As mentioned by Badlad on the Ireby-Rift connection and just seen the following from the DCA minutes:“The Three Counties Ultimate Through Trip from Large Pot through to Top Sink was discussed, with a view to BCA branding the event and providing funding towards it. Council voted to approve the proposal in principle but a more detailed plan is required to council.”Does anyone have any details? Would be really interested in hearing about the logistics involved.The “pool” of prospective suitors must surely be very small ??I would imagine alot of stars would need to align for this to come off ??Ian
I note that the individual/group reps do no have contact details on there, but some hold multiple roles (myself included), and at least some are very active on this forum
BCA could communicate with its members more.
Is membership renewal going well? If yes, great spread the good news, if not encouraging folks to renew would be a good idea.
Have seen elsewhere offers of yoga via zoom for CHECC funded by BCA. Brilliant idea, tell cavers, good PR for BCA as anything to support student caving is excellent. I for one would be interested, what about for non student cavers? Great way for BCA to provide something of value to cavers whilst we're in lockdown.
More caving news that could be publicised more widely: GPF funding applications close on the 28th of February.
What about the newsletter?
Is anything going on in the background about the problems student caving clubs must surely have had recruiting new members? Not sure what but folks might have some ideas, a worry for some clubs I'm sure
Obviously, this has been a tough time for many and not being able to go caving will have affected different people in different ways. The mood seems to be turning more optimistic in the country, now would be a good time for some positive messaging from BCA - just to make cavers feel better and raise a smile if nothing else.

I don’t think hoping they also hold a contactable role is quite enough. Is there any reason why group and individual reps shouldn’t have a BCA email address in the same way as the officers? Apologies if I’m missing something and their contact details are elsewhere on the site.
In reply to Ed W - I was just thinking this needs filming as per one of Sid's films.If filmed well it could be one one for Banff nit just Kendal film festival
This is exactly the kinds of things that have been mentioned and I’m sure Russell and the group will come back to council with.It is very early stages in the planning of this, and so I think it’s easy to get overexcited in either direction for it.
