Will do  ;)

Though turns out my 'broken camera' today was due to putting the battery onto charge but not plugging the charger in - doh :-[

To follow, some shots taken on my phone - if any one else has any, please do share  (y)

As requested by Jane, some pics of the last couple of days with my Dutch cave diving friend Anton, who flew in for 3 days caving. Didn't take any pictures in Notts 2 on Saturday as that was a warm up ;-)

Gaping Gill and Kingsdale Master Cave.... :beer:

OK, so it may have rained a little over the past two days - however remember, caves are made by water, water is made by rain..... :)

wl


So what better than an afternoon of lectures - a great selection from Frank Pearson - Dales Roundup, Roo Walter's - 3D laser scanning Project, Carsten Peter's fab photography, Eric's French trip to China and Gavin Newman's filming masterclass...enjoyed them all - thank you, all.

wl


The rain lashed down and the wind blew - the marquee was bellowing and the screen wobbling - particularly amusing whilst listening to the invite to Austrailia for Speleo 2017

wl


Wonder if they succeeded - the cider ran out.....

wl


Rain finally stopped and the party tent lit up the night....

wl


It was rock night.....

wl


;)

Please do post your photos of Eurospeleo on here folks.  Facebook posts will soon be 'lost' as news feeds scroll down - the forum will hold memories for years to come  (y)
