Free to a good Dales Caving Hut home
« on: October 04, 2019, 10:17:15 am »
Remember this thread with the fab video/photos of Hull Pot in flood?

https://ukcaving.com/board/index.php?topic=25363.0

Well I loved this photo and was kindly given a copy which I had printed for the kitchen wall (looks great, thank you  :thumbsup: ).  However due to Bonusprint's messing about with delivery, I've ended up with another copy - and TheBitterEnd hasn't room for it on his wall so I'm offering it to a Dales Club that wants it to display in their hut.  If you'd like it simply post on this thread and I'll choose by random.org at the end of next week (changed to Tues eve, 8th Oct)  :) :thumbsup:

It would look great on one of the walls of the best dales caving club, the Bradford Pothole Club.

According to Dave Haigh, author and past President of the BPC, the CPC is the the most illustrious caving club.

No harm in a little bit of (friendly and good-spirited) rivalry or banter between the Dales clubs. Congrats Craven, that'll look smashing on the wall of Ivy Cottage (and I guess apt given the image content that it has gone to one of the two Horton-based clubs from where you can walk up to Hull Pot area).

We're lucky in the Dales to have so many caving huts to stay at where you can have such great facilities at only about £6/night (usually less if you're a member). The prospect of camping just isn't as appealing especially over winter months!

Would someone from the Craven be able to collect the photo?

Please PM me to arrange, thanks, Pegasus

...maybe I should be asking for identification in case someone from another club turns up first  :o
