Its no good Harry, if we are going to keep this new entrance into Draenen from being blocked, we shall need a bigger wand


The British Telecom Caving Club were beginning to regret their decision to let their oldest member come on their caving trip. He will insist on sticking to his "tried and tested" telephone pole climbing gear rather than convert to the "that new-fangled modern SRT crap"...

Couple of days to go..then watch out for another competition  :D ;)
