    Has Anyone ever lost a welly?

    I lost a welly at the end of Roly Poly passage in Peterson. You can still see it down the rift. Funnily enough, I'm clearly not the first person to do this, as there's a second welly visible down there with mine!! It wasn't the caving out that was the worst part but the walk back to the farm...

    Caving club fun ranking

    I resent the claim that CUCC is less fun that DUSA. I would also argue that we are usually more fun in an evening than NUCC. I would like to place us firmly in line with Bangor for "will stay up late and sing/play caving games but won't get naked unless heavily provoked"

    Cave Rescue Procedures (continued)

    I think it's somewhat unreasonable not to consider applicants on their individual merits. In the thehungrytroglobite's case, she lives with her partner, who I know to be a very active member of CRO. Therefore, it's hard to understand why it would be an inconvenience to have them travelling to...

    Slovenia – Best Caving Region and Where to Stay

    I’m in the early stages of planning a CUCC trip to Slovenia in late July.

    Does anyone know who to contact to arrange a key for Grotte de St Marcel? Hoping to do the through trip from Aven Despeysse when CUCC visit the Ardeche next month but my lack of French knowledge is making arranging access difficult
