The British Telecom Caving Club were beginning to regret their decision to let their oldest member come on their caving trip. He will insist on sticking to his "tried and tested" telephone pole climbing gear rather than convert to the "that new-fangled modern SRT crap"...

Apologies for the delay in choosing a winner - I'd love to say I've been busy partying the night away over New Year, however I haven't.....

My favourite captions are:

Boy Engineer: “Turns out these no-drop Christmas trees aren’t waterproof”

Steve Clark: "When it floats, I'll be Rose and you can be Jack"

Crickleymal: One of us is going to have to go and change. We've come in matching outfits.

Martin Wright: We're not the tree fellers - there's only two of us.

Brains: This place rarely floods, just the odd bit of straw gets washed in....

cfmwh: If we pull this out, we can call it Jenga Pot......no, wait.........shit!

T Pot 2: Can't remember this trunk route😯

Voidifopened: Two of Santa's little helpers delivering Cerberus's Christmas Present.

Mark: Its no good Harry, if we are going to keep this new entrance into Draenen from being blocked, we shall need a bigger wand

Over to random.org....

1st Prize goes to Mark - congratulations - one light is now yours!

2nd prize goes to T Pot 2 - and one Berger Book for you

3rd prize goes to Boy Engineer who also wins a Berger Book.


Thanks so much to all who entered, some ingenious and funny captions - as ever.

We're in for a tough couple of months I reckon and if the last lockdowns are anything to go by the forum will be busy - so every post, competition entry etc that entertains your fellow caver is great, thank you  :hug:

Winners - please PM me to arrange getting your prizes to you  ;D
