A lovely trip to the hall of the mountain king .Followed by the clean up job afterwards in the nicest caving gear wash I've ever used. Most pictures taken by my stepson Aaron Varley except the one he's in which was me.

Sorry just to be clear is this photos taken on the caving trips at CaveFest or anywhere?
Anything I say is represents my own opinion and not that of a any club/organisation that I am a member of (unless its good of course)

Here are my photos from last Saturday's Cavefest tour around OFD2.  Does this count as two or three photos?  Most ukc readership will recognize these places, but the cave was a complete new wonder to some of the people on this trip - a whole weekend of discovery for newcomers.

Thanks to Cavefest's organisers for all their efforts gone into providing this brilliant opportunity for dozens of cavers to come together in a happy atmosphere during what turned out to be the best weather of this summer.

Photos taken during: https://www.facebook.com/events/481913319012830/

Although, as it says open to anyone based in the UK, you can post whatever you like...

& if it's still in working order, then the camera is worth c.£100 !

Just to clear up a couple of points.
Content is open. Ideally we would prefer pictures from cavefest.
Anyone can enter.
Changing of entries is only possible if the prior entries are deleted first.

We hope this helps

Seems the goal posts are moving, surely pictures from Cavefest should be used to help promote the event!

A quick answer would be to edit the original post and simply delete the photo.

You need to ask a moderator to change a post after a certain time limit has passed or other posts have been made.  This makes sense on a forum where there is usually a flow of discussion - if users removed posts after others had made comments on them it would ruin the whole thread.  Anyway I've removed the stal ceiling post for you and good luck in the comp.
