Here we are again; it seems such a short time ago since the last one!! !

Since then, we have had an excellent stomp, which raised lots of money for tackle (see tackle report) 26km have been found in Meghalaya (see Synopsis and the article to follow in a future issue) Tuska's (WCC) fall has been captured in a picture, and it appears that some of you have been caving.

Many thanks to the two non-members who have contributed to this issue.  Keep the articles coming, I can never have too many!!!

The cut off for articles and letters for the next BB is 3rd June.  Last minute news and dates can be taken until 6th June.

Regarding the stomp, many thanks to the people who gave the raffle prizes for the stomp and helped with the organisation to make it a great success.  I believe a brilliant time was had by all.

It's nice to see we are getting a few new members this year, hopefully other members of the club will follow Mike Wilson's example and help to encourage the new and prospective members in their caving career.  (See Mike's trip report).

By the way, for those of you who thought we had found a new species of caterpillar in Meghalaya in the last BB, they were wrong, it is actually a spelling error on my part, it should had been a centipede.  Nice pair of legs, pair of legs, pair of legs, etc.!!!


Letters and articles in the BB are not necessarily the views of the Editor, the BEC Committee or the club in general.

No prizes for this one!!!!


See if you can guess where in which cave on Mendip this picture was taken.

Answer in the next issue, and also on Belfry photo-board if you are visiting the Belfry .
