It's that time of the year when the old, broken, and decrepit cavers are packed up in big bundles of tatty rope and carefully archived at the back of expo stores awaiting a time when science can restore their minds and knees. The best and brightest new cavers have stepped up to the mark, keen to guide the club ever greater depths of competence and excellence.
Congratulations to the new committee:
And also commiserations to the winners of the following awards:
Herman Herz: Bhavik "My Wellies Are My Crumple Zone" Lodhia for a brief attempt at flight.
For Evans' Sake: Tanguy Racine for unearthing a foul plague in an ill-advised excavation of the Bivi and succumbing to it's effects repeatedly whilst underground.
On Saturday we had eventful exchange between It's a Cracker and Boxhead Pot, with a splinter team heading to Rowten. On Sunday we braved the strong streamway in Notts II.
The sun rises, the sun sets, and Imperial visit the Mendip Hills but once a year. This year we had four (count 'em) elite teams tackling various permutations on getting wet in Swildon's, and on Sunday one cracked team went back there, whilst the more sensible members of the club visiting Eastwater or GB.
An incredible documentary video put together by Tanguy Racine accurately depicting life on the New Zealand expedition. It's got peppers, it's got chickens, it's got everything.
A glorious weekend of caving, with two classic trips to Lost Johns' and Notts II. Torrential rain made the route through Monastery impassable, but we had a complex and rewarding exchange deep inside the bowels of the earth, before emerging to a new caving meal, shakshuka. Sunday saw us in Notts II, which was surprisingly unflooded.
