Spotted a poster in Redpoint Worcester on Thursday.
They're even being used for orienteering on permanent courses now - scant the code on the checkpoint to record when you were there.
CHECC 2018 - NUCC's EntryWe do have images, but I'm struggling to upload them at moment! Will try again later after lectureWhen we saw this challenge we thought this would be the perfect opportunity for us to take advantage of the old Welsh name for Nottingham - Ty'r Ogofedd. Which, nicely, translates to 'House of Caves'.The first place we tried putting up a 'New to Caving' poster was obviously the city's cave attraction, which to our surprise, didn't allow us to put one there. They did, however, tell us to try the National Justice Museum, who surprisingly took one off us to stick in their cafe! The receptionist also convinced this serious looking person in a silly hat to pose for a photo. As we wandering, we happen to pass the Nottingham Contemporary Art Gallery. We thought, what the hell, we may as well try and convince some people who aren't scientists or engineers to come caving! Sadly, they don't allow posters here, but said if we came back with flyers that would be ok..! Our next destination was the local bouldering centre. In typical climber fashion we were met with blank, emotionless faces that told us, in around about "What even is caving, please don't make our building muddy" sorta way, to please leave!Not disheartened, we headed to the pub. Along the way we passed by Nottingham's most famous resident and gave him a message to send on his arrow.The pub we went to was Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, oldest in England apparently, which is conveniently built into a few sandstone caves. Here, we were told we could leave a poster on the menu table, though apparently it's likely to get ruined by the Friday crowd. Hopefully, one of them will join a caving club before that happens.As we were moving onto our next pub, we happen to walk past Nottingham City College. Ryan had the brilliant idea of seeing if we could put one in there. We asked security and they said we could put one up for now and they would check with reception in the morning if it can stay there. Fingers cross, the poster will reach out to young adults at the collage who wouldn't otherwise even known caving was a thing!The final place we tried was on of the artsy pubs, The Malt Cross. We can try and get some cultured people to join our NUCC. The pub said it was fine so we placed the poster by the rest of the notices and flyers - you never know, we may convince someone who's interested in pottery or embroidery to come caving!
