Editor: G. Wilton-Jones

May I take this opportunity to apologise for the late issue of this August B.B., and offer the excellent excuse that I've been caving which is what we're all about, isn't it.  Oh yes, a little bit of drinking as well, but you all know what Euro-fizz is like.

Bob Hill has promised an article about our stay in the Mont Blanc region. He and Jem successfully reached Mont Blanc summit, along with 288 other people, and there are many other tales to tell.  I'll give you all my version after I've read Bob's!

We should also have something on the 600 metre + through trip from Tanne du Bel Espoir to the Grotte de la Diau, canoeing down the Ardeche, and brief mentions of Orgnac and Cocaliere.

Also in next month's B.B., which should be out for the dinner, transcripts or extracts of letters from Blitz, recently returned from Nigeria, Karen and Gary in the States, and Big Jim, who is now going to stay out there a further two or three years. A short run down on the B.C.R.A. conference, more about the Manor Farm dig, how Walsall may go the way of many Florida homes and disappear down a hole, plus book reviews, plus all the latest news I can gather.

Bassett.

P.S.  BRING THIS WITH YOU TO THE A.G.M... .. and please read it beforehand!
