A new edition of the newsletter is being prepared. All (decent) contributions are welcome. If you have a trip report, send it along and it will be copied on to the permanent log on the website (this link is to the log on the public site; these items and many more are also available in the members' pages). Remember that one day in the future you may think "what did I do during 2017?" and you will be sorry if you didn't put something on the log! Contributions for the newsletter can be sent to Lauren@derbyscc.org.uk.
Annual Dinner 2017
The Dinner and Dance will be held on 25th November at Stockport County football ground, a venue we have used before. Detailed arrangements are still being made but this is advance notice. The Dinner is always a great social event and a chance for partners to meet. Normally, at least 50 to 60 attend so make sure you get there. At the Dinner, we also give out awards for Caver of the Year, Mighty Miner and so on.
Change to secure website
I am pleased to say that the change of the website to a secure site has gone through smoothly. The site address has changed from http://www.derbsycc.org.uk to https://www.derbyscc.org.uk. The change will make the site more up-to-date and secure. If you log onto the site using the old address, a warning will appear on the home page with a link to the new address. Please update your bookmarks accordingly. Nigel (Webmaster)
Anton has been busy and set up dates for a load of meets, at least one a month. Have a look at the list (click the link below the news).
More about the Alderley Mines
The new edition of Chris Carlon's Alderley Edge Mines book is for sale from the publisher and from Amazon. Copies are also available at the Club's Open Weekends. The book has been heavily revised and describes all the main mines in detail. It remains a useful companion to the Alderley Edge Story published in 2016. Contact Nigel for further details. The cost is £12 plus postage.
