    Desperate for Outdoor 1st Aid renewal - anywhere!

    I have inadvertently forgotten (just too damned busy) that my 1st aid certs are due to expire in 2 days.  That wouldn't be a problem if my IRATA ticket didn't depend on them, and I wasn't using said ticket in the next week abroad for a very H&S conscious client....Sigh.  Anyone know of anywhere...

    Super fatty oversuit

    Anyone getting rid of a super fatty oversuit in any (reasonable) condition?  I'm wearing a warmbac XL that is too tight around my very low centre of gravity (ahem) and I can't move my chubby eastern European legs as effectively as I would like.  I figure the only way to get better and stronger...

    Runoff water disposal into caves - guidance and legislation?

    I'm wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of any guidance or legislation on the disposal of runoff water into caves as an engineering design?  I can't find anything besides ecological guidance and I'm sure there must be something regarding the geotechnical or broader environmental...

    Pridhamsleigh Cavern Crack update

    Just to update on this, I did install monitoring pins, and have been checking them regularly.  Please don't spend a lot of time standing under this feature in Bishop's Chamber - the monitoring pins are obvious, and shouldn't be touched.  After a 4 month period of monthly monitoring visits with...

    List of contacts for clubs?

    I was wondering if there was any comprehensive, computer friendly, spreadsheet or list for email/other electronic contacts for uni and non-uni clubs?  How does BCA keep this data for collation/distribution/sorting, etc.?  Just thinking for next year's Hidden Earth there MUST be an easier way to...
