CHECC Clubs, for details on how to enter, read on.....

The 'Grand Prize' competition is being held to benefit student caving - therefore the majority of competition entrants should be current students rather than alumni.

In order to qualify to enter the competition each club must:

A)  Post on the thread 'Our Club and Freshers Season 2016' tell your fellow caver about your club and experiences of Freshers Season 2016. 

      Club history, famous alumni, current activities, training, expeditions etc, etc.  Student Clubs play an important role in introducing people to caving - how many new cavers joined your club this year, how did you encourage students to try caving?? etc, etc.

 The best write up, as judged by Badlad and Pegasus wins 10 points, the runner up 5 points.  One entry per club and posted by 10pm, Saturday 26th November.

B)  The second requirement for entry into the 'Grand prize' is for each club to 'Like', 'Comment' and 'Share' on the 'Grand prize' post pinned to the top of the UKC Facebook page.  Don't forget to mention your Club in the comment!

The Club that scores the highest number of points - wins! Here's how to score more points:

1)   Write a trip report and post on UKC under 'Trip Reports'.  The report heading should include the Club's name so we kno
