ANNOUNCEMENT: Competitions at Northern and Southern CHECC 2019


Did someone say prizes? Hut nights at huts all around the country I here you say?

We have some competitions coming up at Northern and Southern CHECC so without further hesitation here they are!

Fresher Trip Reports:

Recently started caving this year? Let us know about your favourite trip so far! Did you get a good soaking on the 20-foot ladder in Swilodn?s? Did you get back to the hut at 3AM after a Gaping Gill epic? Did Trident and Judge in OFD make you decide your uni?s caving club is the club for you? Write a short report on the relevant thread below (make sure you included your club)!

Which club should head south and why?

Quite often clubs can get into a routine of only visiting one particular region! An attempt to try and get around this we want know what clubs should uproot their home region and head down south or up north and why! One club from the North and one from the South with the best reason to why they need to get out of the house so to speak will win free hut nights at the Belfry (BEC) and Greenclose (NPC) respectively.

Feel free to nominate your own club or another club from any region you think should win the nights!

Photography Competition:

Best photo from the photography workshops! Get your camera ready, give some poor sod a flashgun and tell them to stand under a waterfall for half an hour while you aim to get a photo worthy to be on the cover of Decent!

One Year BEC Membership:

Is someone in your club graduating soon? Are they ready to enter the world of actual grown up caving? Who do you think deserves a free one year membership of the infamous BEC? Nominate a worthy student caver on the this thread and let us know why they deserve membership of the BEC!


There maybe a few more prize to come too, so keep your eyes peeled  ;)

Thanks to the sponsors for their kind prize donations!

Cheers and see you all soon,
(CHECC Sec.)
