If you are introducing people to caving as a job and you fail even to mention club caving, are you really doing your job properly? Club caving is a major part of caving and will remain so. If you pretend it doesn't exist you're failing your clients.
The thread was jogged by attending the CSCC virtual meeting on Monday evening and hearing from the training officer that an intended training event failed to occur due to people signing up for it not turning up after a night on the piss, which seems substantively evidential in supporting my view, does it not.
It's the Cave Diving Group 75th Anniversary dinner this weekend. It'll be my first night with no childcare responsibilities for over 18 months and I expect to have a few drinks and catch up with friends I haven't seen for ages. I don't expect to go caving the next day. Is this the kind of thing you are against Chris? If so, perhaps you should direct you criticism at the wedding industry as I'd be sure a much higher percentage of weddings result in hangovers than nights at a caving hut!
When you say under 16's do you mean under 18's or are 16-18 year olds in another category? I remember this distinction was made at Charterhouse but I didn't like to ask them what it meant. I am a little confused by some of the other comments made above on the matter.Cheers
Yes, that is what I was trying to get straight myself. As I read it there is no distinction in law that makes anyone 16-18 and different from an under 18. Or is there?This is then just a distinction made by a club or ACB? Which I guess they are entitled to do or is that discriminatory?
