A mass attack on the Penyghent saw a pleasing variety of novel caves explored with cavers in Penyghent (plus Friday the 13th), Dale Head, and FOUL Pot. On Sunday, aided by excellent weather, we did an Alum/Diccan exchange.

A fun weekend at Bullpot Farm exploring the vastness of Easegill. We had trips into Lancaster Hole, Cow Pot, Wretched Rabbit, Pippikin, Bullpot of the witches, Aygill caverns, Lancaster Hole again and Bullpot of the witches again! All this, and home by 10 pm on Sunday.

Two bold ICCC members venture into the outside world and accidentally socialise with non-ICCC cavers. They may have also learned some cave biology.

A wild Kingsdale weekend consisting of a successful King trip and a soggy and unsuccessful Swinsto/Simpsons exchange on the Saturday, followed by an exciting never-before-contemplated pull-through/derig in Swinsto on Sunday and some excellent faff/rigging practice with ten Craven members in Heron on Sunday.

We go to Sardinia for a week, camp in Su Palu, swim in Locoli, eat risotto and generally get muddy around plentiful formations and caverns measureless to man.

The Imperial Democratic People's Republic of Caving has once again demonstrated it's superiority by conducting "democratic" elections far more convincing than many others that have taken place this year. Despite having no consitutional limits on re-election and a voting system based almost entirely on how much people have had to drink the caving club has avoided the ugly stain of autocracy by electing fresh new figureheads.

Congratulations to the new committee:

Rebecca Diss
Jennifer Ryder
Jack Halliday
Tackle Master:
James Wilson
Health and Safety Officer:
Arun Paul
Social Secretary:
Úna Barker

And also commiserations to the winners of the following awards:

Herman Herz: All occupants of the bivi during the lightning incident for the lightning incident.
For Evans' Sake: Jennifer Ryder for leading her friends into a literal river of shit and being the source of some creatively used vomit at CHECC.


The elite make their way to the SWCC along with a couple of NUCC humans for a weekend of drinking and glitter tattoos and perhaps some caving.

We (intentionally) met up with Notthingham and Exeter at the Belfry for a long night of caving games before joint NUCC/ICCC visits to Swildon's (x3), GB (x1), Easwater (x1) and Burrington Combe (x1). Sunday saw renewed bailing on the Short Round as well as photography in the abundantly decorated Manor Farm Swallet.
