I'm doing a short talk about caving in aid of the Nasio Trust at 1200 on the 8th. My niece works for them and talked me into it.  It's free and you can sign up via Eventbrite 

It's intended for a general audience, not directly for cavers but if you having nothing else to do...  (it will be recorded and available on their YouTube Channel

Sorry about the title, their choice, not mine.

We've run a variety of competitions during lockdown to keep cavers entertained. 
Thank you to all who have joined in so far  :thumbsup:

Hopefully, not long to go now before competitions can be about recent caving trips ;D

With Thanks to Mark Wright and the UKC competition prize bundle for the caving equipment shown:

3 XL T-shirts (black) & 1 Large patterned one.
A harness which is 2013, may be Mark can tell us more about it.
1 helmet which is ex display so has been 'used' but in great condition.
1 PIXA 2 light
1 x 15 litre tackle bag

Theme of this competition is 'Where did that cave passage/pitch name come from?'

To enter, simply post on this thread with a favourite cave passage/pitch name and the explanation behind it.

The more obscure/interesting the better.

3 entries person.  Shortlist to be chosen by me then over to

Closing date Sunday 4th April at 10pm.

Good luck!!  ;D
