May be worth asking if you could put one in the outside cafe in hathersage and Pete’s eats in llanberis
I can easily manage Pete's Eats if anyone can caver post them to the BEC lot going to the Berger, failing that Jane I'm sure our paths will cross before too long
TSG member here! I'm sure we'd have no problem having a stash of the posters at the Chapel.I'll actually be in Inglesport tomorrow morning with a couple of members so could collect some if you can get any there for us?
Any chance of a few to put up around North Wales, local climbing wall, school etc etc.Cheers

If he takes a could of the larger ones, could you get them to Peak Cavern please??
Met with a nice chap at Whitescar Caves this afternoon who said he's put one of our larger posters up - chuffed at this as surely folks who have just been down a showcave and are interested in finding out more about caves and caving will find New to Caving useful??Any help getting posters in more showcaves very much appreciated (Peak Cavern should have new ones soon).Thank you
I have deposited a pile of posters at TSG. Some will make their way to Peak Cavern this week but if anyone wants to grab one for any of the other showcaves/mines then go for it.
Is it worth gett one of those QR codes on the poster so people can scan their way straight into the website?No idea how this works or what it costs, but I'm sure someone here will know.
Send one to Vicky Turner at Treak Cliff Cavern - she'll deffo put one up.Can't do it myself as I now live in France!
Do people actually use QR codes instead of typing in web addresses?I don't have a QR scanner app, and never jumped over the hurdle of downloading one when typing is perfectly acceptable.Plenty of uses in various industries for traceability and the like though...I'd be interested to know if anyone engages with them!
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!
