-BMC Fixed equipment policy - the BMC are hoping to finalise the wording of their national fixed equipment policy. A copy of this is available at http://community.thebmc.co.uk/Event.aspx?id=2798
-Crag Access updates - from the access work Elfyn has been doing in S wales
-Next steps on Llangattock - Elfyn has been in discussion with the national park about the suggestion of adding bolts and lower offs to some of the routes at the crag.
-MCofS funding request - the MCofS have asked for around £170k over a four year period from the BMC to fund landscape and access work in scotland. The current proposal is to spend this on consultants, with a large part of the money to be spent on opposing wind turbine schemes.
-Discussion of specific routes to be bolted - there are no new bolting proposals on wiki, but we will hopefully have FA feedback re last meetings proposal on a new bolt and lower off at Foxhole
-Crag clean ups - The one at Pennard last autumn went well, suggestions for any more welcome
