Just a thought about the pub meet, I think we have to have someone’s name
down for the pub meet in order to make sure somebody goes! In which case
maybe they should chose the pub (apart from Jason of course 😊😊).

Yes it is a shame about the drink-driving problem but so it goes, can't
stand in the way of progress! Kendal would seem as good as anywhere and the
jolly old Riflemans not a bad option either, but I wonder if moving the
location about a bit might make things a bit fairer.... But that might just
be too complicated.

It appears to work for me too, Thanks Chris – great effort.
All of this sounds to me like a lot of good sense. Count me in. I’d
prefer a Friday night for a pub meet, but I’ll be flexible. I’d like to
meet in Kendal for drink driving reasons.
Providing I’m not alone, I’ll join in any new member meets if I can fit

Ok, the new group works!
Having been away a couple of weeks and tried to follow the conversation,
I think I must have missed some of it, so apologies if this repeats
comments I haven't seen...
Miranda (I think it was her) said:
"*If we did an annual skeleton meets list, allocating the first
Wednesday of every month to a designated leader willing to coordinate a
meet around anyone who contacted them but particularly anyone new, there
would always be someone to pass potential new members too.*
* I’ve had a think and there are at least 12 of us who could do this that
I know, and I don’t know all the new people**😊** so it wouldn’t be too
much for anyone one person.*
* Also it got me to thinking lots of clubs meet once a month in a pub,
could this work for us, maybe every third Wednesday (doesn’t have to be a
Wednesday of course). Where potential members could come and longer serving
members could catch up.....this may well lead to further trips being
Sounds like a good idea. Of course, the designated person would have to
commit to being available on their slot or else find someone to take it for
Presumably then other Wednesdays, and weekends, would have to be arranged
ad-hoc by anyone who felt the urge - or, of course, could be arranged in
the monthly pub meet (I'm liking the idea more as I think about it...) -
the only possible drawback would be getting permits at short notice, but
this does seem to be easier these days.
As far as new members are concerned, there are (broadly) 3 types: a) new
to caving, non-SRT trip, b) new to SRT, needs training, c) new to the club
but competent. I'd be happy taking a) or c) out, but would not be
comfortable with b) unless there were other rope monkeys to do hand-holding.

Some of you may have found difficulties with the Yahoo email group. The
issues with Yahoo seem to be getting worse so as previously advised I have

I will leave the Yahoo group up for a short while as a fall-back but I
