 :thumbsup: Many thanks to Makita for offering this fabulous prize worth approx. £350

 - Makita are evening throwing in a set of drill bits!! 

All the technical detail you could ever need to be found here:

The photo shown is of the set Badlad has just purchased so the prize may differ slightly - however it gives you the idea  ;D

What caver or caving club/group doesn't want a shiny new drill as part of their caving kit? Bolt placement, digging even great for hut repair or heaven forbid, non caving days doing DIY!

To enter, write a trip report under the relevant 'Trip Reports' board - UK, Abroad, Digging etc.  Please put 'Makita Drill' in the title - for example 'Makita Drill - A day's digging in Mendip'.  Then post a link to your report on this thread.

A shortlist of the best reports will be compiled at the end of May by Badlad and myself and a winner chosen from that short list chosen at random on the 31st May after 10pm.  To be included on the shortlist remember including photographs is an advantage and we're looking for reports cavers will enjoy reading, be they factual, humorous, entertaining, gripping etc.  Reports by cavers new to the sport or the more experienced, from areas in the UK or further afield, rope trips or digging - all are welcome, just please trips that are new to UKC.

Time to get underground and then get writing - good luck!!  ;D

 :thumbsup: :thumbsup: Many thanks to SpanSet & Teufelberger for offering this great prize :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

100's of cavers will be attending Eurospeleo 2016 in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales this Summer.  Many of the areas finest caves will be rigged and many a fabulous caving trip will be had - excellent!

However, what will folks do on their days off / rest days??  What is there to do in the area for non caving friends and family whilst the cavers are underground??  Here's where you can help - and maybe win yourself or your club/group some shiny new rope!!

Post your suggestion for non caving attractions; places to visit; walks; pubs, cafes, restaurants and ideas for what to do when not underground at Eurospeleo 2016.  Not familiar with area? No problem - do some research and get posting.  Hopefully this thread will help the organisers at Eurospeleo 2016 with some ideas and cavers will come up with some informative and interesting ideas.... :smartass:

We're looking for photos, information, maps, links etc - more info the better.

Jon Beavan, owner of The Dalesbridge Centre, where Eurospeleo 2016 is being held will be choosing the winner - closing date is on Saturday 14th May (after 10pm)

Good luck!!
