• Hello From Descent

    The publication date for issue 289 is the 10th of December, meaning subscribers should receive their copies during the week leading up to that date. It is also available from caving suppliers such as Inglesport and Starless River, or from our new website

Another large collection of caving publications here. As ever, the main aim is to get these to anyone who would appreciate them. They have come from various sources and I don't want anything for them. Most are commonly available but there are a few rarities.

But . . . if there's something which is of particular interest to you, then consider making a modest donation to the Ukraine refugee appeal here: (I don't want to know what or whether you might donate but bear in mind it takes a lot of time and effort to manage these giveaways and there's usually other folk contribute time when they help with caver post. So giving a small amount in lieu of that is probably a reasonable thing to request.)

Please PM me if you'd like anything (or email me if you know my address). Collect from the Dales or we'll try for caver post.

All of the CDG Occasional publications (with the possible exception of the two duplicates, for which I'm awaiting confirmation) now claimed. The same person wants some early CDG Newsletters but not sure what until he's back off holiday. If anyone wants to be on the second dibs list meanwhile, let me know.

I can also offer Descents numbers 28, 31, 32 to who ever claimed the descents (or anybody else) as well as another copy of 33.

'Fraid the KCC Journals have now been claimed - but I'll put a copy of RR 7 on one side for you. (I have a cunning plan for how we might get it to you . . . )

Quite a lot of this material has now been claimed (The CDG Newsletters and Descents have been very popular.)

TheBitterEnd - cancel the above; I'll ask "rm128" (on this forum) to pick up your envelope when he collects stuff he wants tomorrow, along wuith Snebbit's stuff. Rm128 doesn't know this yet but I'm assured by the Snebbit that this will work!
