George: I'm now planning to join Michael P and Dave B on a Peak day trip (probably to Millstone), so I won't be at Reading tomorrow.

Speaking of which, we're currently a three, so if anybody wants to come and join us (leaving Oxford around 7am tomorrow) you'd be very welcome. Grinning

Same as Mary...any takers for a 6pm til 4am shift in A+E? Wink

So I've now got hold of a trailer, and have won this eBay auction for a ridiculously large pile of wood. I need to head down to have a proper look, but it appears it's mostly 4 foot long, two foot wide logs Shock

Is anyone free in the daytime this week to give me a hand loading and unloading? I suspect I will need to make quite a few trips, and I'd guess each of them might be 30 mins drive there, 15 minutes loading, 30 mins drive back, 15 mins unloading. Gratitude in the form of alcohol, obvs.

Jamie: I'm about during the day on Wednesday, so could help for a couple of hours (and, unlike doing A & E shifts, I reckon I'm qualified to drag logs about!)

Thanks, Niall. I'm just waiting to hear which days I can have the trailer for...

Anyone fancy climbing in Avon Gorge on Saturday?

Dammit. It looks like I might not be able to borrow the trailer for Wednesday. Niall, I don't suppose there's any chance you can swap to helping on Thursday, is there?

Steve: we may be busy on Saturday, but that does sound quite tempting... Who's going, and how beginner friendly is the climbing? (We're trying to include our friend/new OUMC recruit Alex in as many climbing plans as possible atm)

It seems a bit silly I have no idea what Avon climbing is like, given I lived a stone's throw from there for years Rolling eyes

Scratch my last post - I've just discovered how cheap it is to hire trailers, so now I have one for the next week. Niall, I'll be in touch about tomorrow!

Dave - I've never climbed in Avon before either, but easy stuff is always good Happy There are some friendly short multi-pitch routes that would be fine I think.
Steve

Plenty of fairly tame multi-pitch at Avon, have a look at Morpheus and Nightmare on Sea Walls, and Sinster on Main Area. Suspension Bridge Buttress and Main Area are awesome for VS/HVS/E1, especially Hell's Gates.

Lots of people claim the polish is intolerable but I climbed there for years and never found it any worse than other popular limestone crags. That said, I've heard Suspension Bridge Arete is getting near unclimbable...

I did a Classic Rock VS (Piton Route) in April and didn't really think the polish was bad. Have heard the Sea Walls are pretty bad though.

Suspension bridge arete was fine when I did it earlier this year. Hell gates was excellent!

Also I'd very much like to go climbing this weekend! Finish nights Friday morning then off til a 4pm-1am shift on Monday.

Tim and I did hell gates and suspense last week. Both were awesome and no issues with polish :-) Hell gates is amusingly easier on the first pitch if you are tall and easier on the second if you are small...guess which way we split our leads Rolling eyes
Anyone fancy climbing at Reading early evening Thursday? I need to leave just before 9.

Anyone recommend at resaurant in Oxford to take my parents to next Friday night? I'm up for graduation, so somewhere walking distance from Magd/center is best. We've done Mal Maison and Browns before... Can't remember where else there is.

Cameron et al what were the midges like at the peak? Have they settled down now?
Mary

They weren't a problem for most of the day, but we did find ourselves doing the 'midge dance' in the late afternoon just before we left.

High Table (at the Eastgate Hotel) is okay and quieter than Quod. Sorry I'm not doing your ceremony! Or upstairs at the Ashmolean.

Oh Ashmolean sounds good. That's somewhere new Grinning .

It is pretty good - better food than High table IMO, although not quite as close to Magd!

Hi! I would like to join the club for the starting academic year and was wondering if there were committee members around Oxford I could have a chat with and hand the form and money to? Thanks Happy

Matteo: there were a couple of committee members at the pub this week, so I'd suggest meeting us there next Wednesday!
