Revolution is in the air. The masses are weary of rampant globalisation enforced upon them by liberal elite. Too long had their voices been unheard. Democracy trumps all in the end and so, in a grand populist message to the establishment, the old guard has been swept away and a new better order has been established.
Congratulations to the new committee:
And also commiserations to the winners of the following awards:
Herman Herz: Arun Paul for obvious reasons.
For Evans' Sake: Tanguy Racine (again) for so many obvious reasons deposited around the place.
Announcement: AGM 21st March 7pm Union bar. Don't miss the election of the new committee!
We return to the Mendips for our annual baptism in Sump 1. Two teams in Swildon's on Saturday, and one in Longwood Swallet. The SMCC has a fantastic new squeeze machine which we combined with a table to create our own speleolympics in the evening. Sunday saw a trip to GB and another Swildons round trip (as well as an expedition to a tea shop).
A week long caving extravaganza. The first day exhausted our rope store with 5 caves rigged on Kingsdale; Vespers, Simpsons', Swinsto, Aquamole and Jingling. We fully explored Leck Fell with visits to Box Head, Notts 1, Lost Johns' and Death's Head. We also visited Little Hull, Gaping Ghyll and various trips through Easegill. And of course we had our annual rescue techniques training sesh.
A classic exchange to Notts 1 on Saturday, including a classic "look around in the 5m vis fog for an hour until you find the entrance". And everyone managed to exit a different way to how they entered, a true exchange. On Sunday many went to Notts 2 for a bimble up the stream and a few went to Lost Johns' for some rigging practice.
