Plans are now well advanced for the Belfry BBQ. A team a crack charcoal enthusiasts have hatched a plan to ensure maximum pleasure during the evening.

Additional power has been laid on, a high octane sound system borrowed and the tunes are lining up for a good rinsin.

We don’t need to stake our claim to being the party hut on Mendip. More fun than all those other club socials and better than a poke in the eye. Get yourself down there to party to excess!

Once again the BEC brings you an event not to be missed. 

Plans are now well advanced for the Belfry BBQ. A team a crack charcoal enthusiasts have hatched a plan to ensure maximum pleasure during the evening.

The meat grinder has been working overtime producing wares for the coals and several barrels of beer and cider have been arranged. 

Additional power has been laid on, a high octane sound system borrowed and the tunes are lining up for a good rinsin.

We don’t need to stake our claim to being The Hut on Mendip. More fun than all those other club socials and better than a poke in the eye. Get yourself down there to party to excess!

Dear BEC Member, 

In celebration of 70 years of the Bristol Exploration Club there is to be a BBQ at The Belfry on July 9th 2005 and all members are welcome.  There will be the usual refreshments i.e. barrel(s) and it is hoped that there will be several exhibits detailing the past history of the club and its members.  We have found a supplier of tankards who is offering free engraving including a motto.  T shirts, etc. are also available (contact Tyrone Bevan).

Although it is a month earlier than required it is the time of year when consideration must be given to next years committee.  Nominations should have a proposer and be seconded.  It is vitally important that the person nominated wants to serve the committee and doesn’t decide to drop out within a couple of months.  This is an unfair burden on the remaining committee who have to carry out extra duties to compensate.  It should be stressed, once again that nominees stand for committee and not individual posts.  Nominations should reach the Honorary Secretary by the end of the first week of September at the address in the letter.

June 2005 - from Vince Simmonds, Hon Secretary - be sent to all members.
