Win a £50 Inglesport voucher!!

CAPTION COMPETITION!!

WIN A £50 INGLESPORT VOUCHER!!



I received a message recently - this is what it said:

'Hi Jane, I'm lucky enough to be in guaranteed work at the moment, doing a load of overtime and unable to spend it on the things I usually do.  Would it be of interest to you if I donated £50 toward a competition prize on the forum?  Couple of requests though...
1. This must be completely anonymous.
2. Could the money be spent in one (or more) of our few remaining caving shops?  I fear there will be none left soon and I came up with this idea as a way to support the forum, our caving shops and provide a bit of fun for the many bored cavers at the moment'.


How blummin fantastic is that??  Of course I agreed.  Inglesport was chosen to provide the voucher (so the forum will match this with a Starless River £50 voucher for the next competition as both excellent caving shops support UKC)

Thank you to the caver who sent me the message - it couldn't have arrived at a better time to cheer me up  :thumbsup:  :hug:

Post your best captions for this photograph (Thank you to Mark Burkey for taking it and Jess for yet more excellent modelling!).



Winner to be chosen by random.org of 10 captions with most likes (if not many likes, I'll choose the shortlist with help from caver who donated the prize)

Max 5 entries per member.  Closing time/date 10pm Sunday 19th April

Have fun and good luck!!

Don't forget to support your caving stores - open online!

When I were a lad the only caving huts we had to pack rope in were a flimsy tent on side of road...

Tent? You were lucky! We had a soggy cardboard box in a pothole.

The latest idea to protect the public from the site of mucky cavers. The portable caving hut allows you to change and dash straight in and out of the cave. Think Bathing Machine.

The benefits of living in a port-a-loo began to loose it’s charm with the on going supply shortages. Alternatives were found, but the decision to use 10 over 8mm was the obvious choice. The next difficulties were to explain yourself making that ‘essential’ journey just to wash some rope.

At last the long awaited Petzl changing facilities.  Spare the blushes of the villagers of Priddy and Clapham with this fully waterproof changing pod, the Petzl Shroud.

The club's secret dig was coming along splendidly. 

They'd not been able to get a vaulting horse that would fit in the back of the van, but Inglesport had come up with a couple of alternatives...
