Once again a bi-monthly B.B. - do I hear odd murmurings of discontent, or 'I told you so!'  Will it yet again be a subject for discussion at this year's A.G.M?

I see that my gentle powers of persuasion are about as useless as your promises to write something for the B.B.

This needs words, not promises.


Tuska, -where is the article on Iceland?

Dave, Brian and Jane, did you really visit the Vercours?

(I'll not harass Stu or Colin - they've done their bit this year)

Spandy Arrow, stop telling us how awful the bottom of Longwood is, and write it down. AND, while you're at it, how about the Lionels survey notes/description as well.

Now you're settled into your new house, John, what about the notes on care and maintenance of tackle?

You see, there's a whole B.B. full there, if only I had it here in writing!


John and Sue Dukes new phone number is not as written in the last B.B.  That is the number of the telephone box over the road (Sorry, Ken!) Their number is actually Shepton Mallett 4815.

Karen Jones and Gary Childs should by now be making their way about the United States by Greyhound, bicycles or thumbs, or whatever other means they can muster.  At some time during their ten week tour they hope to drop in on Bowling Green, Kentucky, for the 8th International Congress of Spelaeology, which is being held at Western Kentucky University.

Chris Smart is currently in Nigeria, on an 8 - 10 week tour surveying some vast un-trodden tract of wilderness so the locals can despoil it with power lines.  After the work is over he intends to amble his way back through that region of Africa, so we'll expect some interesting news from him in the near future.

STONE MINES: Anyone wishing to visit Stone Mines in Wiltshire, Avon or Somerset may like to contact Mike Breakspear or Nick Holstead, who will be happy to help.
