    Caving in a hall ideas please

    That's awesome but I have a day job too so time and cardboard might not be on my side... Definitely something to aspire too though!

    Caving in a hall ideas please

    Thank you Keith. Thanks for reminding me about this video. It's great. I found it a while ago on YouTube. Our hall has wifi so we should be able to stream it. Thank you.

    Caving in a hall ideas please

    Thanks everyone. That artificial cave looks very familiar. I think it was at Ingleton's overground underground event one year. I misjudged my dimensions being heavily pregnant at the time.🤔 I will email the BCA using that address to think about hiring it for camps. In the meantime I will get...

    The Rescue Film

    I couldn't get to Kendal MFF and had intended to download the Rescue to watch soon with other cavers but that does not seem to be an option. Is there likely to be any more showings of the film please or, failing that, is it likely to be released as a DVD please? We look forward to still watching...

    Bear Grylls on tv

    Hello. I haven't posted for years due to a recent lack of caving activity but have just watched Bear Grylls on ITV in the Dales. Argh! How was that responsible caving? It is totally giving out the wrong message in my opinion. Not wearing a helmet and going underground in dreadful weather and...
