Where am I? DERBYSHIRE CAVING CLUB - HOME PAGE
The Club Dinner for 2014 has been booked for 29th November in Stockport. Details are available for non-members and members who can book and pay on-line. It's a great social occasion - try to be there!
Yes - we are on the ball this year! An excellent 2015 calendar has been produced by Purdie and Lauren and is available for sale to the public and to members. The price to the public is £8 and proceeds go towards the expedition fund. Anyone wanting a copy should contact Purdie. (Email to the Secretary if you do not have Purdie's email address.)
The next Open Weekend is some way off but booking is now possible. It will be 25/26 April 2015 at Engine Vein. The following Open Weekend will be 5/6 September 2015. There plenty of spaces available for reservation and space is always left available for the day.
Loss of another member
Sadly, we have to report the loss of another member, Paul Deakin, who died recently after surviving many years of illness. Paul is well-known in Derbyshire and the UK as a whole as a brilliant photographer and mine surveyor. Apart from being an Honorary Member of the DCC, he was also official mine surveyor for the Alderley Edge Mines. He will be sadly missed and our condolences go to his family and many friends. His funeral will be held on Wednesday, 17th September. If anyone wishes to have more information about David or the funeral, please contact John or Nigel.
Matienzo 2014 and 2015
A short report and a selection of photos are now available in the members' and public areas. If anyone has pictures to add, please do so. The expedition next year is already being planned and at present it looks like there could be 8-10 members on it. Speak to Pete C, Bill B, Purdie or Nigel D if you want to know more.
