A night to remember (or not, depending on how much you drank). Despite strong efforts from RON to spoil the elections, common sense prevailed and new figureheads have been elected. Many campaign promises (true and false) were made, including but not limited to, "animal shaped potato waffles, not hashbrowns", "most of my job will be delegation" and "I want to give back to the club, quite literally, oh wait, not literally". Other memorable things were said, including "I now have the power to delete the website" and "everything is fine".

A glorious weekend caving on Leck fell featuring trips down Lost Johns, Boxhead and Shuttleworth. Also making an appearance were unexpected sunshine and Thai red curry.[object Event]


A classic weekend in the Mendips, featuring cider, caves, cider, caving games, cider and The Incident.


A wet weekend in which every other club in the Dales also decided to go to Mason Gill. Much faff ensued, along with some caving. The results so scarred many that they recuperated in Inglesport whilst only two people went caving on Sunday.

An excellent winter tour featuring lots of food, caving, caving games, and fine company. Sunday saw us in a huge range of caves on Kingsdale, with Gaping Ghyll (five entrances on Monday!), a relaxing Valley Entrance/ Notts 2 combo on Tuesday, Easegill on Wednesday, Masongill on Thursday and Lost Johns' on Friday!


A wet weekend in the Dales. On Saturday, we stayed near Ingleborough with a trip to Gaping Gill Main Chamber to see the waterfall in full force, and another outing to probe the depths of Hurnel Moss Pot. On Sunday, a smaller team walked to Sell Gill holes; the normally dry fossil route provided an enjoyable, wet trip to the impressive and well watered main chamber.


A disgustingly competent trip into Notts Pot saw teams down the Centre, Left, and Adamsons'. We all go to the exchange point and no one ran out of rope or forgot any vital bits of equipment. No, really. On Sunday we bimbled back and forth in a surprisingly dry Notts 2. The scaffolding was appraised as unsafe by a civil engineering student.[object Event]


The first pilgrimage to Greenclose of the year. We rigged all of West Kingsdale on Saturday (or near enough) with trips top Aquamole, Jingling, Bull, and Yordas. On Sunday we picked off the stragglers of Saturday's assault with a trip into Heron and a Swinsto pull-through.


The one with the inaugural treasure hunt, fun with Notts, and copious numbers of people in the OFD system.


A manic first trip with 22 cavers heading to South Wales. Classic trips into Ogof Fynnon Dddu on Saturday. OFD and Porth Yr Ogof along with the more esoteric Ogof Fechanon on Sunday!
