Annual Dinner - 2021
The Annual Dinner is now past and was enjoyed by over 50 members and guests at the Bramhall Golf Club. The Golf Club again provided great facilities and good food. There were the usual awards which can be viewed on line and also the photo competition. The photo competition entries can all be seen HERE. We tried to show a video made by Dave Dillon but the lack of a screen made this unsuccessful but the video can be watched here: https://youtu.be/QpNtT7VSpAE
BCA Membership cards
The issue with membership cards has now been resolved and almost all current members should have received them. If you have not, please contact the Treasurer. Please make sure you keep the club aware of your current address as you will not get your membership cards if you do not keep the club's records up to date.
ANNUAL SUBS DUE
Despite the general lack of activity during the year, some caving is still taking place and we still get a few visitors to the mines so we still have to cover these expenses. Therefore, this is a reminder that subs are now due again for the year 2021 (renewal date is 1 January). The normal subscription and BCA insurance remain the same so the amount due from full caving members is £30. Please pay on-line if possible (there are bank details on the members areas of the website) or send a cheque to the Treasurer.
DCC Shop now open
The pages on the website where T-shirts, hoodies, badges, etc can be bought have been revamped. The stock of each size is shown. Members can use this page and others (non-members) can use this page. When you buy an item, you will be taken to PayPal and will see your "cart" so that you can change the quantity or add more items. If you want the items posting to you, please add an appropriate amount for post and packing. If you try to order more than there is stock, you will be charged by PayPal but the Treasurer can refund you for the items unavailable.
Although the events on this website have details of trips during the year, members will find more details on the Club Facebook page. Use the link at the bottom of the home page and members' pages to go to the Club Facebook page.
