First Social

Hi guys, remember to come along to our first social of the year this Tuesday 27th september. If you are unsure where to go then check this map out! The socials are held every Tuesday at 9pm starting at The Fountain. We are normally downstairs in the lounge area near to the caving photos. The Fountain is home to the caving challenge which some might suggest is an initiation, however the committee will show how its done first of all!

A small group will meet freshers at the porters lodge reception at around 8 this tuesday and next, and another group in front of spoons at around 8.30.

Come along for a pint or two and meet us!

Provisional Weekend Trips for 2011

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!

Hidden Earth 2011

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

Yorkshire Expedition 2011

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!

AGM 2011

Hey Guys, the time has come for the Caving Club Committee elections, 2011!

Hopefully you get the idea, but if you want to run for a position on the committee give me an email or a text so we can see who is running for what. At the AGM, people running for positions can have a little speech and give us a quick insight into why they want to be president, treasurer etc.

We do all the voting on the night, so as long as you turn up to the AGM you can run for a position.

The current location of the AGM is Tan Y Bwlch beach (The one beyond the Aber Harbour for you basic folk), However, this may change depending on the weather, to which Luke Chester will develop a PLAN B.

***PLAN B***

Its going to rain pretty heavy tommorrow night so camping on the beach would be pretty shit and everyone would get wet pretty quick. Lucky for us we have the amazingly generous Henry who has donated his flat for the AGM.

His address is 64 North Parade and his name is written on the doorbell. Henry’s flat is really easy to find as its on the main road at the bottom of the hill into town form uni. If your coming from uni then head into town and it is just past little spar, and over the road on the right.

As there wont be a fire (unless we burn henrys things but he might get angry…), i suggest that everyone eats before coming as there wont b space to cook food.

If we get there for about 8ish then it give people who had exams even more time to relax and eat and stuff

The only thing you need is plenty of alcohol and if anyone wants to donate some crisps or something to nibble on while AGMing it would be much appreciated. bIf anyone has the will power after the agm then we might go to the pub so bring some money just in case :)

Good Luck with the elections guys! Get running for them positions and good luck with your exams!

Positions:
President
Secretary
Social Secretary
