A message from Dave Ryall: 'As you may have heard, Scoff wrote his memoirs up, and I’ve been working (with help) for some time on getting the book into print.
We are having a book launch / cavers piss-up to sell copies (see above for details).
Scoff had friends all over apart from his own clubs, and it could be they’d like a copy too.
 
It’s a right good read, and the BPC has paid for the print run (300 initially) as a donation, so all the money from sales can go to the hospice which looked after Scoff' (Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice)


One of the best and most entertaining Hidden Earth lectures I ever went to was by Scoff and Dave :)  I'm sure 'Bumbling in The Dark' will be an excellent read - hope to see you at the book launch or if you can't make it order your copy afterwards be e-mailing bumbling@gmx.co.uk.  :coffee: :)

Bought my copy at the launch several months ago but saved it for a holiday read.  What a great book - really enjoyed reading Scoff's first hand accounts of stories I already knew bits about.  A very fluent and readable style probably helped along with Dave's light touch editing.  The tragic end is not disguised but very sad none the less.  The only bit I didn't like was the revelation that Scoff voted leave - then he bloody left!

Well done all for making the book happen.
