The Journal Of The Bristol Exploration Club, The Belfry, Wells Road, Priddy, Wells, Somerset.

Editor: Robin Gray

A smaller BB this time/but in time, I hope to let everyone know about the Barbecue.  I think that this year’s event will be one to remember for many years to come.  The chariot race looks like being a rip snorter with a boating section to cool things off half way round.  After the race there will be a great feast for the survivors and supporters alike.

The Belfry improvements are now complete and cavers can change, wash and dress in the lap of luxury. We also have a more suitable library and a more secluded cooking area.

Congratulations to Tony and Jane who linked their jug handles and got married a couple weeks ago. The J'Rat’s I'm told spent some time in Greece after the big day and I understand that Tony spent a night underground.

Sunday 20th May saw a big push on sump 2 in Cuthbert’s with air pump from the surface.  More news of this later.  Also I hope to have some news concerning the big new Mendip find made by MCG.  REG is at the moment working on a 1986 cavers calendar with 13 new cartoons. Beware!  You could be the subject of one.

Lastly is there anyone living near Wells who can lend a hand with typing the BB.  Please let me know if you can help as my typing is horrible and since I have just started a graphic design studio, time is very limited. Thanks.

Till No 4.good caving, Robin
