Please indicate which trip you will be on.
Regards,
Steve.

Not a trip, but Doug has asked for help setting up for his party if anyone free.

Hoping to dig a big hole for a temporary toilet and wash basin to empty into, Mick is hoping to put up a zip line from 1pm onwards, and other stuff to do.
I may try to get the electric supply to the BBQ area in the field.

Due to short staffing I am going to have to work late so I am unlikely to make it underground. If anyone is going to Belgrave, please say so.

I plan on going Boydy's but if Doug is desperate for a helping hand I don't mind going to Dougs.

I'll be at Llanferres at 6.30 unless nobody else is going, in which case I'll go to Boydy's just in time for the pub...
I'm a very busy person

It would appear no one else is going to Belgrave ....
