/ BMC bolt policy discussion 17 April,Grindleford
One of the items on the agenda is the recommended policy for bolt use in the Peak District. Wednesday 17th April ,7.30 pm.
You do not need to be in the bmc to have a say,either pro or con.
I would have liked to attend this but i can't attend with just two days notice.
There is a regular calandar of meetings fixed well in advance and advertised on the BMC communities pages with papers attached. if you look at the UKC BMC forum it has also been advertised earlier here (and on UKB). I bet your mum still ties your shoelaces.
For starters there was a thread on the BMC forum on here a week ago.
However I have it in my diary, so I guess the date was agreed back at the November meeting, and I'm guessing is probably in the minutes for that meeting. And it should be in Summit. And on the BMC website.
With this being a new thread, rather than a response to bump a previous thread, i assumed that this was the first notification of this meeting on these forums.
I'm just disappointed that this is the first I've heard of it. I wasn't aware of the calender posted on the BMC communities pages. Thanks for pointing that out.
Maybe consideration should be given to a broadcast email on these events? For people like me, who are still wearing velcro, you could select which areas you're active in and recieve an email notification in advance. It may lead to increased attendance.
The policy is now agreed. Of course part of the policy is that there will be crag by crag supplements for the forthcoming limestone guide.
Apart from writing guide books, canvassing opinion, agreeing bolt policies, having area meetings, advertising said meetings in every conceivable way (yet still getting stick for it) and being all round good eggs, what have the BMC ever done for us?
The velcro bit was good though... at least he has a sense of humour.
Talking of GSOH we now have a national hill walking rep employed by the BMC and he came along last night. I asked what his policy was on bolted walks and he said they will consider it alongside their indoor walking policy. We need such laughs as what is going on with the Peak Park is increasingly worrying.
Perhaps you should form the Mountaineering Council of Britain (MCB) instead?
How fat is your bird these days?

She's starting to curve spacetime. If I pre-place her at the top of a route, I sort of get pulled up, its brilliant. We're going to try and do a pregnant ascent of the Chief on Saturday.
Indoor walking is massive over here. I did my first 1 miler yesterday, not sure I understand all the shenanegins required for the outdoor game yet though, foof.
I dont get the velcro joke... :-( Maybe I went to the wrong university?
