Hi all, ive been trying to work out booking huts and stuff for the coming term. SWCC is already booked for the term, so we are going to hopefully kick start the year off in Croydon (no not the place, the hut!) which is in Ystradfellte, close to Tobys favourites like bridge cave, Pant Mawr and Porth-y-ogof. Hopefully around October 15-16th.
Next is Fireworks weekend, where we are hopefully trying to keep with tradition and staying at the belfry. this is where we can see Luke getting lost on a magical tour of Bristol and Henry throwing giant wood axes at balloons. This will be November 4-5th.
SWCC and Derbyshire will hopefully follow in 2012, along with a long awaited trip down Otter Hole, which we can hopefully sort!

Details for 2011’s Hidden Earth are available. This years event is being held in Monmouth, South Wales on September 23rd-25th. Last years event was a big success, and i would strongly recommend going if you would like to know more about Caving! Because of its convenient location close to the Brecons there is no reason why we cant try and make a weekend out of it and stay in a hut. Currently SWCC is booked, however there are more close by that we could use, Westminster or Whitewalls… There is camping available on site, but this can be decided in the near future…
If there is enough interest then a hut can be booked. Please email me (mkb9) if you would like to go, also I will be sending this out as an email. Please note that the club will not be organising tickets to the event, these you can do yourself. Check there site; http://hidden-earth.org.uk/index2.html

As you are all aware, the new plan for the summer caving getaway is to visit yorkshire where this years CHECC was held and where some fine caves are found. We briefly asked people when they are not available, but i think it would be easier if we could just have anyone who is definately interested to send an email to either Mark mkb9 or Jono jol9 who are staying in Aberystwyth for the time being and have time to try and arrange a trip for everyone.
If there is a lack of enthusiasm then the expedition will unfortunately not go ahead. Currently the thinking is either in these date boundaries; Mid june – Mid July or September, but these could obviously change. Check out the photos from last years Ireland Expedition, we dont want to miss out on another chance to go!

Thanks Henry for “lending” us your house for us to trash, so that we could elect the new committee!
Take a Glance at the fresh faces in charge of the club, who will get you drunk, take your money and get you lost in a cave!
