Short notice I know, but a few of us (Assuming the beast from the east 3 allows ;) ) will be heading up to the Dales over the easter weekend.

I will be doing trips with Dudley CC but we are small groups so if any other photographers fancied coming along you'd be more than welcome.
We haven't really planned anything yet but our trips are mostly around 6hrs with a couple of photos en route.

If interested send me a message any time up to Thursday, after this I may or may not have signal.

I gave Peter my miserable quota yesterday. I dont think he has had any more as yet so yes BUMP. He will be away for the next week if you get no reply from him. My " exhibition piece" is off for mounting. I hope there will be room for it.

So might I which all good photographers must know is intolerable.

This year should see more exhibition visitors than ever and we really need to show Gough's Cave owners what a wonderful and talented lot we really are. :-\

What a shame we have so few . We have a great chance to show the public the hidden wonders of Mendip at a new venue at Cheddar. If folk worry about the competitive side just think of it as an exhibition. Same old story. Use it or lose it.

Some real cavers somewhere on Mendip. :lol:

Up at Cheddar Caves today getting the display underway (until I ran out of velcro dots).  There is going to be a comments book and voting slips. So we managed to get the show started on the official starting date.

Popped in today on the way to Vurley. My big collage is up and most of the competition entries. Mr O'Doc says he will finish it tomorrow. A nice room for the exhibition right next to the coffee shop and an exit point for visitors to Goughs Cave. Free parking for coffee shop visitors .

Probably mentioned before, but could you remind when is it running from and to?  Stonking good effort to publicise positivity in caving in general though.

Not for me to say really but the event closes on Sat 30th June. However Gough's management might keep some items on a longer basis more reflecting local caves rather than the foreign cave posters they have up at present.
Visitors please dont forget to make comment in the visitors book and use a public vote.
