Norman Flux - Whats he ever done on Grit?
« on: November 20, 2006, 10:13:02 am »
Here's the answer....

Legendary caving activist Norman Flux, known for his amazing parties, has recently been spotted on a rare gritstone caving trip.

It was quite nippy yesterday, hence the blueish tinge to his face.

 :lol:

absolutly convinced I saw them pulling out of the bottom of our road this weekend. Does he drive a red car.

Just out of the corner of my eye I thought  "has that guy got a paper mask on his head".

To quote the president of South Wales CC

"Anyway what's your bloody name.  Norman sludge?  Hmmmm  Who let you in the club anyway?  Now who drank all my wine?  Hmmmm"

With praise like that I'm surprised you need to ask!

Norman has been a member of SUSS since the extinction of the dinosaurs.
In fact there is an unwritten rule in the club that once you finish/ drop out of your degree you must move in to Norman's and become a rope access worker.

Opps maybe i should say that in case any of our freshers read and feel a sudden urge to stop caving....

Indeed Norman is widely known.

He's immortalised in the Forest of Dean as the dog skeleton in Slaughter Stream Cave is named after him - he restarted the dig there in the 1980s I believe.

He must also have amazing powers of persuasion as they used a famous counterweight system there to get the spoil out - imagine dustbin size container connected to a hardy soul at the the top of a ladder in a tree.
The one thing to remember about an adventure is that if it turns out the way you expect it to, it has not been an adventure at all.
