Editor: John Williams


I have included the reports at the front of the issue so that those of you that can't be bothered with them can skip through to the articles.

Please also note the dinner booking forms at the back.  Please complete these asap and return them if you are coming. I know from my experiences last year that the organisation is a nightmare only made worse by late returns.

Anyway I hope this issue gives you all some suitable early morning, small room reading pleasure.

If not. .. you can always use it to w*** your a-*!!!!


So the last BB of the Club Year, and my last one too!  See my report for further details of this.  Things have been a bit slow at the Belfry of late, the same crowd of regular members has been around but there’s a lot of people that we haven't seen for some time .... what has happened to you all .... you are missed.

I know that Andy and Ange Cave have departed these shores for France on a permanent basis, I don't think for a minute that it's the last we have seen of them though.  I am sure you'll join me in wishing them all the best in their ventures over there.  Various members have their address details should you wish to contact them.

For my sins I will be moving back up to London shortly for Career reasons .. (yes even I have to work from time to time).  This probably means that you will see more of me on Mendip as since I have been living in Gurney Slade my visits to Priddy have become fewer.  Funny old world innit?

I know that our regular diggers have been active recently and that J-Rat continues to unearth artefacts (alien or otherwise) from Five Buddies Sink.

I have also finished my diving project in St Cuthbert’s.  Thank you to those that helped with this .... and to my critics ... I suggest you learn to read because then you would understand why I was doing it!!!

I will write up a full report of my activities for a future BB.

Also in this issue you will find Dinner Booking forms.  Thanks must go to Nigel Taylor for organising this again this year.  I did it last year and it is bloody hard work.  I hope that the attendance is worthy of the effort he has put in.

Lastly I am sorry to see Jeff Price, Mike Wilson and Hilary Wilson standing down from the committee this year.  They have all been keen and valuable members for some time and their efforts have not gone unnoticed.  I am sure the membership would echo my sentiments and thanks to them all.

Anyway that's the lot from me.  Hope to see you all soon.  Regards and Good caving ..... Jingles.
