/ 6.2.13 next BMC Peak Area Mtg - Gordon Stainforth guest speaker
Apart from an update on access issues, and an overview of the year
ahead, other agenda items include; ratifying the Peak Area general
guidelines to placing bolts and other fixed gear; the BMC Position on
Drilled Equipment; plus a proposal for fixed gear replacement at
Stoney. All the associated paperwork can be found on the BMC Community
website - http://community.thebmc.co.uk/Event.aspx?id=2794
On top of this, Gordon Stainforth will be our guest speaker, talking
about his book ‘Fiva: An Adventure That Went Wrong’ (Winner of ‘Best
Book – Mountain and Wilderness Literature’, Banff Mountain Film and
Book Festival, 2012). Gordon will be bringing along some copies to
sell and sign (or if you already have a copy, then bring it along -
I'm sure he won't mind signing it).
Hope to see you there.
I've just added the FINAL DRAFT Peak Area Bolt guidelines to the BMC Communities website - please go here http://community.thebmc.co.uk/Event.aspx?id=2794
Don't forget that Gordon Stainforth will be our guest speaker - really looking forward to this.
The latest Peak Area Newsletter is also on the BMC website.
See you on Wednesday.
