It does not take a genius to work out why [The Cave Conservation Handbook] review has got on the BCA ?to-do list? right now. BCA needs robust arguments for its position when its credibility is put on the line by recreational cavers pulling on the levers that the law provides to them so as to carry out their sporting activities unimpeded by a national governing body pursuing restrictive policies that hinder participation in the very sport that this organisation exists to facilitate and promote.

Martin Laverty said:There is a report in the latest Cambrian Caving Council newsletter [ http://www.cambriancavingcouncil.org.uk/pdf/newsletters/July2014.pdf ] that:
"Chairman Andy Eavis stated at the June AGM that he ?cannot see how the CRoW Act does not apply to caving?."
Can anyone confirm this statement in the absence, as yet, of any minutes being available on the BCA website?
I am not aware of seeing any such publication from the CSCC beyond what is on the website. I'm not sure if it's a good idea or not, or even needed as such, as i think the member clubs tend to disseminate what comes from the CSCC meetings via their own mediums for communication with their membership. All those on the regional committees are volunteers and with the levels of public scrutiny the Cambrian CC have just got on here for theirs, it doesn't encourage others to do the same really...NigR said:Does CSCC not produce a newsletter then, Estelle?
Do you think it would be a good idea if they did?
No response equals been away all weekend (at my brother's stag do as it happens). Just got back. Sorry for not being permanently available. To answer your question, I'm not sure I "enjoyed" it, but it was useful to read about various pieces of news.NigR said:
