Happy New Year!!

2017 was a busy year for UKC with over 2.1 million page views, blimey :)

Many interesting subjects were discussed, here are just a few examples:

Cavers love to hear about exploration - Any new finds?

Caving dogs:

How many cavers are there?

If the Three Counties were Mont Blanc

Caving with diabetes:

Events were publicsied - the launch of Northern Caves for example:

Concerns over pubs - The Martons is thankfully back open and thriving:
and hopefully all's getting back to normal at The Hunters:

Tales of cleaning up our caves. The Alum Pot clean up with some fab photos:

Bolting of Rowter Hole:

'dem bones, 'dem bones - stopped the digging at Eldon

Didn't even know there were glow worms in the UK!

Digging - things that should be looked at again - no wonder this was a popular topic:

Break throughs :)

Croesor Mine warning:

A number of threads on Ogof Draenan - take your pick.  Discussed in depth.

A return to Reservoir Hole:

Tankard Shaft dig - so popular.  Any news?

Caving songs - tra la la


The rope sponsorship to expeditions led to some excellent threads:

Commercial caving:

The deadly croll:


Revival of a great topic - best Yorkshire Photo to date:

Welsh Wezzit - soon will catch up Mendip Wezzit!

Adventures Underground:

There are so many more - thank you to everyone who started a new topic  :thumbsup:

Highlights this year for me included:

In June was launched and we were delighted with the positive response.  Top priority for early 2018 is to update the contacts page - apologies to those clubs who have asked to be listed - we will be on it asap, promise!

Visiting Westminster representing BCA at mend our Mountains:

Being photographed by Chunky in Easegill - it's a wonderful photograph I just love - thank you Mark & Jess Burkey.

Not so fun - receiving messages berating the forum and only to see the same folks posting merrily away on facebook:  :confused:

However if you can't beat them.....the UKC facebook page now has 2100 'likes'.  Love it or loathe it, there's no denying it's a great way of promoting the forum.  Sharing and liking UKC posts is a good way of supporting the forum, thank you.

Failed at:  Getting UKC mugs to folks I've promised them to - will try to do better in 2018!  :coffee:

Thank you to every caver who has posted on the forum and of course to the Moderators for all their help and advice. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Have a wonderful 2018, all the best, Pegasus & Badlad
