Cambridge University Caving Club

Newsletter --- 3 June 1997


Apparently there was a bit of a sad turn out at last Thursday's lunch --- all having lunch with the Queen Mum? --- no excuse. Andrew wants you all to come and visit him this week... and eat all his food! Here's the directions again:

Andrew lives in room C7, Bishop Bateman Court, Thomson's Lane. Thomson's Lane is first right after the bollards on Bridge Street (heading out), or left just before the bollards (heading in!). BBC is the yellow and black mockswedish extravaganza on the righthand corner at the crossroads; ascend by the hairdresser's and whack the appropriate buzzer. Time is 1-2PM as usual.

(Sorry I didn't go either - sitting behind my computer day dreaming)


I thought I wasn't going to write a newsletter this week but Jeremy sent this weekend trip report to me this morning so here it is (albeit brief and to the point):

They went down Hammer. The entrance collapsed, but they still managed to get in. It was bloody hard. Duncan & a friend didn't fit through Stemple rift. Sam, Tony, Becka and Julian got through and almost to the bottom (they didn't do the last pitch). It took 6hrs (for those who got through). Sam feels very bruised.

Well, it sounds like fun! Just the kind of report which makes you wish you hadn't wasted a sunny weekend above ground.
