/ BLCC 2018 when?
Does anyone know or care to guess when the BLCC will be this year?
I expect it'll be around the same time I might want to head out to Kalymnos so ideally would like to know before booking...
Well its been in October the last two years at least so that's a starting point, that might be as precise as you will get for a few months until a date is released.
I take it it's not yet on the BMC calendar?
Yeah, I figure it'll either be 6-7 or 13-14 October. Not sure the later weekend would tie in with my plans.
I gather BMC comp organiser has moved on and so updating the BMC Calendar with such things may have fallen through the .cracks...
the comps committee meeting is in a few weeks and comp dates for the year should be finalised then. I imagine it’ll be around the same time, (early/mid October) and at Ratho this year
Seriously, it's definitely at Ratho this year?
That would be fantastic news! The 5 hour Friday night drive after work did nothing for my form last year.
If you can can just mention to the committee that 6th-7th are my preferred dates, that would be great thanks.
Nothing is definite yet but it’s pretty likely as the general consensus is it should move. Unfortunately Sheffield and ratho are the only two real options at the moment.
I believe they have a new organiser already in place from the 1st of the year. No doubt there will be an announcement soon as the BMC are very much into openness and communication!
It is likely to be the weekend of 6/7th Oct but will be confirmed at the meeting on the 6th Feb, Zoe Spriggs has just taken over as Competitions Programme Manager at the BMC and she is just awaiting confirmation from a few people (inc. Ratho) on bits before fully releasing the confirmed dates.

Me too. If it's at Ratho that weekend (can't do the next two) and it's raining and I'm not injured, it would be good fun to enter the veterans again, especially if a few other people did (the one other time I entered there were only 4 of us!). If nothing else the disincentive to shout "take" in front of a crowd of people would be good for my climbing.......
Slightly off-topic, but for those who have read comp threads in the past, you will have seen me commenting / posting regularly as comp comm chair. No more, I'm afraid, my time is up, and Iain Mackenzie is now in the hotseatAll whining and moaning to him please
I'll still be around, theres every chance I'll be the JP / Chief Judge at the BLCC's so see you there!
Ex -chair, BMC Comps.
We'll have to work on Buzz to make sure 6-7th are the only dates Ratho can do.
Cheers, that sounds encouraging...
>"theres every chance I'll be the JP / Chief Judge"
I look forward to the argument about whether or not I got the plus.
Does that mean you are available as a Judge at the CWIF?
Edit. Ps thanks for your time as Chair, I probably know more than most what you were up against!
I can do the CWIF (judging, not climbing, that is..........).
And it wouldn't be fun if it was easy
Just let me know what you want done.

Just top it. No doubts then.
